The Drop

Tell Me a Story - Book Review

Author - Michael Connelly
Title  - The Drop
Stars - 4

The Drop:
A slipshod DNA test from a rape and murder has been pinned on a convicted rapist, who was only eight years old at the time of the crime.

Harry's inquiries into the incident are disturbed by the ostensible suicide by the son of a former police chief. The former chief demands that Harry investigate his son's death. In search of facts, Bosch and his partner unearth a conspiracy deep within the police department.

Michael Connelly is an exceptional writer and once more, in The Drop, offers a novel full of character complexity and ethical selections.

Bosch steers through difficult choices, now and then blunders, but in the end succeeds. For Bosch, The Drop, is a voyage of growth and self-analysis. Friendships are tried, and trusts broken, but Bosch endures as the detective, fans enjoy.

Michael Connelly's
elderly protagonist is imperfect and disturbed, an overall memorable character
