Terry McCaleb, the retired FBI agent who starred in the bestseller Blood Work, is asked by the LAPD to help them investigate a series of murders that have them baffled. They are the kind of ritualized killings McCaleb specialized in solving with the FBI, and he is reluctantly drawn from his peaceful new life back into the horror and excitement of tracking down a terrifying homicidal maniac. More horrifying still, the suspect who seems to fit the profile that McCaleb develops is someone he has known and worked with in the past: LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It takes a special performer to do justice to Connelly’s thrillers because of his complex character development and psychological bent…To Richard M. Davidson’s credit, the listener can really picture the gravelly voiced Bosch as he interplays with the more mild-mannered McCaleb. The trial sequences are especially interesting because Davidson is called upon to portray a multiplicity of characters in tandem. This reviewed was captivated by the content and performance, listening long into the night.”


  • “A surprising and suspenseful read.”


  • “Davidson’s crisp, sharp-edged narration manages a number of different characters’ voices while maintaining the clear narrative thread. As the mystery becomes more entangled and the two detectives find themselves on opposite sides of a tricky investigation, Davidson ratchets up the tension.”

    Booklist (audio review)

  • “Connelly…weaves his intricate story with skill; his characters are rounded and complex…Interesting and exciting.”

    Library Journal

  • “The plot is intricate, and the twists and turns keep coming, but it is so well done, and the characters are so vivid, that confusion isn’t a problem…A fast read with ‘can’t put it down’ appeal.”

    School Library Journal

  • “[An] extraordinary excursion into good, evil, and the labyrinth of human motives…You can’t lose with this chilling tour-de-force.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Barry Bridges | 2/16/2014

    " Okay so it's not the best Bosch novel but it's still a good book. Connelly re-introduces Terry McCaleb and Jack McEvoy although the latter merely as a plot help to save introducing a new character. The one thing that struck me was how some of the histroy of the novel was laid down in previous Bosch books and begs the question - how far ahead has Bosch been planned. If you haven't read any Bosch before though please start at the beginning as it's assumed you know the man.... "

    " I didn't care for this Connelly as much. Just didn't feel the same as the others. "

    " Way too predictable. I love Connelly's Bosch series, but this is not a true Harry Bosch series book. This book puts a parenthesis on the Terry McCaleb character's two-book role in the Bosch series. The book also seems to be designed to flesh out the Bosch character and, related to this, provides an art history lesson on the artist Bosch. However, most of this comes out eventually in the rest of the series. Finally, what's with the frequent use of autoerotic asphyxia in this genre. This is literally the third book in a row I have read that uses this weak plot crutch. I may have to start giving an automatic two-star rating to any book where this is used. "
