Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two.  DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a twenty-nine-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? The latter possibility could compromise all of the lab’s DNA cases currently in court.  Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics. Councilman Irvin Irving’s son jumped or was pushed from a window at the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch’s longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry handle the investigation.  Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown to authorities for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Connelly gives yet another virtuoso performance in how to write crime novels (this is his twenty-fourth and one of his most skillful yet).” Daily Mail (London)
“The Drop is another winner from Connelly, one of the best crime story writers on the scene today. Each new novel refines his talent and makes its story one to be remembered. So get ready to celebrate. Connelly has a new book and Harry is back. Hallelujah!” Huffington Post
“Mr. Connelly is superb at building suspense through the accretion of detail.” Wall Street Journal
“In The Drop, Connelly displays a sure-footed, suspense-fueled noir novel that will keep readers turning pages into the darkest hours.” Boston Globe
“The Drop is one of those Harry Bosch books that starts with a bang and stays strong all the way through.” New York Times
“Bosch is one of the best detectives in crime fiction, and Connelly continues to amaze with his latest effort.” Associated Press
“A lesser novelist would have manipulated the cases to connect with each other. Connelly’s more subtle strategy is to allow each case to get to Harry in ways that further define his character.” Columbus Dispatch
“Readers love to root for the antiestablishment, bureaucrat-hating Bosch—there’s some high jingo in every office, after all—but where Connelly really excels is at giving us both sides of the equation. Does Harry’s complete unwillingness to bend cause more harm than it saves? Connelly makes us think about that, even though we’d much rather celebrate Harry’s never-give-an-inch approach to life. Crime fiction with a dose of the ambiguity-sodden real world.” Booklist (starred review)
“All of Connelly’s considerable strengths are on display: the keen eye for detail and police procedure, lots of local LA color, clever plotting, and—most important—the vibrant presence of Harry Bosch.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The author’s sure-footed and psychologically incisive writing provides yet another solid, satisfying example of suspenseful and agile storytelling, delivered with his trademark tight style and craftsmanship.” Mystery Scene
“Master crime writer Connelly gives his favorite detective two cases to solve—and doubles the suspense.” People
“Connelly tightly twists the two cases with conflicting power grabs, plausible procedural barriers, and unexpected snafus to support his credible plot. Furthering his noble cause to root out evil, Bosch exhibits an unshakable and highly respected integrity that will not be swayed from the truth. If Connelly’s engaging plot doesn’t hit you between the eyes, Bosch’s insights and integrity will. Mystery fans as well as general readers will appreciate this engrossing novel.” Library Journal
