The new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly follows Detective Harry Bosch and his new partner as they investigate a recent murder where the trigger was pulled nine years earlier.

In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent.

Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Beginning with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveal that this shooting may have been anything but random.

In this gripping new novel, Michael Connelly shows once again why Harry Bosch is "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News).

My legion of followers (tongue in cheek) knows that I’m a big Harry Bosch fan. This book did not disappoint. The Bosch series is pure police procedural and Connelly really knows his stuff. He uses timely events and the most modern police techniques and tools well. Here Harry is teamed up with a young female detective named Soto, but there is no romance going on between them. I guess it’s no longer plausible that a guy his age (almost 65) can get the hot young chick. He mentors her and we are encouraged that she turns out to be one of the rising stars who really care.

Harry is on the cold case squad. A comatose shooting victim who has been at death’s door for almost 20 years finally passes through. The coroner rules the death a homicide due to the bullet, so they have a murder with the evidence sitting in 18-year-old files. All the original investigators are retired. Bosch and Soto are assigned the case. It turns out the shooting is connected to two crimes: a bank robbery and an arson. To make things more complicated, the arson was of Soto’s childhood residence in the barrio.

Harry leads the way in a very credible, professional step-by-step fashion to solve the crimes, while (of course) stepping on the toes of the politicos in and out of the department. I listened to the audiobook edition, which was read by Titus Welliver, who does a superb job playing Bosch in the Amazon Prime series (title: Bosch)

This was not the usually riveting Michael Connelly book. I got kind of lost and didn't care that much who the guilty parties were. Also, the reader for the previous audiobooks was Len Cariou. His reading holds the listener much more than this latest person does.
