Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Whoa! This novel is clever. The way it combines courtroom AND police procedural simultaneously... no flashbacks... no foreshadowing... SIMULTANEOUSLY... is like getting your imagination caught in twin gears that just screw you in and in and in...
It is the highest craft of cop/legal drama. Plus the plotting is hair-triggered. It's everything you can want in a hard-boiled-noir story. Absolutely terrific ... 4.9 stars. And Dick Hill is magnificent. I'm going to post this review, look up Dick Hill readings... AND BUY SOME!
good book -- and a good read. maybe a bit long at the end but overall worth reading one of his older novels set at a time of typewriters and pay phones instead of cell phones. Interesting to remember back to those times and how difficult police work was without all the technology we have now.
Solid Harry Bosche character development.
This story is OK...about 1/3 too long, but typical Connelly in that respect. Not exactly a gripping, edge of your seat who done it but OK if you're trapped in the car for a long drive. My disappointment in this audiobook is the narrator...he "acted" each character as though they all had some kind of salivary condition which produced an over abundance of saliva that had to be swallowed in gulps before each character spoke. It was distracting and became a running joke between my husband and me while we were listening to this in the car!
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I like the Harry Bosch series and this certainly did not dissapoint me. I loved it. Dick Hill's narration was terrific. This has everything one could want in a murder mystery.
I have read all of the Harry Bosch books and I am now starting over.It is a great book, truly keeps you guessing up until the very end. It is great to go with all of the others or as a stand alone book! Highly Recommend!!
After listening to the Black Echo and Black Ice, this one was my favorite so far. The story was not predictable and wasn't far fetched. I hated to have the story end. You'll love it!
I agree with all the positive reviews................I have a rule ............cannot listen to books in the house.........must be in the car......made an exception with this one
I have read/listened to them out of order but this is by far the best. With the exception of The Drop the early ones in the series are far better.
There was too much saliva sucking and swallowing on too many characters. I think it was an attempt to make the performance more realistic, but it was way too overdone. It became very annoying after a while.
I hated the voice he used for women, it was insipid and made them seem like brainless twits. It would have been better if he just spoke in his ordinary voice - we can tell it's a woman by the "she said" or "Sylvia said" etc.
Despite the above comment, the narration was well done and the story was great.
