Publisher's Summary

Harry attacked his commanding officer and is suspended indefinitely, pending a psychiatric evaluation. At first he resists the LAPD shrink, but finally recognizes that something is troubling him and has for a long time. In 1961, when Harry was 12, his mother, a prostitute, was brutally murdered with no one ever accused of the crime.

With the spare time a suspension brings, Harry opens up the 30-year-old file on the case and is irresistibly drawn into a past he has always avoided. It's clear that the case was fumbled and the smell of a cover-up is unmistakable. Someone powerful was able to divert justice and Harry vows to uncover the truth. As he relentlessly follows the broken pieces of the case, the stirred interest causes new murders and pushes Harry to the edge of his job...and his life.

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

    "Slow start, great finish"

    Very much dives into Bosch's psyche in this one. There were quite a bit of psychologist sessions and talk about feelings. Had some slow parts. Overall, it's classic Connelly and a great crime caper. The true answers aren't revealed until the very end.

    Story
    "It's not over until it's over"

    Just when you think that the book is done, you find out that there's more to the story. It's interesting to see what really happened in this story. You won't see it coming.

    I've read his other books, and this is just as good.

    "Ghosts of the Past"

    Absolutely, loved it: this book reveals the story of Bosch’s upbringing, events leading upto his suspension and finally solving his mothers murder. During his investigation he meets Jazz both of them dealing with their own ghosts of the past. Dick Hill did an amazing job with the narration.

    Story
    "Good Feel for the Story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Coyote: Harry Bosch Series, Book 4 the most enjoyable?

    The pace of this narration fit the story far better than the previous book, Concrete Blond. It is as if the producer has found his or her rhythm. Also, Connelly let the coyote remain a metaphor and not a simile. in that way, he allowed the reader to enter the story. It may have been obvious but it didn't become patronizing.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I mostly play these while working alone and I can pay some attention. I had trouble putting this one down. Perhaps it was the personal investment in the crime that interested me. It was a good illustration of how difficult self definition and boundaries can be when a person is seriously affected.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was the initial Florida visit (not really one scene, but more an episode). I am not sure if Connely intended it, but each scene had Detective Bosch either voluntarily or not had to lower or lose his defenses only to find allies, helpers, or companions.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There is no Past


    Any additional comments?

    This may be the prime foundational book in the Harry Bosch series. It is a step in making Bosch a whole person.

    Story
    "Unfettered Perfection"

    I am a HUGE fan of Connelly. I think that he is not only one of the best genre writers to ever live but possibly one one of the best authors of our time. & The Last Coyote is one of the best in the Bosch series. So, in my humble opinion, you will have a hard time finding a better story than this. (caveat: you should read/listen to this series in chronological order).

    Two aspects of this story weave together to form a stunning narrative. One - this story is understated. Its not a race against the clock with some super hero trying to save the world. Instead its a 30 year old crime that Bosch is trying to solve, a crime no one cared about. Two - The writing style is complex. The narrative unfolds through flashbacks (sessions with a psychiatrist), conversations (stories told to others), self reflection (thoughts of the protagonist), and action (as the story unfolds). Its a tour de force of how to write a solid story without jumping from character to character or from time frame to time frame.

    Lastly, the narrator here, Dick Hill, he nails Bosch. I can't imagine anyone else reading this story better.

    So don't hesitate to get this. You wont regret it unless you are looking for 'action' in your mystery thriller.
