In L.A., a famous African-American lawyer has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial. Because the attorney rose to fame prosecuting cases that alleged police brutality and racism by the LAPD, the list of suspects includes half of the police force. Harry Bosch is chosen to head the investigation, a politically explosive affair that will take him to the ugliest corners of law enforcement. To make matters worse, Bosch's wife, a compulsive gambler, is missing. It's a delicate situation on all fronts--and an entire city holds its breath waiting for Bosch to solve the crime.

Michael Connelly, whose novel The Poet won the 1997 Anthony Award for Best Mystery, is already recognized as one of the smartest and most vivid scribes of the hard-boiled police procedural. Now, with his much-anticipated sixth Harry Bosch novel, Angels Flight, Connelly offers one of the finest pieces of mystery writing to appear in 1998. Bosch is awakened in the middle of the night and, out of rotation, he is assigned to the murder investigation of the high-profile African American attorney Howard Elias. When Bosch arrives at the scene, it seems that almost the entire LAPD is present, including the IAD (the Internal Affairs Division). Elias, who made a career out of suing the police, was sadistically gunned down on the Angels Flight tram just as he was beginning a case that would have struck the core of the department; not surprisingly, L.A.'s men and women in blue become the center of the investigation. Haunted by the ghost of the L.A. riots, plagued by incessant media attention, and facing turmoil at home, Bosch suddenly finds himself questioning friends and associates while working side by side with some longtime enemies.
Angels Flight is a detective's nightmare scenario and is disturbingly relevant to the racially tense last decade of the 20th century. Amidst the twists and turns of his complex narrative, Connelly affirms his rightful place among the masters of contemporary mystery fiction. --Patrick O'KelleyAbout the Author :
