Michael Connelly novels are a must read for me. Narrator Richard Davidson made this book unstoppable.
Absolutely. Connelly is a master a writing engaging storyline that guessing at every turn.
I love audio because I am able to remain busy with tasks and still keep up with m reading.
I really like the weaving in of characters.
He is not Dick Hill.
No I did enjoy this book. However, not as much as lone wolf.
more McCaleb than Bosch
How the story twisted...Bosch was not a leading character
Good Cop...Bad Cop
The book has more FBI Agent Terry McCaleb than Bosch and McCaleb is the pivotal character. The narrator (Davidson) does a far better job with McCaleb than Bosch--he makes Bosch sound older and grumpier than he is while McCaleb is crisp and competent. I prefer Cariou or Dick Hill as a narrator.
Engaging story! I enjoyed Mr. Connelly's plot twist of making Harry the suspect. However, Mr. Davidson's narration left me cold. It was very hard to listen to, particularly after listening to Dick Hill's excellent work on the prior books. Midway throught the story, I was ready to check the book out of the library to finish the book! I hope the next book is an improvement.
The story was good but it didn't keep me on the edge of my seat. I love Harry Bosch. He is a great character. I was disappointed by the way this reader portrayed him. He gave me the impression that Harry was this gruff, unfeeling cop. I've always felt Harry was very private, quiet and even a bit shy in certain situations. That is what gives him his charm. He is sensitive and kind and is always determined to get the bad guy. I will continue to read Michael Connelly. He is one of my favorite authors. This book just wasn't his best. I really think Richard Davidson ruined it for me. I may have had a different opinion if I had read it myself.
The usual intrigue. A good listen. The story keeps you listening an makes you think.
Harry Bosch of course!!
Intriguing, murder mystery.
Another powerful book from Michael Connelly up there with his best. Really enjoyable. This book pairs two of Michael Connelly detectives from previous books Terry McCaleb and Bosch. I have never read a Terry McCaleb book before and quite enjoyed his character in this book, the Bosch character was great, but took a bit of a back seat to Terry in this book.
This book has plenty of twists and turns and stays a bit more believable than most of Mr Connolly's books. I think this is a must listen for Michael Connelly fans, but I would suggest listening to the early books in the Bosch series first.
The Narrator was a bit of a mixed bag, I almost skipped this book based on some of the reviews in relation to this narrator, however the book is so good I am so glad I took the gamble. After listening to other Narrators in the Bosch series, he initially sounded all wrong and grated on me for the first hour or so, then I got used to him. I found the Narrator's performance of Bosch very irritating at first, the narrator makes Bosch sound as if he is 70.
However after the first hour or so the irritations went away and I started to enjoy the narrator's ability to help build the suspense and his more precise pronunciation in places. He will never be my favourite Narrator but I don't think it is worth skipping this book based on his narration.
Great Book. We need More books like this one. The read was great but I wished they would of used the same one for all Mr. Connelly Books
Plot paired with history&science about real H Bosch is interesting, but characters are very shallow. Especially Graciela, who would protect her husband from everything, even from doing his job and having fun (hey, some people might have fun to work as investigaters).
To make it worse, the narrator completely reversed the age of people. The voice of Bosch is like the oldest man in the Universe. Tired. Me too.
