one other thing about Harry Bosch's name: he was deliberately named after the Dutch painter by his prostitute mother, who kept the identity of his father secret from him. when he returned from his stint in Vietnam, Bosch discovered that his father was a prominent L.A. attorney named J. Michael Haller, who used to represent his mother. the younger Bosch visited his father on the man's death bed and discovered that he has half-siblings. the illegitimate son of a prostitute, Bosch has kept his distance from the family his entire adult life
