Book Review – “The Drop” (Harry Bosch #17)

The Drop“This was the first book I read by this author. I really enjoy reading crime mystery novels in reading this book made me feel like I was watching a movie. Detective Harry Bosc his an old detective who is trying to extend his stay with the LAPD. He’s thrown a case involving the death of a councilman’s son. Throughout this book he’s trying to determine whether or not the death was suicide or if it was murder but because so much is being hidden from him he finds himself going down the wrong path. This leads to him suspecting an innocent man for crimes he never committed or did he? The entire time he’s also still trying to solve an open unsolved homicide from 20 years ago. The book really takes you want to thrill ride and I hope you enjoyed as much as I did.” – Norman LaVelle



Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two.

DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? The latter possibility could compromise all of the lab’s DNA cases currently in court.

Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics. Councilman Irvin Irving’s son jumped or was pushed from a window at the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch’s longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry handle the investigation.

Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.
