Everyone thinks they know the story of Milly Dowler. Haunting headlines about the missing schoolgirl splashed across front pages. The family's worst fears realised when her body was found months later. The years of waiting for the truth, only to learn that the killer, known to the police, lived just yards from where Milly had vanished. The parents subjected to horrific psychological torture at a trial orchestrated by the murderer.

Revered in Newcastle and the North-East, Sir Bobby Robson is a man whose fame knows no boundaries and who enjoys phenomenal popularity. His hugely successful playing days with Fulham and West Brom in the 1950s and 1960s, his 20 England caps and his brilliant management career over the past 38 years mean that he has inspired generations of fans.

So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

The blonde who walks into PI Elvis Cole's office is the best-looking woman he's seen in weeks. The only things that keep her from rating a perfect '10' are the briefcase on one arm and the affluent man on the other who needs his 13th-century Japanese manuscript back, and fast. Cole knows nothing about Japan that he didn't learn from Shogun, but he knows a lot about crooks, and his sidekick Joe Pike knows even more.

Where does Stalking the Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

High on my list of Cole and Pike noir and adventure stories.

What did you like best about this story?

You never know or guess how the last chapter will end.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The best part of the story was the telling of Pikes first experience with the L.A.P.D. and the telling of his First Kill.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The story left me emotionally drained of how Pike became of,what he is now,a very private guy.

Any additional comments?

A must listen to all Robert Crais,Cole and Pike enthusiasts.
