Publisher's Summary

For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal.

The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell. Now, Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city to the torturous link that must be uncovered, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit.

Joining with an enigmatic and seductive female FBI agent, pitted against enemies inside his own department, Bosch must make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, as he tracks down a killer whose true face will shock him.

Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

    "Great narration"

    I really enjoyed the narrator of this book, his voice quality, speech rate and intensity kept me involved with this great story.

    I liked this one quite a bit. I went to the library and got some more from this author to read when I'm not commuting.

    "I did not finish this book"

    I gort this book based on the hight reader ratings, but it is just not to my taste. I got about half way throught the first half and lost interest. The writing was OK and the reader was not objectionable, but I did not care about the charecters at all and it did not hold my interest.

    "Good but need better fact finding"

    As a retired police Sgt. 33yrs in Ca and a Vietnam vet servering with the Big Red One, 1st of the 28th "Black Lions" in 1968 found some of the facks wrong but liked the book. Examplae of mistakes of Nam I believe it refers to the main det. as going to being drafted w a low lottery number! There was a draft then but the Lottery did not start till Dec. 1969 if I' not mistaken!
