Kurzbeschreibung

1. März 2004 A Harry Bosch Novel
The vision has haunted him for four years--a young woman lying crumpled in death, her hand outstretched in silent supplication. Harry Bosch was taken off the Angella Benton murder case when the production assistant's death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the L.A.P.D., Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear into the guilty, he's on his own. And even in the face of an opponent more powerful and ruthless than any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.

Amazon.de

Michael Connolly has written seven books featuring the hard-boiled Vietnam vet-turned-LAPD detective Harry Bosch and Lost Light sees him ride again. The astringent and vivid realisation of the city of Los Angeles (quite as sharply done as in the great novels of Raymond Chandler) and the layers of complexity created for Bosch made him one of the most interesting and well-realised characters in modern crime fiction. Even the overused device of alcohol abuse in the detective was treated with freshness and imagination. Such non-Bosch titles as Chasing the Dime have their virtues, but most admirers will frankly be relieved that Harry is back in action.

When Harry Bosch left the LAPD, he took with him a murder file about a film production assistant killed four years before during a large-scale robbery on a movie set. The LAPD has decided that the stolen money was utilised to create a terrorist training camp, and there are moves to release the killer to enable the FBI to track down the terrorists. Needless to say, this does not go down well with the volatile Harry, and he soon finds himself up against his erstwhile colleagues at the LAPD and the implacable forces of the FBI.

In the earlier Bosch novels, it's clear that the flintily wrought characterisation and gritty scene-setting concealed some less-than-original plots, but here we've got a triumphant marriage of innovative, hard-edge narrative and a parade of characters quite as vivid as any in the genre. The set pieces have all the usual panache, and the larger and more detailed canvas is carried off with considerable dash. --Barry Forshaw -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

'Lost Light is every bit as good as Connelly's eight other Harry Bosch novels, which is to say very good indeed. In the hands of lesser writers, putting their hero into retirement might suggest that they were running out of ideas.In Connelly's case, it seems to presage an outpouring of equally excellent stories seen from a different angle: Lost Light, unlike the other eight Harry Bosch novels, is written in the first person. For the first time, readers enter the complex mind of one of the most interesting detectives in American crime fiction. Marcel Berlins THE TIMES 26/4/03 'Lost Light is a wry, character-driven autumnal affair...A lonely, self-deprecating figure, Bosch is an engaging throwback to a time before email and faxes when ageing private dicks learnt to play the sax and used expressions such as 'get jazzed'. Yet it is 'things of the heart' that really excite him... If ever a PI deserved a warm cuddly denouement, it is Harry Bosch.' DAILY TELEGRAPH 26/4/03 'It's good to see Harry Bosch, the hero of so many of Michael Connell's books, back in action after his retirement from the LAPD... Lost Light shows that Harry is still a maverick, continuing to go his own way despite warnings, and persevering until he has uncovered evidence of a shameful conspiracy. This new book shows why the Bosch series has made Connelly one of the genre's most consistently enjoyable writers.' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 25/5/03 'Lost Light transcends the usual narrow confines of crime fiction. Many American authors brought out books in the wake of September 11, often as exploitative patriotism. Connelly goes deeper: he shows how American society has allowed its values to be undermined ... this is a brave and complex book far removed from the baggy shapelessness of much recent US crime writing.' Jane Jakeman, SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 23/3/03 'The best crime fiction uses the extreme nature of death to examine the fragile realities of life, and Connelly is writing the best detective fiction out there.' Michael Carlson THE SPECTATOR 14/6/03 'A real return to form for Connelly, and a welcome return to action for Harry Bosch. Lost Light is a gripping, intense novel; Bosch is a complex but very human character and Lost Light will cement Connelly's reputation.' CRIME TIME '[A] brilliantly integrated novel.' THE SUNDAY TIMES 20/3/03 'Lost Light is something to be savoured: a new thriller featuring old sourpuss Harry Bosch. ... Weaving a complex plot - nobody does it better - Connelly holds the reader's attention right up to the satisfying denouement.' IRISH TIMES 28/6/03 'Warm, astute, persuasive portrait of conscience driven Bosch, his occupation gone, passing his days trying not to smoke... A first-to-last page gripper with dogged detective work, a shoot-out so unexpected that it had me ducking for cover, and an anxiety about police power that is proper, timely and authentic. All set out to prose that's too modest to brag about its muscle (Bosch sees 'a woman so pale ... she might detonate like a match on the Nevada sun') and so well tuned that it delights and nudges the memory for weeks after first reading.' Philip Oakes LITERARY REVIEW May 03 'terrific thriller' TIME OUT 10 September 'Harry Bosch is a great creation, complex, emotionally vulnerable but honest to the core and, as he defiesthe might of the FBI in search of the truth, his bleakness of spirit lifts and the book's surprise ending gives him a great stake in the future. Thoroughly rewarding.' IRISH INDEPENDENT 26/4/03 'Lost Light is a new high for Connelly ... by the way, there's an uplifting epilogue that could have been schmaltzy but instead turns into one of sheer joy.' DUBLIN SUNDAY TRIBUNE 11/5/03 'Bosch and Connelly remain one of the best cop partnerships in the detecting business.' BIRMINGHAM SUNDAY MERCURY 13/4/03 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein packendes Buch! 19. November 2003
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Lost Light hat wieder die üblichen Elemente der Krimis von Michael Connelly. Und Harry Bosch ist der Einzelgänger im Auftrag der Gerechtigkeit, wie immer. Zunächst befürchtet man, Connelly könnte, wie viele, auf den Zug der Krimis über den 11. September 2001 aufsteigen - doch dann kehrt der Plot doch wieder zu den viel spannenderen Motiven einzelner Personen zurück, mit überraschenden Wendungen. Wer die übrigen Bücher von Connelly gut fand, dem wird auch dieses Buch gefallen!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bosch is back - in a dark almost nightmarish novel 10. November 2003
Format:Taschenbuch
After two rather dissapointing (for the standards of Michael Connelly) novels, this on really ties in with his early books and will take your breath away.
Harry Bosch is bored with retirement. That changes when he starts to look into an unsolved murder. Angela Benton had been a low-level production assistant working on the latest Hollywood blockbuster when she was murdered in the foyer of her apartment building. The scene was carefully arranged to make it look like a sex crime. Too carefully; Bosch is certain it was staged. But why? And where is the connection to the million$heist at the film production? And why does the FBI warn Harry to leave this case alone?
Find out by yourself by buying this book, it is certainly worth the money, but be careful: the book is dark and takes you - at least sometimes - into the abyss of humankind. It also contains criticism of the civil liberties after September 11th and a small reference to one of the best police-action-gangster movies of all times "HEAT". The atmosphere is almost nightmarish and that gives the book the "special style", which fans of Harry Bosch are used to. There is absolutely no doubt that Connelly is a master-plotter and rightly one of the finest crime novelists in recent times. His complex character of the protagonist allows us even more insights and Harry seems to be more vulnerable without carrying the badge. The ending is - as usual - a big surprise but the good news is, there will be more of Harry Bosch in the future. The new Harry Bosch novel will be called "The Narrows" and is coming out in May, 2004. I can't wait!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Harry Bosch ist wieder da! 6. September 2003
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Gottseidank! Boschs Karriere beim LAPD ging in "City of Bones" zu Ende. Das ganze Buch war eine etwas müde Angelegenheit. Doch nun ermittelt er privat weiter und ist in alter Form. Fans mögen überrascht sein, dass er hier erstmals in der ersten Person erzählt. Da erinnert Bosch noch mehr als früher an Chandlers Marlowe. Aber dieser "Stilbruch" passt zu den neuen beruflichen Verhältnissen. Man kann nur hoffen, dass dies nicht der letzte Fall für H.B. sein wird. In "City of Bones" wurde ja angedeutet, dass Bosch für die Staatsanwaltschaft ungelöste Fälle bearbeiten könnte. Hoffentlich kommt es dazu. Einen richtigen Privatdetektiv gibt Harry irgendwie nicht ab.

