In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket in Hollywood. Fearing the worst, the case was elevated by LAPD commanders from the missing persons squad to the Homicide Division, where Harry Bosch was assigned the case. But Bosch couldn t crack the case and the twenty-two-year-old woman never turned up, dead or alive.
Thirteen years later Bosch is in the Open-Unsolved Unit when he gets a call from the DA s office. A man accused of two heinous killings is willing to come clean in regard to several other murders in a deal to avoid the death penalty. One of those murders, he says, is the killing of Marie Gesto. Bosch is now assigned to take Raynard Waits confession and to make sure the killer is not scamming authorities to avoid a date with death.
In confirming the confession Bosch must get close to the man he has sought for thirteen years. Bosch s whole being as a cop begins to crack when he comes to realize that he and his partner missed a clue back in 1993 that could have led them to Waits and would have stopped the nine murders that followed the killing of Marie Gesto.

Michael Connelly is a former journalist and has won every major prize for crime fiction. He lives in Florida.From AudioFile:
LAPD Detective Bosch confronts inner demons, childhood memories, police corruption, and a serial killer who may be connected to a cold case that has haunted him for thirteen years. Bosch's knowledge of the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles is key to finding the killer. Len Cariou's pitch- perfect performance is understated yet expressive. His tone, pacing, and characterization capture the inner turmoil of the detective and the grittiness of the corrupt environment in which he operates. The abridgment never seems choppy or incomplete. And those new to the series will be drawn in without missing a beat. Connelly writes a compelling story with a strong sense of place, and Cariou delivers it with style.
