Another great one from Michael Connelly. In fact, one of the best of his that I've read. If you are from the L.A. area you will especially enjoy following Harry Bosch all around town and picturing it in your minds eye. The fact that I frequently drive to work right past one of the murder scenes depicted in the book kind of tickles me, I must admit. Even if you aren't familiar with L.A., the mystery will really grab you. It's really a modern day noir thriller.

Harry Bosch is on trial for killing an unarmed man believed to be a serial killer. However, a new body has been found and Harry is starting to believe that maybe he did kill an innocent man. This book jumps back and forth between the trial and the murder investigation. An awful lot of tedious court room drama and some exciting police work balance out this story. Another great Bosch tale.

If you love Harry Bosch, you love this one. He is about to be discredited again, but discovers a new twist on a 4-year-old case that redeems him. As usual, in his private life, Harry means to open up and have a "real" relationship, but his job leaves him little time to tend to such matters.
It's another good read from Connelly -- suspenseful and multi-layered.

The more I read of Connelly the more I fall in love with this author. The plot was delivered in such a way it kept me enticed until the end. The utilization of his characters is very creative. This was an excellent read and just makes me read more.

This review is for the abridged audio cassette version.

There are quite a few reviews lauding the main character, Harry Bosch, and in my opinion he's a keeper (though his lady-friend seems a bit whiny).

This particular abridged version of the book is entertaining and satisfying, overall. The book has been abridged down to approximately 3 hours. I don't know if it's the publisher (Nova Audiobooks) or just the act of such heavy abridgement, but there are jumps and gaps that leave the listener (me) wondering, "How did he come to that conclusion?"

I think those jumps and gaps are to be expected, and the full-length version will (I assume) fill in the holes. This version is just fine, though.
