When an African American lawyer, infamous for his lawsuits alleging racism by LAPD police officers, is murdered on the eve of a sensational trial, Harry Bosch, facing a suspect list that includes half the department, is assigned the case
Reviews (7)
When a prominent African-American criminal defense attorney is murdered in downtown Los Angeles, Harry Bosch get assigned the case. Unfortunately, the primary suspects are elite detectives in the city’s Robbery Homicide Division. The case is a political loser. If he arrests a cop, he loses the respect of his fellow officers. If he doesn’t arrest a cop, the city will erupt in a riot.

Oh, and Bosch’s year-old marriage is falling apart.

Angels Flight is Michael Connelly’s sixth Harry Bosch novels, and like the previous ones, I couldn’t put it down. Connelly writes a tight, well-paced whodunit. The twists and turns of the investigation keep your eyes glued to the page even as your empathy for the investigator grows because of his personal crisis. You want Bosch to solve the crime and save his marriage. But can he really do both?

Connelly has his pulse on the post-Rodney King antipathy between Los Angeles’ black residents and the LAPD. This lends verisimilitude to the novel’s portrait of rogue police officers, race hustlers, and bureaucratic fixers. In the end, everyone gets what they want, though not in the way they expected. Angels Flight is a great read, probably the best of the first six installments in Connelly’s twenty-novel Bosch series.

Harry Bosch and his teammates, Jerry Edgar and Kiz Rider, inherit a murder case loaded with booby traps that could have far reaching consequences for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
A prominent black attorney, Howard Elias, is murdered while a passenger on the Angels Flight trolley. Elias has been working on a legal defense for a man accused of kidnapping and murdering a young girl in a terrible manner. Elias’ murder fans the flames of racial hatred causing riots and looting in different parts of the city. Many people believe that members of the LAPD were responsible for his death. The situation reminded me of Rodney King who was beaten severely in 1991 by the LAPD which resulted in terrible race riots.
The parents of the murdered girl are quite wealthy. The father, Sam Kincaid, owns many car dealerships around the Los Angeles area and uses bizarre advertising techniques to bring in business. He reminded me of an actual Southern California car dealer, Cal Worthington, whose slogan set to music was, “Go See Cal, Go See Cal.”
Several more murders ensue and the FBI is brought in to help the LAPD. Besides having to work with the FBI and other “unfriendly” police departments, Harry Bosch has a personal problem which causes minor distractions at times; his wife Eleanor is unhappy with their marriage and is threatening to leave him. This area of the story is a rather weak one and we never learn exactly what Eleanor’s real problem is.
Altogether it’s a fascinating story with a complex plot that will keep you turning pages until the surprise ending unfolds.

There are few angels to be found in Michael Connelly's broodling twisted Angels Flight. Outwardly the investigation of the murder of a prominent black lawyer on the edge of a case which would blacken LA"s Police Department the story looks into his flaws as well as the unsavoury aspects of some of LA's finest. The tale has many turns and twists and new characters emrge throughout the book. As lead detective in the case Bosch is in the middle of all the mud and a strikingly downer of an ending. Connelly successfully makes us feel the need for a long hot shower after reading Angels Flight.

Michael Connelly has to be one of the finest thriller and detective authors ... his work cannot be put down once the reading is initiated. Collecting all of his books, slowly but surely... Harry Bosch is a finely tuned character with a true sense of realism, conflicts, successes and disappointments. Also, the Bosch TV series is also a winner, perhaps because of the fine lead actor and the fact that Connelly is an executive producer of the series.

These novels are as engrossing as anything I have read. Each one wraps me in the contemporary noir of L.A. crime drama. I finish one and pick up another. The Amazon series turned me on to thee books and has the same feel as the books to me. I hope Michael Connelly is writing faster than I can read cause I don't know what I will do when I read the last one. Start over I guess.

Harry Bosch has always been introspective and introverted: that is part of his mystique and charm. In "Angels Flight" his partner, Kiz Rider, lovingly refers to him as being one of those "morose detectives who never say much of anything to anybody." However, in this novel Harry is even more morose, more soul-searching than in most that I have read. There are the usual ruminations about his tragic childhood and the references to his experiences in Vietnam. But in just about every other chapter, Bosch takes a close look at himself. Here are just two examples:

"The idea of a man leaving his mark with the one shot he's given appealed to him... he had the feeling that it was still out there waiting for him. He had yet to take his one shot."

"He knew somehow that he would be spared, that the righteous man was beyond the grasp of the fallen."

There are plenty of reasons for this constant self-inspection in "Angels Flight": his marriage to Eleanor Wish is rapidly dissolving; his actions might set the whole city on fire, literally; and his friendship with an old partner is heading down a very, very dangerous path. And all this gravitates around a brutal execution on a Los Angeles landmark, the Angels Flight. Bosch is quick to grasp that angels can fly two ways: upward to heaven or downward with the other fallen angels.

Time and again, Michael Connelley has proven himself to be one of our generation's most gifted writers. He is not just a mystery/crime novelist. And "Angels Flight" is as much a brilliant literary work as anything else that came out that year.
