Synopsis:
When LAPD detective Harry Bosch shot and killed Norman Church, the police were convinced it marked the end of the search for one of the city's most bizarre serial killers. The manhunt for the 'Dollmaker', so called because he painted the faces of all his victims with make-up after death, was finally over. But four years later, Norman Church's widow is taking Bosch to court, accusing him of killing the wrong man. To make matters worse, Bosch has just received a note, eerily reminiscent of the ones the Dollmaker used to taunt him with, giving him a location where a body can be found. Is the Dollmaker still alive? Or is this the work of a vicious copycat killer, determined to repeat the Dollmaker's grisly feats and destroy Bosch's career in the process? As he battles to clear his name in court, Bosch faces a desperate race against time to find the killer.

Review:
"Masterfully Entertaining." --Houston Chronicle
They called him the Dollmaker-the serial killer who stalked Los Angeles and left a grisly calling card on the faces of his female victims. With a single faultless shot, Detective Harry Bosch thought he had ended the city's nightmare...

"Gritty." --San Diego Union-Tribune
But then the dead man's widow sues Harry and the LAPD for killing the wrong man-an accusation that rings terrifyingly true when a new victim is discovered with the Dollmaker's macabre signature...

"Outstanding...Can't Be Put Down." --Kansas City Star
Now, for the second time, Harry must hunt down a death-dealer who is very much alive, before he strikes again. It's a blood-tracked quest that will take Harry from the hard edges of the L.A. night to the last place he ever wanted to go-the darkness of his own heart.

"Crackling authenticity." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Turbo-charged...a darkly gripping tale." --Kirkus Reviews

Review:
The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.
