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.

    "well done"

    I have read all of the Bosch books and find this one among the best. Well written and gripping, keeps you puzzling with the detective over the next step. Great read.

    "Vintage Bosch"

    Yet another great Harry Bosch novel. I loved it--it was well worth the wait for it to be released!

    "horrible"

    I am almost 2 hours into this book and it is sooo slow and boring. I usually like Michael Connelly, but this one goes nowhere for the first 2 hours, there is no action, just a lot of slow talking. I will continue to listen, I hope that it picks up, but I am tempted to give up. In all fairness, I am only 2 hours into a 10 hour book, so it may pick up, but if you like your books to get right into the action, it does not happen here.

    "Is this all it takes?"

    I don’t enjoy writing bad reviews but I felt compelled to give back some of the time lost on this novel to anyone that might be prevented from reading this. When I was listening to this book, the running commentary in my mind was, “Is this all it takes to get a book out there?” I mean, the characters were two dimensional and unimaginative caricatures of themselves, the plot was mind blowingly simple, most of the twists were just dumb and unbelievable, the dialogue stiff and comic book like, and the whole thing felt ‘cookie cutter.’ The reader was just terrible, monotone and lumpy in his cadence, like he was driving from period to period in stop and go traffic.

    In one way it was kind of encouraging, that if you can get one or two decent books out on the market, you can coast on your laurels for awhile and make a pretty good living by writing a lame series. People seem to like it, so who am I to say it’s lame. Sorry Michael, but enough is enough already.

    "Great Listen... Good Story!"

    I liked the story line. Harry Bosch seems to have repeating issues with authority and the woman that come into his life. Can't wait to download the next one in this series... the Brass Verdict. Enjoy!

    "Echo Park"

    This was my first audio book that I've had the pleasure of listening to. Michael Connelly and Len Cariou are a great match, the story was compelling, kept me in anticipation to turn it on again. I highly recommend this book.

    "Just a Down Right Good Story!"

    This was another great detective tale! The Los Angeles setting, the familiarity of Harry Bosch (this is book 12) and the way Connelly spins a tale have me hooked. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. . .and all the complexities confounding Harry's search for truth. Len Cariou performance, as always, was wonderful.

    "ECHO PARK"

    I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK.
    LEN CARIOU NARRATION IS TERRIFIC AND THE STORY HAS SO MANY TWISTS AND TURNS BUT NEVER ANNOYS THE LISTENER.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED .
    MICHAEL CONNELLY IS ONE OF THE BEST FICTION WRITERS
    AROUND TODAY.
    I HAVE READ ABOUT HALFE OF HIS NOVELS AND ENJOYED ALL OF THEM.
