Summary

A finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize A New York Times Book Review Best Crime Novel of the Year A CrimeReads Best Crime Novel Notable Selection   Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective Renee Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor, the man who trained him - new from number one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly. Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, John Jack Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow hands Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before - the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals. Bosch brings the murder book to Renée Ballard and asks her to help him find what about the case lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. As she begins her inquiries - while still working her own cases on the midnight shift - Ballad finds aspects of the initial investigation that just don't add up.  The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a disturbing question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?  Written with the intense pacing and masterful suspense that have made Michael Connelly "the hard-boiled fiction master of our time" (NPR), The Night Fire continues the unofficial partnership of two fierce detectives determined not to let the fire burn out.

Back on the job after an involuntary leave of absence, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch is ready for a challenge - but a murderous Las Vegas crime ring might prove to be more than he bargained for. It starts with the body of a Hollywood producer in the trunk of a Rolls-Royce, shot twice in the head at close range - what looks like "trunk music", a Mafia hit. But the LAPD's organized crime unit is curiously uninterested, and when Harry follows a trail of gambling debts to Las Vegas, the case suddenly becomes more complex - and much more personal.  A rekindled romance with an old girlfriend opens new perspectives on the murder, and he begins to glimpse a shocking triangle of corruption and collusion. Yanked off the case, Harry himself is soon the one being investigated. But only a bullet can stop Harry when he's searching for the truth.

Summary

On New Year's Day, Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch fields a call that a dog has found a bone - a bone that the dog's owner, a doctor, feels certain is human. That chance discovery leads Bosch to a shallow grave in the Hollywood hills, evidence of a murder committed more than 20 years earlier. It's a cold case, but it stirs up Bosch's memories of his own childhood as an orphan in the city. Digging through police reports and hospital records, tracking down street kids and runaways from the 1970s, Bosch finds a family ripped apart by an absence - and a trail, ever more tenuous, into a violent, terrifying world. As the case takes Bosch deeper into the past, a rookie cop named Julia Brasher brings him alive in the present in a way no one has in years. Bosch has been warned about the trouble that comes with dating a rookie, but no warning could withstand the heat between them - or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a hard turn. Drawing on the "precision-tooled twists" and "wellspring of authentically lurid detail" (Los Angeles Magazine) that have made him one of the fasted-selling novelists at work today, Michael Connelly has written a riveting, hard-edged, and unforgettable thriller.

Detective Harry Bosch was sure he'd shot the serial killer responsible for a string of murders in LA...but now, a new crime makes him question his convictions. The Dollmaker was the name of the serial killer who had stalked Los Angeles ruthlessly, leaving grisly calling cards on the faces of his female victims. Now with a single faultless shot, Detective Harry Bosch thinks he has ended the city's nightmare.

Summary

Only the money was real. Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. Bosch got off a shot that struck one of the robbers as their van sped away, but the money was never recovered. And the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD. Now Bosch moves full-bore back into that case, determined to find justice for the young woman. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear in the guilty, he learns afresh how brutally indifferent the world can be. But something draws him on, past humiliation and harassment. It's not just that the dead woman had no discernible link to the robbery. Nor is it his sympathy for the cops who took the case over, one of them killed on duty and the other paralyzed by a bullet in the same attack. With every conversation and every thread of evidence, Bosch senses a larger presence, an organization bigger than the movie studios and more ruthless than even the LAPD. The part of Bosch that will never back down finds as fatal an opponent as he's ever encountered - and there's no guarantee that Bosch will survive the showdown ahead.

Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together. Riveting and relentlessly paced, The Black Box leads Harry Bosch, "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News), into one of his most fraught and perilous cases.

This one is personal...because the murdered man was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who had fought side by side with him in a hellish underground war. Now Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit. Pitted against enemies inside his own department and forced to make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, Bosch goes on the hunt for a killer whose true face will shock him. "Michael Connelly is the master of the universe in which he lives, and that is the sphere of crime thrillers." - Huffington Post.

