John "Mank" Mankiewicz is a watch sergeant in the Hollywood Division of the LAPD in the early 2000s. On 1 January, 2002, he called Harry Bosch to notify him that a bone, possibly human, had been found on Wonderland Street in Laurel Canyon. The call had come in from Dr. Paul Guyot.
After Bosch and Brasher become romantically involved, Maniewicz chided Bosch about "fishing off the company dock".
Later, when Bosch asked for backup while trying to pick up Johnny Stokes, Mankiewicz said he could send Edgewood and Brasher. He was somewhat reluctant because Brasher was a rookie and because of their relationship. However, Bosch said it would be okay.
After Brasher died from a self-inflicted gunshot, Mankiewicz felt guilty for sending her into that situation. Bosch reassured Mank that he had done the right thing and not to second-guess himself.
