Title: The Closers
Author: Michael Connelly
Years after the death of a sixteen-year-old girl is ruled a suicide, detective Harry Bosch receives DNA evidence that reopens the case, which involves an investigation of a white supremacist with close ties to the LAPD.
The death of a teenage girl almost two decades ago comes back to haunt all of L.A. – and detective Harry Bosch in this spellbinding new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.
In Los Angeles in 1998, a 16 year old girl who had disappeared from her home was later found dead with a single gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, and although detectives on the case found clues that pointed toward murder, no one was ever charged. Detective Larry Bosch, newly returned to the LAPD with the job of closing unsolved cases, gets the report of a new DNA match that makes the case very much alive again. A white supremacist with close ties to the LAPD becomes a suspect but Bosch and his partner, Kizmin Rider, can’t take a step without threatening higher ups in the department.
And the case turns out to be anything but cold. Everywhere he probes, Bosch finds hot grief, hot rage, and a bottomless well of treachery and danger. Enemies inside the department make Bosch wonder if he’s been allowed to rejoin the LAPD only because they needed a fresh victim.
