After reading several mid-series Bosch books, it was great to start at the beginning and get the full development of the character and background perspective. Wonderfully complex for the first of a series!
Didn't read the print version, so I can't compare. Mr. Hill's narration was so skillful. At this point, I'm not sure the print version would draw me in as deeply.
Harry Bosch- Although he's a loner, he's got a heart and he cares about doing the job right. He's also not one for playing politics- gotta respect that!!
I enjoyed all the characters- but Mr. Hill's performance of the secondary characters were especially good. If I HAD to pick my favorite, I'd have to say that his narration of Lt. Pounds part was especially enjoyable.
Murder, Mystery and the Ghosts of War Spark Mayhem in the Tunnels of L.A.
Absolutely. This book was well written and kept me wanting more.
Harry Bosch. He is the main character. Obviously flawed, but then who isn't.
I love books, writing, writers....these are my favorite things. I never have to stop learning! Have a lot to learn still.
so far I love all the books in the series. I love that every book is a whole story with the whole ending. no spoilers so I won't say what happens, but I love the last chapter. it made me sad broke my heart a little. generation was very very good. I do love the new narrator because he is the one who plays Boston series after all. I'm not very good at this. I have to use the speaker for most everything I say so please excuse any mistakes. I have out. Series in the thriller area. Bosch is one of them. I'm glad I read this book and I think you like it too if you like gritty cop thrillers. Good reading.
I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was very good and the plot was fast paced enough to keep me listening on my long drive across country. I am getting ready to download book 2. Way to go Michael Connelly for a good read/listen and Dick Hill for an excellent job of narrating.
thoroughly enjoyed it. Good cliff hangars at times with leaving you curious. and the narrator had good voices.
First Harry Bosch book for the series and for me. Loved it. It is a little dated, but that's okay too.
Everyone questions why Bosch is so doggedly pursuing the investigation into the death of a deadbeat. After all, it seems quite cut and dried. But the deceased is an old Army buddy of Bosch's and he finds inconsistencies at the crime scene.
What makes this so fascinating is the meaning of the title. There are actually 2 references, one current and one past, so we learn Bosch's backstory and his relationship to the dead man. This story is superbly written, and engrossing.
Dick Hill is young here so has not developed the wheezing squeezing breathing of later books, especially the Nathan McBride series. Here, he is excellent, his accents are perfect, and you can see the action in your head.
A thoroughly enjoyable listen.
