Audiobook Review

By: Michael Connelly
Series: Harry Bosch Audiobooks, book 11
Narrated by: Len Cariou
Length: 12 hours and 13 minutes

Oh, how I loved this story! I finished it in two road trip sessions and was thrilled that I had no distractions because the details mattered.

The Closers Audiobook Free is one of Connelly’s better installments in the Harry Bosch series as the writing is succinct, the plotting cohesive and the characterization unburdened by the excessive personal angst that bogs down some of the other stories.

Connelly was nimble in his writing, not wasting many words in character development, clues and descriptions. The mystery was challenging and hooked me from the beginning. While my initial guess was right, I abandoned it for more compelling suppositions. The ending was so delicious and I NEVER saw one aspect of it coming but it was brilliant. Len Cariou’s narration was pitch perfect. Can you tell I loved this book?

Here’s hoping Bosch continues to have a future with the LAPD, especially in this new unit under competent leadership for a change and with a great partner.

Plot Summary

After three years out of the LAPD, Harry Bosch returns to find the department a different place from the one he left. A new police chief has been brought in from New York to give the place a thorough clean up from top to bottom. Working with his former partner, Kiz Rider, Harry is assigned to the department s Open-Unsolved Unit, working on the thousands of cold cases that haunt the LAPD s files. These detectives are the Closers. They put a shovel in the dirt and turn over the past. By applying new techniques to old evidence they aim to unearth some hidden killers and bring them to justice, for a city that forgets its murder victims is a city lost.

Harry and Kiz are given a politically sensitive case when a DNA match connects a white supremacist to the 1988 murder of Rebecca Verloren, a sixteen-year-old girl. Becky was of mixed race, and the case appears to have a racial angle. This was LA before the riots and Rodney King, when the city was a powder keg waiting for a match. The detectives who worked the case all those years ago seem to have done a decent job, but something doesn’t fit.

Meanwhile Harry s nemesis, Deputy Chief Irving, is watching him. In the new clean LAPD Irving has been sidelined to a meaningless job. Compelled by vengeance, he hopes Harry will make a slip.
