This is my 5th or 6th Michael Connelly book, with all but one being Harry Bosch novels. I love the stories: they are intriguing and tense, and keep my interest. This is the first one I've listened to by this narrator, however, and I would never buy anything he reads, again. For one, he seems to have a speech impediment that makes his 'F' and 'Th' sound like Daffy Duck. For two, it's clear he hasn't read ahead of what he is speaking. This makes his intonation awkward and stilted at best, misleading at worst. In summary, the narrator, which often can make the audible presentation, definitely "breaks" this one.
A great thriller that maintains the suspense right up until the very end. And when you think you have it figured out, there are a few more turns. Great book!
If you've ever listeded to a murder mystery, you will be able to anticipate every twist in this not very good story. When you can answer the questions posed by the main character long before the development of the plot or even before the evidence is presented, you have a poorly written murder mystery. However, other novels by this author have been very interesting and that is why I chose this one. History is not always the best predictor of the future...
This was my first Michael Connelly book and I loved it. Very suspenseful throughout the entire book! It really keeps you intrigued and the narrator does a wonderful job. I highly recommend it for those mystery lovers.
Michael Connelly remains at the top. He is consistently one of the best selling mystery authors for a reason. The narration is very good. This is how a mystery should be written with numerous twists and red herrings. Connelly is the best at describing the cop world with all the associated conflicts. Harry conducts himself beyond what most cops would do in similar situations. You must understand Harry. You must understand this is a work of fiction. I never lost interest despite having read the book a year ago. Listen to the entire book before you make judgment.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Having grew up in L.A., and working in the areas this book takes place, this book was absolutely dead on. Bosch was a bit bravado, but that's Harry. His story had me guessing who, and how. If you are a Connelly fan, or not, you'll love this book if police mysteries are your taste.
