I usually don't go in for crime mysteries too much, but Audible was having a sale so what the heck. I was not disappointed. The story is about a smart street detective and a case he works with the FBI. This detective has a past which is revealed throughout the book and it is him against the world at times. It was fast paced and I enjoyed it a great deal. Dick Hill did the narration which is also a huge plus.
I liked the Bosch character who is cocky and intelligent. The storyline had enough twists that I couldn't figure out who was guilty.
Obviously Harry Bosch since the story centers around him.
Harry Bosch. I felt the female characters left a bit to be desired but I always prefer two narrators.
I did find myself listening to it while I did housework which I don't normally do.
The story takes place prior to the use of cell phones so it does take a little getting used to the detectives having to use pay phones. Us older folks remember what they are.
Love to get a book that I can't stop reading. I love page turners
Easy to listen and keeps you wanting more. MC rings you in early on in story. No wonder there are so many books in this series
The story was okay, not much new or twisty. The characters and development were okay.
There were parts that were boring and I couldn't pay attention or wanted to fast forward. The second part of the book moved along better.
He did the main character great. His female voice was weak. He did very good as a narrator with the story.
It was on sale. I might try to listen to it at a later date. I doubt I will buy the book 2 in the series.
I am intrigued by Harry. He detests the bureaucratic dung heap under which he works but excels in his job despite them. So familiar.
I would recommend this to anyone who considers, or is working in, a similar environment.
The narration was good. Even the pacing was on time.
Tough as nails protagonist, Bosch, narrated by the fantastic Dick Hill. Set in a 70-80s time frame underlined by the stark absence of the forensics and spy tech prevalent in recent entertainment media. Enjoyable listen with some expected/anticipated twists and turns--insights and tie ins to Bosch's early life as a tunnel Rat in 'Nam.
tryin' to keep reviews short and relevant.
I enjoy a book that you can't determine the "who did it" half way through. This is one of those books. I was surprised and I like being surprised.
