On New Year's Day, a dog finds a bone in the Hollywood Hills--and unearths a murder committed more than twenty years earlier. It's a cold case, but for Detective Harry Bosch, it stirs up memories of his childhood as an orphan. He can't let it go. As the investigation takes Bosch deeper into the past, a beautiful rookie cop brings him alive in the present. No official warning can break them apart--or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a few hard turns. Suddenly all of L.A. is in an uproar, and Bosch, fighting to keep control, is driven to the brink of an unimaginable decision. Download and start listening now!

    " I love Michael Connelly and Harry Bosch is my favorite, but this one fell a little short. It was still a good listen but I felt like we were left hanging on a few points. The rookie, Julia Brasher, is one of the things that just doesn’t quite fit in. After the “tragedy”, and I won’t give that away, but after that happens, it’s almost like she never existed. Harry doesn’t find out more about her or anything, she’s hardly mentioned, even when he’s “thinking” to himself. The kind of cop Harry is; I would think he would have tried to find out more about her. The plot twists were well written, a little unexpected; which was good, but then a bit of a letdown at the end I thought. All in all it was a good listen and unlike other reviewers, I didn’t have a problem with the reader, I liked his deep voice, I thought it added character to Harry. "

    " I'm a fan so I have absolutely no objectivity- love this stuff- already had ready Lost Light but re-read it in this anthology and didn't mind doing it. "
