The Closers Summary

The Closers by Michael Connelly

After three years out of the LAPD, Harry Bosch returns, to find the department a different place from the one he left. A new Police Chief has been brought over from New York to give the place a thorough clean up from top to bottom. Working with his former cop partner, Kiz Rider, Harry is assigned to the department's Open-Unsolved Unit, working on the thousands of cold cases that haunt the LAPD's files. These detectives are the Closers - they put a shovel in the dirt and turn over the past. By applying new techniques to old evidence they aim to unearth some hidden killers and bring them to justice, for 'a city that forgets its murder victims is a city lost'.

Harry and Kiz are given a politically sensitive case when a DNA match connects a white supremacist to the 1988 murder of Rebecca Verloren, a sixteen-year-old girl. Becky was of mixed race, and the case appears to have a racial angle. This was LA before the riots and Rodney King; the city was a powder keg waiting for a match. The detectives who worked the case all those years ago seem to have done a decent job, but something doesn't fit. Meanwhile Harry's nemesis, Deputy Chief Irving, is watching him. In the new 'clean' LAPD Irving has been sidelined to a meaningless job. Compelled by vengeance, he hopes that Harry will make a slip . . .

THE CLOSERS takes off like a speeding bullet and never lets up. Authentic, dark and complex, it confirms Michael Connelly's status as a number one bestseller and a master of modern detective fiction.

The Closers Reviews

'A scrupulously plotted procedural ... and all the excitements of a terrific thriller well paced by a cool and fast running narrative.' -- Philip Oakes * LITERARY REVIEW *
'There's a mountain of American detective fiction. At the summit are Connelly's Harry Bosch books.' * SUNDAY SPORT *
'A cracking return to form by Connelly, and we can only hope Harry Bosch doesn't apply for retirement again.' * IRISH INDEPENDENT *
'The Closers is more than just a terrific mystery that slowly builds into a breathless race against time, twisting and turning to the very last page. It is a fascinating portrait of a city ... It also highlights, with great sensitivity. 'the toll of violence over time'. However, as usual, hardbitten Harry [Bosch] is the main attraction. He's exactly the kind of cop you'd want to investigate your own murder.' -- Mark Sanderson * EVENING STANDARD *
'Michael Connelly is always reliable and The Closers is as dark and thrilling as ever' -- Carla McKay * DAILY MAIL *
'A return to form.' -- Maxim Jakubowski * THE GUARDIAN *
