9780316734950: Echo Park (Harry Bosch)

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 which could have led them to Waits and would have stopped the nine murders that followed the killing of Marie Gesto...

Product Description:

In 1993 Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the twenty-two-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the District Attorney.A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto. Taking the confession of the man he has sought-and hated-for thirteen years is bad enough. Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

Review:

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)

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)

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)

This is Connelly doing what he does best: delivering a beautifully structured, richly atmospheric crime novel ( THE EXPRESS)

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. (Susanna Yager SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

...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)

This is Connelly doing what he does best: delivering a beautifully structured, richly atmospheric crime novel. (Barry Forshaw EXPRESS)

This is a skilfully structured, richly atmospheric addition to the series. (Jessica Mann LITERARY REVIEW)

'This is LA Noir brought up to date. ... Connelly, the best in the hard-boiled business right now, sets the whole thing up slowly and magnificently until it explodes.' (Allan Laing THE HERALD)

Superb writing and story as usual from Connelly, who grows in strength with each new book. (Vincent Banville IRISH TIMES)
