    1. The ninth Harry Bosch novel is unique in a couple of ways. To begin with, Harry is no longer a cop. He has abruptly resigned from the LAPD and is now a private citizen again. Secondly, while virtually all of the other novels in the series are told from the third-person point-of-view, this story is narrated in the first person by Harry himself.Harry has been off the job for several months by the time the book opens. He has gone through the motions of getting a license as a P.I but he's not active [...]


    2. This is the ninth Harry Bosch novel and it marks a big turning point in his life as he has left the police force. During the course of the book he begins working as a private investigator which actually suits him better because he is a man who likes to work alone. I enjoyed this one very much largely because Harry is always in control. He continually outwits his opponents who include members of the FBI and the police. When he finally solves the case the reader breathes easily again and then Harr [...]


    3. Harry Bosch, newly retired and living the quiet life, was called by a cop from his past. The cop had been badly injured in a robbery gone wrong, while his partner had died. But he had something he wanted Bosch to do - and when he heard what it was, Harry remembered the case vividly. It was one he'd not forgotten; the murder of a young woman which was his case for a few days before it was handed on to another department. It was never solved - Harry decided he would quietly re-open the case and se [...]


    4. Harry Bosch is about eight months into his retirement from the LAPD and decides to do some follow up on one of his old cold cases. It's one that's haunted him because of the way the victim, Angella Benton, was found at the scene. It didn't take long for him to realize that he opened the proverbial "Pandora's Box" after a chance move put him in the crosshairs of several law enforcement agencies. You know Harryat just energized him.This was the first story in the series where Harry's narrating the [...]


    5. This is no news to those who read Michael Connelly - the man can write. "Lost Light" is tense, complicated and also has moments of compassion. Connelly's presentation of violent excesses of FBI post-9/11 terror policing was frightening. Does it really happen that way?My wife and I had the opportunity to meet Connelly at the recent Key West Literary Seminar. He is a quiet, very nice man, who was also an interesting speaker, and he did the most amazing thing. Walking up to me on the street, when I [...]


    6. The Hook. - Happily enjoying my way through the Harry Bosch seriesThe Line “There is no end of things in the heart.” the opening line and one that Bosch says someone once said to him. My search attributes it to Ezra Pound in Exile’s Letter. It’s just a beautiful quote. The Sinker - Lost Light reeled me in quite quickly. There’s something about this one. It got under my skin in a good way. Maybe it’s due to the two cold cases Bosch encounters. The first is the death of Angela Benton, [...]


    7. Another good addition to the series & interesting since he's now retired. I wondered what he'd do & this wasn't a surprise. Well, his actions weren't, but the mystery was in many ways. It was very good, twisty, & expertly set up. Each sharp corner had a good foundation that made sense afterward. They usually weren't telegraphed too obviously, though. A couple were just inevitable & there were a couple of coincidences, but they were very well done.The Narrows comes next. I look fo [...]


    8. Harry Bosch, Private Eye??? Really??? No more Detective Three Harry Bosch of the LAPD??? Hard to believe for us long-time readers of the series, but I guess we have to accept it.After twenty-eight years with the LAPD, Harry Bosch has hung up his shield. In the last book, City of Bones, Harry left his badge and gun and walked out of the police station with the intention of retiring, but I never figured for a moment that it would stick. I felt sure he'd be back in the saddle in the next book. Well [...]


    9. This book was grim. It looks at a post 9/11 world and how many will just make excuses in the name of keeping our country safe. It also shows how trying to do the right thing could leave you in a hole in the ground dead. Now that Bosch is no longer with the LAPD (read "City of Bones") he is investigating a cold case that has haunted him for years. A young woman working on a film set was found dead and half naked on her front steps. It seems that her death may be linked to a possible robbery of $2 [...]


    10. LOST LIGHT is book #9 in the Harry Bosch series. Harry is no longer with the L.A. Police Dept but he is still pursuing a cold case, the murder four years ago of a young woman named Angella Benton. Without a badge, Bosch must undergo the humiliation of having doors slammed in his face. Benton was employed as a production assistant by Alexander Taylor, a producer of blockbuster action films, and the opening scene is a stunning display of Taylor's arrogance. Harry was on the set of one of Taylor's [...]


