Inaugural novel in the Harry Bosch series. I'd read it years ago when it first came out in French in the early 90's. I was very fuzzy about the plot. I kinda remember that the bad guy was someone from inside. Still I remembered the twist just before the last chapter. Harry Bosch becomes even better with age just like very good wine. His opening bow is full of angst and penned up anger. We kinda get an image of the man but he still have much, much to offer down the road. Connelly is a good storyteller, you get into the plot and see the action through Harry's eyes. Black Echo passed the test of reread for me.
