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).

Wish it was longer. I have reached the end of the series. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
I'm not sure what a reader is supposed to get out of this. There wasn't really a mystery here, there was no character development, no insights into Bosch's life, past, relationships, approach to detective work, nothing.
I love Michael Connelly and have enjoyed (almost) all of his full-length novels, but this was a baffling disappointment and an empty reading experience - I thought I'd relish even a little dose of Bosch while I eagerly anticipate "The Burning Room," but I'd have been better off just waiting for the novel.
Changed my thoughts on this book since I've realized it's part one of a trilogy; story = 4 stars.Wish Audible made this clear on their site.
Harry Bosch and Harry Bosch.
The story was flat and the characters dull.
It inspired me to wait for a complete book.
Yes, because I am a Michael Connelly fan. I've read all his full length novels.
This is essentially a short story. It lacks the depth and complexity one expects from a Harry Bosch tale. It's clearly marked as short by both the listening time and the price, but I guess I just expected a little more. I just never got engaged.
No. There's barely enough story here for 50 minutes of listening, much less a series. A Harry Bosch series, on the other hand . . .
This was a nice short story and I really enjoyed it. Good plot and characters. If you are looking for a short murder mystery, you can't go wrong.
Tell us about yourself!
The publisher's summary tells more than I would; I don't like spoilers.
This is Connelly and narrator Len Cariou at their best. I recommend this piece of Bosch's past.
Great story. I was totally into the plot. Love Harry Bosch.
I was very disappointed when it ended after 50 minutes (I know...it's posted).
That story is far from over. What's the plan? We releasing this in stages?
It's like Michael went on vacation and submitted it as is...
Great Bosch story, as usual. Too short but great for a little taste of Harry until the next full length novel comes out Len Cariou great as always.
I buy every book Connelly offers here.So I jumped on this right away.Only when I started listening did I find out it ended after 2 chapters.A short story!
And it still seemed like the story was just beginning.But then I never buy short stories.
It taught me to watch for the length of whatever I'm buying.Why would I use 1 credit to buy a 50 minute short story
