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?

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

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.
I usually listen while driving ,Connelly makes me look forward to my trips .Each book draws me in and is addicting
I think this narrator must be the same guy who narrates the overly dramatic animal shows that I can't stand watching. Every sentence is read with great drama, and all interactions between characters sound like pivotal moments (when most of them are not). I personally found this super annoying and the reading really took away from the story for me. Listen to the clip before buying!
Even though handled with relative delicacy, the topics of sadomasochism and paedophilia as addressed in this book might be bothersome to the squeamish. Notwithstanding that aspect, this is among the more skilfully woven stories from Connelly.
Another hard hitter by Connelly.
Peter Giles' voice just seemed too intense for the start of this book.
At first, I found myself just going through the motions with this book; however, as I came to care about the parties involved, and the depth of the rabbit hole opened, I was drawn in.
I was nearly moved to tears as Bosch's former partner described what it felt like to have a child predator in his midst and to feel his loss of control. I was disgusted by leaks and enraged by arbitrary political decisions made by police brass.
Finally, I was enraptured by tumultuous events reminiscent of America's past, her present, and her future.
Bosch keeps getting better and better! awesome story and the plot keeps you guessing. if you love this character you can't fail.
where was Dick Hill when you needed a great narrator. I don't think I can listen to these books any more with this narrator.
