Page turner with info you do not want to know,
This review is from: Echo Park (Paperback)
Thirteen years after the disappearance of Marie Gesto the case is still haunting Harry Bosch. Then one day he gets a call that a serial killer known as The Bag Man wants to confess the murder of Marie. The murderer knows all the right details, can even lead them to the body, but Harry is still not convinced that Raynard Waits is the killer. The complicating factor is the assistant DA in charge: Rick O'Shea is running for DA and can certainly use a lot of positive media attention. Harry suspects that O'Shea has made a deal with Waits' attorney and the matter gets even more complicated when Waits escapes, leaving 2 officers dead and one wounded. Together with an old profiling friend from the FBI, Rachel Walling, Bosch tries to find the true identity of Waits and his whereabouts. Eventually he finds the guy in his foxhole, but the conspiracy is completely different from what Bosch originally envisaged.
A true page turner. I read the nearly 400 pages in less than 24 hours: before getting up, during my lunch break and any other moment I could find. However, the end of the book provides information on Harry Bosch which is not only unexpected but also not what you want to know about the (anti-)hero of the Bosch series. This left a bit of a bitter aftertaste.
