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).

    "Too short to be worth a credit."

    Story one dimensional and too short. Waste of a credit. Love other books with Harry B.

    "switchblade"

    It was too short. Write only full length novels. Good read but it needed more.

    "A short story not a book!"

    I so like Harry Bosch that I didn't pay attention past the promise 'next harry Bosch'. It's 50 minutes long and no mystery involved. Don't waste a credit!

    Story
    "Appetizer or dessert, you be the judge."

    Sometimes the appetizer or dessert is the best part of the meal. This short story stands on its own, complete, complete with a twist, and strong identification with the pain and suffering experienced by those who come into contact with the killer. Bosch suffers as well, like a ship in a storm, but he shoulders aside the threatening waves, and is relentless, he only asks for the opportunity and authority to pursue. The great chef published this story because he knew he had created something delicious that we would appreciate and would not want to miss.

    Story
    "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.
