Summary

In 1993 Harry Bosch was assigned the case of a missing person, Marie Gesto. The young woman was never found - dead or alive - and the case has haunted Bosch ever since. 

Thirteen years later Bosch is in the Open Unsolved Unit when he gets a call from the DA's office. A man accused of two killings is willing to confess to several other murders in a deal to avoid the death penalty. One of his victims, he says, is Marie Gesto. Bosch begins to crack when he realises he and his partner missed a clue back in 1993 which could have prevented the nine murders that followed the killing of Marie Gesto.

Another great Harry Bosch tale

I love Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch books and this is no exception. A riveting story, brilliant narration from Len Cariou and mentions of previous cases or people which, if you have listened to the previous audiobooks, make you feel like an insider in what is going on. Superb

Another Bosch Classic

Gritty realistic pulling no punches... Another superbly written well researched book by Michael Connelly and story that with the benefits of Audible puts you, the listener instantly involved in the storey line.
Highly recommended.

Classic Harry Bosch

A great crime thriller from the master of suspense. As always Harry is a flawed policeman who is frequently on the edge of the thin blue line in his pursuit of the mission. This is a particularly well put together example in the series. The narrator Len Cariou as always does a great job and brings the characters to life.

Better than the TV version

this is the first book in the series that I've felt genuinely better than the TV series' telling of the same story.

Another Great story from my Favourite Detective

Enjoyed every page, so many twists and turns. Having seen the Bosch TV series there are segments that are familiar but don't spoil the overall story.

Great storytelling,shame about the Muzak!

Pity the producers who have to justify their existence by trying,and failing,to improve on a well crafted, beautifully narrated example of crime fiction from a master of the genre. The words don’t need the random intrusive and annoying bursts of Muzak which someone must have thought was creative. You have a competent reader,you have done enough!

Harry’s the man

The Harry Bosch stories are superb. I listen to them whilst driving and I get stuck into the plots. I have to turn off the television so that I can finish the book to solve the case before my next journey. I just can’t wait. I have most of the Audible releases for Harry and I will keep going until I have them all.
