L.A.P.D. Homicide Detective Harry Bosch takes on another tough case--the murder of a young boy. All that remains are bones of the victim, dating the death twenty years before they’re found on a canyon hillside. Peter Jay Fernandez’s portryal of Bosch expresses the cop’s dogged pursuit of the case, as well as his frustations with it. Yet, Fernandez doesn’t quite seem to get into Bosch’s skin, to be Bosch, as other narrators, notably Dick Hill, have in previous books. There just isn’t the sharp edge and innate tension to any of the cops. Longtime fans may notice this, but for someone new to Bosch, the story and Fernandez’s reading still make intriguing listening.
