When a dog unearths evidence of a murder in the Hollywood Hills, Detective Harry Bosch must tackle a cold case that sparks memories he's tried to forget.
On New Year's Day, a dog finds a bone in the Hollywood Hills -- and unearths a murder committed more than twenty years earlier. It's a cold case, but for Detective Harry Bosch, it stirs up memories of his childhood as an orphan. He can't let it go. As the investigation takes Bosch deeper into the past, a beautiful rookie cop brings him alive in the present. No official warning can break them apart -- or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a few hard turns. Suddenly all of L.A. is in an uproar, and Bosch, fighting to keep control, is driven to the brink of an unimaginable decision.


  • Good read

    By Doug Reno
    Very enjoyable beginning to end.
  • The best crime series out there

    By TigersJC86
    There’s just something so real about the Bosch series. It’s no holds barred and scary we live in a world like this at times. The character is both relatable for his humanity and also not relatable because of his never ending pursuit for justice in most ways we don’t understand. It’s a marvelous series.

    This one is gripping and I feel very sad for Harry for what he had been through. No wonder he had made that decision in the end. I'm so excited for the next book and see how he would come back.
  • Best yet!
