The Black Ice is the second novel by American crime author Michael Connelly, featuring the Los Angeles detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch.


In the book, narcotics officer Calexico Moore's body is discovered Christmas night in a seedy Hollywood motel, from an apparent suicide. As the L.A. police higher-ups converge on the scene to protect the department from scandal, Harry Bosch inserts himself into the investigation. The trail he follows leads to Mexican drug gangs operating across the border.

The "black ice" drug is a fictional drug invented by Connelly for his novel.[1]