Summary

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch is off the chain in the fastest, fiercest, and highest-stakes case of his life. Fortune Liquors is a small shop in a tough South L.A. neighborhood, a store Bosch has known for years. The murder of John Li, the store's owner, hits Bosch hard, and he promises Li's family that he'll find the killer. The world Bosch steps into next is unknown territory. He brings in a detective from the Asian Gang Unit for help with translation - not just of languages but also of the cultural norms and expectations that guided Li's life. He uncovers a link to a Hong Kong triad, a lethal and far-reaching crime ring that follows many immigrants to their new lives in the U.S. And instantly his world explodes.  The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.

Summary

Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? The latter possibility could compromise all of the lab's DNA cases currently in court. Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics. Councilman Irvin Irving's son jumped or was pushed from a window at the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch's longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry handle the investigation. Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.

Summary

Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch is up to his neck in a case that has transfixed all of celebrity-mad Los Angeles: a movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. Bosch is both the arresting officer and the star witness in a trial that has brought the Hollywood media pack out in full-throated frenzy. Meanwhile, Terry McCaleb is enjoying an idyllic retirement on Catalina Island when a visit from an old colleague brings his former world rushing back. It's a murder, the unreadable kind of murder he specialized in solving back in his FBI days. The investigation has stalled, and the sheriff's office is asking McCaleb to take a quick look at the murder book to see if he turns up something they've missed. McCaleb's first reading of the crime scene leads him to look for a methodical killer with a taste for rituals and revenge. As his quick look accelerates into a full-sprint investigation, the two crimes - his murdered loner and Bosch's movie director - begin to overlap strangely. With one unsettling revelation after another, they merge, becoming one impossible, terrifying case, involving almost inconceivable calculation. McCaleb believes he has unmasked the most frightening killer ever to cross his sights. But his investigation tangles with Bosch's lines, and the two men find themselves at odds in the most dangerous investigation of their lives.

Summary

In Los Angeles in 1988, a 16-year-old girl disappeared from her home and was later found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, but some of the evidence contradicted that scenario, and detectives came to believe this was in fact a murder. Despite a by-the-book investigation, no one was ever charged. Now Detective Harry Bosch is back with the LAPD with the sole mission of closing unsolved cases, and this girl's death is the first he's given. A DNA match makes the case very much alive again, and it turns out to be anything but cold. The ripples from this death have destroyed at least two other lives, and everywhere he probes, Bosch finds hot grief, hot rage, and a bottomless well of betrayal and malice. And it's not just the girl's family and friends whose lives Bosch is stirring up afresh. With each new development, Harry Bosch finds increasing resistance from within the police force itself. Old enemies are close at hand. Even as he pushes relentlessly to find the truth, Bosch has to wonder if this assignment was intended to be his last. Digging up the past may heal old wounds, or it may expose new, searing ones. From the mind of the man GQ has called "the best mystery writer in the world", The Closers is a masterpiece of thriller writing that is as sharp and immediate as the greatest fiction.

Saved only by forming an unusual bond with the enigmatic beasts who roam the ice, Sophie vows to stay hidden from the world, hoping she can heal.  But fate has other plans - and Sophie's ensuing odyssey and the ragtag family she finds will change the entire world.

In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the 22-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the district attorney. A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto.  Taking the confession of the man he has sought and hated for 13 years is bad enough. Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

Summary

FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she's dreaded for years: the one that tells her the Poet has returned. Years ago she worked on the famous case, tracking down the serial killer who wove lines of poetry into his hideous crimes. Rachel has never forgotten Robert Backus, the killer who called himself the Poet, and apparently he has not forgotten her either. Harry Bosch gets a call, too. The former LAPD detective hears from the wife of an old friend who has recently died. The death appeared natural, but this man's ties to the hunt for the Poet make Harry dig deep, and lead him into a terrifying, bewildering situation. So begins the most compelling, frightening, and masterful novel Michael Connelly has ever written. The Narrows places Harry Bosch in league with Rachel Walling, at odds with the FBI and squarely in the path of the most ruthless and ingenious murderer in Los Angeles' history. What follows is a taut and tantalizing mystery that has Harry Bosch racing from the hostile vistas of the Nevada desert to the glittering Las Vegas strip to the dark corners of Los Angeles. Through it all, Bosch works at his newfound life as father to a young daughter, balancing the deepest love he has ever felt with his own sense of mission and his profound awareness of evil.

