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.

"A powerful book." (Houston Chronicle)
This is the best of the four Bosch books I have read. I have liked them all. It would appear that catching up to the Bosch series so far, will require an inordinate amount of time, but it has to be done. I am probably twenty books behind if you count the Mickey Haller series.
The struggle to come to grips with Harry's past was more the story than the mystery around his mom's death. It portrayed him as a weaker more vulnerable character. interesting twist.
Dick Hill does standard narrative quite well. When he does a female voice, the performance devolves into pure annoyance.
Good story line. I liked the plot. Charters were good. Enjoyed the audiobook. Will read the next one.
i love Bosch novels, Mr Connelly writes a great charactrt with the same conflicts and inperfections we all have. in this book,
the audible book reader does angood jobbif NOT over acting HOWEVER I hate when male actors portray females by WHISPERING - It is NOT sexy and makes it hard to hear the book!!
i would have given 1 star but he did a good job on Bosch's voice
The way the whole book was put together with Harry finally solving his mother's murder.. nobody gets left behind.. I really enjoyed it.
My favorite was the retired cop in the boat. He just stuck with me cause even after he retired he still had it.. he had a plan he figured it out he was on his toes.. Bosh was not going to catch him slipping.
I'm not sure but all the performances are great on these series..
The moment when Harry was talking to the guy who love his mother that got murdered and his mother's best friend who killed his mother and herself.. those parts touched my heart..
Terrific story and performance. This story gives insight into Harry's mother's unsolved murder of 30 years. He faces many old memories and deals with his guilt. I can't wait to listen to the next Harry Bosch. They keep getting better and better.
