Publisher's Summary

Harry Bosch is facing the end of the line. He's been put on the DROP - Deferred Retirement Option Plan - and given three years before his retirement is enforced. Seeing the end of the mission coming, he's anxious for cases. He doesn't have to wait long.
First a cold case gets a DNA hit for a rape and murder which points the finger at a 29-year-old convicted rapist who was only eight at the time of the murder. Then a city councilman's son is found dead - fallen or pushed from a hotel window - and he insists on Bosch taking the case despite the two men's history of enmity. The cases are unrelated, but they twist around each other like the double helix of a DNA strand. One leads to the discovery of a killer operating in the city for as many as three decades; the other to a deep political conspiracy that reached back into the dark history of the police department.

Another great Michael Connelly Book with lots of twists and turn that keep the listener interested. Don't miss it.

Another Great Listen

Connelly you can't go wrong!
I find myself pulling over to the side of the road just to hear a bit more.
The mix of Police proceedure, Bosch's personal life wrapped up in a mystery thriller is all you could want.

Best Yet

I've got to confess to being a Michael Connelly fan, but this is the best yet, unputdownable!

Up to the usual standard

It's extraordinary how Michael Connelly keeps up such a high standard. This Harry Bosch story is just as good as the others, with the usual twists and turns. The ending is rather downbeat - but this is a small complaint, set against the tight plotting and gritty realism of the rest of the book. Is Harry approaching the end of his career? Let's hope not.

It is well read - although there are a number of short and entirely superfluous musical interludes which do nothing of any value.
