Summary

When the bones of a boy are found scattered in the Hollywood Hills, Harry Bosch is drawn into a case that brings up dark memories from his past. Unearthing hidden stories, he finds the child's identity and reconstructs his fractured life, determined that he won't be forgotten.

At the same time, a new love affair with a female cop begins to blossom - until a stunningly blown mission leaves him in more trouble than ever before. The investigation races to a shocking conclusion and leaves Bosch on the brink of an unimaginable decision...

Ruined by the music

Unnecessary dramatic music at the end of random chapters ruined the flow of the storytelling.

IThank you for introducing me ro Art Pepper!

Where does City of Bones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

mid

What other book might you compare City of Bones to, and why?

Not the best Harry Bosch, mainly due to naration.

Have you listened to any of Peter Jay Fernandez’s other performances? How does this one compare?

no

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

Art Pepper was a saxophonist who had passed me by. My thanks.

stop the music

I hate how the producers have ruined the end of many chapters by sticking music over the readers voice. let me listen to the great story and naration and stop spoling it with music I don't want to hear!

I'm getting a bit impatient.....

with Harry Bosch. This book is no less good than the others, very listenable. Good story, good reading, and one is sure the details are credible.

But I'm starting to find Bosch slightly annoying. All right, he's a man with a mission. But honestly, would he perform his mission any less effectively if he were a little less inconsiderate to his love interest and rude to his colleagues? Could he sometimes not consider the possibility that he might be mistaken? Might he not get better results if he got a bit of a life?

Fantastic

Another great novel from a master of crime fiction. As always, in Bosch series you are hooked from the begging. Full of twists and turns. Loved every minute of it.

Bosch good as ever

Another Harry Bosch story living up to expectations. narration took some getting used to. Male and female voice had little distinction. Some chapters end with a really annoying musical chord which adds nothing to the experience. Don't let this put you off, it's a great story, with the usual plots and sub-plots.
