An Original Short Story

In this original short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch seeks justice for the forgotten

NOTE: This file includes a preview of Michael Connelly's novel, The Gods of Guilt.

In "Switchblade," an anonymous tip puts Bosch on a case that has remained unsolved for decades, the vicious stabbing of a teenage boy whose body was found in an abandoned Old Hollywood restaurant.

Cold cases are often the toughest: With no body, no murder scene, and no fingerprints, Bosch nevertheless gets lucky when DNA evidence from the murder weapon points to a known killer. But the DA insists that science alone is not enough - he needs the case to be bulletproof before he'll take it to court.

Determined to speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves, Bosch has one chance to wrench a confession out of a cold-blooded killer, or risk letting him walk free for good.

In this gripping, never-before-published story by "master of the crime thriller" (Huffington Post) Michael Connelly, Detective Harry Bosch quenches his thirst for justice and shows why he is "one of the most popular and enduring figures in American crime fiction" (Chicago Tribune).

Customer Reviews

Weak & disappointing

I am a long time Connelly fan. This is 32 pages of practically no story, and 60 preview pages of 'the gods of guilt'.

A Good Short Story

I enjoy short stories and that’s exactly what this is - a short story. If you enjoy authors like Jeffrey Archer you’ll understand this short story. It’s not a novel and you should not read it as a chapter of a novel - it’s a short story. Try it - you may like it.


Call this "Bait and Switchblade" since I thought I was getting a new book from my (now NOT) favorite author. But no, I paid for a tease of the new book I will NOT buy because I paid to to see the book I already read (and paid for) "God of Guilt." Shame on you, my former favorite author, and shame on your publisher for this sham.