As soon as Bosch begins retracing Dr. Kent's steps, contradictions emerge.

Harry Bosch teams up with LAPD Detective Renée Ballard in the new novel from number-one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly. Detective Renée Ballard is working the night beat - known in LAPD slang as "the late show" - and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours to find a stranger rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is retired detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin.  Ballard can't let him go through department records, but when he leaves, she looks into the case herself and feels a deep tug of empathy and anger. She has never been the kind of cop who leaves the job behind at the end of her shift - and she wants in.  The murder, unsolved, was of 15-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally killed, her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy, and to finally bring her killer to justice. Along the way, the two detectives forge a fragile trust, but this new partnership is put to the test when the case takes an unexpected and dangerous turn.  Dark Sacred Night for the first time brings together these two powerhouse detectives in a riveting story that unfolds with furious momentum. And it shows once more why "there's no doubt Connelly is a master of crime fiction" (Associated Press). Please note: This is the abridged version. An unabridged edition is also available.

Summary

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

Summary

"Rendez-vous donc service, Bosch, et laissez tomber. Nous sommes nombreux. Laisser tomber, bordel." Au commissariat de police de Los Angeles, ce genre d'appel anonyme ne surprend personne, et surtout pas Harry Bosch : dépêché depuis peu sur une affaire de meurtre dans le quartier chinois, il soupçonne des activités de racket des triades locales. En raccrochant, il est convaincu d'avoir vu juste. Reste à le prouver... Le principal suspect s'obstine dans son silence, et l'inspecteur Chu, son coéquipier détaché de l'Unité des Crimes Asiatiques, ne lui semble pas franchement digne de confiance. Préoccupé par l'enquête, Bosch n'a pas trouvé le temps de lire le message vidéo envoyé par sa fille la veille au soir. Elle a 13 ans et vit justement à Hong Kong, avec sa mère. L'écran du portable s'allume sur une vision d'horreur absolue. L'appel anonyme et le message de sa fille se télescopent soudain : le pire cauchemar de sa vie vient de commencer.

Summary

Un roman de Michael Connelly comme on les aime avec cette nouvelle enquête de l'incontournable Harry Bosch au cœur de la tourmente, personnelle et professionnelle... Amateurs, ne pas s'abstenir. Lorsque, dix ans après les faits, le mariachi Orlando Merced succombe à ses blessures, l'inspecteur Harry Bosch hérite d'un vrai cas d'école à enseigner à la jeune inspectrice Lucia Soto. Hormis une balle retrouvée à l'autopsie, les pistes sont inexistantes. Plus ennuyeux, et dangereux pour Bosch, Lucia semble beaucoup s'intéresser à un autre dossier, et mettre son nez là où il ne faut pas. Très ébranlé par la nature de cette deuxième à aire, Bosch décide de passer outre au règlement et de mener les deux enquêtes de front, malgré les risques encourus dans une ville où la passion politique l'emporte sur tout.

Summary

Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? The latter possibility could compromise all of the lab's DNA cases currently in court. Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics. Councilman Irvin Irving's son jumped or was pushed from a window at the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch's longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry handle the investigation. Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.

