In The Drop, Harry Bosch is working for the cold cases department and suddenly finds he is called on to investigate two cases at once. The first is an apparent suicide of the son of a leading politician – with all the accompanying fallout dealing with a long-term enemy of the police force could bring. The other is a puzzling murder in which the suspect matching DNA from the scene would have been a child at the time of the crime. In this book, Harry meets Hannah Stone, the therapist of one of the suspects. It also features his daughter, Maddie.

This is another book in the Harry Bosch series from Michael Connelly. There are strong connections to another book in this series, The Dollmaker, so best to read that first. I particularly liked that we followed two story lines, the first being a court case with Harry Bosch unusally appearing as the defendant, the second being a new investigation into a murder. On the personal level, we found out some more about Harry’s relationship with Sylvia – but, strangely, no mention of Harry’s daughter at all (in other books, she lives with him and is quite significant in the story).
This is another Harry Bosch novel from Michael Connelly. I liked some of the back story where Bosch duels with his new statistics-led boss and has to get creative in order to continue with the investigations that matter to him. I found the main plot rather tenuous and didn’t buy into it – not one of Connelly’s best.
