Narrated by Len Cariou, Michael Connelly’s The Closers is Book 11 of the Harry Bosch Series of detective novels. The audiobook is just over twelve hours of listening.
There are thousands of reviews, so I can’t add much. You’ll have no trouble finding a slew of opinions. The title, The Closers, references the nature of Harry Bosch’s current position with the Los Angeles Police Department – he is working cold case files. Bosch returns to the department after a few years of hiatus and the unsolved murder of a teenaged girl is his first case. Suspects galore, including bad cops and old boyfriend, traverse the pages. Purchased this file way back in 2005 and this is my second listen. Should give you an idea of the absorbing character and exploits of Harry Bosch. There is even a TV series devoted to the character – but, hey – ‘the books are better’.
Len Cariou is a great narrator and has read many Michael Connelly books, the ‘voice’ of Harry Bosch. If you’re a TV fan, his most recent role is on Blue Bloods as the family patriarch – but, his most important achievement is a Tony Award for his lead role in Sweeney Todd.
The Harry Bosch Series is terrific – you don’t need to read in sequence. If you enjoy police procedural, jump in anywhere and you’ll enjoy.
