Review
  • 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.

  • No matter how much critics and readers love him, Connelly's Harry Bosch is definitely a downer. To catch the spirit of the popular series without sending listeners leaping out of their windows requires an unusually talented reader, who can take the tiny shreds of light the author sprinkles very sparingly through his dark and bloody outings and turn them into veritable bonfires. Fortunately, Cariou is a veteran of four previous Bosch audios who knows his man down to his obsessive socks. Cariou can also do Connelly's normal, only semidepressed supporting characters with grace and depth: Harry's female partner, other cops with mixed motives, crooked lawyers, on-the-make politicians, even a convicted serial killer trying to escape the death penalty by reopening one of Bosch's old wounds. Cariou, of course, can't remove Harry's guilt or ease his obsessions: he's an actor, not a therapist. But his talent adds a Prozac-like sense of ease not to be taken lightly. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Sept. 4). (Nov.) --Staff (Reviewed January 29, 2007) (Publishers Weekly, vol 254, issue 5, p66)
