Description

In 1993, Harry Bosch was assigned the case of a missing person, Marie Gesto. The young woman was never found - dead or alive - and the case has haunted Bosch ever since.Thirteen years later, Bosch is in the Open Unsolved Unit, where he still keeps the Gesto file on his desk, 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. In confirming the confession Bosch must get close to the man he has sought - and hated - for thirteen years. Bosch's whole being as a cop begins to crack when he comes to realise 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...show more

Review quote

Connelly specialises in taut plots, beautifully constructed, full of missable clues and surprising switchbacks. This is a virtuso effort. -- Catherine Shoard * THE SCOTSMAN * Michael Connelly writes remarkably pure police procedurals ... he specialises in taut plots, beautifully constructed, full of missable clues and surprising switchbacks. Echo Park is a virtuoso performance. ... there are bent politicians and lawyers at work: Bosch is headed down a tunnel. Impossible not to follow.' -- David Sexton * EVENING STANDARD & LONDON LITE * This is Connelly doing what he does best: delivering a beautifully structured, richly atmospheric crime novel * THE EXPRESS * Admirers of Connelly's Bosch novels will know that his depiction of his dedicated hero always has the ring of authenticity. And, amid the excitements of his vertiginous plot, Connelly takes the time to consider whether Harry's determination to get his man is worth the sacrifices he makes * DAILY TELEGRAPH * Connelly has produced another blindingly good plot which, mixed with spellbinding action, takes us deep into a corrupt world. Not for the first time do we discover that there is a very fine line indeed between criminals and the police. This is crime thriller writing of the highest order * GUARDIAN * Connelly's plots are never straightforward, and he keeps us guessing until the exciting and bitter conclusion to this latest episode in a splendid series * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *show more
