Le meurtre de la photojournaliste danoise Anneke Jespersen, lors des émeutes de Los Angeles en 1992, n'a jamais été résolu. C'est Harry Bosch lui-même qui avait pu faire les premières constatations la nuit du meurtre, une nuit où la police avait très peu de temps, dans une ville à feu et à sang.
Or c'est encore lui qui pourra reprendre l'enquête, exactement 20 ans après les faits. Et Harry, toujours aussi tenace, ne lâchera pas avant d'avoir identifié le meurtrier. Après tout, c'est comme dans les catastrophes aériennes, il doit bien y avoir une « boîte noire » qui vous permette de remonter le temps et vous donne un point de départ...Ce roman policier inédit de Michael Connelly a été sélectionné par Publishers Weekly comme l'un des meilleurs livres de l'année 2012. Il n'a pas encore été traduit en français.
Harry Bosch is facing the end of the line. He's been put on the DROP - Deferred Retirement Option Plan - and given three years before his retirement is enforced. Seeing the end of the mission coming, he's anxious for cases. He doesn't have to wait long!
LAPD Detective Renee Ballard and Harry Bosch come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor - but was this flame kept alive, or a secret that was meant to be snuffed out?

Now that mentor, J.J. Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow hands Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before - the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals. Bosch brings the murder book to Renee Ballard and asks her to help him find what about the case lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. That will be their starting point. The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a worrying question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?
