the story held my interest, but did not seem as good as other Harry Bosch stories. I found the narration difficult to listen to as the narrator would sometimes end phrases as if it was the end of a sentence then begin the remainder of the phrase like a new sentence. The intonation just seemed off in many parts of the book. I also felt his accents and attempts at female characters poorly done.
When McCaleb reveals to Winston who he suspects of the horrific murder
I have only heard the audio version, have not read the printed version
Loose ends were tied up from previous books. Laying the ground for future books.
Dont think so. Harry's voice makes him sound like a gangster, not an ole' seasoned policeman.
I was surprised at the beginning of the book and had to double check that it was a Harry Bosch book. However, I did enjoy the book. You just have to get into it for a few chapters to figure how the book is going.
This is not the Harry Boush book that you expect. The focus of the book, former FBI agent McCalab, is the real star in this book. Harry is a secondary part of the book. McCalab is from another of the series where he has received a heart and discovers people who murder for organs for transplant.
However, I feel this is one of those 'bridge books' during a series, that links and ties up ends so the next book can be written. Especially, since in future books McCalab dies under unusual circumstances and Harry solves that 'murder'. So don't be put off because this is written with McCalab as the lead story,
Story line. I want to here about Harry, not someone else
The story is not about Bosch. The reader is poor.
Lover of God, family, hard work, sports and a great book!
Michael Connelly yes, Richard Davidson no
Narration was a big part issue I had, but the story was not my favorite. It did not feel like I was ever invested into the story
My least favorite of the first 7 books. Narration had a large part but I was never very drawn in or invested into the book.
I <3 Mysteries & Thrillers Not Horror or Gore I like stories that can keep you guessing and sometimes cheering on the Genius of a Killers Mind What keeps me interested is the Role of the Person trying to track down and solve these Murderous Minds and their multi-laird personas Then and put an end to the Killers murderous plan eventually ....
the main characters
When Bosch and the Ex FBI agent squared off and Bosch confronted him to fix the trouble he made following wrong leads
I was kinda felt sad for Bosch to do what he does and then be judged wrongly and harshly by his peers
Tell us about yourself! Female, Realtor
Too many facts that were of no use. Drug out the book. Still a very good read.
Like the narrator.
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.
