I first listened to this book 3 years ago. I had read/listened to (several times) all the Bosch and Mickey Haller books to that point and so this seemed bizarre and not really like Michael Connelly to me. So I had a bad opinion of it. Three years later, and after many, many re-listens to all the Bosch and Haller books, I decided to give it another try. I liked it much better this time. Possibly because I had read quite a few other authors in the interim and wasn't comparing it to Bosch and Haller.
I caught the references to Joey Marx and other things that I probably did not get last time I listened to this. It was enjoyable. I loved Cassie Black - so sad about Max, though. I would love some stories about the two of them.
He was pretty good. I'd put him in the top half of narrators I've listened to.
Cassie's interactions with Jodie and then having to make a decision at the end. I like Cassie.
I am glad I re-listened to Void Moon. Now there's only one other book - Chasing the Dime - that I wasn't impressed with the first time. Think I'll give that another try.
Void moon, set in Las Vegas and LA, keeps the story humming with Connellys signature sprinkle
of local sites and lore mixed with a great story and twists and turns that keep you turning the page.
I've listened to all the Bosch books and wanted to try this as Bosch was becoming too formulaic. I really enjoyed this change of pace.
Maybe not my favourite Connelly book, but then, I'm a hardcore Bosch fan. The story was good, lots of twists, some a bit predictable and others a bit crammed in at the end. But genuine emotion present and characters were convincing. Great drivetime entertainment during my a commute.
I am a retired psychologist with lots of time on my hands, thus I listen to a lot of books.
This is my first book with the Cassie Black character. I am not sure if there are more but I hope so. I loved this book. The storyline made sense and kept my interest throughout and I loved Cassie. It is well worth the listen or read.
i love this book. This was actually my second time listening to this book, the first time was on CD from my library. It was bizzare that a story told from primarily a woman's point of view was read by a man, but it didn't detract from the story.
I am a fan of Michael Connelly, and the Harry Bosch series, but this one fell short for me. the character development was shallow, and the over emphasis of technical detail of the surveillance gear was reminiscent of a bad Tom Clancy dream.
This book may intrigue you if you are interested in Vegas casinos, and surveillance equipment, but I wasn't given enough in characters to feel very committed to the lackluster story.
Go get a Bosch novel!
