Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

LAPD detective Hieronymous "Harry" Bosch, protagonist of the highly praised mystery The Black Echo , returns in a procedural thriller set in and around the drug-trafficking underworlds of inner-city Los Angeles and the wastelands of Mexico. When Bosch arrives at a sleazy hotel room where a fellow officer has committed suicide, he senses that something is awry. Noncommittal superior officers, a diffident widow and tales linking the dead man to a newly created street drug called "black ice" (heroin, crack and PCP rolled into one) send Bosch down a winding trail of forensic impossibilities, brutally violent drug traffickers and an ultimately shocking case of mistaken identity. Award-winning Connelly's second fictional effort is strong and sure. His pacing could be better--too often he conveys the same information twice--but his plot and characters more than make up for a slow start. This novel establishes him as a writer with a superior talent for storytelling.

From Kirkus Reviews

Second tense, tightly wound tangle of a case for Hieronymous Bosch (The Black Echo, 1991). This time out, the LAPD homicide cop, who's been exiled to Hollywood Division for his bumptious behavior, sniffs out the bloody trail of the designer drug ``black ice.'' Connelly (who covers crime for the Los Angeles Times) again flexes his knowledge of cop ways--and of cop-novel clich‚s. Cast from the hoary mold of the maverick cop, Bosch pushes his way onto the story's core case--the apparent suicide of a narc--despite warnings by top brass to lay off. Meanwhile, Bosch's boss, a prototypical pencil-pushing bureaucrat hoping to close out a majority of Hollywood's murder cases by New Year's Day, a week hence, assigns the detective a pile of open cases belonging to a useless drunk, Lou Porter. One of the cases, the slaying of an unidentified Hispanic, seems to tie in to the death of the narc, which Bosch begins to read as murder stemming from the narc's dirty involvement in black ice. When Porter is murdered shortly after Bosch speaks to him, and then the detective's love affair with an ambitious pathologist crashes, Bosch decides to head for Mexico, where clues to all three murders point. There, the well-oiled, ten- gear narrative really picks up speed as Bosch duels with corrupt cops; attends the bullfights; breaks into a fly-breeding lab that's the distribution center for Mexico's black-ice kingpin; and takes part in a raid on the kingpin's ranch that concludes with Bosch waving his jacket like a matador's cape at a killer bull on the rampage. But the kingpin escapes, leading to a not wholly unexpected twist--and to a touching assignation with the dead narc's widow. Expertly told, and involving enough--but lacking the sheer artistry and heart-clutching thrills of, say, David Lindsay's comparable Stuart Haydon series (Body of Evidence, etc.). -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A marvellous crime novel 18. August 2002
Format:Taschenbuch
The Black Ice has been the fifth book of M.Connelly that I have read. So far, it is his best! The story is gripping, exciting, elaborate, suspensful, and absolutely well thought out.
The tensness is increasing permanently till the end with a finish that is quite surprising. In particular, I liked the way Connelly describes the character of Harry Bosch. You really 'learn' something about him and get some insights into his complex and 'different' personality.
If you like crime novels/police stories than this is for you! Although Connelly's way of writing is different from J.Ellroy or R.Chandler, his novels are absolutely comparable.
My recommendation is, buy the book 'The Harry Bosch Mysteries' where you've got the first three H.Bosch novels in a chronological order (The Black Echo, The Black Ice, The Concrete Blonde). Although it is not essential it is better to start at the beginning due to the fact that some 'small stories' are much easier to understand.
I will continue to read the other books of M.Connelly because he is a great author in a time where you find loads of rubbish in the book shelves. BUY IT YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Welch ein schwieriges Happy-End... 8. April 2007
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
"Black Ice" ist der zweite Krimi um Harry Bosch, den die Spur des Mordes an einem Kollegen bis zur Drogenmafia in Mexiko führt. Die Handlung ist auf hohem Niveau, das jedoch von so manchem späteren Bosch-Krimi noch locker getoppt wird (z.B. "The Last Coyote" oder "Concrete Blonde").

Das Pikante an "Black Ice" ist die neue Beziehung, die Bosch beginnt... Ohne hier zuviel verraten zu wollen, habe ich mich am Ende des Romans gefragt, wie in aller Welt Harry Bosch hier ruhigen Gewissens diese Beziehung fortführen kann, die schon an ihrem Anfang so unendlich belastet ist?? Aber Connelly hat sich das wohl auch gefragt (und Antworten gefunden) im Laufe seiner nächsten zwei Bosch-Krimis...

Aufgrund dieses merkwürdigen Happy-Ends nur 4 Sterne.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spannung bis zur letzten Seite.. 15. März 2009
Format:Taschenbuch
..bisher einer der besten Harry-Bosch -Romane, die ich gelesen habe. Die Wendungen im Plot halten die Spannung bis zum Ende und bringen einem die Figur des Harry Bosch näher als in anderen, späteren Romanen dieser Reihe - ausgenommen vielleicht "the last coyote". Alles in allem ein gelungener Krimi - wenn man noch kein Connelly-Fan ist, wird man sicher einer..
Er zeigt aber auch, wie sehr sich Connelly stilistisch weiterentwickelt hat von diesem ersten Bosch-Roman bis zu den letzten..

4.0 von 5 Sternen Intriguing and Brilliant 7. Februar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book with an intriguing title and cover is brilliantly executed and shows the depth of the author's resourceful mind. Michael Connelly's imaginative and knowledge are weaved together to create this fascinating plot, brilliant narrative and fast-paced mystery that takes us into the world of police than we have ever known; ie simple folks like us.

This mystery novel with its enlightening story, easy-to-relate-to characters and breath-taking pace rekindles my once waning interest in mystery/thriller books. It reminds me of Triple Agent Double Cross, which holds the breath of the reader until the very end. Connelly is the type of writer to go for.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Weaker Sequel to The Black Echo 20. August 2008
Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Be sure you read The Black Echo before this book. The back story and characterizations rely a lot on these books being read in the order they were written.

The Black Ice has many things to recommend it. Harry Bosch is a modern "noir" detective working in LA's underbelly, the sleazy streets of Hollywood, who sees himself as an avenging angel with no room for anything else in his life. That characterization is tested in The Black Ice when Harry is affected to his toes by meeting the widow of a murder victim.

The descriptions of drug manufacture, distribution, and dealing are powerful and memorable. The book has lots of exciting action.

You'll also feel like you've been taken on a well-run tour of Hollywood and Mexicali . . . to see the tawdriest locales.

But the book does go wrong, tarnishing lots of good writing. Michael Connelly inexplicably and unnecessarily uses one of the oldest and least satisfying plot devices in the mystery author's filing cabinet. I won't say more, but you'll know what I mean when the book is over.

The effect of hitting that plot device is like going from a smooth ride in a jet to a kid's soap box derby crate rolling over potholes. The ride just isn't the same. Up until the plot device is triggered, the book is clearly a five-star effort.

But you have better things ahead. The Concrete Blonde, the third Harry Bosch mystery, is a much better and more rewarding book to read.
