This is a great series that never gets old! There are always twists and turns that keep you wondering "who done it". The character of Harry Bosch is complex and even though rather rough endearing.
That Bosch found out the details of why his mother was murdered.
Bosch of course, but also liked his therapist's character as well as the character who admitted to Bosch that he had loved his mother and wanted to marry her.
I liked the entire book and there were plenty of vivid scenes: when Bosch left the note on the politician's flyer and the bodyguard chasing Bosch down the sloped driveway.
Recommend this one!
I always read the reviews before I use my precious credit. There were so many raves about this Harry Bosch character that I threw my lot in and purchased the book. I think for a newcomer to this series, probably reading from introduction or 1st book would be best. It took me two months to complete, not because I am illiterate, but because you have to sort out who's who, etc., to the point that I lost interest, came back, lost interest. From the middle to the conclusion, it was not such a bad listen, but not creditworthy.
First of my audio book experiences I was interested right away and almost bummed when it ended. Great for work.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
With this story, the listener/reader really has the opportunity to get inside Bosch's head.
Connelly does a great job of spinning the personal side of the murder of Bosch's mother with a really good detective story.
Dick Hill is good as narrator.
This is not a good Bosch story. I have liked other Harry Bosch stories but I did not enjoy this one. He usually cuts through red tape and brushes aside the establishment but in this book he seemed spoiled and petulant. If you want a detective story that really deals with the higher ups and red tape in a very funny way, get A Killing Frost, by R.D. Wingfield. You will not regret it.
Enjoying one good listen after the next!
Another great Harry Bosch story, with awesome narration by Dick Hill. This time, the crime to be solved is personal and it comes with the most amazing twists and turns! Harry is on personal leave because of trauma from a prior crime-solving effort and during that time, turns to a case that is of a deeply personal nature. Harry gets the job done, but not without a concussion and some soul-searching that will surely be factors in his future.
I'm a fan of these Harry Bosch stories -- so far have not read one I didn't enjoy!
I have listened to almost all of the Bosch series and this is by a long shot my least favorite. I don't know why it didn't suck me in like harry usually does. It was something about the characters in the story, they just were not interesting to me like most of Connellys characters usually are. Although, dick hill was amazing as always. If you like hills works you may want give it a try.