    11. This time last year I hadn’t even read a Michael Connelly novel (shocking, I know), and I now cite him as one of my favourite authors and Harry Bosch as one of my favourite characters of all-time. This being the ninth book, and with Harry having left the LAPD at the end of the last story, I wondered what was next for this enigmatic and truly brilliant character. If I had to describe Lost Light in terms of where it fits into this series, I’d say it reads like a filler novel. It was intriguing [...]


    12. At loose ends after resigning from the LAPD, Harry Bosch decides to revisit one of his cases that was never solved. Angella Benton's murder has haunted Harry for years. He was taken off the case when the murder was linked to a two million dollar theft from a movie set. Neither case was solved. Now Harry is digging into the case, trying to see what was missed. But the LAPD and the FBI are warning him off, telling him he doesn't want to be involved. This, of course, makes harry just want to dig de [...]


    13. I read (or listen) to everything Michael Connelly writes, and he never disappoints. This is the ninth novel featuring Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch, who remains dedicated to uncovering the truth no matter where it might lead. Harry has retired from the LAPD, disillusioned by his countless battles with police bureaucracy and hypocrisy, but he remains haunted by the sight of a murdered victim's hands that were arranged by the killer in almost a supplication. He decides to track down a few leads to see [...]


    14. $100KSandor SzatmariThe money stupidHarry Bosch has retired from the Hollywood Division of LAPD after 25 years, handing in his badge and service revolver, for a PI badge and a Glock hidden in his house. He is still haunted by the unsolved murder of a young woman four years earlier, found strangled outside her apartment, her hands reaching out to him.She was a production assistant for a studio, and two days later a robbery occurs at the studios. The director, wanting authenticity for a scene of a [...]


    15. Engaging, exciting crime mystery with a wonderful feel good endingVIEWER’S OPINION:As I was listening to this book over a few days, I was always eager to get back to it. I felt like I was living an exciting life. I had feelings of hope, anticipation, and excitement throughout those days. At the end of the book I was happy. I felt elation. Life is good. I was energized. That makes this a great book. These are the kind of feelings I expect and hope to get from romance novels. So the fact that I [...]


    16. 7/10Another interesting Bosch story which doesn't quite grip like some of the others in the series, perhaps with him no longer being in the LAPD, but still delivers a good read with some of the usual traits this series excels at. It seemed to be the token novel in the series which touches upon terrorism as that will have been prevalent in America around the time this was written but that didn't add anything to the story other than just a place for Connelly to put across his thoughts on the subje [...]


    17. Lost Light4 StarsHaving left the LAPD, Harry Bosch turns his hand to private investigation and looks into a cold case involving the death of a young production assistant whose murder is linked to the theft of 2 million dollars from a movie set, and the subsequent disappearance of an FBI agent. This series is really beginning to hit its stride for me and getting Harry's first person perspective added some much needed insight into his personality. Len Cariou's narration of the audiobook is very im [...]


    18. Lost Light is #9 in the Harry Bosch series. Harry has recently retired from the LAPD and this is first case as a private investigator. As Harry prefers to work cases as a lone wolf, being a private investigator suits him well. He is able to interview various individuals on his schedule, as well as use his ex-wife Eleanor's help. It's great to always see Harry always be one step ahead of everyone else. He creates a timeline of the case, talks to everyone who may be involved, and uses his resource [...]


    19. Have you ever gone back into your collection of The West Wing DVDs and re-watched the "Isaac and Ishmael" episode? The one they made right after 9/11, intended to be a serious and thoughtful examination of the roots of terrorism? The one that, years later, seems hokey and preachy and inane, despite the best of intentions? This book is kind of Michael Connelly's version of that well-meaning effort. Much of the book is a long and intense journey through the suddenly expanded counterterrorism power [...]


