As I recall, author Michael Connelly has used elements of previous Harry Bosch novels: the L.A. riots of 1992, the internal politics of the LAPD, the police chief as politician rather than law enforcement officer, and the involvement of the PSB (Professional Standards Bureau). He recycles elements, puts a new twist on it, and produces a new novel. Quite clever.

I would rate "The Black Box" at 4.0 stars.

I always like Michael Connelly and this one is no exception. However it is definitely "R" for language and gore.

Have read many of his Harry Bosch books. Definitely think the character is getting "old" - to be expected after so many years.Contrast Harry to the Mickey Haller series. There is a clear "freshness" to Mickey Haller. You read the books differently as well. With Harry B, it's "Come on. Hurry up." With Mickey Haller, it's "Looking forward to what's coming next."

Harry has developed an arrogance that has become rather offputting. His treatment of his partner, David Chu, as his personal gopher; his sanctimonious disdain for his lieutenant and chief, and how others drop everything to help him out...

Definitely recommend older Harry B books. Not this one

Well written suspenseful murder-mystery. I would say that this is one of Michael Connelly's best. Definately worth a read.

I have been following this series for years. He is the same ol' Bosch but I am not sure that Michael Connelly is really in to him any more.
