Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9 | [Michael Connelly]

Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9

Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

Publisher's Summary

Only the money was real. Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. Bosch got off a shot that struck one of the robbers as their van sped away, but the money was never recovered. And the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

Now Bosch moves full-bore back into that case, determined to find justice for the young woman. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear in the guilty, he learns afresh how brutally indifferent the world can be. But something draws him on, past humiliation and harassment. It's not just that the dead woman had no discernible link to the robbery. Nor is it his sympathy for the cops who took the case over, one of them killed on duty and the other paralyzed by a bullet in the same attack. With every conversation and every thread of evidence, Bosch senses a larger presence, an organization bigger than the movie studios and more ruthless than even the LAPD. The part of Bosch that will never back down finds as fatal an opponent as he's ever encountered - and there's no guarantee that Bosch will survive the showdown ahead.

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

What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Winner, Mystery, Fiction, 2004

"It's never pretty watching Harry [Bosch] edge toward connection with those he loves and then back away...but it just may be the most compelling train wreck in crime fiction." (Booklist, Starred Review)
"This exciting procedural is as good as any in the series." (Publishers Weekly)

    I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.

    Story
    "Loved the Story but HATED ....."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes... the voice of the partner who was bed ridden. It is is AWFUL. I hated listing to it. One could do a better job of getting a voice that is going through a hard time.... I could not focus at all. The rest is great. well written and presented.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Moving strong and intellectually fun.


    Which character – as performed by Len Cariou – was your favorite?

    Harry of course.


    Do you think Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Cant comment on this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Please use good voices. for all characters. a half raspy voice is NOT attractive.... SORRY ! BAD CHOICE.....

    "Not thrilling at all."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was not thrilling or exciting. Quite boring.


    What could Michael Connelly have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Plot more dangerous and exciting


    How could the performance have been better?

    Needed better differences in voice character... some were just silly.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9?

    Idk... the whole thing was not good.

    "Another Solid Harry Bosch Who-Dun-It"

    This series could go on as long as James Bond movies....one solid story after another. Patterson's eye for detail, along with the continued development of real-life, flawed characters, together with an interesting mix of story twists all leads to a I-don't-want-this-book-to-end experience.

    "Good noirish mystery, but..."

    ... there is some very annoying acting when it comes to the actor reading the disabled cop's dialogue. I found those parts extremely grating.

    "Slow Build Up, Good Wrap Up."

    Am going 50/50 on the MC novels. Really like Lincoln Lawyer and some of the later "non-Harry B" books. Tried to get into series by starting at begining, but the 1st two seemed dated... All about Vietnam and too predicable by 1/2. But I liked them enough to give the series another shot. Jumped up to Lost Light as it had decent reviews. Story was good if a long time coming. Was really hating Harry not being a cop as was he. Narrator was great. Am already bored by HB's not being able to work a computer. Old, tired play and it's turning up in next book too. Drop it, my Grandmother can go online and check the weather now-a-days. If you like the series, you don't need my input, it you're on the edge, it's OK and if you're new to MC, start w/ the Lincoln Lawyer and Chasing the Dime.

    "Au Audie for This?"

    The glowing reviews and Audie award greatly influenced my decision to buy this book. I found the reading forced, stilted, and choppy. Len Cariou cut up. Sentences. Adding phrases like. Extra appendages. This is annoying in any work, but especially a first person account. And the music! It would be okay if it did something to enhance the mood or story line, but this was just stuck in anywhere like a gratuitous sex scene in a movie. Even so, I tried to get past all this and get interested in the story. Mostly it was just dull and not at all engaging. Connelly/Bosch didn?t share enough clues to for the audience to try to figure whodunit. Bosch stumbled on the revealing clue and then we all knew whodunit. I?m glad I stuck it out to the end, though, because there were two genuine surprises. If only the rest of the book were as good as the last hour.
