Publisher's Summary

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch seeks justice for the forgotten in this original story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly

An anonymous tip puts Bosch on a case that has remained unsolved for decades, the vicious stabbing of a teenage boy whose body was found in an abandoned Old Hollywood restaurant.

Cold cases are often the toughest: With no body, no murder scene, and no fingerprints, Bosch nevertheless gets lucky when DNA evidence from the murder weapon points to a known killer. But the DA insists that science alone is not enough - he needs the case to be bulletproof before he'll take it to court.

Determined to speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves, Bosch has one chance to wrench a confession out of a cold-blooded killer, or risk letting him walk free for good.

In this gripping, never-before-published story by "master of the crime thriller" (Huffington Post ) Michael Connelly, Detective Harry Bosch quenches his thirst for justice and shows why he is "one of the most popular and enduring figures in American crime fiction" (Chicago Tribune).

Nice Harry Bosch short story.

This could have been a subplot in a Harry Bosch novel. It all came together nicely and did span quite a bit of time in less than an hour of listening. Harry as usual pieces things together and closes another case.

short but sweet

this story was short. only 2 chapters but I still liked it. I never saw it coming that the ex wife was assisting the unsolved unit in keeping her ex-husband locked up..

I spent a full audible credit for this short book.

this book was way too short for a full audible credit. I was done with the book and no more than 30 minutes. I don't think that that is right and I think I should get my credit back. This was one short story there should at least be in for more in order to earn my credit. I am not satisfied

waste of money-seems undeveloped

Story seems embryonic, undeveloped/underdeveloped. Even if author was aiming for O. Henry-inspired ending, that was ineffective for me.

Narrator (L. Carriou) adequate, but not among my favourites of the Bosch-series narrators. Even in this brief piece, narrator Carriou manages once again through his voiceovers to stereotype characters in stilted, outdated, often demeaning ways. (I did not notice this tendency in the other narrators, or when I previously read the hardcover book versions on my own. I find it quite annoying).

lacking in substance.

Narrator was fine. Story was lacking in every way. Don't waste your money on it. Mr Connelly didn't earn it for this one.

Good Short Story

This was a good short story. I read one of the books in the series and wasn't blown away by it, but I may try and give the series another shot based on this. The ending had a twist I didn't see coming and I liked how it came together; plus, I always enjoy the cold case books and the forensic details that are essential to the plot. The narration was good as well.

Hated this one

Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or Len Cariou?

I like the Bosch series, but this narrator was horrible and boring. I gave up trying to listen to it after just 30 minutes!

Great

A perfect short story-. plus + in and out in less than 1 hr. Detail-rich, some tension and surprise, yet faithful to the Bosch character.

Too Short!

I regret having used a full credit for one-tenth the book. I am a huge Bosch fan