Summary

Un nouveau crime qui fait se confronter Harry Bosch à un "cold case" vieux de 20 ans... Harry Bosch fait le lien entre la balle d'un crime récent et celle d'une affaire remontant à 1992 sur laquelle il avait enquêté. À l'époque, une jeune photographe avait été tuée durant les émeutes de Los Angeles et son crime était resté impuni. Vingt ans plus tard, la balistique démontre que sa mort n'était pas le fait du hasard. Comme un enquêteur devant expliquer un accident d'avion, Harry Bosch va rechercher la boîte noire, la pièce à conviction qui reliera les deux enquêtes. Avec toute sa vigueur et de sa virtuosité dans l'art du suspense, Michael Connelly fait l'apologie du "doute méthodique" dans la quête de la vérité.

Summary

Harry Bosch, inspecteur aux Affaires non résolues, reprend du service pour trois ans avant de partir à la retraite. Plongé dans un cold case, un viol suivi de meurtre où tous les indices mènent à un certain Clayton Pell, il tombe sur de multiples incohérences, et en particulier sur le fait que le suspect n'avait que huit ans au moment des faits. Au beau milieu de cet écheveau de faux-semblants, Harry est appelé sur une possible scène de crime, bien actuelle celle-là : George Irving, fils d'un conseiller municipal et ennemi intime d'Harry, se serait jeté du septième étage de son hôtel. Pourquoi son père exige-t-il que ce soit Harry Bosch qui enquête sur la mort de son fils ? Deux affaires étrangement parallèles où se mêlent corruptions politiciennes et cruautés de prédateurs sexuels que rien n'arrête. Une interprétation qui met brillamment en lumière, au-delà du suspens, une société malade d'elle-même et un Harry Bosch cynique et durci.

Summary

The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism and brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial. The list of suspects includes half the police force. And Harry Bosch is the detective chosen to head the investigation. The political dangers of the case are huge. If it's not investigated fairly, the public outcry could make the Rodney King riots look tame. But a full investigation will take Bosch into the ugliest corners of law enforcement.

Summary

Detective Harry Bosch must track down someone who may never have existed in the new thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly. Harry Bosch is California's newest private investigator. He doesn't advertise, he doesn't have an office, and he's picky about who he works for, but it doesn't matter. His chops from 30 years with the LAPD speak for themselves. Soon one of Southern California's biggest moguls comes calling. The reclusive billionaire is nearing the end of his life and is haunted by one regret. When he was young, he had a relationship with a Mexican girl, his great love. But soon after becoming pregnant, she disappeared. Did she have the baby? And if so, what happened to it? Desperate to know whether he has an heir, the dying magnate hires Bosch, the only person he can trust. With such a vast fortune at stake, Harry realizes that his mission could be risky not only for himself but for the one he's seeking. But as he begins to uncover the haunting story - and finds uncanny links to his own past - he knows he cannot rest until he finds the truth. At the same time, unable to leave cop work behind completely, he volunteers as an investigator for a tiny cash-strapped police department and finds himself tracking a serial rapist who is one of the most baffling and dangerous foes he has ever faced. Swift, unpredictable, and thrilling, The Wrong Side of Goodbye shows that Michael Connelly "continues to amaze with his consistent skill and sizzle" (Cleveland Plain Dealer).

The new thriller from number one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly follows Detective Harry Bosch and his new partner as they investigate a recent murder where the trigger was pulled nine years earlier. In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Beginning with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveal that this shooting may have been anything but random. In this gripping new novel, Michael Connelly shows once again why Harry Bosch is "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News).

Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together. Riveting and relentlessly paced, The Black Box leads Harry Bosch, "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News), into one of his most fraught and perilous cases.

