Publisher's Summary

After three years as a PI, Harry Bosch returns to the LAPD, working with his former cop ally and partner, Kizmin Rider. It was Kiz who helped to persuade him back into the blue religion. Harry and Kiz are assigned to the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit. These detectives are the Closers; they put a shovel in the dirt and turn over the past.

Harry and Kiz are thrown into a politically sensitive and dangerous case when a DNA match connects a white supremacist to the 1988 murder of a mixed race 16-year-old girl. These were the days before Rodney King, but the powder keg of hatred was merely waiting for the match.

Harry finds a police department far different from the one he left three years earlier. A new Chief has been brought over from New York to change the bad old culture of corruption, or that's the theory. But one thing hasn't changed, Harry's nemesis, Irvin Irving. The former Deputy Chief has been pushed from power. Full of vengeance, Irving calls Harry a "retread". He watches from the sidelines, hoping Harry will make a mistake, like a speeding bullet and never slows down for a moment.

The best book that I have listened to !

I would thoroughly recommend Michael Connelly to any Crime and Thrillers devotee...and this book in particular. It is one of his best and keeps you guessing to the end.
Prepare for some lost sleep because you won't be able to put it down !!!

The Closers

I was extremely disappointed with this book, compared to his other books which were fantastic. I thought the story line was pathetic. The narrator was a little annoying.

satisfactory character development

the narration lacked enthusiasm, sounded unrehearsed, and undirected. dampened my enjoyment of a reliable read.
