Echo park (Unabridged) audiobook

May 25, 2008


In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket in Hollywood. LAPD detective Harry Bosch caught the case, but the young woman never turned up, dead or alive, and it was an investigation Bosch couldn’t close. Now Bosch works in the Open-Unsolved Unit, where he still keeps the Gesto file on his desk, when he gets a call from the DA. A man accused of two heinous killings is willing to come clean about several others in a deal to avoid the death penalty. One of these is the murder of Marie Gesto.

Bosch is now tasked with taking the alleged killer’s confession to make sure he is not scamming the authorities to avoid a date with death. In doing so, Bosch must get close to a man he has sought – and hated – for thirteen years. When Bosch learns that he and his partner missed a clue back in 1993 that could have led them to Gesto’s killer – and that would have prevented all the murders that followed – his whole being as a cop begins to crack.

Michael Connelly’s enthralling new book pits the detective People magazine calls “one of the most complex crime fighters around” against the most brilliant and sadistic killer he has ever confronted. And it proves once again that “in suspense… Connelly has

no superiors” (Washington Post).
