In a case spanning 20 years, Harry Bosch links a recent crime vignette to a file from 1992, the murder of a young photographer during the Los Angeles riots.

Now, Bosch’s ballistics match reveals that his death was not random violence, but something more personal and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the debris after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the “black box,” the only piece of evidence that links the case.

When I started reading The Black Box I was hooked. The novel begins with the Los Angeles riots of 1992. Amid fires, looting, etc., Harry Bosch is sent to investigate the death of a young woman who was shot. But when he begins his detailed investigation of the crime scene, he is ordered to leave and deal with another incident. The case is handed over to a unit that was created to investigate crimes during the riots, but fails to solve it.

The story then jumps forward 20 years and Bosch, now in his early 60s, works in the LAPD Open Unsolved Unit. With the 20th anniversary of the riots approaching, senior law enforcement officials are once again focusing on solving some of the cold cases from that period and Harry manages to assign himself to this particular case because he felt that he owed it to the victim to close it.

I found this story to be a bit different than the previous books in the series as there are no distractions or twists in this story. It’s a more straightforward police procedural novel and the quality of the writing and narration is so good that you’ll feel like a fly on the wall watching every step Harry Bosch takes in his quest to solve the crime. F

rom the scant evidence available, Bosch’s progress in trying to solve the crime was painfully slow at first (as one would probably expect under the circumstances). But the progress is made and also the pace of the book increases quite dramatically as the story reaches its dramatic climax.

Even more than in the previous novels, there are clear signs that Bosch is getting older. This is sharply emphasized in the passages dealing with his domestic life; his constant struggle as an elderly single father to cope with his teenage daughter; his love of jazz music and the increasingly emotional effect it is having on him, etc. Also, Harry is taking more risks and not necessarily following the new, more politically correct way of investigating, which gets him into trouble with those in power.

Harry also acts more impulsive than in the past. This more personal and emotional side of Bosch’s character is a more salient feature in this novel compared to other recent books in the series and made it even richer for me.

Overall, I really enjoyed this novel. It may lack some of the plot complexity of some of the earlier books in the series, but I personally enjoyed discovering how Bosch’s character matures and reading a more traditional, straightforward novel about police procedurals for a change.

One of the best, but not without its stupidities. It begins with the murder of a Danish reporter during the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Harry is the first to respond, but it is never properly solved or investigated. Of course, Harry is obsessed, yet another, and his Cold Case Unit is investigating 20 years later. He fights with his boss, but again with someone else, he is warned by the leadership for political reasons and, like Harry, he goes off the tracks again.

He performs a Houdini action with a watch strap buckle pin, really, and is rescued by the investigating AI agent who almost inexplicably follows him to the hornet’s nest that Harry stabbed with a large stick. We get a father-daughter bond at a shooting gallery, only in America, but that’s the only filler. It still chugs along and is the usual smooth and easy read, and perhaps the author paid more attention to the plot given that it is his 25th book and an anniversary of the riots.
