– Bosch thinks since Samuel Delacroix abused Arthurvsince he abused the mom

– Harry also thinks Waits did his research and claimed the killing in order to escape

– Bosch and Edgar grill Samuel and get a confession

– Again Harry thinks he did not do it even though they arrest him

– Edgar’s turn to hose out the car

– Even though Edgar is skeptical that Samuel could carry a body up to the canyon, so he suggested he test it out

– Edgar fails miserably

– Bosch tells Brasher he will go and visit his daughter