Format:Taschenbuch
On the surface, there appears to be nothing new about this book - an ex-cop, Harry Bosch, who although retired, is determined to finally solve one of his big unsolved cases. Official noses are bent out of joint, Bosch is accused of meddling, etc, etc. So I started this book with a big dose of scepticism that I would like it. How wrong I was! This book was GREAT! It's one of those books that you can't put down until it's finished.
Bosch is determined to solve the murder of Angella Benton and the subsequent theft of 2 million dollars from the movie set where she worked, but before he can go very far, the LAPD and the FBI come down on him hard. The case turns out to have a post-9/11 Homeland Security connection and this brings in the FBI's anti-terrorism team. Bosch ignores demands to back off and enlists the help of a FBI insider with his own agenda - the FBI agent he loved disappeared in connection with the case and is presumed dead.
Despite being pursued by pyschos determined to keep the secret and being pursued by a rogue FBI agent with a screw loose, Bosch battles on to expose Benton's killers - and a hidden post-9/11 agenda within the FBI...
Outstanding and highly recommended!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Swift, changing, intelligent 9. April 2003
Von "famverh"
Format:Taschenbuch
Once again Mr. Connelly has given us a special tidbit.
For everyone familiar with Mr. Connelly's books, particularly his Harry Bosch novels, there is at least one surprise waiting on page 1. It is an incredibly intelligent, swift and seemingly minor change, which is not minor at all and which establishes Mr. Connelly not simply as an excellent crime-novelist, but a thoughtful craftsman among the literati.
Even though the book is certainly enjoyable to readers not familiar with Harry Bosch's previous endeavors, I recommend to read those earlier novels - or at least one of them - first.
To make a long story short without re-writing Mr. Connelly's book, you, dear reader, are in for supense, a multilayered character who will paint (with every possible contextual connotation of that word) and swiftly alter or taint your expectations of either him or the story. His ethics are as noble and strong-minded as his actions are often questionable, honorable and despicable at once.
Without ever painting a black-or-white picture of his characters, their motivations and their actions, Mr. Connelly leads you into a often heartbraking web of crime, thrilling supense, human nature and human suffering without forgetting to swiftly question or comment on contemporary issues or changes. Even in this respect, Lost Light is a daring and highly symbolic book. If the end is the beginning of hope or despair, happy or ultimately sad since possibly a symbol of deep distrust is a question every reader has to think about and answer for himself.
For everyone who's shocked by this philosophical account of the book - forget about it. You can read and enjoy the story simply - if there ever was anything simple about that - as an entertaining, suspenseful crime novel. And this ability to please on a philosophical or literary as well as on a purely entertaining level is most definitely the book's major asset. And perhaps its most shocking too- that is, if you truly CAN just forget about it.
