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.

    "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.

    "Great!"

    Another enjoyable, suspenseful book from a master of the genre. The plot twists were good and kept me guessing right up to the end. The only dissapointment is that now I have finished it and I have to wait months for his next book.

    "Fast Paced & Gripping"

    I really love the Harry Bosch series and was enthralled by this one...a really great mystery that I just couldn't "put down" -- it seemed like half the time. The development of the character along with the hunt for the villians and the backdrop of LAPD and LA politics make for a fine story. The narrator is particularly skilled with both the male and female voices...a pleasurable "listen." I find myself anxious for the next book in this series. Buy it, sit back and enjoy!

    "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.
