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.

"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)
It started off a little slow but picked up towards the end. The reader did a lot better job with "The Narrows", which was also a better book than this.
This was my first Harry Bosch book and now I have to find all of the others. I think the narrator does great justice to the characters.
This is the first book by this author that I've read. An intriguing detective story and the perfect reader for this style of book. Highly recommended.
I alway know when I enjoy listening to an audio book as I generally listen again within a few days. This has not been the case with this novel.
"Lost Light" left me somewhat lost as to where the novel was trying to be, most certainly written in a style that recaptures some of the 50's greats in American crime writing. However taking this theme and trying to pull it into the 21st Century just did not work for me.
I also found the story line slow and contrived, there-again I've probably been reading to much "Ed McBane"
Finally, I found the narration artifical and somewhat forced in places.
