Publisher Description

THE WORLDWIDE #1 BESTSELLER BEHIND AMAZON PRIME'S BOSCH AND NETFLIX'S THE LINCOLN LAWYER

SOME CRIMES YOU CAN'T FORGET.
Detective Renée Ballard is given the chance of a lifetime: revive the LAPD's cold case unit and find justice for the families of the forgotten. The only catch is they must first crack the unsolved murder of the sister of the city councilman who is sponsoring the department - or lose everything...

OTHERS YOU CAN'T FORGIVE.
Harry Bosch is top of the list of investigators Ballard wants to recruit. The former homicide detective is a living legend - but for how long? Because Bosch has his own agenda: a crime that has haunted him for years - the murder of a whole family, buried out in the desert - which he vowed to close.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU KNEW WHO DID IT?
With the killer still out there and evidence elusive - Bosch is on a collision course with a choice he hoped never to make...

Superb

Absolutely amazing book by my favourite author Michael Connelly.

This is a classic Bosch novel enhanced by the continuing presence of Renee Ballard. The story is strong, the writing is powerful and overall it’s so good and so in keeping with the ongoing saga of Harry Bosch (Old Man).

If you read Michael Connelly then you are bound to read this book and enjoy it, if you’re new to Bosch then it can be read as a stand-alone but I think it’s much better to know what Bosch is all about first to get the best of out this book.

My advice is buy it, read it, love it, I did.

Oh Bosch !

Just excellent, a gripping read with an ending to bring on a tear - or three.
Long may Bosch, in particular, continue, he has been a constant in my life for many years.
Thank you

This can’t be the end?

Read this in one take and loved it. Great story lines and twists as befits MC style. Can’t believe we are that close to it all ending though. Ballard is good and we need to see her back, battling the bureaucracy and using her smarts to win out. Bosch is irreplaceable though.
