Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective Renée Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor, the man who trained him---new from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly
Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, John Jack Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow gives Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before -- the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals.
Bosch brings the murder book to Renée Ballard and asks her to help him find what about the case lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. That will be their starting point.
The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigative team. And they soon arrive at a worrying question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?

Titus Welliver does breath life into Bosch on the TV show and he has the perfect voice on the Bosch audiobooks. While the story is great I would like to have heard more quotes from Tim Farmer who seemed to have fascinated Renee Ballard. It stated in the last book the he committed suicide because he reached the age where he had to transfer to a desk and he loved patrolling the streets - better and more accurate scenario than this book which states he couldn't take the action on the streets anymore. Keep it up Titus - don't share Bosch's voice:}
Just Titus please!
The storyline is great and Harry Bosch is a favorite character but the female narrator nearly ruined this book for me. She pronounced many words incorrectly, such as Van Nuys!! Awkward and not in tune compared to Welliver’s perfect voice, timing and inflections.
