LAPD Detective Harry Bosch runs afoul of deception, greed, love and harassment when called out on a routine drug overdose case. A very well written first novel in a series starring Harry Bosch. It has everything you would wish for in a detective story and more. Really looking forward to the rest of the series.
Brilliantly written. The author builds huge credibility for the Harry Bosch caracter.
It's a quality police procedural. No silly surprises but not predictable. It is primarily character driven though.
Brilliant - best reading I have heard for a long time.
Harry Bosch - hard boiled detective.
Worth a listen!
What a great read. I will be buying the rest of the series. I walk five a day 6 days a week. While I was listening to this book I felt like each I was only going around the block.
Kept the action going...good unexpected twists......great series. Good character portrayal and solid plot. Some edge of your seat action....
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
No, as I have dozens of new listens to enjoy. This book started out at a fairly fast pace, and if you listen with the new 1.25x speed, the author intent is achieved.
Harry steals the show as author planned.
When Harry gets the drop on I.A.D.
thank you audible for the First in a Series sale. This book along with 3 other authors have given me lots of great listening time as well as introduce me to new authors. Scott Brick, I discovered and Dick Hill always does a wonderful professional job. He is Harry
Was an interesting story, not best Bosch ever, but good. Problem was that the narrator made the female lead sound like an old lady, when she was supposed to be a hot attractive babe. This book really needed a co-narrator to play the female parts, especially the lead.
Close, but not quite the edge
Only if he wasn't reading women's parts
After watching the Bosch television series I decided to start reading these. I loved the character of Harry Bosch. The book was an easy listen and kept my attention to the end.
There were enough to twists and turns to keep me engaged and didn't give up the end too soon.
I listened to this book on the way to work and going home and enjoyed it thoroughly. I had watched Bosch on Netflix but actually enjoyed this more. Good story, good presentation. I will buy the next one soon.
I love mysteries--especially those like John Grisham and Michael Connelly. Not really into horror or scary thrillers.
I'm addicted to Harry Bosch--this was just another great book in a long list of Harry Bosch titles!
I would prefer a women reading female parts. Males trying to read Female parts tend to sound like feminine men.
