Ørkenstjernen

Ballard og Bosch er tilbage!

Der er gået et år, siden Renée Ballard skred fra politiet med al dets hadske bureaukrati. Politichefen lover hende frit valg mellem stillinger, hvis bare hun vil vende tilbage, og hun beslutter, at hun vil genoprette afdelingen for kolde sager under enheden for røveri og drab.

Bosch har arbejdet på en gammel sag, der hjemsøger ham, i årevis. En psykopatisk morder, som dræbte en hel familie, er på fri fod, og den tanke ødelægger Bosch’ nattesøvn. Det er hans hvide hval.

Ballard tilbyder Bosch en plads i sin nye afdeling som frivillig efterforsker, hvor han blandt andet kan arbejde med sin hvide hval. Men de må lægge gammelt nag bag sig for at få ram på en rå og ubarmhjertig morder.
