The plot was a little over the top, but it was still a really enjoyable "read." The love interest was kind of pointless, but maybe she will be a character in a future book. The Bosch series it's worth listening to, but don't let the TV series impair your imagination. You can listen to this book by itself, but you'll get more out of it if you listen to the series in order.
Nice background on Bosch. Narrator does great as always. I'd recommend it for sure if you are planning to continue the series.
This is my favorite Harry Bosch novel out of the 8 I have read. This one gets into Harry's head a bit more, as he tracks down a cold, but extremely important, case. More twists and turns than most novels I have read, but it all fits together nicely. It kept me intrigued to the end. Harry isn't quite as funny as John Corey (Nelson DeMille), but his cases are a little more complex, and perhaps more compelling.
This is the best of the four Bosch books I have read. I have liked them all. It would appear that catching up to the Bosch series so far, will require an inordinate amount of time, but it has to be done. I am probably twenty books behind if you count the Mickey Haller series.
The struggle to come to grips with Harry's past was more the story than the mystery around his mom's death. It portrayed him as a weaker more vulnerable character. interesting twist.
Dick Hill does standard narrative quite well. When he does a female voice, the performance devolves into pure annoyance.
Good story line. I liked the plot. Charters were good. Enjoyed the audiobook. Will read the next one.
i love Bosch novels, Mr Connelly writes a great charactrt with the same conflicts and inperfections we all have. in this book,
the audible book reader does angood jobbif NOT over acting HOWEVER I hate when male actors portray females by WHISPERING - It is NOT sexy and makes it hard to hear the book!!
i would have given 1 star but he did a good job on Bosch's voice
