Rated 2 out of 5 by from An Okay Read My first Kobo purchase and an okay read. Not sure I liked the ending, it seemed to just stop before it was done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo Park The character of Harry Bosch is, in my opinion, one the most realistic and relatable to the reader of any series that I have read. Just like the unforgettable Travis McGee in John D. MacDonald's series of books (Mr. MacDonald, a legendary mystery writer in his own right), Connelly has created a character that the reader identifies with. Combined with story lines that are unpredictable and engaging the result is a standard of excellence that few can and do achieve. Thank you! Michele (Syms)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not his best, but still very good I was actually able to figure out the ending before the very end, despite several twists and turns - which is unusual for me. Entertaining and good character growth for Bosch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4.5 out of 5 Stars Michael Connelly is a great writer and his Harry Bosch series is well written and suspenseful. Although, I have to admit that this book was probably closer to a 4.5 out of 5 stars because I predicted the twist in the end because of some of the clues Connelly through out there along the way. Without ruining the story for anyone, we find Harry Bosch in a position to wrap up a cold case by listening to the confession of an already incarcerated serial killer. The catch of course is that Harry doesn't believe the slimeball murderer, and points to reasons why he shouldn't be trusted. Harry doggedly scrapes away for the truth, and finds that he is being used more than he thinks by the real evil doers. Great action, good twists and the Harry Bosch wit we have come to love make this a great addition to the series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bosch, a great all too human detetctive Harry Bosch, an L.A. police detective, in the Open/Unsolved Unit has a case on his desk from 1993. It involves the killing of Marie Gesto, who disappeared from a supermarket. Bosch gets a call from the D.A. requesting Bosch to interview the killer, Raynard Waits who has just confessed. According to Waits, he is responsible for the death of Marie Gesto. Bosch had investigated this case, and it is still unsolved. No body was ever found. Waits has made a deal with the DA: he’ll confess in exchange for life in prison rather than death. Waites is willing to lead the police to the body. Waites leads them to the body but escapes. Bosch follows the leads even after he is sent home. Rachel Walling is back with help for Bosch and as a love interest. A great story with Bosch questioning his own investigation and what he could have missed back in 1993. Bosch is so vulnerable when it comes to his women. He never seems to have them last for long as either a colleague or a romantic interest. I think I like Bosch so much because of his foibles, just like us ordinary folk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Bosch does it again! Harry Bosch is one of my favorite fictional characters and any book Michael Connelly writes with Bosch in it holds my attention perfectly. I have ADHD and getting me to sit down to read a book is hard, it has to have a good flow and this book definitely does. Connelly keeps you on your toes until the end and holds my attention (in my opinion it's very hard to do!) Story line is great, characters are perfect and the end will make you gasp. Once you think the mystery of Merrie Gesto is solved it's not. I think that is why this book held my attention and I actually had a hard time putting it down, because when you think the book is over and the rest is just filler a whole new side of the mystery holds up. My hat's off to you Mr. Connelly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from never ending action In my opinion this author is one of the best thriller writers of today. The novel illustrates the complexity of his writing. The characters are well drawn and have personality. Harry Bosch reckless behaviour is well presented you tend to develop sympathy for his bosses…The plot has never ending action leaving you wondering what will come up next. This book is a fast pace read that will keep you turning page after page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bosch Keeps Getting Better Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch novels are all good -- plotting, characterization, and suspense -- but they're better than good with their current focus on the "cold case" files of Los Angeles P.D. Echo Park kept me up until I finished it at 3:00 a.m. -- and then I had to start a less gripping novel anyway just to get to sleep!
