Review: Lost Light

Lost Light
Lost Light by Michael Connelly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having left the LAPD, Harry Bosch turns his hand to private investigation and looks into a cold case involving the death of a young production assistant whose murder is linked to the theft of 2 million dollars from a movie set, and the subsequent disappearance of an FBI agent.

This series is really beginning to hit its stride for me and getting Harry’s first person perspective added some much needed insight into his personality. Len Cariou’s narration of the audiobook is very immersive and the hours just flew by.

The mystery is very compelling, especially due to the nature of the victims (an innocent young girl and a dedicated agent) and the diabolical motivations behind the crimes. Moreover, the pacing is much faster than in previous installments, which adds to the intensity and suspense of the story.

There is also some great character development as Harry reconnects with people from his past and several interesting revelations come to light. While Harry’s relationship with Eleanor Wish has become rather tedious, the inclusion of Roy Lindell is much more enjoyable as his character has always been very appealing.

All in all, an intriguing mystery with an action packed and very satisfying resolution.
