Publisher's Summary

Harry attacked his commanding officer and is suspended indefinitely, pending a psychiatric evaluation. At first he resists the LAPD shrink, but finally recognizes that something is troubling him and has for a long time. In 1961, when Harry was 12, his mother, a prostitute, was brutally murdered with no one ever accused of the crime.

With the spare time a suspension brings, Harry opens up the 30-year-old file on the case and is irresistibly drawn into a past he has always avoided. It's clear that the case was fumbled and the smell of a cover-up is unmistakable. Someone powerful was able to divert justice and Harry vows to uncover the truth. As he relentlessly follows the broken pieces of the case, the stirred interest causes new murders and pushes Harry to the edge of his job...and his life.

What the critics say

"Grabs you and shakes you-and it feels great." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"A powerful book." ( Houston Chronicle)
"Connelly is at the top of his form in this brilliant mystery. Dick Hill does an outstanding job capturing Bosch's cynicism and anger, confusion and hurt. Hill changes his voice well to portray the other characters, most notably the female police psychiatrist...this is a first-rate production." ( AudioFile)

Good read

Although I normally don't read "series" books, I decided to give this Harry Bosch book a trial. He was "out of the office", working off the grid so to speak, and I really enjoyed it. The story was different than normal Bosch books, the narrator was excellent in his portrayal of all personalities, Enjoy. #Audible1

Bosch's past revealed

The Last Coyote fills in some of LA Detective Harry Bosch's history. Fans of Michael Connelly's relentless Detective know that he is the orphaned son of a LA prostitute who was killed in the early 1960's and the crime was never cleared. In this book, Bosch finally decides that he cannot let the crime go unsolved and, he finds, unvestigated any longer and begins his own private investigation, an adventure that once again gets Harry Bosch crosswise with the LA Police Department. The book has all the plot twists and turns that readers expect from Connelly and keeps the readers interest until the final page. I have read 12 of the books in the Bosch series and have read them in a random order. Wherever you are in your travels through Bosch's life, this book will fit.

Good read, great character

Been reading about Harry and his homicides for a number of years, love his acerbic attitude. This book is the first one that is a deep look into the character of Harry himself and his personal background/childhood, all tied in to his profession. Will be of particular interest to anyone into psychoanalysis. Dick Hill is superb, you will have no trouble following who-is-saying-what-to-who. Worth the download; made me stay up too late!

Another winning Bosch novel

Sometimes Harry Bosch's antagonistic manner and somewhat negative outlook on life makes these novels a bit hard to take. But The Last Coyote is another example of Connelly finding the correct balance. The story line is a good one. The characters are all well developed and interesting and there are enough twists and turns to keep the listener interested and entertained. Dick Hill does another fine job with the narration and I'll keep listening to the Bosch series.

A good read

I enjoy this author. I prefer the narrator on the more recent books but this was a good story for filling in the background information on the main character, Harry Bosch. After reading several of the later books where the events of his earlier life are referred to I am glad the earlier books have been added to the selection at Audible.

Harry Bosch Is Not A Girly Man

Volcanic... That's the temperament which makes Harry Bosch, Connelly's tough-cop protagonist an anger-management challenge. In 'Last Coyote' Harry's driving-demons are revealed, explored, and confirmed. Connelly gives good plot. Bosh is its foundation throughout the series... Here Connelly builds that foundation out of the rock of the cop's psychic history. Except for a small character stumble toward the end, this book is a smart, clever puzzler that will keep you focused till its dark end. I'm looking forward to the next time Connelly lets Bosch lead me through an LA puzzle.

Dick Hill's character interpretations RESONATE!

Great Listen

With this story, the listener/reader really has the opportunity to get inside Bosch's head.

Connelly does a great job of spinning the personal side of the murder of Bosch's mother with a really good detective story.

Dick Hill is good as narrator.

Definitely recommended.

Stand Out - Bosch's Past Revealed

What did you love best about The Last Coyote: Harry Bosch Series, Book 4?

That Bosch found out the details of why his mother was murdered.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bosch of course, but also liked his therapist's character as well as the character who admitted to Bosch that he had loved his mother and wanted to marry her.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the entire book and there were plenty of vivid scenes: when Bosch left the note on the politician's flyer and the bodyguard chasing Bosch down the sloped driveway.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, definitely.

Any additional comments?

Recommend this one!
