THE BLACK ECHO. Michael Connelly.


Boston: Little Brown, 1992. First edition. Hardcover. First edition of the author's first book, signed by Connelly on the title page. Lacking the blue '$5.00 Consumer Rebate!' wrap-around band. An important debut, of not only the writer, but also the lead character, Harry Bosch. Winner of the Mystery Writers' Edgar Award for 1992. For maverick LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal...because the murdered man was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who had fought side by side with him in a hellish underground war. Now Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit. Pitted against enemies inside his own department and forced to make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, Bosch goes on the hunt for a killer whose true face will shock him. The Bosch novels are the basis for the cable series. A fine copy in a nearly fine dust jacket. Item #ESB10067
