Angels Flight

Author(s): Michael Connelly

Special Order

When the body of high-profile black lawyer Howard Elias is found inside one of the cars on Angels Flight, a cable railway in downtown Los Angeles, there's not a detective in the city who wants to touch the case. For Elias specialised in lawsuits alleging police brutality, racism, and corruption, and every LAPD cop is a possible suspect in his killing. Detective Harry Bosch is put in charge. Elias's murder occurred on the eve of a major trial: on behalf of a black client, Michael Harris, Elias was to bring a civil case against the LAPD for violent interrogation tactics that had caused his client partial loss of hearing. Harris had been acquitted of the rape and murder of a twelve-year-old girl, but many, including Bosch, believe him guilty. Elias had let it be known that the trial would serve a dual purpose: to target and bring down the guilty cops and to expose the real murderer of the little girl. To discover the truth, Harry must dig deep in his own backyard - except that it's a minefield of suspicion and hate that could detonate in his face.
