In 1993 Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the twenty-two-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the District Attorney.A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto. Taking the confession of the man he has sought-and hated-for thirteen years is bad enough. Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

Michael Connelly is a former journalist and has won every major prize for crime fiction. He lives in Florida.From AudioFile:
In his twelfth Harry Bosch mystery, Michael Connelly crafts a deeply disturbing look into the dark souls of serial killers. Harry is out of retirement, working the LAPD Open-Unsolved Unit. One cold case in particular gives Harry nightmares--the disappearance of Marie Gesto in 1993. Harry and his then partner, Jerry Edgar, failed to follow up on a lead, and now, thirteen years later, new evidence about the case appears. Len Cariou narrates with quiet certainty. He develops the flawed, complex Harry subtly, leaving no doubt about Harry's obsessive nature or his sense of guilt over the case. Connelly's writing offers no-nonsense plots, tightly compressed descriptions, and crisp dialogue, and Cariou keeps it all low-key, understated, and effective.
