Publisher's Summary

Harry attacked his commanding officer and is suspended indefinitely, pending a psychiatric evaluation. At first he resists the LAPD shrink, but finally recognizes that something is troubling him and has for a long time. In 1961, when Harry was 12, his mother, a prostitute, was brutally murdered with no one ever accused of the crime.

With the spare time a suspension brings, Harry opens up the 30-year-old file on the case and is irresistibly drawn into a past he has always avoided. It's clear that the case was fumbled and the smell of a cover-up is unmistakable. Someone powerful was able to divert justice and Harry vows to uncover the truth. As he relentlessly follows the broken pieces of the case, the stirred interest causes new murders and pushes Harry to the edge of his job...and his life.

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

    "Captivating"

    I have read some of the series out of order but that doesn't really matter because the writing is all good. However, this book helped me to understand Harry's character better. As soon as I was finished with this book I had to download the next book in the series "Trunk Music" to find out what happens next with Harry.

    Story
    "Stand Out - Bosch's Past Revealed"
    What did you love best about The Last Coyote: Harry Bosch Series, Book 4?

    That Bosch found out the details of why his mother was murdered.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bosch of course, but also liked his therapist's character as well as the character who admitted to Bosch that he had loved his mother and wanted to marry her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the entire book and there were plenty of vivid scenes: when Bosch left the note on the politician's flyer and the bodyguard chasing Bosch down the sloped driveway.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    "My introduction to Harry Bosch was...okay"

    I always read the reviews before I use my precious credit. There were so many raves about this Harry Bosch character that I threw my lot in and purchased the book. I think for a newcomer to this series, probably reading from introduction or 1st book would be best. It took me two months to complete, not because I am illiterate, but because you have to sort out who's who, etc., to the point that I lost interest, came back, lost interest. From the middle to the conclusion, it was not such a bad listen, but not creditworthy.

    "Touchy feely"

    This is not a good Bosch story. I have liked other Harry Bosch stories but I did not enjoy this one. He usually cuts through red tape and brushes aside the establishment but in this book he seemed spoiled and petulant. If you want a detective story that really deals with the higher ups and red tape in a very funny way, get A Killing Frost, by R.D. Wingfield. You will not regret it.

    "Mmmmm....ok I guess"

    I have listened to almost all of the Bosch series and this is by a long shot my least favorite. I don't know why it didn't suck me in like harry usually does. It was something about the characters in the story, they just were not interesting to me like most of Connellys characters usually are. Although, dick hill was amazing as always. If you like hills works you may want give it a try.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Outstanding"

    With this story, the listener/reader really has the opportunity to get inside Bosch's head.

    Connelly does a great job of spinning the personal side of the murder of Bosch's mother with a really good detective story.

    Dick Hill is good as narrator.

    Definitely recommended.

    "A Hard Listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The reader has a trick of appearing to run out of breath and gagging on his words in the middle of a sentence, apparently as a means of conveying emotion. He seems quite proud of this technique, because he uses it over and over again, pointlessly and without any regard to the dramatic context. Generally, the reading was grossly overacted to the point of distracting from the flow of the story.

    "Harry's On Stress Leave"

    Seems that Bosch's attitude has finally done him in but that turns out not to be the case. He decides while on leave he will investigate a 30+ year old murder, his mother. The case takes him to Florida and back to LA but he uncovers lots of mysteries along the way. His world has more conspiracy theories than anyone should have to deal with but he perseveres and with some not exactly straight forward moves he solves the case. It doesn't end where it begins but he does get cleared of wrong doing. Again, Dick Hill is a superb narrator.
