Michael Connelly has another masterpiece here. Mr. Fernandez as usual gives the perfect rendition of the characters, bringing them to life.
The great relief I felt that it's a guy with a good voice who knows how to narrate this kind of book--unlike Peter Giles in Angel's Flight, the previous Bosch novel--whom I gave the worst pan I have ever given in a review on Amazon and returned my download from Audible after listening to a few paragraphs--he was that bad. I had never heard Fernandez before, but I would certainly read other books from him. He's no Dick Hill, but I actually like his voice a lot and would definitely be happy to listen to him again.
Not heard him before.
This novel is the first setting for the Bosch TV series.
This is Ezekiel my Service Dog. We Listen to books and go on walks, work in the Garden and Lawn together. We Like Thrillers / Mystery
Harry is like a dog with a bone in this book. He will not leave it alone until he has it figured out. The new Show Bosch season one is based on this book and echo park.
The story was well written. However, the narrator was annoying. Not as annoying as the previous book but still annoying due to his inflection going up creating this fake tension when there is none.
The purpose and integrity of Harry Bosch makes the story meaningful. It is a little sad of the isolated and lonely life he lives but at the same time it seems that he is content with it. Loved the series.
I like suspense, thrillers, edge of your seat books.
The narrator makes or breaks the book!! This narrator was slow and had no emotion. I listened to it at a faster speed!
I love the Harry Bosch series but this one dragged out. However I do recommend listening because critical life changes occur in Bosch's story

That it was up Laurel Canyon and involved a dog. The least interesting that the characters were a rather depressing bunch, with no real promise, and the rookie love interest gets killed off as an after thought...was Connelly bored with her?
Drama in unexpected places
The usually colorful Harry was muted, local color was lifeless to grimy. Venice, Palm Springs could have been enhanced. As for the plot line, it zigged and zagged to deadends that seemed to indicate the author was bored to tears with his story...maybe a deadline was looming and he resented it.
