In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent.
Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Starting with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveals that this shooting may have been anything but random.

Read by Titus Welliver, star of the Bosch TV series.

A let down

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No , Titus Welliver delivered it in a monotone boring voice - it would put you to sleep

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I returned the book before the end , Ill buy the paper version and finish it rather than listen to Titus

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Titus Welliver?

What would have made The Burning Room better?

I love this series. I have listened to them all over and over. I don't think I'll listen to this one again. The narrator puts me to sleep. He doesn't make the story interesting at all. As an actor great as a narrator rubbish. I found the flat tone very difficult to listen too. Why wasn't this narrated by the usual people. Big mistake. It should be re done!

Would you recommend The Burning Room to your friends? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who loves the previous narrators. I would recommend reading rather than listening.

Would you be willing to try another one of Titus Welliver’s performances?

I wouldn't be willing to listen to this narrator again. His voice is to flat and doesn't get me interested in the story just puts me to sleep.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

This book left me disappointed. No even sure if I enjoyed the story or even if I heard all of it I kept falling asleep.

Any additional comments?

Please release this book again with one of the narrators you used for Harry before.

Go Harry

Loved it. Looking forward to the next adventure. Harry is such an interesting character who develops through the series.

A good reading, but Bosch stories are aging...

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, one can find the strengths of Connelly’s books (and of the Harry Bosh saga): a linear story, a very solid and credible plot, characters well depicted and a catchy Los Angeles providing as usual a great background to the action. However, somehow the book is not engaging as most of the Bosh stories used to be. May be is Bosh that has aged: from the passionate, intense, almost dark hero that used to be, Harry is now a grumpy, a bit cynical cop flirting with (and fighting) retirement. Glimpses into his private life –that should provide pauses and contrast to the thriller plot- are frankly boring: he is a worrying father to a teenage girl without really other interest or relationship. This is emblematic of the lost charisma of Bosh and a key to understand why this book is less engaging than the first ones of the series. I must however say that, in relative terms, is by far not the worse book that Connelly has recently written. In fact, in absolute terms, the book is overall a good experience and had no problems in keeping up through the (good) end.
