1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 4 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you haven't read the books that precede this one in the Harry Bosch series, I strongly urge you to stop reading this review and any others about The Last Coyote and go back to The Black Echo and work forward in order the books were published. You'll miss a lot of the character development that makes this such a special book unless you've seen a lot of Harry at work before he takes on this case while suspended for stress leave.

As this book opens, Harry is receiving "counseling" after attacking his superior officer. Harry finds this to be like listening to fingernail scratches on a chalkboard. He's also having house problems: His stilt-based house with a great view has been condemned by the city after the big earthquake. The earthquake also shook his girlfriend so much that she left town.

Frustrated that he can't work, Harry decides to take a look at the file on his mother's death. From there, he begins to work the case. It's a tremendous opportunity for readers to understand Harry's youthful years much better. As you might expect, not all things are as they seemed at the time of the murder. Uncovering the truth is difficult and painful. But in the end, justice is done.

One of the beauties of this book is how much it shows about a range of emotions and motives that people employ to look out for themselves. In a way, Harry is an aficionado of depravity, it's part of being human. It's just that he has to stop it when it goes too far . . . or arrange for justice when the eggs cannot be unscrambled any more.

I don't recall a more bittersweet story in this series. You'll be thinking at the end: What if?

I did not receive the book that I ordered. Therefore cannot review it. I think it would have been a good book and would like to read the rest of the series.

I have enjoyed other Connelly books and a friend sent this book on Facebook as a great read. I enjoyed Harry Bosch in his searching for the answer to solve this mystery - and his positive attitude. On holidays at Coyote Lakes Golf Course - thinking about coyotes there - it was a relaxing read and a book I wanted to finish quickly as I needed to know the ending.

I have read a number of Michael Connolly books and I consider that anything he writes I'm going to like and want more. I have not quite finished reading "The last Coyote" but I am really enjoying it and awaiting the conclusion knowing that Bosch will come out on top.

I had not been able to find it in local stores so I was glad to find it as I am getting close to reading all of Michael Connelly's novels.

In the Last Coyote, Harry Bosch attempts to find his mother's killer. To compound matters, he has to do so as a civilian - a consequence of being suspended for assaulting his commanding officer. The novel keeps you guessing constantly with numerous twists. Connelly's narration effectively puts you in Harry's shoes, stirring up a whirlwind of emotions. A must read whether or not you are a Connelly/Bosch fan.

"The Last Coyote" is Michael Connelly's fourth book, was first published in 1995 and features Harry Bosch as its central character. Something of Bosch's background has been covered in the previous three books. Bosch's mother was a prostitute who was murdered when he was twelve - he spent his teenage years in and out of youth halls. He enlisted in the army and served in Viet-Nam, before returning home and joining the police force. Once a member of the LAPD's elite Robbery-Homicide Division, Bosch currently works at the Hollywood Division's Homicide table. He's still a jazz-loving loner, seen by some as a maverick, with a taste for coffee, beer and cigarettes. There have been some changes in his life since the end of "The Concrete Blonde", though - his relationship with Sylvia Moore has finished and his house has been damaged in a recent earthquake. Despite the fact that it's been declared unfit for habitation, he's still unofficially living there.

As "The Last Coyote" opens, Bosch is in trouble with the department again. After his boss, the bureaucratic Harvey "98" Pounds, interfered with the questioning of a suspect, Bosch lost his temper and pushed Pounds head-first through an office window. As a result, he's been placed on involuntary stress leave and has to attend regular sessions with Dr Carmen Hinojos, a psychiatrist at Behaviorial Sciences Division. These sessions contribute to Bosch deciding to investigate the one case that really matters to him : his mother's murder. Although he's working on the case unofficially and has lost his badge - albeit temporarily - he still manages to pull the original case file. Opened in October 1961, it was investigated at the time by two detectives called Eno and McKittrick.

Format: Hardcover
The Last Coyote, by exciting writer, Michael Connelly, may not be the best in the Detective Harry Bosch Mystery Series, but the series overall was absolutely the best. I enjoy stories that go from one book to the next. I find the ongoing storylines very exciting and think most people who enjoy this genre will feel the same way. I like getting to know the characters on an intimate level. Makes the story seem very real.
