Did not care for this narrator's version of Harry. But the story was so good I had to keep going.
Voice to the characters. Personality. Excellent representation of each.
The comments about poor presentation, sound quality, and lack of good storyline almost convinced me to skip this one. So glad I didn't. I enjoyed this one the most of all.
Harry Bosch wasn't the main character in this story.
Yes, I'm sure about that.
He is far from any of my favorite narrators.
An editor ought demanded Connelly write a new story as book 7.
I got the feeling that Connelly was in short of time with this book why he used "leftowers" from some of his earlier writings.
Good story but the narration ruined it. His characters sound nothing like other Connelly novels.
His Bosch sounds ridiculous.
The story kept moving and the changes in the plot were good.
Harry is always Harry. He never knows what he really wants
Wow... The narrator is awful. All that I hear is the voice from "Frosty the Snowman."
As previously mentioned, the narrator sounds like Burl Ives from "Frosty the Snowman." Three chapters into it, I had to start over because I found myself not knowing what was going on, and that is highly unusual for me in Harry Bosch book. I've already looked ahead to the remaining Bosch series books to insure that this narrator is not used again.
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
What I liked best was that Harry Bosch had to defend himself, knowing that he had been instrumental in his own innocence. The sheriff's department has asked a retired FBI agent to assist in a character profile of a murder that had occurred two weeks ago. His profile came up with the name of Harry Bosch.
My favorite character was Terry McCaleb, the retired FBI agent, brought in to help solve the crime of murder. The sheriff''s department fired McCaleb after he stepped over the line of his duties as they had been laid out. However, this mandate did not deter him and McCaleb continued with the investigation. He was approached by Harry Bosch, who related to McCaleb that he hoped that he would stay on the case but just so McCaleb knew, he was the wrong man. McCaleb knew Bosch from the past and did reread the Murder Book which laid out what the investigation had accumulated, up to the present time. His mind was working overtime and he started looking at other clues that he had not seen before. He was able to realize that maybe he was wrong and was willing to try again. Some men would have not had the character to rise above themselves and move forward.
The narrator did well with providing me the ability to discriminate between the male character's. However, he had difficulty with the female narration. Their character's were difficult to distinguish between. The female voices steered more toward a male interpretation.
No extreme reaction but I did find the book a worthwhile read.
I hope that Terry McCaleb reappears in future Harry Bosch books. I'm glad that Michael Connelly's books have been numbered in sequential order. I've already read many of his books but out of order. There are many narrator's used from book to book. I enjoy when a series uses the same narrator. It adds more flavor to the character's and I get to know them better. I've been able to sit back and relax when I read a Connelly book because one has never disappointed me yet.
There is nothing prurient about this book, but it deals with human being as they are and not as one might find them in typical fiction. If you believe, even if you don't, that the ends justify the means....this book is a tour de force in that thorny issue. If, as a reader, you liked The Last Coyote, you'll love this offering as well. Well done Mr. Connelly, well done
