Publisher's Summary

In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the 22-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the district attorney. A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto. Taking the confession of the man he has sought and hated for 13 years is bad enough. Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

    "Worth it"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Having grew up in L.A., and working in the areas this book takes place, this book was absolutely dead on. Bosch was a bit bravado, but that's Harry. His story had me guessing who, and how. If you are a Connelly fan, or not, you'll love this book if police mysteries are your taste.

    "Wonderful"

    One of my favorite Harry Bosch novels to date. I found this to be so entertaining, I was sorry when I was finished with it. I'm eager for the next Michael Connelly book!

    "One of his BEST"

    Harry Bosch is one of my favorites. I throughly enjoyed this book. Guess I could never be dissappointed in one of Michael's books. I must "listen" in my opinion.

    "Very Entertaining"

    Echo Park was a very entertaining book. I've read all of Michael Connelly's books and they've all been engaging and fun. I would certainly recommend this book.

    "Great book, don't be put off"

    I’m very surprised by the negative reviews listed for this book. I thought it was one of the best audio books I have ever listened to. It has a fantastic twisting plot, classic characters and a great narrator in Len Cariou who has a wonderful deep voice that perfectly suits Harry Bosch. I’m glad I didn’t read these reviews before I downloaded it as it would have put me off a great book.

    "Disappointing"

    I usually enjoy Michael Connelly but found this recent book to be a chore to listen to.
    I listen to audiobooks on my iPod while I walk nightly. I think the problem with this particular book is the actor/reader. He sounds as if he's spitting on the microphone. All the "s" and "f" starting words sound , well, like he's losing saliva while reading aloud.
    The key to a good audio book is that the reader keeps your interest. I found myself wondering off in unrelated thought many times throughout this book and finally just wanting for it to be over quickly.

    "Vintage Bosch"

    This had to be one of the best books (if not the best) of the series. Great twists and turns and continued development of the main characters along lines consistent with the earlier works. Bravo!

    Enjoy intellectually stimulating mysteries. Dislike story lines use a lot of violence, gun play and highly improbable events.

    "Storyline becomes too improbable"

    I've enjoyed the previous Harry Bosch books, and I was enjoying this one until about halfway through when the storyline took several turns that were so improbable and hard to believe that it spoiled it all. I found myself wondering how the author could expect us to be this willing to 'suspend critical judgment' and continue to stay involved in the story.

    "Excellent"

    I have listened to many Harry Bosch stories and this one had many intricate twists and turns. Harry's a good smart cop who always gets his man - one way or another. It will be interesting to see whether he ever gets the girls again. Well written and well read.
