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!!!

"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.

..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..

Einzelgänger Harry hat sich gerade von seiner Schussverletzung aus "Black Echo/ Schwarzes Echo" erholt und feiert - klar - Weihnachten allein, als es klingelt: ein Toter wurde gefunden. Ähnlich Teil 1) wieder ein Selbstmord, aber diesmal ein Polizeikollege. DIA-Beißer Irving von Internal Affairs, der Klotz am Bein, ist schnell zur Stelle und will Harry wie immer raushalten um die Sache vor den Medien zu verstecken. Doch Harry's Instinkt sagt ihm, dass hier einiges zu offensichtlich abläuft. Er kombiniert gleich 3 Morde zu einem Fall. Die Spur führt zu Banden aus Hawaii und Mexiko, die sich mit den Modedrogen Hawaii-Ice und Black Ice den Markt streitig machen. Die Beweisketten und Schlussfolgerungen sind wie immer lang, und Harry muss gegen Polizei-interne Widerstände fast genauso geschickt vorgehen wie gegen die Bösen Buben, doch schließlich kommt es zu einem spannenden Showdown.

Einzelgänger Harry Bosch, in den Verfilmungen passend durch Clint Eastwood gespielt, wird auch im "Black Ice/ Schwarzes Eis" wieder treffend dargestellt. Man muss das Buch nicht gelesen haben, aber wer die Stimmung mag, wird auch das "Ice" lieben. Harry ist ein Cop der alten Garde, der Gerechtigkeit noch über Gesetz stellt und sich ohne Schleim im Dienste der Sache sogar über Chefs und Richtlinien hinwegsetzt. Das macht ihn zum Außenseiter, doch die Cowboys unter uns werden ihn verstehen (hab ich das grad' gesagt? :-) Von ihm ist auch der weise Spruch "Nicht die Fakten eines Falls sind das Wichtigste, sondern der Leim. Und der Leim ist Instinkt, Einfühlungsvermögen und Glück". Und weil Harry noch dieses Gespür hat, ist er auch der beste vom ganzen Department! Alle 10 Bände zu Harry habe ich übrigens für die Fans unter Euch chronologisch als Lieblingsliste (No.5) geordnet. So long, lonesome...

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.

A cop who was 'in the wind' (disappeared) is found quite dead with a shotgun blast to his head. Suicide? Everyone thinks so--but not Harry Bosch. Something doesn't fit. In this second novel by Connelly, he revs up his caharacter so that we learn, piece by piece, just what it is that makes this shrewd detective tick. A PUZZLE! It is all a puzzle - the suicide is the center piece - before you catch your breath , the four corners are in place. You may think you know where the next piece will fit - but Harry twists it and turns it until it fits right where he wants it. L.A. - Mexico - murder - drugs -med flies- good cops - bad cops -monstrous bulls and 'The Pope' - how do they all connect to the death of the cop, Colexico Moore? Harry somehow makes sense of all these elements and fits the last puzzle piece snuggly in place as we try to catch our breath. Done with expertise, sensitivity , compassion and brute force coupled with the resolve of a good man and an intelligent cop. The surprises never end-but with MICHAEL CONNELLY, they never do! DON'T MISS IT - I'm on to the next in his series "The Concrete Blonde!

After reading the black echo, I found the black ice a more consistent story, far more interesting and credible. This time Harry is driven down to the US- Mexican border in his quest to solve a drug related crime of an anti-narcotics unit cop who apparently crossed to the bad side of the line. Harry, stubborn, bright and cunning makes his own decisions, shows a little quota of contempt and rebels himself against his bosses making him an example of self determination and a character of his own.
In my opinion, this work would have been a little bit better if in some chapters action were slowed down in exchange for more suspense, adding bogus elements, scary episodes and false clues to confuse and frighten the reader moving him down to the edge of his chair, Nevertheless, the book is compelling, original, very graphic, entertaining and though keeping on a main line of investigation all the way along, ends with a master twist (the best) that almost knocked me off my own chair showing the top quality of Mr. Connelly as a crime writer

This mystery has it all for the lover of the "hard-boiled" genre. Harry Bosch is a compelling, unpredictable, intelligent, and, of course, tragic character. He makes his second appearance in The Black Ice, following his debut in The Black Echo. After reading The Black Echo, I immediately purchased The Black Ice and was not disappointed. Harry's character is "true" and multi-dimensional. The plot is complicated but not beyond belief. The other characters in the story add to the richness of the whole by giving an emotional undercurrent to the events unfolding. Michael Connelly writes police procedurals that have intelligence, tragedy and heart. The Black Ice is, in my opinion, the best of the five Harry Bosch novels, although they are all worth a read, just to keep up with Harry.
