Enjoying one good listen after the next!
Great narration! Great story! Truly and intriguing plot and story line. Characters were fully developed and relatable. Loved this book -- my first by Michael Connelly and my first McCaleb! Wanting more!
This was an entertaining book, we'll read by Dick Hill. There were enough twists and turns to keeping you guessing, though I did figure it out before the reveal. What I really liked about this story was the realism of the investigation. It was logical and appropriate. I suspect real cops would like the way the pieces are assembled one by one.
As a physician, I enjoy reading mysteries with medical themes even though The scientific errors can be irritating. This book, while a bit sappy and predictable in the romance area, is otherwise suspenseful and entertaining. The performance is excellent.
Not a bad read just wasn't my favorite. The angst surrounding McKaleb and Graciela slowed the book down. Found myself tuning out during those extended portions.
The detective work in this book was excellent. the search to find out why people were being murdered, who did it and why was first rate.Like any book of this genre, the evidence is there. The reader and the detective just need to figure it out and put the pieces together. The evidence was hiding in plain sight, but the picture it presented was anything but clear. The journey to the solution was arduous but the destination was well worth the effort, and tied everything together beautifully. The story was compelling though parts of it were a little hokie. I thought the relationship between McCaleb and the sister and her little boy was strained and not very believable.
He was able to convey the characters and the situations clearly and in a believable manner.
I don't like to read "spoiler" reviews, so I don't write them.
This was a good read with lots of twists and turns and a truly evil (if not always believable) master villain. Very entertaining!
Connelly is brilliant in this earlier novel. I wish there had been more with this character in future novels.
Keeps you guessing and has you rooting for the good guy. Definitely worth the listen.
Dick Hill is good. Lots of inflection, and his various throat noises are hilarious at times. Not that they maybe should be...
Saw the movie a couple of decades ago. The book is even better. (Isn't that what they always say?). Very solid story, well-written, engaging, great narration.
