In "Christmas Even", the case of a burglar killed in mid-heist leads Bosch to retrace a link to his past. In "Father's Day", Bosch investigates a young boy's seemingly accidental death and confronts his own fears as a father. In "Angle of Investigation", Bosch delves into one of the first homicides he ever worked, back as a uniformed rookie patrolman, a case that was left unsolved for decades.
Together, these gripping stories span Bosch's controversial career at the LAPD and show the evolution of the haunted, legendary investigator he would become. Utterly unputdownable, they are proof that "Connelly is a crime writing genius." (Independent on Sunday).

I Listened to all 3 short story collections back to back. Im normally a fan of the long story, where the small side plots eventually feed into the bigger narrative. This collection isnt like that and feels like a group of stories that couldnt be developed into a bigger or more dynamic story. Each short is enjoyable enough but I didnt feel as fullfilled as I do with the longer Bosch stories. Very much worth a listen and Im glad I did as a Bosch fan. Some seriels change narators or use a good performer regardless of context but for me Len Cariou is Bosch, I dont know what Bosch looks like (I have an image in my head) but I know what he sounds like and its len Cariou is performance isnt the most textured but its perfect for the old time detective.
"Typical of the author - very well read."
very interesting plots
Don't think I could improve on the original.
The talk with the saxophone player about the boat experience.
When he gave the sax back.
Worthwhile read - well done.
