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.

    Story
    "Great mystery; great performance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The Last Coyote is a brilliant mystery with many twists and turns, but as weird as it was, I never found myself saying "Oh, come on." Connelly makes you want to believe the story and keeps you rooting for his hero, Harry Bosch, even as the whole world around Bosch is ready to turn its back. The reader has an incredible range of voices that also do not sound forced or exaggerated. It kept me on my iPod for hours after I was done with my day's driving.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bosch is the center of the story, of course. But the supporting cast is full of interesting "cameos."


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dick Hill has an extraordinarily versatile voice. I have listened to his other Connelly interpretations and think he hands in consistently strong performances. I have to admit, it was listening to the Bosch stories, rather then reading them, that made me realize what a good ear for dialogue the author has. Credit goes to Mr. Hill for this.


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

    One troubled loner after another.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are not sure whether to get into the 18 or 19 Harry Bosch books, this is a good one to start with. Listen to Last Coyote and Trunk Music, then start at the first book, Black Echo.

    "My favorite of the Harry Bosch novels."
    What did you love best about The Last Coyote?

    I believe I have read all of the Harry Bosch novels to the point where Harry Bosch feels like an old friend. Me and Harry Bosch are together nightly while I do my exercises and during long drives. This is my favorite one because it allowed me to know Harry in a deeper psychological way. The plot is excellent as well. I love the comparison to "the last coyote" with Harry being one of the last of his breed of detective. It tied up lose ends and was a very satisfying read--and the one of the series I remember the most.

    What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly’s story?

    The normal Harry Bosch wasn't there, except for a few scenes. The psychiatrist got better towards the end; however, I just wanted to turn it off. My goodness...she was annoying. The sub-story about the


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Hill?

    Someone who could make the reporter's voice easily recognizable as a male or female. I had no idea if Kim was a last name or first name; however, the voice sounded like a man. So, without going back over the dialogue - I will assume it was a male with the last name of Kim.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Considering the accuracy of the Doctor's Psychoanalytic read and advice to Bosch, I learned a lot about forgetting the past - as reliving the past just continue tearing opening unhealed scabs. Move forward; forward towards hope.


    Any additional comments?

    I live the Bosch series and usually enjoy Connelly's work! Unfortunately, this

    "Good listen"

    This was a typical Michael Connelly. I enjoy listening to his books as I have yet to listen to one that I do not like. I would saw that this was one that is an absolute must but it was enjoyable to say the least.

    "Good Book"

    This book has a good story line once you finally get into the plot. I felt that it took way too long to get to the meat of the story. For instance, the book comes in two parts. However, I did not start to get involved in the book until part 2. That is way too much time to take before you can really feel like the book is something you will enjoy.

    The only reason why I would recommend reading this book is because the second half really gets in to the plot and has a lot of interesting turns of events. The ending was excellent - I am glad I continued listening to the book to the end because it is well worth the time invested. I did not give this book five stars because I felt it took too long for me to be pulled in to the story line.

    "Soul searching mystery"

    The plot was well thought out and Dick Hill did a great job of narrating. It's a novel that has a lot of introspection on the part of the main character. I honestly enjoyed the book but felt a bit let down at the end. Perhaps because I wanted there to be more, perhaps because it seems as though the the answers no longer were as important, I'm not sure. This is why I only gave it 4 stars.

    "Good enough"

    Not a masterpiece, just a simple book. Good enough for my long commute driving. I like Michael Connelly, I think I am going to buy more of his books.
