Thank you for sharing this. One enjoyable aspect of all the Bosch books is when when there are stories from his past, particularly stories of previous investigations that reveal how Bosch knows a particular character. I'm re-reading A Darkness More Than Night as part of this month's theme and have just reached the story of the Little Girl Lost and how Bosch and McCaleb know each other.

This thick-headed reader needs to do a better job grasping all that is going on in the books.
