If you are looking for a light mystery that is what you will get. Characters were interesting if not exciting...... I enjoyed it, didnt love it
It is in the top 10
It engaged and did a good job of keeping you thinking. Liked how the plot developed and the ultimate ending was not obvious through out the book. Liked that the good guys won but that was not always the case.
No first one
Neither just enjoyed the plot
Retired high tech CEO who raised quarter horses, pilots his own Bonanza A36 airplane, enjoys shooting sports and spending time with his lovely wife and family
This one has some mystery mixed with a heavy dose of detective work. The hero is not your normal tough guy who can brawl with the best. So instead of looking forward to the next confrontation, your attention is held by the intricacies of the analytical skills required on the detectives part to solve the mystery. Bottom line...it was a good listen.
Intriguing Inventive Exciting
Can't think of one.
Dick Hill's narration brings a steely, determined tone to the novel that might not come through as well by my reading the book.
I listened to it in three sittings because I was so curious to know "who done it."
I would have preferred less four letter words. I did enjoy this book, though.
Would read another Connelly book, but not sure I'd like to listen to anything else narrated by Dick Hill. I like it when the narrator sounds like a real person rather than someone narrating a book. His delivery was way too dramatic for me.
I may have preferred to read this book rather than listen to it--that may have made it more enjoyable.
Much too dramatic a delivery. He sounded like he was reading rather than acting out the book. Not good with the voices either.
Yes, and I did picture Clint Eastwood as McCaleb. It read very well.
My favorite character is Terry McCaleb himself, of course. Because you're always with him, know what he's thinking, guessing his next moves. At times I felt like I was riding in the car with him on his chase for the evidence.
That would have to be Terry's sidekick, Buddy. He's irritating but also a good friend. The narrator portrayed him well.
Yes, I could have easily read it in one sitting if I had the time. I tend to
I did not read the Terry McCaleb books in series order so it gave me the background I was missing. I like him even more now.
Very different and much better then the movie. Even if you have seen the movie, you don't know how this book will end. I enjoyed it.
Best Connelly book ever! I could not stop listening to this book. Terrel MacCaleb is a retired FBI profiler who recently had a heart transplant. He gets a visitor at his boat, a woman who tells him his heart came from a murder victim. She wants him to find the killer since the police have hit a wall. He can't keep himself from feeling guilty and inserts himself into the investigation. Little does he know how connected he has been to the case all along.
The characters in this story are some of the best that Connelly has created so far. You can't help but become invested in their challenges and celebrations. The story takes some of the most unpredictable turns. When I thought I had things figured out Connelly throws me for a loop and blows my mind.
I made the mistake of watching the movie after I lstened to this. The story had been changed to actually be more predictable and the things I thought I saw coming in the book actually happened in the movie. Skip the movie, read the book.
Yet another great book by Connelly. Kept me engrossed from beginning to end and who could be better narrating than Dick Hill one of my favourites.
Long haul commuter. Audiobooks keep me from causing serious physical harm to my fellow commuters. Bless you, Audible!
I have long been a fan of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series and so was familiar with former FBI Agent Terry McCaleb. I don't know why it took me so long to get to this book. This is Michael Connelly at his best. No wonder Clint did a movie using this book as the basis, which I have not seen but will be actively looking for.
A great story with a happy ending.
