Connelly is a master of this type of writing. I've enjoyed a few other of his novels, and ripped through this one at speed. Harry Bosch, the taciturn LAPD detective, figures importantly in this book, and plays a role in the interesting denoument.
Here are the opening words of this book, which are repeated at least twice later on:
Cops lie. Lawyers lie. Witnesses lie. The vicitms lie.
