*car by what *by what ruled a self inflicted gunshot Jack decides he wants to write his story But the he probes his suspicions grow about it possibly being a murder As he continues his research Jack lands himself into an FBI investigation that points to a diabolical serial killer While this case is referenced in arly Harry Bosch stories Harry doesn t make an appearance here But it s important to get the background on the case origins before Harry does get involved so that s why it is part of the Harry Bosch Universe Now regarding the story #THIS ONE IS REALLY DIFFERENT BECAUSE #one is really different because s a reporter not a detective or private investigator so he doesn t have cop instincts I had to check myself on occasion when Jack didn t react the way I thought he should have like a cop That s a tribute to Connelly because I think he got it right as a journalist In addition to Jack s first person narrative we also get the voice of the suspect which was pretty awful due to the subject matter but uite ssential to the story I njoyed this twisting and turning around the bend and back case I must admit to being a bit shocked at the nding A Love To Remember even though I had growing suspicions The narrator was fine but I associate Buck Schirner with the Monkeewrench series so that was a distraction And he sounds older than Jack Otherwise it was a very interesting story with lots of tangents Some things are better left unsaid so the saying goesI personally disagree with that sentiment While very few topics are considered taboo any a few cultural taboos still linger subjects upon which many writers still fear to tread due to its general unpleasantness Cancer used to be taboo So did adultery and homosexuality Taboos succeed in creating an atmosphere in which feelings never getxpressed and problems never get solved Taboos generally make things worsePedophilia is in some ways still a taboo subject It s probably taboo for a good reason as the word itself is cringe worthy It stops conversations dead makes veryone feel uncomfortable and brings to mind nothing but disturbing thoughts and images It s understandable why pedophilia is a taboo subject but it s also important to note that it s an issue that needs to be addressed Keeping uiet and turning Wow from the opening line Death is my beat to the chilling conclusion this haunting tale grabs you. The only way he knows how he decides to write the story But his research leads him to suspect a serial killer is at work a devious murder.
