Publisher's Summary

Only the money was real. Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. Bosch got off a shot that struck one of the robbers as their van sped away, but the money was never recovered. And the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

Now Bosch moves full-bore back into that case, determined to find justice for the young woman. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear in the guilty, he learns afresh how brutally indifferent the world can be. But something draws him on, past humiliation and harassment. It's not just that the dead woman had no discernible link to the robbery. Nor is it his sympathy for the cops who took the case over, one of them killed on duty and the other paralyzed by a bullet in the same attack. With every conversation and every thread of evidence, Bosch senses a larger presence, an organization bigger than the movie studios and more ruthless than even the LAPD. The part of Bosch that will never back down finds as fatal an opponent as he's ever encountered - and there's no guarantee that Bosch will survive the showdown ahead.

Don't miss Detective Harry Bosch on the case in these Michael Connelly crime fiction novels.

What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Winner, Mystery, Fiction, 2004

"It's never pretty watching Harry [Bosch] edge toward connection with those he loves and then back away...but it just may be the most compelling train wreck in crime fiction." (Booklist, Starred Review)
"This exciting procedural is as good as any in the series." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "what an ending."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would.. the book had me a little confused with all the players, I must say this was the first time I couldn't figure out who the bad guy was in the book. Very shocked at the ending..


    What did you like best about this story?

    That Harry meet his daughter. And that he found the lady cop and actually solved another mystery.


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

    Not sure but he was good.


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

    OMG yes the part where they watched the video of the old cop that was in the bed and his wife taking care of him that was sad and again when he meet his daughter.. and also when Harry figured out who the bad guys were and he had to come back to the old guy I couldn't believe it.

    This is my least favorite of the Bosch books so far it bounced all over the place and seemed thrown together

    "Great book!!"

    Another great story of Harry Bosch with familiar characters from previous novels. Recommend it as part of the story of Harry Bosch.

    Story
    "Harry Bosch - where angels fear to tread"

    You'll be so glad that Harry comes out of retirement for this clever freelance investigation, nailing a bunch of bad guys, despite interference and obstruction from his old cop colleagues and the FBI.
    Not my favourite Connelly book but well worth the listen.

    "Good story, grape narration."

    The story was good, the narrator though carried the book. I have all of the Harry Bosch books and my collection and Lin is by far the best narrator available.

    "Just so happy!"

    As always GREAT story, no that's not correct...better. The icing on the cake is a new narrator from the last and looking forward I see he will be doing others.

    I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.

    "Amazing story"

    I am a big Harry Bosch fan and I don't think anyone reads him better than Len Cariou. This story is captivating and really held my attention. I listen to a lot of audio books- A LOT! and some pass from memory almost immediately. But this is one I will hold onto for a long time. There is real pathos in the story and also intrigue. You know a book is good when you are driving down the road and yell, "oh no!" at a dramatic moment in the text. That is what listening to this book was like for me.

    Story
    "Felt fatigued with the way the story was read"
    What did you like best about Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9? What did you like least?

    I've read a lot of Connelly and Bosch and may expect too much. I quit after a couple of hours. I may have missed the better parts.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I felt the story was read one sentence at a time. Each sentence was terminal. I felt as though I were in a class for translators: here this, translate it, be scored. I tried faster speed but then when characters spoke, it was too fast and swallowed. It wore me out.


    Any additional comments?

    Because the reader and I didn't hit it off, I felt Connelly was exhausted, too: just one more page and I can go to bed... I wish the publisher would quit hounding me to finish...
