Echo Park by Michael Connelly

Detective Harry Bosch is obsessed with a missing person case for last 13 years. On and Off he looks into the records to look for a clue or a break of what happened to Marie Gesto. Thriteen years after Marie Gesto had gone missing, serial killer, Reynard Waits confesses to the murder of Marie Gesto. He even leads to the corpse of Marie Gesto.
Reynard Waits reminds us of Hannibal Lecter and Connelly himself points out that this guy is like Hannibal. It is not a typical whodunit and more or less we know who is the killer. But it is well written and has a fast narration. The chase sequences, final denouement and field trip sequences are nail biting and graphic. With the details given you can actually visualize the entire sequences. Probably Connelly had written this with an eye for the movie. Yes it would make a good movie.
