The plot of this book kept me interested, though character development was somewhat lacking. The toothpick-chewing homicide cop was a cliche. The wrap-up regarding a few seconds that led to the killer was a bit hard to follow until the resolution.
I have to say that if I were the bereaved sister, I would probably have found this guy's overtures to the kid, along with the insistence that they should stay the night when they barely knew him, a bit creepy.
So I waited for this story to get interesting and become a thriller and it just didn't happen....I listened to like 17 out of 47 chapters and finally got tired of waiting. Maybe it becomes a thriller after that...but I got tired of waiting and stopped listening.
yes, good feeling story, that ends happily, and I fell in love with the main character.
love the scenes between him and his neighbor
yes I have, just as good as always!
it made me do both, but I don't think these were extreme
I liked this much better than the movie, because you get more of an "inside" to the story, and I always love Michael Connelly's stories
McCalab, a former type A personality agent who has since retired and is working one last case out of a sense of obligation.
A good catch.
This is not my first Michael Connely book and it will not be my last.
I listeed to this on audio and our main protagonist, the receiver of a heart of a murder victim gets tagged-along in organized crime and he takes the reader with him.
The pace is fast. The secondarycharacters cool and engaging and the little romance the book has adds to the plot.
A mustread if you love this genre!
Say something about yourself!
Great read and love Clint Eastwood but the book is always better than the movie. Just well written and keeps your attention the whole way through
Good Connelly book...a classic whodunit where the cops/FBI begin to investigate the detective. Interesting premise -- detective sleuth's his heart donor's suspicious death. I like the imagination. This is book one of several; think I'll continue.
