From start to finish, City Of Bones captures your attention and doesn't let go. Connelly is the consummate weaver of mystery and suspense, but never deviates from the plausible and possible. I could not recommend it more.
Great story and narration. The problem was the music that came in over the narration at the ends of chapters. It was jarring, unnecessary, and rarely matched the current mood of the story.
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.

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.
