In 1993 Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out  of a supermarket in Hollywood. The case was quickly elevated by LAPD commanders from the Missing Persons squad to the Homicide Division, where Harry Bosch was assigned to the case. But the young woman never turned up -dead or alive - and it was a case Bosch couldn't solve.

Thirteen years later Bosch is in the Open-Unsolved Unit, where he still keeps the Gesto file on his desk, when he gets a call from the DA's office. Raynard Waits, a man accused of two heinous killings, is willing to come clean in regard to several other murders in a deal to avoid the death penalty. One of those murders, he says, is the killing of Marie Gesto. Bosch is given the task of taking Waits' confession, and of making sure the killer is not scamming authorities to avoid a date with death.

In confirming the confession Bosch must get close to the man he has sought -and hated - for thirteen years. Bosch's whole being as a cop begins to crack when he comes to realise that he and his partner missed a clue back in 1993 that could have led them to Waits and would have stopped the nine murders that followed the killing of Marie Gesto.
