LAPD Detective Harry Bosch seeks justice for the forgotten in this original story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly
An anonymous tip puts Bosch on a case that has remained unsolved for decades, the vicious stabbing of a teenage boy whose body was found in an abandoned Old Hollywood restaurant.
Cold cases are often the toughest: With no body, no murder scene, and no fingerprints, Bosch nevertheless gets lucky when DNA evidence from the murder weapon points to a known killer. But the DA insists that science alone is not enough - he needs the case to be bulletproof before he'll take it to court.
Determined to speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves, Bosch has one chance to wrench a confession out of a cold-blooded killer, or risk letting him walk free for good.
In this gripping, never-before-published story by "master of the crime thriller" (Huffington Post ) Michael Connelly, Detective Harry Bosch quenches his thirst for justice and shows why he is "one of the most popular and enduring figures in American crime fiction" (Chicago Tribune).

this story was short. only 2 chapters but I still liked it. I never saw it coming that the ex wife was assisting the unsolved unit in keeping her ex-husband locked up..
this book was way too short for a full audible credit. I was done with the book and no more than 30 minutes. I don't think that that is right and I think I should get my credit back. This was one short story there should at least be in for more in order to earn my credit. I am not satisfied
Story seems embryonic, undeveloped/underdeveloped. Even if author was aiming for O. Henry-inspired ending, that was ineffective for me.
Narrator (L. Carriou) adequate, but not among my favourites of the Bosch-series narrators. Even in this brief piece, narrator Carriou manages once again through his voiceovers to stereotype characters in stilted, outdated, often demeaning ways. (I did not notice this tendency in the other narrators, or when I previously read the hardcover book versions on my own. I find it quite annoying).
This was a good short story. I read one of the books in the series and wasn't blown away by it, but I may try and give the series another shot based on this. The ending had a twist I didn't see coming and I liked how it came together; plus, I always enjoy the cold case books and the forensic details that are essential to the plot. The narration was good as well.
I like the Bosch series, but this narrator was horrible and boring. I gave up trying to listen to it after just 30 minutes!
A perfect short story-. plus + in and out in less than 1 hr. Detail-rich, some tension and surprise, yet faithful to the Bosch character.
Cariou is Harry Bosh. He was, as usual, excellent.
I am a huge Connelly fan. I've read all of his books to-date and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. When I discovered this and a couple of other short-stories, I was eager to get my next dose. After listening to it, I feel let down. The story builds in typical Harry Bosch fashion and then it ends. The impression I was left with was this was either a concept for a future book that the author found and released or that he was past a deadline and had to get it submitted, so he ended it where he was.
Still a Connelly fan, but disappointed.
