I enjoyed this story. It was an interesting and clever story and the narrator did an excellent job. It was a real page turner for me.
This book is great. I listen on my way to and from work on my long commute. I actually enjoyed my drive to work since it gave me time to listen to it. Worth your time!
I am a great fan of Connelly's writing but this novel didn't translate well for me in an audio adaptation. It dragged on and on. Perhaps in an abridged version, the mystery would be more fast paced. I was also disapointed in the narration. I could not "hear" Len Cariou as the voice of Harry Bosch. This won't keep me from trying another Connelly mystery but I'll definitely choose an abridged version.
I've read all of Michael Connelly's books and enjoy the non-Bosch ("The Poet", "Chasing the Dime") books best. But that doesn't mean that these aren't good. Harry is aging realistically, if not gracefully, but he isn't ready to be turned out to pasture. His return to the LAPD after three years of retirement lands him in the "open/unsolved" unit, and he investigates a cold case involving spoiled teens, racial disharmony, grieving parents, insider coverups and a young girl's diary. The reader does a competent, comfortable job.
I am a fan of both author and reader, but this one started slow and did not pick up until the last two hours. Worth a listen, but can only give a three star.
Harry Bosch is back in another pretty entertaining book. His teamwork while back in the scene is great but Connelly overdid the bit about Irving in my mind.
I recommend this book if you know Harry from the previous books ... actually a must read if you have read him before.
