Yes. A better editor perhaps. There were glaring weak points I would've like it better without.
Of course. I like his work generally.
Harry is a little bit forced. If you like your cops jaded and willing to rough up suspects without remorse to get results, Harry is your man. It bothered me that when he is suspected of planting evidence everyone was so surprised, though. I think now my difficulty finishing this one is the rampant corruption everywhere. I think I fear reality is really like this and it breaks my heart.
While I really enjoy the cases, I love the way each book delves into the life of Harry more. He feels like a real person - so many details, and realistic behaviors... Ver well planned and written.
Yes, if you are a fan of Harry Bosch, you would love this book. It is full of his character and style of investigation.
I am always a fan of Michael Connelly, especially of detective Bosch series. I have not yet found one that I didn't like. Great story and the characters.
Love it and his voice fits with all the characters that he developed in this book.
I loved Harry...such a tortured soul.
I love listening to Dick Hill. His voice is so soothing and easy on the ear.
This is my favorite Bosch except for Echo Park. Good story, great characters. Dick Hill, the narrator, personifies Bosch for me. I think he is an amazing actor and he really *makes* the book. I wish he narrated all of the books in the series....
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Hmmmm…. Connelly has braided a lace-like plot… No… no… that’s too delicate, even though it captures the complexity… Connelly has woven a net-like plot… Yeah, that’s manly enough but misses the continual twists and whorls. Okay… suppose you had cigar stained lace… used for a whiskey coaster… You know strong stuff, maybe bourbon.
Anyway… The story twists but the ends all align and the characters each fit into the design – net-captured, y’know what I’m sayin’? And Dick Hill creates the ensemble so that they swagger around in … in… Ahah! Knit the lace out of tough netting, riddle it with a stray bullet, and color the thing dark bloody noir. And if that’s what you want from a hard-boiled Harry Bosch novel… Get this one. It’ll tie up your imagination :-)
One of the guidelines for writing a review is NO "Harsh, profane or discriminatory language." But this book is full of that language. I'm not a prude but this book doesn't come close to being as interesting as "City of Bones". In my estimation it makes Susie Bright appear to be a Sunday School teacher by comparison. Maybe that's why the lower price at introduction?
It is close to being that, but just didn't quite make it for me. I loved the previous mystery, but this one kept nagging at me -- specifically with the improbable and perhaps not so fully understood -- reunion with a woman he had known five years ago. I kept thinking she was in on the whole thing. Heck, maybe in a subsequent book, I'll find out she was. I couldn't quite focus on this. I listen through the night due to physical huge injury that keeps me waking up. This book just didn't motivate me to back up my mp3 player and find the right place to continue listening. I think I heard it all, but sigh, I felt that the end was impossible, even though it is a mystery and the ending is to be unexpected. I wanted the next book to pick up where Coyote left off. I guess I need to take a small break from Connelly. I'll be back though, because I know of noone else that provides such a good character, except all those that I have already read!
"Love Michael Connelly's books. This is no exception. I will read the rest of the Harry Bosch books."

You think you know which way it's going, but you're wrong. Bosch repeatedly gets the carpet pulled out from underneath him, and he keeps getting up. The discouraging thing is that it takes very little effort, just moments, for the bad guys to commit some heinous crime but it takes extreme excruciating effort to bring them to justice.
