Publisher's Summary

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. Taking the confession of the man he has sought and hated for 13 years is bad enough. Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

    Story
    "Bosch Visits His Own Open & Unsolved Case."

    In this book Bosch is revisiting a case from his past in which it appears he missed an important clue. For the almost neurotic Bosch, who never lets go of a case until he has overturned every rock, the fact that he may have missed something so important has him questioning everything. This situation leads Bosch deep inside himself and evokes the aspects of his personality that I like best -- the aspects of his personality that make him odd, unique, stubborn and dogged. Yes, Connelly writes these books with little emotion -- they are told in a very factual way - and I find this to be the perfect tone for books about this particular man. Bosch is odd -- in a way that I like very much. He is a loner and often finds it impossible to work with others. Sometimes he is even disrespectful to his partners and others he encounters while on the investigation. The factual and undramatic way of storytelling seems exactly right.

    Cariou continues to hit the right notes for these books. He allows Bosch to be Bosch -- he allows the character to be that person I just outlined.

    "Quite a Surprise...Exept For..."

    If it had not been for the over-ennunciating narrator, I would have given this book a 5-Star Rating. Having read Michael Connelly's so-so "Lincoln Lawyer", I was very pleasantly surprisedby the seat-of-your pants storyline of "Echo Park." If you are looking for a mystery-thriller that it diffiult to put down, try this book...despite the annoying narrator.

    "I have become a Cop groupie....."

    I have read almost all of the Harry Bosch series and am truly enjoying this character! My mother was a police officer, as are a few of my close friends and Connelly nails the PD lifestyle and work environment. The Harry Bosch character was written with so much depth, one forgets he's a fictional character! I recommend all in the series!

    "Read the book instead..."

    It was difficult for me to get interested in this one, because the narration was awful!

    "Alright"

    This is my first experience with the author so I wasn't sure what to expect. I wasn't disappointed. I did look forward to getting in the car and listening to it because there was a pretty good amount of suspense involved. But, I found it a little predictable and thought the ending was a little flat.

    "Interesting characters"

    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.

    "Well..."

    Good Bosch, but not his best. Bogs down in part, but still worth a listen
