I have read all of Connelly's books and this one does not disappoint. The narrator's voice is a good fit for the book, though his inflection is poor. Not enough to detract from the impact of the story, fortunately. It is a legal thriller with lots of action.
Holds you until the end and never allows you to go. Highly recommended !
Micheal Connelly has always been one of my favorite authors. His character, Harry Boesch is one of the best. But this was a great introduction to a new character, Michael Haller. It was an especially interesting and detailed court drama. Anyone who enjoys character descriptions and suspense will enjoy this book.
Predictable. Trite. Clich?. The reader was HORRIBLE and the cheesy music did nothing to improve matters. I was disappointed right from the start and my listening experience never improved.
His previous books were a little better. Some of my dislike for the book may have come from the narrator. He sounded like a bad high school actor trying to read his lines. He couldn't deliver.
I don't like this reader at all; he has no sense of where to put the stress, and does little to differentiate the characters, all of whom have the same more or less annoying, argumentative tone.
As far as the book is concerned, it is pretty slow going compared with the Bosch novels, all of which I've read and enjoyed; I might almost say padded with insignificant details.
Horrible way too long. The narrator drones on and on this is not Michael Connelly's usual work. I would not waste my credits on this.
I'm a newcomer to Connelly's work, and am, overall, impressed. He's not at the level of the best P.D. James, and I'm finding I can usually guess the villain well in advance. But his characters and at least some of their moral dilemmas, are compelling.
Variety...the spice of life! I read a variety of genres. From historical fiction, to murder mystery, to vampires and on to teen fiction.
Great read and good reader. Everything comes together unexpectedly at the end. Even someone that is not "law-savvy" can enjoy this book.
I've always enjoyed Micheal Connelly's books whether they be Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller. In this book you get both. The book keeps moving and kept my interest.
The narrator was OK in the 1st person as the main character but was a bit confusing doing the voices of the minor characters. Several sounded alike.
