Michael Connelly is a very good writer and this is another very good book by him. Have never been disappointed by this writer.
I have read a few Michael Connelly novels in the past, and each disappointed me. The plot of Blood Work intrigued me, and I gave this author one more try. I'm glad I did. I enjoyed this book from the start. It has mystery, action, love, and characters I could love and hate. The basic plot is that a retired FBI agent is looking for the killer of the woman who had donated his heart. This story was easy to follow and well paced. The reader was great. Only the ending fell a little short in my estimation. This was a story I did not want to put down. It's one of the best of the crime/mystery genre I have listened to.
Yes Michael Connelly is a good author and I like his legal thrillers more than the police procedurals
The story has a good and original base narrative - how people respond in an emotional sense to heart transplants
Hill gave a good performance
This title is starting to show its age for a police procedural - the power of internet searches, cracking into hospital data bases etc doesn't seem so scary smart or original these days - although it was at the time of writing. There isn't enough in the character development to carry the book over this hurdle of reliance on the newness ( at the time) of internet technology for a key line of surprise and excitement.
Great story, you get to love this characters. Great twists and turns... you will never know where the story is going, and you are going to laugh and smile alone each time this happen.
Say something about yourself!
I would place it in the top 5 of the more than 60 audio books I've read.
The discovery of the fingerprints.
I look up books read by Dick Hill before I look for authors.
Here's a story that you'll enjoy more than once! Moves fast, but carries enough detail to keep the listener guessing.
Ex-FBI agent gets a heart transplant, only it turns out to be from a woman who was murdered and he feels obligated to find her killer. The plot twists right at the very end are common for this kind of story (and in Connelly’s other books), but the twists before then were very good and had me guessing. The book is far better than the Clint Eastwood movie, to which it bares little resemblance. If there’s a problem with the book, it’s that the main character is generic. He’s basically Harry Bosch from Connelly’s other books and has no personality that comes out. Maybe that’s OK because the plot and the feelings of obligation (toward many different things) are what’s key here. Frankly, I loved it and raced through it.
And I think Dick Hill is my preferred narrator for all Michael Connelly books.
The whole book was good.
Author makes you feel like you are living the book
Has a great voice
The story was unpredicatable, the characters well developed. I enjoyed the portrayal of Terry. Not so sure (as a nurse) what his temperature changes had to do with his heart conditions... but that's just a technical flaw. Good listen.
