Release Date

11 hours 12 minutes
When an LAPD narcotics officer is found with a fatal bullet wound and a suicide note, Detective Harry Bosch follows a bloody trail of drug murders across the Mexico border.

Working the case, LAPD detective Harry Bosch is reminded of the primal police rule he learned long ago: Don't look for the facts, but the glue that holds them together. Soon Harry's making some very dangerous connections, starting with a dead cop and leading to a bloody string of murders that wind from Hollywood Boulevard to the back alleys south of the border. Now this battle-scarred veteran will find himself in the center of a complex and deadly game-one in which he may be the next and likeliest victim.

I've liked all the Bosch stories until this one, which I found so uninteresting that my mind kept wandering. Just couldn't concentrate. I used to like Dick Hill's narrations, but I agree with another poster that Len Cariou is much better.

Another great novel with twists at every turn by literary genius, Michael Connelly.

Excellent diversion from a boring drive. All the twists and turns that I have come to expect from Michael Connelly.

I completely enjoyed this book! I'm going backwards in the series having listened to many of the later Harry Bosch stories first. Now I'm starting at the beginning & filling in the gaps of Harry ' s life. I think the stories & the character become more interesting as the series progresses, but this is the foundation of that character building. I'll be listening to the rest of the books in the series as I can get to them.

An okay book, I agree with most other reviews, right down the middle as far as enjoyment. I didn't want to quit listening to it, but I was never tempted to stay in the car after my commute listening to it as I have with other books. Bosch is a great character, and you'd certainly want him on your side when it came down to it. Descriptive and colorful narrative, and I liked the narrater.

Not my favorite Bosch story. I was introduced to Harry when I read The Closers and this story just doesn't compare. I found it a little dry and not extraordinarily interesting. I'll admit, the narrator isn't my favorite Harry...I think Len Cariou does a MUCH better job, I personally find this guy a bit, well, boring. Overall, however, I like the Bosch stories and will keep renting books by Michael Connelly.

Part Clint Eastwood's "Dirty Harry" and part Fred Dyer's "Hunter" I was enthralled with the Bosch character from page one. I will admitt that the narrator is part of the draw here. If this book made it to the big screen and the actor playing Bosch didn't sound like this narrator, I'd give it bad reviews. This guy's voice sounds like a cop who has had a few to many cigs and cups of coffee. Beyond the narrator, the plot is good, the diversions (Bosch's love life, dirty cops, etc.) were intriging, and the characters all made this worth the read alone. Great book for me, I couldn't wait until my next drive to listen to another chapter. I read the other reviews here and was tentative about this one as a result, but I'll stand alone if I must and say I LOVED IT!

It had a good plot with a few good twists and turns, but there were too many loose ends. I had a hard time getting into and staying with this book.

I love Harry Bosch, but not this story. No hook. It was good for getting to sleep!
