Connelly is a graduate of the University of Florida, where he earned a bachelors degree in journalism. In addition to his books, Connelly has written for television.From AudioFile:
This is a police procedural, even though the protagonist, Harry Bosch, is an ex-cop. Bosch sets out to solve a four- year-old robbery and murder, and learns that an FBI agent who worked on the robbery investigation vanished in the midst of it and hasn't been seen since. Bosch gets seriously on the wrong side of the FBI, complicating an already complicated inquiry. Len Cariou keeps the listener completely involved. His nuanced, well-paced reading draws one into the action, not letting us sit back as passive listeners. And his Harry Bosch is entirely believable--tired, a bit jaded, yet fiercely on the case.
