This is definitely a police procedural, with lots of those kinds of details. It seemed very well researched (not that I'd know). The protagonist, Harry Bosch (and the fantastic narrator, Dick Hill), really made the book for me. The mystery was pretty good. I liked the backstory of the Vietnam War.
Listened to over half of the book and didn't care how it ended. Lost interest right away. Had to listen to passages over and over and still just could not get into it. Dissapointing.
Yes, but I had a hard time not thinking about Jack Reacher with Dick Hill narrating.
Sure, good story, kind of predictable though
Again, sounded like a Jack Reacher book.
This is the first book that I have read in this series. It was great.
trying to solve the mystery of who & why
author did a great job of creating several suspicious charactors & possible motives
I can never get enough of Harry Bosch! The way Connelly portrays him is unbelievable.
He's no James Bond which is what makes him all the more lovable. He has his ups and downs and things come to him slowly at times. He's a very down to earth person and you just can't help liking him. The cases that he gets into are also very complicated that you don't want to let your concentration stray even for a second.
This is a solid Harry Bosch detective novel. I was not especially engaged in the first half, but it was good writing and the narrator was excellent, so I stuck with it. Harry was investigating the death of a fellow soldier from his tunneling division in Vietnam. He follows up on clues while being forced to work with a female FBI agent. At the same time, Harry is being investigated by internal affairs. It felt like too much of a typical police mystery which was interesting but not engaging. The second half of this picked up, and the narrator was terrific throughout. There were many twists and turns, and I liked the ending. Good action and it came together well.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
The IAD called Lewis and Clark.
Yes. Listening to Concrete Blonde at this moment.
When Lewis and Clark is tagging Harry and Harry throws something off a bridge.
Bosch is a great detective, set in his ways. Look forward to listening to more of his series.
The book had great plot twists that I did not see coming.
Harry Bosch is just learning his trade. He is honing his skills to be the worlds best detective.
This was my first one. He is a great Harry Bosch voice and does a pretty good job with all the voices.
I would suggest Harry Bosch and Mickey Holler books by Michael Connelly. The two best had both characters.
I read The Black Echo years ago. The audio version was just as good as the print.
Harry Bosch over the series grows as a character. It's nice to visit him in his early years.
First time listening to Dick Hill who did a great job with the narration.
I only wish I could have listened to it in one sitting. It was easy to pick up and listen to in ten to fifteen minute chunks.
I think I'll put listening to the whole series on my bucket list!
