I definitely liked this book and liked the references to actual art work. There were times I was rasing my eyebrows at the actions of the characters....and part of the ending had a bit of wierdness to it by the main character... but I enjoyed the book and am glad I downloaded it.
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!
Another very enjoyable Harry Bosch book. The narrator did a good job and made the charaters real.
Dick Hill, enough said.
Dick Hill. The reason I started this series was the narration of Dick Hill.
Most of them except Bosch and the bad guy.
Terribly disappointed in this one. Narrator and storyline makes me very leery in continuing the series.
As a Connelly fan, this is not the book you want to start the Harry Bosch series with! Thank God I had listened to the first six books which are fantastic and the narration superbly done mostly by Dick Hill. Since I paid for it I listened till the bitter end. Hope Connelly listens to his fans and has Hill narrate the rest of his books with audible!
This title seemed to be well recommended, but in the end, it was a big disapointment. The characters had little depth. Initially, it seemed promising, but it felt like you were listening to a reading of a Columbo episode that was 11 1/2 hours too long. The story really had no hook for the listener, and the reader didn't help anything either.
How did Terry McCaleb, who was so smart a character in "Blood Work," turn into such a dummy? No good reason. This book is just annoying. Readers know that Harry Bosch is not a serial killer. Period. Wasting more than half the book while McCaleb chases down phony and unbelievable clues pointing to Bosch is dead weight on the narrative. It's a lot of nothing-happening. Plus, the narrator sucks, especially with women, whom he casts as shrill and overwrought. Of course, this being a Connelly book, it's well-written. In this case, that's not nearly enough.
