Publisher's Summary

On New Year's Day, Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch fields a call that a dog has found a bone - a bone that the dog's owner, a doctor, feels certain is human.

That chance discovery leads Bosch to a shallow grave in the Hollywood hills, evidence of a murder committed more than 20 years earlier. It's a cold case, but it stirs up Bosch's memories of his own childhood as an orphan in the city. Digging through police reports and hospital records, tracking down street kids and runaways from the 1970s, Bosch finds a family ripped apart by an absence - and a trail, ever more tenuous, into a violent, terrifying world.

As the case takes Bosch deeper into the past, a rookie cop named Julia Brasher brings him alive in the present in a way no one has in years. Bosch has been warned about the trouble that comes with dating a rookie, but no warning could withstand the heat between them - or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a hard turn.

Drawing on the "precision-tooled twists" and "wellspring of authentically lurid detail" (Los Angeles Magazine) that have made him one of the fasted-selling novelists at work today, Michael Connelly has written a riveting, hard-edged, and unforgettable thriller.

Don't miss Detective Harry Bosch on the case in these Michael Connelly crime fiction novels.

    "Not his best"

    "breaks my heart..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, these series are awesome I love all of them.


    What other book might you compare City of Bones: Harry Bosch Series, Book 8 to and why?

    Really there are none.. in this one I hate that they didn't really get to catch the guy. They had him and it sad that even if they catch him again he couldn't get prosecuted because he was a minor.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Jay Fernandez’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Umm not sure but he is good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the first suspect committed suicide.


    Any additional comments?

    None

    "Good Bosch"

    I think this is one of the better story lines in the Bosch series. It has plenty of twists without getting convoluted.
    Mr. Fernandez does an excellent job with the narration, even with the female voices. However, I found the background music and other sound effects distracting. When you have a good story and a good narrator, you don't need the added hoopla.

    "City Of Bones Review"

    From start to finish, City Of Bones captures your attention and doesn't let go. Connelly is the consummate weaver of mystery and suspense, but never deviates from the plausible and possible. I could not recommend it more.

    "Bad production"

    Good story but terrible production. What was going on with the background music at random places in the book. It was completely out of of place and took away from the story.

    "Production overkill"

    Great story and narration. The problem was the music that came in over the narration at the ends of chapters. It was jarring, unnecessary, and rarely matched the current mood of the story.

    "Great!!"

    Michael Connelly has another masterpiece here. Mr. Fernandez as usual gives the perfect rendition of the characters, bringing them to life.

    Story
    "Peter Jay Fernandez is a good narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to City of Bones: Harry Bosch Series, Book 8 the most enjoyable?

    The great relief I felt that it's a guy with a good voice who knows how to narrate this kind of book--unlike Peter Giles in Angel's Flight, the previous Bosch novel--whom I gave the worst pan I have ever given in a review on Amazon and returned my download from Audible after listening to a few paragraphs--he was that bad. I had never heard Fernandez before, but I would certainly read other books from him. He's no Dick Hill, but I actually like his voice a lot and would definitely be happy to listen to him again.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Jay Fernandez’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not heard him before.


    Any additional comments?

    This novel is the first setting for the Bosch TV series.

    "What can I say , it Harry"

    Harry is like a dog with a bone in this book. He will not leave it alone until he has it figured out. The new Show Bosch season one is based on this book and echo park.
