Publisher's Summary

Harry attacked his commanding officer and is suspended indefinitely, pending a psychiatric evaluation. At first he resists the LAPD shrink, but finally recognizes that something is troubling him and has for a long time. In 1961, when Harry was 12, his mother, a prostitute, was brutally murdered with no one ever accused of the crime. With the spare time a suspension brings, Harry opens up the 30-year-old file on the case and is irresistibly drawn into a past he has always avoided. It's clear that the case was fumbled and the smell of a cover-up is unmistakable. Someone powerful was able to divert justice and Harry vows to uncover the truth. As he relentlessly follows the broken pieces of the case, the stirred interest causes new murders and pushes Harry to the edge of his job...and his life.


What the Critics Say

"Grabs you and shakes you-and it feels great." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"A powerful book." ( Houston Chronicle)
"Connelly is at the top of his form in this brilliant mystery. Dick Hill does an outstanding job capturing Bosch's cynicism and anger, confusion and hurt. Hill changes his voice well to portray the other characters, most notably the female police psychiatrist...this is a first-rate production." ( AudioFile)

Last Coyote; first of many

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.

My favourite author for running sessions

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!
