Reviews

Bosch and Connelly are at their finest...a cracking pace...the investigation [is] tightly focused and credible.

-- "Orlando Sentinel"

Harry Bosch is at the top of his form...His latest adventure is as dark and angst-ridden as any of Bosch's past outings, but it also crackles with energy especially in the details of police procedure and internal politics that animate virtually every page. What other crime writer could make such dramatic use of the fact that the front door of a house trailer swings out rather than in, creating problems for a two-man team of detectives? Who else would create to such credible narrative effect an egotistic celebrity coroner who jeopardizes an investigation because she lets a TV camera crew from Court TV follow her around, or an overage female rookie cop so in love with danger that she commits an unthinkable act?..Connelly is such a careful, quiet writer that he can slow down the story to sketch in some relatively minor characters...without missing a beat.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Bosch never stops feeling the bruises he has acquired through multiple encounters with evil. His view of the world darkens with each case, and he feels more and more powerless...Harry wanders deeper into that abyss this time than ever before, and it drives him to a shocking decision that will leave series fans reeling. Hard-boiled cop fiction at its most gripping.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Provides plenty of red herrings, plot twists, and romantic interest that will keep readers guessing for a long time.

-- "Library Journal"

Harry still shines as a detective, and the sorry souls the evidence flushes out into the open go far to explain his conviction that 'in every murder is the tale of a city.'

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Reader Fernandez'...capture(s) quite well the detective's cold, unsentimental, and unyielding dedication to the job at hand.

-- "Publishers Weekly (audio review)"

Harry's investigations uncover secrets-some better left undisturbed...Well read by Peter Jay Fernandez, Connelly's latest thriller provides plenty of red herrings, plot twists, and romantic interest that will keep listeners guessing for a long time.

-- "Library Journal (audio review)"

Peter Jay Fernandez's portryal of Bosch expresses the cop's dogged pursuit of the case, as well as his frustations with it...Intriguing listening.

-- "AudioFile"

Hard-boiled cop fiction at its most gripping.
