Detective Harry Bosch and his new partner tackle a cold case unlike any other as they investigate a recent murder where the trigger was pulled ten years earlier. The blistering new thriller from international #1 bestselling author, Michael Connelly
Not many murder victims die a decade after the crime, so when Orlando Merced dies ten years after being shot, Bosch catches a case with a fresh body and virtually no evidence.
Partnered with rookie detective Lucia Soto, Bosch begins to see political dimensions to the case - a case where, despite the seemingly impossible odds, failure to find the killer is simply not an option.
But not only does Soto start showing signs of becoming a loose cannon, the one piece of evidence they have on the Merced shooting points in a shocking and unexpected direction that could unsettle the very people who want Bosch to close out the case.
It's looking like Orlando Merced may not be the investigation's only victim-and that includes Bosch himself.
