    Edgar Roy - an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered....

    "One of my favorite Baldacci Books"
    Overall

    I usually always love David Baldacci books and this was one of my favorites. The only problem I had was the female narration of Michelle Maxwell's character. To me, she sounded like a whining, southern grandmother not the tough as nails charachter Michelle seems to be. I am not sure I ever got over the narration of her charachter (usually bad narration kills a book for me) but the story was good enough to get over this hurdle. I do, however, think they should look for someone with a more "crisp" no-nonsense voice.

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    "Great story - mind numbing narration"

    Story

    Michael Connelly once again writes a great story. The characters are well done and plot is intriguing. That being said, the narration was so horrific that I almost called my doctor for a Prozac prescription to get through the depressing narration. Titus Welliver made ZERO attempt to distinguish one character from another and his delivery was so dead pan that I almost gave up. Get this one on Kindle or buy the actual book folks.
