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.

    "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.

    "The personal side of Harry Bosch"
    What did you love best about The Last Coyote: Harry Bosch Series, Book 4?

    I'm new to the Harry Bosch Series, but I loved this one because we get to see "inside" Harry Bosch, learn about what makes him tick, and see why he's a little damaged from his past. All this makes Harry a well thought out character who doesn't disappoints in his humanness and intelligence as a detective and person. Great listen. Dick Hill is excellent as a narrator, I seek him out as a reader.

    "Great story, great performance"
    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dick Hill does a great job in narration, it's almost like listening to a radio play. Real voice acting sounds like it was ripped from a movie, rather than just read. That goes for the first 4 books in the Harry Bosch series that I've listened to so far.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Harry Bosch comes across as the tough, sarcastic heavy smoking detective that was popular years ago. His quips come across with delightful accuracy in Dick Hill's narration. I laughed often.

    I'm old and sarcastic myself, so maybe that's why I like it :)

    "May be the best I've ever listened to"

    I won't spoil it for you, but I will say that Connelly pulls all the strings together behind the mysterious life of Bosch (at least as we know it so far). This is masterful writing. The plot and characters are so interwoven, and the suspense is incredible. Hats off, too, for Dick Hill's reading. Very well done.

    Story
    "Hard not to like a Harry Bosch novel"

    This was a great way to explore one of the most formative and defining events in Harry's life. It also explains why the current spate of "cold case" television and movie stories are so strong - the cases are fascinating - but it's personal with Harry. He investigates the murder of his mother, which doomed him to a childhood of children's homes and unsuccessful foster homes. Well written, intelligent, good detection. Only problem I had was the ending, which I thought was lame. However, Connelly is always a 5 star writer, and I would hate to have someone miss him - so a 4 star Connelly is going to get 5 stars from me unless it's really bad - and this is definitely good.

    One of the best portrayals of a therapists is in this book. Usually they are portrayed as either far too directive, too sexy, or just plain bad. Harry's department mandated therapist is excellent and Harry responds to her, which is one of the good parts of this book. It shows Harry moving ahead in his life - rather than ossifying into a paper cut out character. Connelly has written a long series of books with this character, and he has done it better than most authors because Harry is a smart and thoughtful guy, and smart and thoughtful guys can take what comes at them and change over the course of their lives. He keeps the qualities that make him Harry, and make him a killer detective at the same time. By giving Harry a life that is not static, and a personality that never freezes in time, he keeps himself and his readers from being bored. I'll keep reading about Bosch, so long as Connelly is willing to write about Bosch.
