I love Connelly's Bosch novels and normally, an author of gets better with age. Having said that, I wasn't expecting this first book in the Bosch series to be as good as the later novels in the series.
This book is probably one of my top 2 or 3 favorites!!
Connelly manages to weave together a very intriguing and complex story!!
I kept saying to myself, "This Story is going to have SOOOOOO many holes", but he masterfully ties up all the loose ends.
The reader does a good job as well.

I have read all of the Harry Bosch mysteries over the past few years. While I am not a lifelong Dectective devotee, Harry Bosch is my favorite character and Michael Connelly is my favorite author. Somehow I have managed to read the 13 Bosch books in a random order. This book, The Black Echo, is the first in the series and recounts Harry Bosch's days as a "tunnel rat" during the Vietnam War. It does a good job of filling in the blanks that you only get bits and pieces about in the later works. As a testament to the talented pen of Connelly, much/most of the Bosch character is developed in this first book.
If you haven't read any of the Bosch series, this is a good place to start. If you have read later books, you will still enjoy this one.

Initially I wanted to return the book, as The beginning of it was not exactly comprehensible and does not give an idea of the story to come. But if you have the same feeling, be patient - it shall come... The story, the thrill, the character of detective - everything is there.