Summary

Un caso che lui non può abbandonare. E che solo insieme a lei riuscirà a risolvere. È un giorno triste, per Harry Bosch, quello del funerale dell'ex poliziotto John Jack Thompson. Un uomo che ha dedicato quarant'anni di vita al LAPD, ma soprattutto un maestro per molti giovani detective alle prime armi. Uno di questi era stato proprio Bosch, che adesso, appoggiato al suo bastone dopo l'operazione al ginocchio che ha subito, osserva da lontano il gruppetto convenuto al cimitero, pensando alle cose che ha imparato da lui. Ad esempio, a capire quando qualcuno sta mentendo durante un interrogatorio. John Jack sapeva riconoscere un bugiardo. Non se n'era mai fatto scappare uno. Ma quando si avvicina a Margaret, la moglie di Thompson, Bosch non si aspetta di scoprire che, anche dalla tomba, John Jack abbia un altro bugiardo da incastrare. Un caso irrisolto di vent'anni prima, l'omicidio di un ragazzo ritrovato senza vita in un vicolo frequentato da spacciatori. Un caso che John Jack si era portato in pensione con sé, trafugando il fascicolo dagli archivi del LAPD. Bosch decide di occuparsene. E c'è una sola persona, dentro la polizia, che può aiutarlo: Renée Ballard. Così, tra un crimine e l'altro del suo turno di notte - "l'ultimo spettacolo", come lo chiamano i poliziotti losangelini - Renée farà di nuovo coppia con Bosch per riaprire piste sepolte da anni di bugie. Perché tutti i bugiardi, prima o poi, fanno i conti con la verità.

L'ultimo giro della notte

Summary

"La scarica di adrenalina adesso era una locomotiva in corsa nelle sue vene. Nel profondo di sé, Renée Ballard sapeva che era per via di momenti come questo che non avrebbe mai mollato, qualsiasi cosa dicessero di lei, in qualsiasi turno la obbligassero a lavorare." La polizia di Los Angeles non è stata gentile con Renée Ballard: ex reporter di nera, è entrata in polizia stufa di scrivere di crimini, e impaziente di risolverne qualcuno, e in poco tempo è diventata detective alla Omicidi. Ma poi qualcosa è andato storto. E adesso la detective Ballard è relegata al turno di notte, insieme al collega Jenkins, a godersi dagli scomodissimi posti in prima fila quello che in polizia chiamano "l'ultimo spettacolo". Ciò che di peggio la notte losangelina ha da offrire. Qualunque cosa accada, però, alle sette del mattino il turno finisce: l'ultimo giro di ruota della notte non consente mai ai detective dell'"ultimo spettacolo" di vedere un crimine risolto, di seguire un caso fino alla fine.  E così anche questa notte. Un travestito picchiato selvaggiamente, trovato sul lungomare in punto di morte; una cameriera aspirante attrice freddata sul pavimento del Dancers, un locale di Hollywood. Ballard e Jenkins sono subito sulle scene del crimine. Ma stavolta Renée, che non è famosa per l'amore delle regole, decide di fregarsene delle procedure: perché dietro i due crimini ha intravisto più che un casuale scoppio di violenza. In una Los Angeles nera come non mai, Michael Connelly ambienta una nuova storia, intrecciando più casi e soprattutto presentandoci un nuovo personaggio - destinato a incontrarsi presto anche con Harry Bosch -, una detective tosta, solitaria e dalla corazza durissima. Una che non ha nessuna intenzione di mollare.

Summary

Harry Bosch è nato con una missione, quella di cercare la verità e operare per la giustizia. Ma ora che è in pensione questi due obiettivi devono essere accantonati. È un nuovo capitolo della sua vita che si apre, un capitolo in cui è ancora più solo, anche perché sua figlia tra poco partirà per il college. Un capitolo in cui deve riempire le giornate e darsi uno scopo. E così Harry cerca di mettere in atto un progetto a cui pensava da tempo, quello di riparare una vecchia Harley-Davidson stazionata nel suo garage. Non ci riuscirà. Non perché gli manchi la capacità, ma perché il suo fratellastro, l'avvocato Mickey Haller, ha bisogno di lui. Un suo cliente, un giovane nero con un passato tumultuoso, è accusato di aver ucciso una donna, una funzionaria molto in vista della municipalità di Los Angeles. Ma Haller è convinto che non sia lui il colpevole e chiede a Bosch di portargli le prove della sua innocenza. Per Harry significa ricominciare a indagare, questa volta senza distintivo, senza il supporto di una struttura organizzata come quella della polizia, e soprattutto a favore della difesa, una mossa che non lo rende affatto felice. Si deciderà a farlo solo quando si rende conto che l'accusato è davvero innocente, e non sarà facile. Chi l'ha intrappolato, e perché? Harry non smetterà di scavare finché, in un crescendo ricco di suspense, porterà alla luce un intrigo brutale basato sulla avidità, il ricatto, la corruzione.

