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.

    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.

    "Another great Harry Bosch book"

    This is a great series that never gets old! There are always twists and turns that keep you wondering "who done it". The character of Harry Bosch is complex and even though rather rough endearing.

    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?

    "Don't start reading Bosch books with this one"
    Any additional comments?

    The good news is this book tells what happened to Harry Bosch to make him the man he is today. It has him trying to solve his mother's murder, which happened when he was a boy. The bad news is this is probably the slowest of Connelly’s books. That’s all right if you like Bosch’s character, as I do. But it’s not the place to start if you're somewhat new to the series.

    "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.

    "Poor Audi Quality"

    Only reason this is not a full 5 star review is that the audio quality was sub-par. Great story, including Bosch's back story. Good twists and turns.

    "The Last Coyote"

    It took time to listen to but it was worth it. Michael Connelly and his Harry Bosch series are an amazing read. Each book in the series is better than the one before.
    Highly recommended.

    "Recored from a cassette tape?"
    What did you like most about The Last Coyote: Harry Bosch Series, Book 4?

    Another great story, spoilt by the quality of the recording? It sounded like it has been re-recorded from an old cassette tape where every 's' hissed! Once you accept the quality isn't going to get any better, you begin to accept the poor quality and focus on the story, but very strange that these days for such technological advances, something couldn't be done to repiar the sound quality. Not Connelly, Hill or Harry's fault though....!


    What other book might you compare The Last Coyote: Harry Bosch Series, Book 4 to, and why?

    Harry Bosch books are all of a pattern but extremely entertaining


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    Dick Hill is a good narrator in the same mould as Jeff Harding
