Publisher's Summary

Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two.
DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? The latter possibility could compromise all of the lab's DNA cases currently in court.
Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics. Councilman Irvin Irving's son jumped or was pushed from a window at the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch's longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry handle the investigation.
Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.
Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

One Of The Best Bosch Books!

I have missed Harry Bosch, he is one of my favorite characters and this one didn't disappoint. He is back in rare form and he hasn't lost his touch. I love his daughter's character and I can see her being a future main character as she grows. It was definitely a great read and I was sorry when it ended.

Harry Bosch Rule!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Drop to be better than the print version?

I prefer the audio version because if the reader is good the story comes alive. Len Cariou narrated this book perfectly. He gave life to the characters. The printed edition cannot do that.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the juxtoposition of the two crimes -- they were different yet the author was able to blend the stories together well.

What about Len Cariou’s performance did you like?

It was Len's ability to enliven the characters in the book. As you listen along, it seems that you are watching a play.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Everyone count or none at all -- Harry Bosch

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Len Cariou's narration was perfect (and he does not have a lisp either), and the story is full of twist and turns typical of Connolly, that you really need to focus so as not to miss anything. Harry's relationship with his daughter is further developed in this story and it was done very well. Maddie is already displaying a sharp sense of observations and maturity, inherited from Eleanor Wish, her mother and Harry, her father. I can't wait until Maddie follows in Harry's footstep. She'll make a great detective!
