    The new thriller from #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Michael Connelly follows Detective Harry Bosch and his new partner as they investigate a recent murder where the trigger was pulled nine years earlier. 

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. 

    Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Beginning with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveal that this shooting may have been anything but random.

Determined to find out the connection between his friend's death and a beautiful stranger, Sam infiltrates the Ligeras, one of Miami's most prominent--and dangerous-families. He faces a powerful but unstable mastermind intent on dividing his business empire between his three very different children, who may hold murderous secrets of their own. Sam is inexorably drawn into the family drama, amplifying painful echoes of his own shattered relationships as son, brother, father, and husband. And in his quest to unearth the killer before his cover is blown, Sam discovers one of the world's "dark corners."..a place where laws are inconsequential, and no amount of money or power can save you...
