A large percentage of the cases worked by Harry Bosch are centered in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles. This can be expalined in part by the fact that he worked out of the Hollywood Division for many years. However, even when he has been stationed at Parker Center, his cases have often revolved around Hollywood. The following are some of the Hollywood connections:
