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.
This book has everything you'd want from an audible book. Good characters, engrossing story, and good narration. Michael Connelly writes consistently good books. Sometimes I just use audible books to pass the time while driving to work. This one I was looking for excuses to get a few more minutes with the book. I highly recommend it.
Even though I was able to guess the link early on, it was generally enjoyable getting there.
Not one of my favorite books, it didn't show Bosch in a very favorable light. I'm not that crazy about Terry McCaleb, either. But all in all, it was a good book.
Michael Connelly shows in this book he is the master of suspense. From the first minute listened he captures you, all the way to the last minute. Not great literature, but he balances the story well, and does not branch out in florid language like many modern authors who seem to have forgotten the delete buttom on their keyboard. The story is told in short sentences and is brought forward by each new turn of events.
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
Story was pretty good but there was a lot of over explaining the details. The main character would come to some conclusions and then repeat everything to other characters. It got a bit slow during those parts but otherwise if was good.
We love Harry, but this book was too long and too convoluted, especially as an audiobook. We listened to this as we traveled to Florida from NH, starting it the second day, and didn't finish it before we arrived. Once there, it took us nearly four weeks of 20 minute "listens" enroute to somewhere to finish it. Don't get me wrong -- we both love Connelly's Harry books; we just might consider the length before purchasing next time. A "read" might be better than a "listen."
