Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In 1993 Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the twenty-two-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the District Attorney.A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto. Taking the confession of the man he has sought-and hated-for thirteen years is bad enough. Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

About the author

Biography of Connelly, Michael

Michael Connelly graduated from the University of Florida in 1980 where he majored in journalism and minored in creative writing. After graduation, he worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specializing in the crime beat.

His first novel, The Black Echo, was published in 1992 and won the Edgar Award for best first novel by the Mystery Writers of America. His other works include The Black Ice; The Concrete Blonde; The Last Coyote; The Poet; Blood Work; Angels Flight; Void Moon, and The Lincoln Lawyer.

He writes the Harry Bosch series and the Jack McEvoy series. He has won numerous awards including the Anthony Award, Macavity Award, Shamus Award, Dilys Award, Nero Award, Barry Award, Ridley Award, Maltese Falcon Award (Japan),. 38 Caliber Award (France), Grand Prix Award (France), Premio Bancarella Award (Italy), and the Pepe Carvalho Award (Spain).

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2006-10-15)

Harry Bosch, still working for the Open Unsolved (cold cases) Unit, is brought into a new scenario. The killer in question claims to be responsible for a number of older cases, including one that centered on the disappearance of a woman whose body was never found. Bosch, still haunted by those circumstances, has been hounding another man he thinks is responsible. As he and partner Kiz Rider are pulled further into the prosecution of the alleged killer, Bosch learns that nothing is as it seems.

Sidelined from the case after an incident, he teams up with FBI agent Rachel Walling (first introduced in The Poet) and continues to investigate. Connelly offers strong action writing and exciting plot twists, coupled with more development of Bosch's character and his internal conflicts. Another excellent and riveting entry in the longstanding series by one of mystery fiction's best writers.

Review by Library Journal (2006-06-15)

After an accused serial killer confesses to a long-ago murder that Harry Bosch couldn't crack, Harry realizes he missed a vital clue that might have put the man behind bars and saved lives. Not a good feeling. With a seven-city tour.
