These books were great. I read some of Michael Connelly's more recent books but wish I read them in chronological order. In the last book, the poet I already knew the ending. I couldn't put it down because the story was so thrilling that I had to know how and why.
I not only would but am! I just love a good detective novel and this one gives it! Creepy characters and suspicion abound in this mystery of just the worst people. The story really moves and at times you almost forget it is only one person narrating because he does the voices so well. I really enjoyed this look into the minds and motivations of pedophiles and murderers and how they network. Really sick stuff.
Not to say narrator was bad, but his voice was a little strange. I kept finding myself distracted from the story. It was almost like being read to by Looney Tunes character.
Fortunately, Connelly's story was still able to shine thru!
Michael Connelly is officially my new favorite author! The twists and turns of this book were so well thought out! Just when you think you have it figured out...nope. HIGHLY recommend it!!!
Interesting story. Liked first person account. But too predictable. Left too many questions unanswered. Why did the killer kill and why in the way that he did? Needs one more chapter to plug the holes and fill in the answers.
When I first started listening to this book I was a bit annoyed with the reader. I recognized his voice and speaking style from listening to another audiobook. His style often overpowers the actual story becoming a huge distraction at times. This is my first Michael Connelly book and it was good, but I found that because it was written almost 10 years ago that some of the story felt very dated. Ultimately, it turned out to be a very good story with some nice plot twists but seemed to wrap up quickly.