The oft-repeated cliché that “the book was better than the movie” holds true for more reasons than the average reader will ever know. When asked about selling their book rights to Hollywood authors like to joke that they drive their manuscripts to the border of Arizona and California and toss them over the fence, driving back the way they came at breakneck speed. This is probably because Hollywood just doesn’t “get it.” Its vision for the film or TV series rarely seems to match the vision of the author. And for those rare individuals who’ve had the fortune of sitting across the desk from one of the myriad, interchangeable development execs praising the brilliance of their work while ticking off a never-ending list of notes for the rewrite, the pros of pitching their work to Hollywood rarely outweigh the cons. Stephen Jay Schwartz has sat on both sides of that desk - first as the Director of Development for film director Wolfgang Petersen, then as a screenwriter and author pitching his work to the film and television industry. He’s seen all sides of what is known in this small community as “Development Hell.” The process is both amusing and heartbreaking. Most authors whose work contains a modicum of commercial potential eventually find themselves in “the room” taking a shot at seeing their creations re-visualized by agents, producers or development executives. What they often discover is that their audience is younger and less worldly as themselves. What passes for “story notes” is often a mishmash of vaguely connected ideas intended to put the producer’s personal stamp on the project. Hollywood vs. The Author is a collection of non-fiction anecdotes by authors who’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the development room firsthand - some who have successfully managed to straddle the two worlds, seeing their works morph into the kinds of feature films and TV shows that make them proud, and others who stepped blindsided into that room after selling their first or second novels. All the stories in this collection illustrate the great divide between the world of literature and the big or small screen. They underscore the insanity of every crazy thing you’ve ever heard about Hollywood. For insiders and outsiders alike, Hollywood vs. The Author delivers the goods.

Summary

Cal Moore, del departamento de Narcóticos, investigaba sobre una nueva droga de diseño - el "hielo negro" - cuando fue encontrado en un motel con un tiro en la cabeza y una nota en el bolsillo. Para Harry Bosch lo importante no son los hechos aislados, sino el hilo que los mantiene unidos. Y sus averiguaciones sobre el sospechoso suicidio de Moore parecen trazar una línea recta entre los traficantes que merodean por "Hollywood Boulevard" y los callejones más turbios de la frontera con México. Una línea fatídica sembrada de cadáveres... Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Echo Park

Summary

In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the 22-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the district attorney. A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto. Taking the confession of the man he has sought and hated for 13 years is bad enough. Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

A Darkness More Than Night

Summary

Harry Bosch is up to his neck in a case that has transfixed all of celebrity-mad Los Angeles: a movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. Bosch is both the arresting officer and the star witness in a trial that has brought the Hollywood media pack out in full-throated frenzy. Meanwhile, Terry McCaleb is enjoying an idyllic retirement on Catalina Island when a visit from an old colleague brings his former world rushing back. It's a murder, the unreadable kind of murder he specialized in solving back in his FBI days. The investigation has stalled, and the sheriff's office is asking McCaleb to take a quick look at the murder book to see if he turns up something they've missed. McCaleb's first reading of the crime scene leads him to look for a methodical killer with a taste for rituals and revenge. As his quick look accelerates into a full-sprint investigation, the two crimes - his murdered loner and Bosch's movie director - begin to overlap strangely. With one unsettling revelation after another, they merge, becoming one impossible, terrifying case, involving almost inconceivable calculation. McCaleb believes he has unmasked the most frightening killer ever to cross his sights. But his investigation tangles with Bosch's lines, and the two men find themselves at odds in the most dangerous investigation of their lives.
