The Burning Room
by Michael Connelly
IN THE LAPD’s Open Unsolved, not many murder victims die a decade after the crime. So when Orlando Merced finally succumbs to complications from being shot ten years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh but any other evidence is virtually non-existent. Partnered with rookie detective Lucia Soto, Bosch begins to see political dimensions to the case – a case where, despite the seemingly impossible odds, failure to find the killer is simply not an option. It’s looking like Orlando Merced may not be the investigation’s only victim – and that includes Bosch himself.
