Publisher's Summary

Terry McCaleb's enforced quiet lifestyle on the island of Catalina is a far cry from the hectic excitement of his former role as an FBI profiler. However when small-time criminal Edward Gunn is found dead, McCaleb becomes embroiled in a disturbing and complex case leading him to cross the path of Harry Bosch.

This infamous detective has always teetered on the brink of darkness in order to get inside the head of the killer. Is it possible he has stepped across that finely drawn line and embraced darkness?

Im enjoying the Terry McCaleb series and the Harry

I'm enjoying the Terry McCaleb series and the Harry Bosch overlap added even more gravity to the investigation as a serial killer almost succeeds in framing Bosch for his crimes. As we've come to expect from Michael Connelly, the book is well crafted with good character and plot development and enough twists and turns to keep the pages turning ata steady pace. A top tier effort in my library.

Not really a Bosch story

It really is a McCalab story featuring Harry Bosch, but enjoyable and with some action; the solution came too quickly to what I’m used to with Harry Bosch, not very complicated

Not a fan of the performance

Having listened to the forerunning Bosch books narrated by Dick Hill it was difficult to adjust to harry Bosch with a completely different voice and character. Also a different narrator to blood work (terry macaleb). I nearly gave up on the book many times.

Simple story.....missing Bosch interaction

I enjoyed this storyline but it was lacking Bosch....Narration was fine except for Harry's voice. It was irritating and distracting. He sounded like an old drunk cowboy.

Good book but not as good as previous on in series

Good book but not as good as previous one in the series Angels Flight.
I also preferred the narrator in Angels Flight
I've only just just started reading Harry Bosch books & so far enjoying them.

Excellent... again!

Any additional comments?

Having just finished the first book in this series and bought this second book straight away, it's probably not a surprise that I enjoyed it just as much. Just such a shame there aren't more in the series... yet?

Not as gripping as the preceding books but still great

Michael Connolly writes great crime novels, this is no exception. I found it not to be quite as gripping as those preceding it but enjoyed it all the same.
The narration was good if slightly monotone at times. If you live the Harry Bosch novels you will love this but if you are considering this as a way into the series definitely start at the beginning.

Not one of his best, just OK

Narrator is not the voice of Bosch. Style of this book is good but tale's a bit weak by author's many other efforts - may be a better read than listen.

Top notch thriller.

Hard to fault. A darker side to Bosch. Can't wait for the next instalment of the series.

Terrible narrating. <br /><br />

Really good story as always but the narrator was terrible. He made Harry Bosch sound like an octogenarian with speech problems instead of a detective with a sharp mind.

Just a great read/listen

My seventh Bosch and just as enjoyable as the first.
This book sees a switch in story telling from Bosch’s perspective to a retired FBI profiler who wrongly puts Bosch in the frame. When he’s pushed aside by the investigators, Bosch tells him he’s flat out wrong and puts him on the case to clear him. Another hit.

Narrator sucks

This book REALLY needs to be re read by Titus Welliver. I have all but one or two of Michael Connellys books on audio, and this is by far the worst due to the narrator.

The first book was better

I enjoyed the book but it didn’t grip me like the first one
I think Terry is over taxing his new heart.
I think he is jeopardising his marriage if he continues to get involved in profiling.
He has a second chance all round .
He needs to treasure what he has.
