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!

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

First Connelly Dissappointment

Any additional comments?

Cariou is Harry Bosh. He was, as usual, excellent.<br/><br/>I am a huge Connelly fan. I've read all of his books to-date and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. When I discovered this and a couple of other short-stories, I was eager to get my next dose. After listening to it, I feel let down. The story builds in typical Harry Bosch fashion and then it ends. The impression I was left with was this was either a concept for a future book that the author found and released or that he was past a deadline and had to get it submitted, so he ended it where he was.<br/><br/>Still a Connelly fan, but disappointed.

Classic Bosch

Good story overall. Not as riveting as some of connelly's others. I adore Len's delivery.

Great way to kill an hour

Engrossing tale from a great story teller.
A mini version of one of his books. Makes for a quick listen when all you have time for is a quicky.

Too short....

Didn't realize it was a short story. Not a bad story, just didn't have character development that his other novels do.

Great story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Great short read. The story is super and what's even better is that it is narrated by Len Cariou. Too bad the current Harry Bosch books are being destroyed by using other narrators.

What about Len Cariou’s performance did you like?

Len has a great voice. He does a great job with the voices and the narration parts.

Any additional comments?

Well worth it. This short story is great to read after you read the Mickey Haller - The Gods of Guilt.

Good read for a short story.

Wish it was longer. I have reached the end of the series. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

What's the Point?

I'm not sure what a reader is supposed to get out of this. There wasn't really a mystery here, there was no character development, no insights into Bosch's life, past, relationships, approach to detective work, nothing.

I love Michael Connelly and have enjoyed (almost) all of his full-length novels, but this was a baffling disappointment and an empty reading experience - I thought I'd relish even a little dose of Bosch while I eagerly anticipate "The Burning Room," but I'd have been better off just waiting for the novel.
