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?

Don't like the Narrator. Dick Hill is the one for all Harry Bosch novels.
Hard to listen to this Narrative. Only continued listening because I paid for it. I should be.offered a refund or another credit. Very disappointed.
having listened to the previous Bosch novels by another reader, the change in voice(s) was very difficult to adjust to.. Bosch and Edger didn't quite sound like the people I had already heard in my mind..Story was good though
This isn't the best Bosch story. But, even if it were, it would have been ruined by the narration.
For some reason, the voice actor, Peter Giles, --or his director--decided that Bosch's voice should sound like he was ... constipated. That's the only way I can describe it. Yes, Bosch is supposed to be angry and frustrated through almost all of the book, but the narrator's voice sounds more like he is having a painful bowel movement. Instead of thinking about plot twists, I could't help speculating about whether Mr. Giles was getting enough fiber in his diet.
Since the vast majority of the story is told from Bosh's view, I would't have been able to listen to more than just a few minutes, but I was on a ten hour drive with nothing else to distract me but the occasional jackrabbit or roadrunner.
Maybe I should have just paid more attention to them and stopped the book.
Yes I would. This was actually my second time listening to it. This book is very good not just because of the amazing creativity of the author but because it seems like events like these are starting to take place in real life now.
Always Harry he is my favorite but I like Kiz just because of how intelligent she is and how they know she is on the rise.
I like them all
The ending made my mouth drop when I found out who killed the lawyer and why.
After having listened to the four previous audio books read by Dick Hill, this performance was certainly not what I was expecting. Peter Giles' performance is not anywhere near as good as Dick Hill. This change in readers will influence my future purchases of this story line.
Most Definitely - Great Story and excellent narration.
The surprises within the story line.
The Narrator is quite good, not sure about the negative comments I thought he was spot on and very enjoyable.
Burt's voice made a good book a really irritating never-ending movie promo. He uses his deep gravelly tone for everything. Dick Hill, who narrated the previous Bosch novels was incredible. I wish he had done this one too.
