The Drop, by Michael Connelly
This book seems to be more about politics (city, office, personal) than crime solving -- the phrase "high jingo" is used a lot. Harry Bosch is assigned to two cases, the suspicious death of Irvin Irving's son, and the cold case murder of a young student from Ohio. Having known Harry for 20 years, I'm just not sure he could so easily get past Hannah Stone's work running a halfway house for paroled felons, convicted of sexually based crimes. By no means bad, but perhaps not his best.
