The Drop, Harry Bosch, Book 17

Author:  Michael Connelly
Year: 2011
Publisher:  Hachette Audio
Narrator: Len Cariou

In one morning, Harry Bosch gets two new cases. One is a DNA hit on a cold case of a teenage girl who was raped and murdered in the 1980s. The problem? The young man the DNA matches was only eight years old at the time of the death. 

The second case is an investigation of the apparent suicide of George Irving, the son of Irvin Irving, city councilman and Bosch's longtime nemesis. For some unknown reason, Irving specifically requests Bosch as investigator on this case and wants the chips to fall wherever they fall (at least that's what he says).

Michael Connelly never fails to entertain me. For over 17 books now he has managed to keep me totally invested in Harry Bosch as a character (remember, Bosch appears in the Mickey Haller books as well) which is a feat because I tired of authors such as James Patterson ages ago. I love these books and I dread the day Connelly decides to stop writing them. As usual, Len Cariou narrates the books flawlessly. Definitely recommend.
