In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the 22-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the district attorney. A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto.

It was a fun book to listen to. Being a retired female police officer/detective in my state's most violent city, I was pleased that Bosch was not portrayed as perfect, and that his impulsiveness is more real than an "always by the book" cop. The FBI agent was as stiff and rigid as I remember them being. That "always right" attitude was accurate. Although very bright, they never seemed to be able to think for themselves, doing only what they were told to do brought back good memories.
