Magtspillerne

Michael Connelly skriver to-tre bestsellers om året. Senest har Klim udgivet Hary Bosch-romanen ’Ni drager’. Nu følger endnu en.Harry Bosch har tre år tilbage i LAPD, inden han efter reglerne må gå på pension. Han arbejder hektisk for at nå sine sager, og en morgen får han tildelt to. Den ene involverer nye dna-spor i en voldtægtssag fra 1989. De peger på en yngre voldtægtsdømt mand, der efter sporene skulle have begået fuldbyrdet voldtægt som otteårig. Den anden sag handler om Harrys ærkefjende, den højtstående LA-politiker Irvin Irving. Irvings søn er død, enten var et uheld, eller også er han blevet hjulpet på vej. Irving insisterer på, at Bosch tager sagen.I sit arbejde med begge sager opdager Bosch to ting: En morder har uforstyrret kunnet husere i byen i mere end tre årtier, og en uafdækket politisk svinestreg trækker tråde langt tilbage i LAPDs historie og langt ind i korpsets ledelse. Begge dele får den hårdkogte politimand til at ryste i sin grundvold.