    20. There is no end of things in the heart. So, Harry Bosch begins his story. He's been retired from LAPD for almost a year. One case he can't forget. One ex-wife he can't forget. One former cop he did forget, but now can't. All are things his heart will not let go.Angella Benton still haunts him. He cannot forget her hands in death. They are in prayer over her head. He was taken off the case when the Production Assistant is linked to a bold $2 Mill heist. The movie studio arranged a day loan for th [...]


    21. Moving further into the Bosch series, I am just thrilled to see Harry Bosch evolve into a life he should have had from the beginning. Rough around the edges and somewhat bitter amid the corruptions of the LAPD and cold cases that consumed him throughout the series, had me concerned that he would continue to live a life of a loner or a desperate introverted avenger, eventually ending up in a cell himself or more horribly, a coffin.In the previous book in this series, City of Bones, Harry has fina [...]


    22. Yet another roller-coaster ride from Michael Connelly!Wonderful stuff, with a surprise final few pages (that we all knew was coming sooner or later). That part especially made me very happy.The twists and turns come as expected, but in first-person narrative here. I thought this might be intrusive, but it was just fine after a few pages. And, now, thinking about it, the wonderful ending works much better as first-person . I wonder if Connelly planned that from the beginning?I very much enjoyed s [...]



    23. After a reading marathon that was last year, I am taking a more sedate stroll with some old friends. Bosch, obviously being one of them.Lost Light was in my local library, so what the hey, why not!It doesn't seem retired life suits Bosch, but no surprise there. Bosch has always needed a mission, and the Open-Unsolved case of Angella Benton is exactly that.Whilst all the previous Bosch novels are written from the third-person perspective, Lost Light is from the first-person. I am not usually a hu [...]


    24. The best fictional detectives are mavericks - hard-bitten, cynical and world-weary. Their job is a vocation. They are the unsung heroes who defend both the mourned and the unmourned murder victims.L.A. Homicide Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch, is one of them. He is the star of Lost Light, number 9 in Connelly's Bosch series.Connelly writes Lost Light in the 1st Person. His only previous book in this viewpoint was in The Poet (1996). This wasn’t a Bosch novel but is on my all time favourite [...]


    25. Harry Bosch is not a cop anymore but he acts like one in this book. He’s retired from the LAPD and is haunted by a four year old murder case that was never solved. Having nothing better to do he reopens the case and starts a new investigation. In doing so, he runs up against FBI agents and night club owners who want him to keep his nose out of their respective businesses. Besides the unsolved murder, there is the matter of some two million dollars in cash that went missing from a movie set. T [...]


    26. Time saver tip: if you've read my review of any Harry Bosch book, you've read 'em all. Since I don't reveal plots and reserve my comments to the overall book/author, characterization, style, etcI just don't feel the need to repeat myself as in most casesseries books if any good at all do remain consistent. The star ratings might change, but not my opinion of the series as a whole.Michael Connelly is a well know and very popular author in the mystery/detective and police procedural genres. Explod [...]


    27. Another solid read in the Bosch series. Bosch is a few months into retirement and he is ready to dive into some cold cases. The case that has haunted him for the past few years is Angella Benton. She was killed in which seemed like a sexual manner, but a few weeks later a production company was robbed and the cases seemed to be linked. As soon as Bosch starts digging into the case, he is stopped by the FBI and LAPD and is told that he shouldn't continue. Of course, Bosch doesn't listen and he en [...]


    28. Michael Connelly lijkt met ieder boek beter te worden en Lost Light is geen uitzondering op die regel. Het is voor eerst een Bosch-boek dat in de ik-vorm geschreven is, waardoor we iets meer van de kwetsbaarheid krijgen te zien van Harry. Het mysterie zit knap in elkaar en wordt goed opgelost, maar zoals altijd lees je de boeken omdat je wilt weten: wat gaat Harry doen? En waar zit zijn arrogantie zijn succes in de weg?


    29. I think I am in a bit of a rut with four star reviews for Michael Connolly books in the Harry Bosch series. But I continue to feel that they are much better then average though not quite of the excellent caliber. I must admit that part of that process for me is that I continue to be concerned about the morality of Harry and how he goes about his business. Maybe I should not take that into account when I rate a book but my moral compass just seems to assert its rightful place.Harrys righteousness [...]
