Harry Bosch Wiki

The Black Box is the 25th novel written by Michael Connelly, and the sixteenth to feature LAPD detective Harry Bosch. The book was released in hardcover, eBook, and audiobook in the United States and Canada on 26 November 2012, "in part to honor the 20th anniversary of the character," and won the 2012 RBA International Prize for Crime Writing.


"In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved.

"Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the 'black box,' the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together."



The novel appears in episode 3x17 of Hawaii Five-0, "Pa'ani," being read by a Security Guard (Shawn Thomsen) at 23:43.
