But the LAPD's organized crime unit is curiously uninterested, and when Harry follows a trail of gambling debts to Las Vegas, the case suddenly becomes more complex - and much more personal. A rekindled romance with an old girlfriend opens new perspectives on the murder, and he begins to glimpse a shocking triangle of corruption and collusion. Yanked off the case, Harry himself is soon the one being investigated. But only a bullet can stop Harry when he's searching for the truth.
Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

Yes. A better editor perhaps. There were glaring weak points I would've like it better without.
Of course. I like his work generally.
Harry is a little bit forced. If you like your cops jaded and willing to rough up suspects without remorse to get results, Harry is your man. It bothered me that when he is suspected of planting evidence everyone was so surprised, though. I think now my difficulty finishing this one is the rampant corruption everywhere. I think I fear reality is really like this and it breaks my heart.
While I really enjoy the cases, I love the way each book delves into the life of Harry more. He feels like a real person - so many details, and realistic behaviors... Ver well planned and written.
Yes, if you are a fan of Harry Bosch, you would love this book. It is full of his character and style of investigation.
I am always a fan of Michael Connelly, especially of detective Bosch series. I have not yet found one that I didn't like. Great story and the characters.
Love it and his voice fits with all the characters that he developed in this book.
I loved Harry...such a tortured soul.
I love listening to Dick Hill. His voice is so soothing and easy on the ear.
This is my favorite Bosch except for Echo Park. Good story, great characters. Dick Hill, the narrator, personifies Bosch for me. I think he is an amazing actor and he really *makes* the book. I wish he narrated all of the books in the series....
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Hmmmm…. Connelly has braided a lace-like plot… No… no… that’s too delicate, even though it captures the complexity… Connelly has woven a net-like plot… Yeah, that’s manly enough but misses the continual twists and whorls. Okay… suppose you had cigar stained lace… used for a whiskey coaster… You know strong stuff, maybe bourbon.
Anyway… The story twists but the ends all align and the characters each fit into the design – net-captured, y’know what I’m sayin’? And Dick Hill creates the ensemble so that they swagger around in … in… Ahah! Knit the lace out of tough netting, riddle it with a stray bullet, and color the thing dark bloody noir. And if that’s what you want from a hard-boiled Harry Bosch novel… Get this one. It’ll tie up your imagination :-)
One of the guidelines for writing a review is NO "Harsh, profane or discriminatory language." But this book is full of that language. I'm not a prude but this book doesn't come close to being as interesting as "City of Bones". In my estimation it makes Susie Bright appear to be a Sunday School teacher by comparison. Maybe that's why the lower price at introduction?
the story telling was good. Dick Hill is a classic reader. Not a bad story, just didn't like it as well as others.
A great combination Bosch and Hill. I love the series and am up to book 9. Very hard to put my phone down and makes the drive to and from work easier.
