This.is the latest of three books in the small Jack McEvoy series.


McCoy works for a small L.A. company reporting on abuse of consumer rights and other types of malfeasance.  Reading the unusual details of a woman's death leads McEvoy to reports of similar unusual deaths and what these women in other areas of the U.S. had in common: mail order DNA testing.


I found the book rather stodgy. Unlike his Harry Bosch /LAPD books I found I was forcing myself to read on. And so many L.A. roads, boulevards, avenues etc are name-checked that in the unlikely event I should drive there I shouldn't need a map.

      I loved the Michael Connelly books about his LA detective Hieronymous Bosch and didn't really want to watch Bosch the TV show starring Titus Welliver in the title role, but then my son asked us to get Amazon Prime and finding myself with nothing to watch I stuck this on. Two days later I had watched both seasons and a couple of weeks later I re-watched them. It is such a fantastic series. LA is as much a character as any of the actors and Welliver is Bosch. Anyone else watched it?

      This is the latest Bosch and I thought it was a cracker.
      I felt so involved with Bosch and his efforts to carry out a dying plutocrat's instructions meanwhile assisting in hunting down a serial rapist.  I'm always gunning for him  - he's intelligent, qick-thinking, has 'values' and is effective.

      I hadn't read a Michael Connelly for ages and in this 2015 one where Bosch, having retired, gets asked to help the defence counsel, is as absorbing as per usual.

      Former FBI agent Rachel Walling is working a dead-end stint in South Dakota when she gets the call she's been dreading for four years. The Poet is back. And he has not forgotten Rachel. He has a special present for her.
      Harry Bosch is adjusting to life in Las Vegas as a private investigator and a new father. He gets a call, too, from the widow of a friend who died recently. Previously in his FBI career, the friend worked on the famous case tracking the killer known as the Poet. This fact alone makes some of the elements of his death doubly suspicious.
      And Harry Bosch is heading straight into the path of the most ruthless and inventive murderer he has ever encountered . . .
