Detailed Plot Synopsis of The Black Echo

This is the first book in a series featuring LAPD Detective Hieronymus 'Harry' Bosch. He investigates the murder of a man who served in Vietnam as a tunnel rat, just like Bosch himself. During the investigation, Bosch collides with his superiors and with the FBI, finds a lover, and finally has to take a very hard decision. Some insight is given into Bosch's personality, but the book is mainly plot-driven.
