  • "One of the best in the series"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    An engaging novel with an earth-shattering conclusion that will not disappoint. Lost Light is the Harry Bosch series at its best. No loose ends and a quilt work of plots that all come together quite nicely. The major characters are well developed and the narration is superb. If you like Connelly and Bosch, you will not be disappointed.

    Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

    Story

    I don't know why I wasn't expecting a lot from this book but I was pleasantly surprised. The really bad guys were really bad and the protagonist had enough likable qualities to keep you rooting for him. Maybe it was because the last book I listened to was so bad that this one seemed exceptional. I liked the story, the characters and the author's ability to make me want to continue listening. The narration was excellent too.

  • "Burke is an outstanding novelist"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    James Lee Burke is in my top five list of talented novelists. He's one of the few that can tell a really good story while using imagery that adds to the experience instead of simply subscribing to the theory that the more metaphors, the better. This was a marvelous story with several well-developed and interesting characters. Occasionally the narrator made it difficult to discern who was speaking but he did an otherwise exceptional job. I really can't say anything bad about this novel and picked it because of previous good listens by the author. I will listen to another.

    Dave Robicheaux felt the bone-grinding pain rip through his body as the .45 did its damage. Through the agonizing haze that enveloped him, he heard an almost inhuman laugh - the hideous, victorious cackling of Jimmie Lee Boggs - a sound he would never forget. It had started out as an ordinary prisoner transfer, then turned into a blood bath when the convicted murderer got hold of a gun.

  • The Man with a Load of Mischief: A Richard Jury Novel, Book 1

    "I stumbled onto this series 20 years ago"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Waited and waited for it to come to audible, only her last was on audible and without having read the series people might not really have developed the fondness for Jury and Plant that develops when reading a series.

    The books are witty and dry without being too graphic. Not as cutesy or silly as cozy mysteries tend to be; the gimmick is the inns so it doesn't seem as childish or staged.

    These are not modern mysteries with psycho serial killers and ritual murders, just plain old fashioned murder with a little wit and sadness.

    The only flaw is that after waiting soooo long, they picked the worst narrator. The dry humor is still there but he is so annoying it detracts from the overall enjoyment of the story.

  • Birdman

    "Graphic, that seemed a little gratuitous."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The story was great... that said I felt it was too bogged down by the detailed barbarities. I don't expect an author to sugar coat things. I fully understand the need to convey concepts that are unimaginable, even disturbing. However, scenes of violence and inhumanity, much like scenes of sex can easily cross over from being descriptive to unnecessarily explicit, vulgar.

    I did enjoy the story, it was not predictable or implausable. Although another reviewer remarked on the cliche of prostitutes and drug addicts, this is an unfortunate statistical fact. It was a good listen overall, but buyer beware.

  • Blue Monday: Frieda Klein, Book 1

    "Not in the same league as Tana French, but okay."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book was recommended at the end of Tana French's Broken Harbor. I allowed myself hope, but alas, the story was just okay and very predictable. The dialog was on the weak side, suspension or reality was high and the characters seemed a little forced.

    Overall there were points that were gripping, but to many others where I had to rewind because I drifted into my own thoughts.

    Don't know if I will try the second in the series.

  • "Funny magical mystery"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    Katie moves to Savannah to work in her aunt and uncle's new bakery and soon discovers some surprising things about her family and herself - she comes from a family of witches and is one herself. Even before the bakery is open there's a murder. What follows is a funny light mystery with plenty of laughs and just a fun book to listen to.

    The only problem I had with the narrator is she also narrates the Sookie Stackhouse books so at times I thought I was back listening to that series since both characters sound the same.

On warm summer mornings he sits on a bench holding a small book, The Balm in Gilead, in his large hands. "There is a balm in Gilead," his neighbor Clara Morrow reads from the dust jacket, "to make the wounded whole." While Gamache doesn't talk about his wounds and his balm, Clara tells him about hers. Peter, her artist husband, has failed to come home. Failed to show up as promised on the first anniversary of their separation. She wants Gamache's help to find him. Having finally found sanctuary, Gamache feels a near revulsion at the thought of leaving Three Pines. "There’s power enough in Heaven," he finishes the quote as he contemplates the quiet village, "to cure a sin-sick soul." And then he gets up. And joins her.
