Signed first printing of Connelly's third police procedural starring Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch.
Very good plus in near fine jacket.
"It was always there–the idea of revenge–flickering in some part of his mind with the distant memories of his mother."
Third in the Harry Bosch series by Connelly, onetime crime journalist turned prolific crime novelist, former president of the Mystery Writers Association, and winner of multiple awards from genre associations in multiple countries. In THE CONCRETE BLONDE, LAPD Detective Bosch confronts the possibility that he may have accidentally murdered a startled, innocent man in a catastrophically mismanaged home invasion, rather than heroically hunting down a serial killer, as he meant to do – a common hazard of his chosen profession, but one the public, and the law, frown upon from time to time. Well-received and highly praised as both a courtroom drama and investigative thriller.
