Publisher's Summary

When the bones of a boy are found scattered in the Hollywood Hills, Harry Bosch is drawn into a case that brings up dark memories from his past. Unearthing hidden stories, he finds the child's identity and reconstructs his fractured life, determined that he won't be forgotten.

At the same time, a new love affair with a female cop begins to blossom - until a stunningly blown mission leaves him in more trouble than ever before. The investigation races to a shocking conclusion and leaves Bosch on the brink of an unimaginable decision...

Another good Bosch story with a twist at the end

Would you listen to City of Bones again? Why?

No. I now know who dun it.

What did you like best about this story?

Further developed the character of Harry Bosch. Michael Connelly likes to add the twist at the end to stop you guessing who the murderer is.

What does Peter Jay Fernandez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I liked that Peter Jay Fernandez gave Harry Bosch a regular voice after the prior few books in the series portrayed Harry with a really annoying gravelly voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but its too long to actually listen to in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Random bursts of overly dramatic music seem to appear from nowhere every now and then, when there is not regular music in the recording. This is very annoying!

Pretty weak

A rather weak story line, attempted to be bolstered by a lame and unnecessary love interest (more so than previous books. Why do these types of stories feel compelled to always chuck in a lame love/romance/sex story; they’d be better served without it). Narration makes Bosch and his partner sound like little boys rather than hard boiled detectives. Then again, after Dick Hill, no narrator could ever live up to his greatness. I still hold hope for the rest of the series so will crack on and assume this was just an anomaly in an otherwise great series.

Good story

narrator did not really fit the Harry Bosch style. Although I liked the story, a different narrator would have given it more punch.

A very solid outing for Bosch

Not as good as the last but the narration is much better and story of who is just as good as well.

Wrong Narrator

Once again the narrator doesn't sound like Bosch or Edgar...so disappointing. Please bring back Dick Hill!!!
