Publisher's Summary

Harry attacked his commanding officer and is suspended indefinitely, pending a psychiatric evaluation. At first he resists the LAPD shrink, but finally recognizes that something is troubling him and has for a long time. In 1961, when Harry was 12, his mother, a prostitute, was brutally murdered with no one ever accused of the crime.With the spare time a suspension brings, Harry opens up the 30-year-old file on the case and is irresistibly drawn into a past he has always avoided. It's clear that the case was fumbled and the smell of a cover-up is unmistakable. Someone powerful was able to divert justice and Harry vows to uncover the truth. As he relentlessly follows the broken pieces of the case, the stirred interest causes new murders and pushes Harry to the edge of his job...and his life.

Bosch's past revealed

The Last Coyote fills in some of LA Detective Harry Bosch's history. Fans of Michael Connelly's relentless Detective know that he is the orphaned son of a LA prostitute who was killed in the early 1960's and the crime was never cleared. In this book, Bosch finally decides that he cannot let the crime go unsolved and, he finds, unvestigated any longer and begins his own private investigation, an adventure that once again gets Harry Bosch crosswise with the LA Police Department. The book has all the plot twists and turns that readers expect from Connelly and keeps the readers interest until the final page. I have read 12 of the books in the Bosch series and have read them in a random order. Wherever you are in your travels through Bosch's life, this book will fit.

A good read

I enjoy this author. I prefer the narrator on the more recent books but this was a good story for filling in the background information on the main character, Harry Bosch. After reading several of the later books where the events of his earlier life are referred to I am glad the earlier books have been added to the selection at Audible.
