The Drop

This is an okay book written by Michael Connelly. Harry Bosch is facing the end of the line. He's been put on the DROP – the Deferred Retirement Option Plan - and given three years before he must retire from the LAPD. Seeing the end of the mission coming, Bosch wants cases more fiercely than ever, and in one morning he gets two. First, DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches that of a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he involved in the crime when he was only eight, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? Then Bosch and his partner are called by the chief of police himself to a death scene fraught with internal politics.

This is the 15th novel featuring detective Harry Bosch. Connelly auctioned off the naming of a character on eBay. The fundraiser was for the DeKalb County Public Library Foundation. After 65 bids, the auction closed at $2,917.
