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.

What the Critics Say

  • Winner of Audio Publishers Association 2007 Audie Award, Mystery

    "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.

    "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.

    "Excellent"

    Michael Connelly is a terrific writer. His books are always readable, meticulously plotted, with well drawn and believable characters - particularly the main man, Harry Bosch - and real page turners. Echo Park is right up with the best of his work in all these respects. The narration is excellent too adding greatly to the pleasure of the book. Strongly recommended.

    "Well written with a good story, but super cheesy"

    I have never read any other Micheal Connelly Books but i like a good detective story. This one starts off well and becomes addictive quickly, the story is well written, flows smoothly and has a good twist in the end. The only point that really lets it down is the large amount of cliches you would find in a Gene Hackman film.

    Bosch is an ex 'nam' solider whose mother was murdered thus he becomes a detective (and solves his own mothers case!), there are lots of cringe-worthy 'she's my partner god-dammit' scenes and 'the badge is what i live for' moments. If you can put up with this then it is a good book though these parts literally made me laugh out loud. One other thing is that the reader adopts a really odd voice for Bosch's friend Rachel, this was testing my patience towards the end. None of this made me stop listening however, so it really isn't so bad. I'd recommend it.

    "Echo Park"

    Michael Connelly's best to date - he just gets better with every book. Full of twists & suspense from the first 'page' until the 'last'. I listened to it in one go - couldn't 'put it down'. Brilliant. And the reading is unbelievable.

    "Excellent thriller"

    This is an excellent thriller, well written and well read. The plot had enough twists to keep my interest to the end. I have listened to several Michael Connelly novels and I have enjoyed them all. They have pace, believable characters and good plots. If you like thrillers that have good plots and well drawn characters then you should enjoy this.
