Bosch was on trial for doing the right thing and his efforts were questioned by a defense attorney who knew nothing about police work but she had right on her side. The trial could have been boring except for the body found.
You can compare any Bosch book to the gritty detectives like
Philip Marlowe but the other books would not measure up. Connelly's writing style is pure police jargon and true events. The other series are intriguing and the detective was gripping but it lacked the grittiness Bosch. These are usually considered men's books but I find them much more interesting than the romance genre.
Bosch of course but he did a good job with the two attorneys and the judge. Hill's skill at narrating can't be beat. I hope he narrates all of these books.
Yes. I had read most of the later books but had not read Books 1-6 so I got the first two and the the next three. I've niw read or listened to them all. I got so,hooked that I read the next parts on my Kindle when I went to bed.
Love all of these books. I hate that Harry is aging but I'm thrilled that there is a TV series due soon. I had the privilege to review the pilot. Harry is now immortalized.
great story. i can't stop listening.
awesome voice. lures you in.
i love Harry Bosch. i kinda wanna have a beer with him and talk. he's dark and alone, but tough. he's kinda sad, but man is he a good detective. ok, i'm hooked on this series.
It's difficult to criticize Dick Hill. He's really good, an excellent voice actor. But many things that make him a good actor--swallowing hesitantly during a line of dialogue, little mouth sounds during pauses, things that people do in real life and make a role believable--work during an hour-long play, but become bothersome over the course of a number of hours. Connelly does a good job of directing the listener toward, then away, then toward plot lines and potential villains. The story is thoroughly entertaining and I would have given this more stars except for the bothersome tics in narration.
As I reread this series I am simply amazed at how great they are!!! Harry Bosch and Dick Hill make this one of the best series on the market... IMHO you can't be a fan of this genre and not enjoy this series... Narration is the best!
Very enjoyable !
Love this narrator for this series , he draws you in and you never leave !
Very good listen. I had a hard time leaving this to sleep or do errands .. But was worth the time . Another good Harry Bosch book
This series definitely grows on you. It doesn't immediately stand out from the crowd, but eventually you realise that these are well-written books that take a while to sink in.
Yes it is, at least for me.
It was only the third and there are several more to com.
He does a good job.
Concrete Blonde would be OK even for a film
As usual, a forced "Conelly ending"
Connelly has excelled himself with this stunning, suspense murder mystery with more twists & turns than the track to Everest's summit.
Dick Hill's narration is flawless. It's almost like a 'production' with a full cast, rather than a narration. Start listening now!
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.
