The plot was ok. Although I finished the story in 4 days, it did not leave me longing for another McCaleb story. Perhaps I am evaluating the story thinking that this character will evolve into a series. And the fact that McCaleb is in no physical condition to pursue detective work might have lead me to such a conclusion.
Another Michael Connelly masterpiece! Dick Hill does a great job of narration. I like these stories so much I listen to them and then read the books.
This was great! It was a good ole' suspenseful story that was not cluttered up with unnecessary boring details. I always suspect the writers that do that suffer from an overblown feeling of importance or worth, or are filling up pages to compensate for a not so great story.... Anyway, this one had enough to enhance the story, not detract from it.
Connelly has mastered making a book unique. characters are great, plot is the focus and always changing. Part of the story was predictable but not every twist. Connelly is consistently good and coupled with great narration. Solid 5 star book. Well worth the credit.
With almost 800 books in my library, I am an experienced listener. I appreciate a well written good story. I am pretty critical of trash.
I have enjoyed many of Michael Connelly's books. I listened to the whole thing because I had it, must have bought it on a sale. I was also out of credits and desperate. It was just that ---tedious. nothing to really engage with. Dick Hill as the narrator doesn't help. his voice while great for many leading men characters, added a terseness that contributed to the tedium. I have said this before and will say it again. Dick Hill destroys women characters. He has no ability to give women voices other than insipid and weak.
There are other Michael Connelly books out there that are more entertaining. I would skip this one.
