Publisher Description

In this original short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch seeks justice for the forgotten

NOTE: This file includes a preview of Michael Connelly's novel The Crossing.

In "Switchblade," an anonymous tip puts Bosch on a case that has remained unsolved for decades, the vicious stabbing of a teenage boy whose body was found in an abandoned Old Hollywood restaurant.

Cold cases are often the toughest: With no body, no murder scene, and no fingerprints, Bosch nevertheless gets lucky when DNA evidence from the murder weapon points to a known killer. But the DA insists that science alone is not enough - he needs the case to be bulletproof before he'll take it to court.

Determined to speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves, Bosch has one chance to wrench a confession out of a cold-blooded killer, or risk letting him walk free for good.

In this gripping, never-before-published story by "master of the crime thriller" (Huffington Post) Michael Connelly, Detective Harry Bosch quenches his thirst for justice and shows why he is "one of the most popular and enduring figures in American crime fiction" (Chicago Tribune).

Good story but I felt like it ended abruptly. Way shorter than I thought it was when it paid for it. Story is 4 stars, price is 1-2 stars

A Good Short Story

I enjoy short stories and that’s exactly what this is - a short story. If you enjoy authors like Jeffrey Archer you’ll understand this short story. It’s not a novel and you should not read it as a chapter of a novel - it’s a short story. Try it - you may like it.

Weak & disappointing

I am a long time Connelly fan. This is 32 pages of practically no story, and 60 preview pages of 'the gods of guilt'.
