I was very disappointed with this mystery when you compare it to other Connelly mysteries. The things an "intelligent" person did were ridiculous and far fetched. Very unbelievable plot. I found myself thinking, "why would someone be so dumb to do that!
I expected more from the author of the Bosch books and others. I couldn't make the "leap of faith" to imagine the protagonist of this novel - a Ph.D. chemist - willing to risk so much for a "wrong number", and if I read "I just wanted to help. To see if she was all right." one more time, the book would have wound up in the fireplace. By the end, it was "who cares?".
For any Connelly fan, this book is a great break from Harry Bosch. Not a hard boiled detective book but a great thriller for anyone with a more than a few neurons flashing. It is a great listen and better than any James Patterson trash ever.
Interesting novel. You have to wonder what a high tech CEO is doing chasing a recycled telephone number for a call girl. The reading is very good. Just a enjoyable, not to deep, mystery.
Yes, highly recommend. Well written and read, Very hard to turn off.
Not sure they all played so well
Very good narrator and easy to listen.
Nope just a good listen
in first part of the story, I thought the main character, Henry, was the "bad guy, but my view changed. A tangled, but interesting story.
The way it led the reader through the story. I kept changing my view of Henry.
He shows the reader about Henry's life and relationships in the present and also gives information about his past, that lends some understanding to his actions. During all of this his life is unraveling in dangerous ways. This made for an interesting story.
Nothing!, Great narrator!
yes, but on the basis of other works .
The main characters actions just lack credibility. Definitely the worst Michael Connelly book I have bought.
Pierce is an idiot. He was an easy sucker and the eventual satisfactory outcome is totally unbelievable. I love Michael's books and this was so out of his genre that I was totally disappointed. It is hard to believe that Connelly wrote it.
Not sure what to say about this book. Probably my least favorite of Michael Connelly. Just not a believable story.
If I hadn't paid for this book, I would never finished it. The "hero" made so many dumb mistakes that it became very tiresome. This is the first Michael Connelly book that I didn't care for.
