An activist attorney is killed in a cute little L.A. trolley called Angels Flight, far from Harry Bosch's Hollywood turf. But the case is so explosive - and the dead man's enemies inside the L.A.P.D. are so numerous - that it falls to Harry to solve it. Now the streets are superheating. Harry's year-old Vegas marriage is unraveling. And the hunt for a killer is leading Harry to another high-profile L.A. murder case, one where every cop had a motive. The question is, did any have the guts?

All of the Bosch books I have read so far are very good, but the narrarator makes this one not worth listening to. Listening to the voice of the narrarator is chore, and very dissapointing. This recording should be replaced, there is no doubt about it.
Loved the story. Plot was solid and pace was great. The narrator, though, sounded like Clint Eastwood in a Dirty Harry role. Distracting at first then but seems not to be as bad toward the end of the book. Connelly has not disappointed me once. Great writing always wins out over marginal narration. Highly recommend.
Yes- although I would have them start at the beginning og the series! My first two were completely out of sequence.. Now I'm going back to the beginning and doing them all. I have a long drive to/from work so I'm hooked on audible!,,
Yes although this is the first book that I found the end a little disappointing.
Complex, nuanced tortured
Other Harry Bosch mysteries
Never. It was a terrible reading-- like a snotty, over-dramatic adolescent, cheapening the characters, whiny and petulant. Irritating.
It made me sad. The story, that is.

The story is very well written in takes interesting twists and turns.
Replace the current narrator with the one from the previous book. This narrator is poorly cast. It is not appropriate for this story and it is really distracting.
The story-lines and now quintessential Bosch character keeps me coming back.
The growth and evolution of Bosch's relationship with his superiors and colleagues is always realistic and appealingly unpredictable. This book proved a continuation of the pop psych appeal of Bosch's development.
Giles reads the WHOLE BOOK like it's a Bud Light commercial (picture "Real Men of Genius"). Emphasis on every other word. At least.
The dynamics come out somewhat flat.
I guess I just got accustomed to the first five books featuring Dick Hill's excellent dynamic range and consistent but distinct characterizations. Oh well.
And now...back to..."Today we salute you, Mr. Harry Bosch Hollywood Detective Man..."
This and The Narrows are my favorites in the mid range of the Harry Bosch series. The plot holds together pretty well with the Conely twists
