Publisher's Summary

On New Year's Day, Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch fields a call that a dog has found a bone - a bone that the dog's owner, a doctor, feels certain is human.That chance discovery leads Bosch to a shallow grave in the Hollywood hills, evidence of a murder committed more than 20 years earlier. It's a cold case, but it stirs up Bosch's memories of his own childhood as an orphan in the city. Digging through police reports and hospital records, tracking down street kids and runaways from the 1970s, Bosch finds a family ripped apart by an absence - and a trail, ever more tenuous, into a violent, terrifying world.As the case takes Bosch deeper into the past, a rookie cop named Julia Brasher brings him alive in the present in a way no one has in years. Bosch has been warned about the trouble that comes with dating a rookie, but no warning could withstand the heat between them - or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a hard turn.Drawing on the "precision-tooled twists" and "wellspring of authentically lurid detail" (Los Angeles Magazine) that have made him one of the fasted-selling novelists at work today, Michael Connelly has written a riveting, hard-edged, and unforgettable thriller.

What a great listen!

This was a wonderful book. I have not listened to any of Michael Connelly's books, so this one was my first. It was really great. Very enjoyable. The main character, "Harry Bosch" is a very lovable guy. If you liked the old movies that featured Humphrey Bogart, you'll love this one. The narrator sounds like old Bogie himself. So I could actually visualize him as Harry Bosch. There are some surprises in line for you as to 'who dunnit' if you choose to listen to this great story. This was quite a long story, but I didn't mind.I will now go back and purchase some more books by this author, especially the books about Detective Harry Bosch.
