Overview

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch tackles three tough cases that span a legendary career in this never-before-collected trio of stories.

In "Christmas Even," the case of a burglar killed in mid-heist leads Bosch to retrace a link to his past. In "Father's Day," Bosch investigates a young boy's seemingly accidental death and confronts his own fears as a father. In "Angle of Investigation," Bosch delves into one of the first homicides he ever worked back as a uniformed rookie patrolman, a case that was left unsolved for decades.

Together, these gripping stories span Bosch's controversial career at the LAPD, and show the evolution of the haunted, legendary investigator he would become. Utterly unputdownable, they are proof that "Connelly never stops doling out the suspense....Once it grabs you in those first few pages, it won't let go of you" (Boston Globe).

I love the Harry Bosch books but this one was a disappointment. It reads like a Sherlock Holmes case, which I don't mind, but the best part of the Bosch stories is that he takes you on the journey of how he solved the crimes. I expected that they wouldn't be too indepth but was hoping in exchange I would get some good background info on Harry, making me understand his character more. Really it is just 3 small stories and 30 pages of an upcoming book. I would rather have had another 2 stories and no excerpt since I'm sure I will buy the book anyway.

These are taken from other books, I already purchased over the years! I so love Michael C. but this was a ripoff!

These three stories were short and predictable, and the longest section previewed "The Drop", same as in "Suicide Run". Nothing more than a revenue generator....

Wish I knew how many pages it was before I ordered it!

I am a huge Connelly fan and have scarfed down almost all of his books within the last year. This was sort of pointless, though. It's like some suit convinced him to throw something together to make a few extra bucks.

Typically well written Connely stories, but in condensed "Readers Digest" fashion. Fifty plus pages for three stories, and twenty plus more pages of a part of another Connelly book that they want to entice you to buy. What a ripoff!

Michael Connelly is a great writer but I would not purchase another of his books of short stores. Each story could be used as a perfect example for the definition of the word "vignette." Much tooooo short.

The description on this book (along with the large file size) leads you to believe you are getting a full-length novel, albeit consisting of 3 stories. Not so. The stories are only 50 pages in length total, with the remaining 30 pages being an excerpt from a different book. The writing style is ok, probably containing the least grammatical and spelling errors of many of the ebooks I've read, but that doesn't make up for not getting what a person is lead to believe they are getting. Also, the "whodunit" factor is very low - you could see the ending coming a mile away on all three. Well, maybe 1/4 mile away since they were all so short. Worst of all, the second story is a direct plot rip-off from an episode of CSI that aired back when the tv series first started. Did the writer think that people who watch tv don't also read books and so he could get away with using the same storyline himself? All in all, very disappointing. I won't be bothering with any more of this author's books.

A collection of a few short stories. Don't order if it is your first introduction to Harry Bosch. If you are already familiar with him, you may like it.

I'll say the same thing I said about Suicide Run, spend your money someplace else. Shame on Connelly for ripping people off like this.

I enjoyed the book, but was very disappointed that the third "story" was nothing more than a teaser of his newly released book. Didn't think I got my money's worth with only about 75 pages of stories.

Would not recomend, too short to follow the plot.

Didn't know these were short stories. Thought it was a compilation of earlier books. I did like the preview of the latest book, although I do not enjoy previews. I'd rather read a whole book and decide whether or not it was any good.

Connelly's Bosch character is always well written and interesting. The problem with this book is that it isn't three stories as indicated. It's two stories and a multi-page preview of one of his novels. I'd rate the two stories as four star, it's the substitution of paid advertising in place of a third stories that ruins it for me.

Love Michael Connelly & Harry, but don't know if I would have bought it if I had known that they were very short, short stories. Oh, well.

Nice stories,but I enjoy a longer read.

The headline says it all. Upon finishing each of the short stories there was a feeling of disappointment that that is all there is.
