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)
The last Coyote is Bosh at his most magnificent angst ridden, persecuted self with collateral damage all around. Dick Hill was born to read Connelly's Bosh books too. Great read here by Hill.

The experiences that Harry goes through could happen to any of us. Harry's reactions and actions are most interesting, exciting, and make for a great read.

This book is not my favorite Bosch book, but it does provide more information of the character. For when the book was written it addresses issues that are really only coming to light today. For that alone it is worth a read.
The plot was reasonably predictable, but a few twists spiced it up at the end.
If you are a fan of Harry Bosch this book is worth it to round the character out. If this is your first Bosch book, its probably better to start with a different book.
The plot was a little over the top, but it was still a really enjoyable "read." The love interest was kind of pointless, but maybe she will be a character in a future book. The Bosch series it's worth listening to, but don't let the TV series impair your imagination. You can listen to this book by itself, but you'll get more out of it if you listen to the series in order.
Nice background on Bosch. Narrator does great as always. I'd recommend it for sure if you are planning to continue the series.
This is my favorite Harry Bosch novel out of the 8 I have read. This one gets into Harry's head a bit more, as he tracks down a cold, but extremely important, case. More twists and turns than most novels I have read, but it all fits together nicely. It kept me intrigued to the end. Harry isn't quite as funny as John Corey (Nelson DeMille), but his cases are a little more complex, and perhaps more compelling.
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.
