The manhunt for the 'Dollmaker', so called because he painted the faces of all his victims with make-up after death, was finally over. But four years later, Norman Church's widow is taking Bosch to court, accusing him of killing the wrong man. To make matters worse, Bosch has just received a note, eerily reminiscent of the ones the Dollmaker used to taunt him with, giving him a location where a body can be found. Is the Dollmaker still alive? Or is this the work of a vicious copycat killer, determined to repeat the Dollmaker's grisly feats and destroy Bosch's career in the process? As he battles to clear his name in court, Bosch faces a desperate race against time to find the killer.Read Less

I'd read this book before I ordered it. I was replacing a worn-out copy. It's been a while since I read it, but I like the Harry Bosch series. I got it so others could read a nicer copy, and the one I got is a nice, clean book, looks almost brand new. I highly recommend this book (and the rest of the Harry Bosch series) to all who like this genre.

I like this author a lot and this book is one of the reasons why. His writing is very vivid and detailed, but not to the point that you get tired of all the details. After reading a couple of his books I went out and bought all of them to be able to read them in order. You don?t have to do this, but I do suggest it because later books will reference back to this one. I highly recommend this book.
