Publisher's Summary

Harry Bosch is facing the end of the line. He's been put on the DROP - Deferred Retirement Option Plan - and given three years before his retirement is enforced. Seeing the end of the mission coming, he's anxious for cases. He doesn't have to wait long.

First a cold case gets a DNA hit for a rape and murder which points the finger at a 29-year-old convicted rapist who was only eight at the time of the murder. Then a city councilman's son is found dead - fallen or pushed from a hotel window - and he insists on Bosch taking the case despite the two men's history of enmity. The cases are unrelated, but they twist around each other like the double helix of a DNA strand. One leads to the discovery of a killer operating in the city for as many as three decades; the other to a deep political conspiracy that reached back into the dark history of the police department.

    Story
    "Living up to its own hype"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Drop to be better than the print version?

    Listening to The Drop was like listening to a well orchestrated BBC series story sans the audio effects. The narrator Len Cariou (whose work I officially love) kept me enthralled and had me coming back for more and hoping that the book would not come to an end.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Drop?

    The change in pace and story from what I assumed was going to be a classic whodunnit turned out unepectadly to be something else (seriously didn't see that one coming) and the interactions between the characters made me forget that I was just listening to one person narrate the book,with Harry Bosch doing what he does best...being Harry Bosch.As always Michael Connelly tells a great story.


    What about Len Cariou’s performance did you like?

    What a great performance!The way his voice inter-changed between the various characters,infused with different emotions from each character makes the listener experience the emotions the characters feel.The change in cadance of the book could be felt in his characters' voice.I must admit to expecting more plot twists as in previous Bosch books but was not disappointed with the final outcome.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The relentless Harry Bosch returns

    "Terrible Narration!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The storyline wasnt too bad.


    What didn’t you like about Len Cariou’s performance?

    I havent listened to a book by him before but he speaks with a sort of lisp which can be very distracting. I wont listen to another one by him again.

    "Another great tale"

    Another great tale from mr Connelly. Love all his books but Harry has always been one of my favourite characters in fiction. The one thing I like is that Harry always remains Harry! His character is consistent across all books and is always believable as he has never morphed into whatever fits at a given period of time.he is given great cases and this is no exception with plenty of "high jingo". Always Fun to read or listen to and I have to say I like Len cariou narrating. Well read and not overdone!
