The Drop

Michael Connelly, read by Len Cariou. Hachette Audio, unabridged, nine CDs, 11 hrs., $39.98 ISBN 978-1-60024-723-1
In Connelly’s latest, Los Angeles police detective Harry Bosch has to deal with two puzzling cases. The first involves DNA evidence from a 20-year-old unsolved rape and murder that matches up with a convict who would have been just eight years old at the time of the crime. The second sees Bosch investigating the death of an influential and overbearing councilman’s son, while trying to avoid the police department’s internal politics. Len Cariou, who has narrated most of Connelly’s recent books, sounds more over-the-hill than appropriate for Bosch, despite the detective’s looming age-based forced retirement. Nonetheless, Cariou’s performance ably serves this compelling, fast-paced police procedural—even if his croaking voice takes a little getting used to. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Nov.)
