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!
While somethings in the plot were could be predicted, it was a great listen. The characters were fully developed and you could almost smell the scenes painted by the author. I'll be reading lost more from this author
It was exciting & mesmerising i couldn't turn it off
All of it. I've read all Michael Connelly's books over the years & when I bought my iPad & started to listen to books while I crocheted, I found I'd forgotten some of the stories & so, decided to read them again. I was not disappointed. This one I particularly enjoyed as it had me on the edge of my seat many times - I finished it in 1day & evening as I couldn't turn it off.
Nothing this reader was fabulous, he made it exciting but plausible. I would always read anything he narrated.
This was definately one of my favorite audiobooks
The plot was great, I loved that things were unexpected.
I could not believe that I actually finished this book. It was awful. I have enjoyed Connelly books in the past but this was horrible.
I listen to different books, some with interesting twisting plots, others just for an easy, enjoyable listen. I would put this book smack in the middle of that. It has an excellent plot with interesting characters. But while it is certainly an easy listen, I thought it was better than most other books of this genre. I enjoyed it and it has caused me to seek out more Michael Connelly books -- now I'm listening to the Harry Bosch books. So I highly recommend it to those who have listened to Baldacci, Berendson, or DeMille. It may be a bit more straightforward, but it is a good read (listen).
This is one of his best (if not best) standalone books by this author. I enjoyed every single page. It was suspenseful, stimulating, exciting, and clever. The narrator for the Audible version is flawless!
More unusual characters than some of Connelley's novels. I love the Harry Bosch series but this was an enjoyable listen. Plenty of twists as the plot unfolds and you find out the back story on each of the main characters. A likable heroine despite the fact that she is a theif.
