Michael Connelly is an excellent writer and Harry Bosch is a wonderful character. This book takes him on his premiere post-police days adventure and sets the tone for books to come. Very good read.

You've gotta love Harry Bosch...even with all of his flaws. While Harry is retired from the LAPD, that doesn't stop him from investigating a crime that took place 4 years ago and a scene that has haunted his dreams. He incurs the wrath of the LAPD and the FBI when he starts snooping into the cold case files, but that makes him more determined to find the killer of Angela Benton and the thieves that took the 2 million dollars from the movie set where she worked.

The vision has haunted him for four years--a young woman lying crumpled in death, her hand outstretched in silent supplication. Harry Bosch was taken off the Angella Benton murder case when the production assistant's death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the L.A.P.D., Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear into the guilty, he's on his own. And even in the face of an opponent more powerful and ruthless that any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.

Harry Bosch has turned his back on his job as an LAPD detective. Although Bosch has a private eye license, he hasn't decided to take up that job. Instead, he is haunted by a case that took place 4 years before. But the powers-that-be are all aligned against him as he searches for answers. The FBI, LAPD, and others are set against Bosch.

There's $2 million dollars cash that is still missing from a movie set, a missing (and presumed dead) FBI agent, a dead and gravely-injured former LAPD detectives who were caught in the line-of-fire while trying to solve a young woman's murder, and so on. This story is very complex and has many parts that must be wound back to their source.

Most of Harry Bosch's stories are solved cerebrally but in this one there is action. The reason I could belive that Harry held his own is because of his Vietnam skills honed years before. Actually, this story is superb. There are so many parts to this story that the reader must stay tuned at all times to follow the diverse (and sporadic) clues to the solution.

Besides all of this on his professional plate, Harry is troubling over his former wife. Eleanor has become very successful as a Las Vegas gambler. Harry realizes that he is still emotionally involved with Eleanor Wish and he wonders how he can approach her with his feelings. One hint: LOST LIGHT and THE 9 DRAGONS are the two Harry Bosch stories that cause the personal life of our hero to change the most.

I don't usually comment on the readers of audiobooks but Len Cariou has captured Harry Bosch's persona. Some readers tell you what is happening but Cariou brings the listener along for the wild ride.
