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.

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).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Bosch has become Mr. Connelly's most durable, well-entrenched creation. Janet Maslin, New York Times
The Black Echo introduced Connelly as the heir apparent to Raymond Chandler and also helped usher in a new approach to the police procedural. Now, twenty years later, Connelly is still writing about Harry Bosch, continuing to discover new layers to this now iconic character with increasingly complex and believable plots....Connelly makes him a fresh and original character each outing. Oline H. Cogdill, Miami Herald
Connelly proves again that neither he nor Bosch has lost his touch. Christian DuChateau, CNN
Harry Bosch is as formidable as he ever was. Sherryl Connelly, New York Daily News
Connelly's writing is like the best flavor of ice cream: reliably delicious every time. Jeff Ayers, Associated Press
Bosch has become one of the most popular and enduring figures in American crime fiction. Kevin Nance, Chicago Tribune
This is the finest crime series written by an American....There are few fictional characters we know so well; Harry is an old friend now. Patrick Anderson, Washington Post
“Harry Bosch tackles corrupt politicians, violent gangs, and a new partner in Connelly’s latest crime novel. The detectives run into roadblocks, both within the department and against outside forces. Bosch’s relationship with his daughter, Maddie, is ongoing while his retirement looms large. This excellent portrayal of police work at all levels is insightful and thorough.” RT Reviews (4 stars)
“Superb…Connelly serves his readers well with his encyclopedic knowledge and gifts as a storyteller.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Titus Welliver brings some formidable skills to the narration. His deep, resonant voice fits the atmosphere and the vocalization of Bosch, and his pacing makes the story accessible even for new listeners. A slightly raised pitch makes the female voices pleasant and believable, as do the subtle Mexican accents he gives several characters…This police procedural, as delivered by Welliver, will pull listeners deeply into the two cases.” AudioFile
“This is the finest crime series written by an American…There are few fictional characters we know so well; Harry is an old friend now.” Washington Post, praise for the series
“Bosch has become one of the most popular and enduring figures in American crime fiction.” Chicago Tribune, praise for the series
