Bosch is back in
“Everybody counts or nobody counts” has always been Detective Harry Bosch’s personal mantra.

The son of Bosch's nemesis Irving Irvin fell off of …

Is nothing uncomplicated when politics are involved?
Detective Harry Bosch has the opportunity to continue his work in the Open/Unsolved Unit with his extension to stay on approved.  Harry has been working the cold cases long enough to get have a rhythm down so that he gets the work done and still be home for dinner with his daughter.  Doing his best to be a good detective and great father is a tightrope but Harry is a man always up for a challenge, even with a teenage daughter.  On this particular cold case assignment day, he draws …
