From the Publisher
He walked away from the job three years ago. But Harry Bosch cannot resist the call to join the elite Open/Unsolved Unit. His mission: solve murders whose investigations were flawed, stalled, or abandoned to L.A.'s tides of crime. With some people openly rooting for his failure, Harry catches the case of a teenager dragged off to her death on Oat Mountain, and traces the DNA on the murder weapon to a small-time criminal.But something bigger and darker beckons, and Harry must battle to fit all the pieces together. Shaking cages and rattling ghosts, he will push the rules to the limit-and expose the kind of truth that shatters lives, ends careers, and keeps the dead whispering in the night...

Harry Bosch is back again with the LAPD after a very short retirement. He is assigned to the elite Open/Unsolved Unit(cold cases) and back with a former partner, Kiz Rider. He has a boss he can actually respect and all is right in the world for awhile.

Harry works on a 17 year old case of a teenager pulled from her house and shot. There was tissue found on the murder weapon in which the DNA can now be used. Harry does all the leg work and interviews while Kiz does the technological work, digging through the internet and finding people.

When the murder book is not all there Harry's nemesis, former Chief Irving is back on his case or are the tables turned this time?

A great mystery with all the twists a reader would want. Harry is in the best place of all and the reader is right there along for the ride

Detective Harry Bosch is back on the force after almost three years of retirement. When he returns, he's put with his old partner Kiz Rider and the two become part of the Open Unsolved unit. Bosch and Rider are lucky because one of the cases they have been assigned just came back with DNA analysis. The murder happened back in 1988, before DNA analysis was common, and in a racially-charged era. Bosch and Rider have to familiarize themselves with the case, start hunting down the leads, and figure out who the murderer was to bring them to justice.

Even though there was only one book with Harry retired and off the force, I enjoy him as part of the police much more. There's interaction with him and a partner or boss which adds to the story line. He also seems able to accomplish more when he's part of the force. From the start of this book, I could feel Bosch's excitement to figure out the puzzle of an already existing case. Like all of Connelly's other Bosch books, this one grips you from the start and you can't wait to find out who the murderer is.
