the burning room
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, Harry Bosch catches a case in which the body is fresh but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent.
Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Starting 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 reveals that this shooting may have been anything but random.

OUT NOW: THE GODS OF GUILT
Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP — 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in Los Angeles and back in the life. Far from saving her, Mickey may have been the one who put her in danger.
'Plenty of drama, danger, and suspense in this gem of a legal thriller.' - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
ebook exclusive: switchblade
LAPD Detective Harry Bosch seeks justice for the forgotten in this original story, published exclusively in ebook and audio formats.
An anonymous tip puts Bosch on a case that has remained unsolved for decades, the vicious stabbing of a teenage boy whose body was found in an abandoned Old Hollywood restaurant. Cold cases are often the toughest: With no body, no murder scene, and no fingerprints, Bosch nevertheless gets lucky when DNA evidence from the murder weapon points to a known killer. But the DA insists that science alone is not enough — he needs the case to be bulletproof before he'll take it to court.
