Description

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 twenty-nine-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 to authorities for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.

Professional reviews

"Detective Harry Bosch is facing retirement, juggling two cases, getting to know a woman, and dealing with his teenage daughter. While the love interest doesn't add much, Connelly bounces deftly between the parallel cases, and narrator Len Cariou keeps pace. While his voices for the women aren't outstanding, he shines with the protagonist. A grizzled tone reflects the detective's mood. It is not overbearing yet is clear enough to let the listener get a good feel for Bosch's personality. Cariou also gives distinctive inflections to Bosch's Asian-American partner, a sought-after suspect, and a crime victim. Not-so-subtle foreshadowing suggests that Bosch will be around for a while longer. One hopes Cariou will come along for the ride. M.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
