Publisher Description

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 than any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.

Quotes

  • “Despite some shockingly sunny developments in his personal life, Bosch wears his depression like armor, making him the perfect hero for our paranoid age.”

    - New York Times
  • “Connelly’s skill as a prose craftsman remains in full force. He writes about Los Angeles and its environs as poignantly and beautifully as anyone since Nathanael West.”

    - USA Today
  • “An enthralling and labyrinthine crime novel.”

    - Sunday Times (London)
  • “As always, Connelly does many things well. He has internalized police procedure and the way cops think; he knows them as well as he knows himself. His prose is increasingly lean and muscular…His plot, so seemingly straightforward, builds to a series of surprises, both in the investigation and in Harry’s personal life. In novel after novel, Harry has been trying to save his soul, and as this one ends he finally, unexpectedly, has salvation in his grasp.”

    - Washington Post
  • “Connelly never disappoints…In Lost Light, Michael Connelly ventures into new territory by having the taciturn Bosch narrate the story. It takes nerve and skill to tinker with a formula as successful as the Bosch series. Happily, Connelly has plenty of both…Lost Light has all of the ingenious plotting and skillful writing that are Connelly’s hallmarks.”

    - Baltimore Sun
  • “Reader Cariou…has the timbre and talent to capture the sound and the moods of Harry: thoughtful, tough, driven, yet surprisingly hopeful. His treatment of the other characters—from a raspy-voiced, paraplegic ex-cop to Bosch’s disillusioned former partner Kizmin Rider—is nearly as effective. The quality of the narration plus the added production details…result in an intriguing, suspenseful audio noir package, as dark and edgy as its hero-narrator.”

    - Publishers Weekly (audio review)
  • “Len Cariou keeps the listener completely involved. His nuanced, well-paced reading draws one into the action, not letting us sit back as passive listeners. And his Harry Bosch is entirely believable—tired, a bit jaded, yet fiercely on the case.”

    " Enjoyable as always, but I'm not sure I buy the private eye angle for Harry. I like police procedurals because while exaggerated they are realistic. I just don't believe that private eyes find themselves in the kinds of situations that Harry is always in. I do love Harry though and I'm curious about how Maddie will affect his life, so I'll read on. "

    " Takes a little while to gather steam (particularly because the first 50 pages or so have an unusual tone for a Bosch), but once it gets rolling this one is very solid. I enjoy how Connelly lays it out in a solid police procedural fashion and doesn't try to stick to the rules that govern other types of mysteries because that really would have interfered with how the case is resolved and those responsible are unmasked. I also love the ending to this one - I feel like it offers a number of interesting dramatic possibilities for further installments in the series. "

    " With two exceptions, you can't go wrong reading a Bosch novel, if'n you like detective mysteries. The exceptions? You have to read them for continuity anyway so I'm not saying. "

    " This is the story where haunted by one of the un solved murders, Harry sets out to investigate the case on his retirement from LAPD. The book has all the elements which makes it fast paced like LAPD politics, FBI, FBI counter terrerist division and a Movie set robbery.Fast paced,and good read. "

    " Connelly is the best crime writer in my opinion, however the law of diminishing returns is begininng to set in on this series. I am not a fan of the switch to first person writing either. "

    " This book is somewhat predictable as an L.A. detective mystery. The first half is primarily a description of the bureaucratic nightmare of the L.A.P.D and the F.B.I. The second half gets more interesting as the mystery unfolds and the action kicks up. A couple of twists and turns at the end. "
