The bones of a boy are found in one of the canyons, next to a street called Wonderland Avenue on the first day of the new year.

Welcome back to the Hollywood division of LAPD - where Harry Bosch is back on the Homicide table, with as single partner (Edgar) after Kiz was promoted to downtown in an earlier book. And they are on call in that day - mainly dealing with the usual suicides - January 1 is one of those days.

When the bones are dated, they turn out to be 20-30 years old which would usually make the case almost impossible to solve. Except in this case, the detectives seem to have the opposite issues - there seem to be too many possible suspects. And it also causes Harry a lot of flashbacks - he could have been this child - which clouds his mind occasionally.

And in the middle of all that, Harry manages to fall in love with a new cop, Julia Brasher. He is not supposed to - there are rules about that and it also blunts some of his reactions a bit - and that, combined with his connection to the boy, almost costs everyone a lot. In fact it ends up with another dead body - which will probably stay on his mind for a long time to come.

When the truth about the case finally gets into the light, it turns out to be sadder than anyone could have imagined. Cases involving kids are always hard but sometimes they hit especially hard - both the detectives who work them (Edgar has a child after all) and the reader (because it sounds way too real).

The end of the novel was not exactly unexpected - it closes a chapter for Bosch. Where we are going from here is unclear - so we will see what comes next.

The next Connelly book is one of his rare non-series books. So Bosch will wait a bit until I get back to him. ( )

City of Bones, the eighth book of the Harry Bosch series, finds Bosch beginning the new year with two suicides, the revelation of a murdered child, and the acquaintance with an attractive young woman, newly minted officer Julia Brasher, who is ambitious to become a detective.
During a moment of intimacy with Julia, Harry reveals a preposterous piece of luck which occurred to him during battle in the tunnels of Viet Nam. He uses this to measure his core beliefs: that he no longer has any fear, and that "It made me sort of reckless;" that he has a destiny or mission, "Call it blue religion ..... it's the belief that this won't just go by. That those bones came out of the ground for a reason. That they came out of the ground for me to find, and for me to do something about. And that's what holds me together and keeps me going."
Bosch leaves The City of Bones defeated, realizing his raison d'être was hollow: "The very thing he thought he needed the most was the thing that drew the shroud of futility around him."

When the bones of a boy are found scattered in the Hollywood Hills, Harry Bosch is drawn into a case that brings up dark memories from his past.

Unearthing hidden stories, he finds the child's identity and reconstructs his fractured life, determined that he won't be forgotten. At the same time, a new love affair with a female cop begins to blossom - until a stunningly blown mission leaves him in more trouble than ever before. The investigation races to a shocking conclusion and leaves Bosch on the brink of an unimaginable decision . . .

"You know," Bosch whispered, "I'm starting to think it comes as a relief when you tell it's just the cops after that knock. At least then they know it's not an earthquake."
