I was in the market to listen to some crime fiction and someone recommended the Michael Connelly / Harry Bosch series saying I should start with 'The Last Coyote'. Well, now I'm hooked. The prose is economical and not over-blown and the stories are compelling making it very hard to take my headphones out and do anything else with my life other than listen to Harry Bosch titles. The narration brings the characters alive and breathes life into the growl and grit that you would expect from 'hard-bitten' cops. I would, however, start at the beginning with 'Black Echo' rather than jumping in at Book 4, you won't be sorry.

Michael Connelly is one one of my favourite authors for dull running sessions. I know, it sound harsh but that is how I feel it. I started to listen to his great Lincoln Lawyer stories first in the past and found them a bit predictable but still very enjoying. When I finished with the last one I really struggled to start with the Harry Bosh series as it sounded as Mrs. Marple compared to Poirot to me. How wrong I was! Harry Bosh caught me even more and I have been enjoying his series since.
This story looks very straight forward and easy to guess but everything is completely otherwise at the end. I kept listening even when not running which is really not good for me - I have to buy another one much easier :o)
I must say, Connellys's stories are not the most difficult ones to get a clue but very easy to absorb and enjoyable. I really love them. And Dick Hill's narrating is just great!

The Last Coyote fills in some of LA Detective Harry Bosch's history. Fans of Michael Connelly's relentless Detective know that he is the orphaned son of a LA prostitute who was killed in the early 1960's and the crime was never cleared. In this book, Bosch finally decides that he cannot let the crime go unsolved and, he finds, unvestigated any longer and begins his own private investigation, an adventure that once again gets Harry Bosch crosswise with the LA Police Department. The book has all the plot twists and turns that readers expect from Connelly and keeps the readers interest until the final page. I have read 12 of the books in the Bosch series and have read them in a random order. Wherever you are in your travels through Bosch's life, this book will fit.

This was a very good Harry Bosch book.I am listening to them in order and I have to say that it was nice to get a glimspe into Harry's past. This book really makes you feel like you know and understand Harry a little better as a character. Worth listening to!
