LAPD Detective Harry Bosch seeks justice for the forgotten in this original
short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael

An anonymous tip puts Bosch on a case that has remained
unsolved for decades, the vicious stabbing of a teenage boy whose body was found
in an abandoned Old Hollywood restaurant.

Cold cases are often the
toughest: With no body, no murder scene, and no fingerprints, Bosch nevertheless
gets lucky when DNA evidence from the murder weapon points to a known killer.
But the DA insists that science alone is not enough – he needs the case to be
bulletproof before he’ll take it to court.

Determined to speak for those
who can no longer speak for themselves, Bosch has one chance to wrench a
confession out of a cold-blooded killer, or risk letting him walk free for

In this gripping, never-before-published story by “master of the
crime thriller” (Huffington Post) Michael Connelly, Detective Harry Bosch
quenches his thirst for justice and shows why he is “one of the most popular and
enduring figures in American crime fiction” (Chicago Tribune).

Review –

This is an orginal story by Michael Connelly in E-book and audio form only.  I had the audio version and I was totally let down at the end. I knew it was a short story ( 50 minutes, give or take) but I at least thought that it would END but it left me hanging. This makes me think the author is using it as a vehicle to another full length novel and that’s fine but tell the readers if that is the case.  If not, why not add ten more minutes to the story and give it a final ending?
