Publisher's Summary

An LAPD homicide detective must choose between justice and vengeance as he teams up with the FBI in the first novel of the "thrilling" Harry Bosch series (New York Times Book Review).

For maverick LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal...because the murdered man was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who had fought side by side with him in a hellish underground war. Now Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit. Pitted against enemies inside his own department and forced to make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, Bosch goes on the hunt for a killer whose true face will shock him.

Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

Excellent!

This was my first Harry Bosch story and I really enjoyed both the story and the narration. The story gave a good insight into policing in the 70's and the narrator was so good I felt like I was watching it on TV rather than listening to it being read. I'm looking forward to listening to more in the series.

Awesome narration

This book was great! The narration was perfect. Maybe a female narrator to do the female part though?

A very good story

A great story, very well narrated. Having watched the TV series, Bosch, it felt like the characters of the tv series were talking to me. Thoroughly enjoyable.

My first disappointment

As expected, an excellent story from Michael Connelly.
Pity the narrator gave Eleanor Wish such a dreadful, silly voice. Ruined it for me

Just a great series

Love the Harry Bosch series with all the books ranging from 3.8 stars to 5 stars. As a general rule the best books were in the first half of the series. However, I still enjoy the new books when they come out.
