Opening paragraphs..........................

    Bosch didn't mind the wait.  The view was spectacular.  He didn't bother with the waiting room couch.  Instead he stood with his face a foot from the glass and took in the view that ranged from the rooftops of downtown to the Pacific Ocean.  He was fifty-nine floors up in the U. S. Bank Tower, and Creighton was making him wait because it was something he always did, going all the way back to his days at Parker Center, where the waiting room only has a low-angle view of the back of City Hall.  Creighton had moved a mere five blocks west since his days with the Los Angeles Police Department but he certainly had risen far beyond that to the lofty heights of the city's financial gods.
