I enjoyed all 3 books but I do not enjoy the music that is included. Echo Park is the best of the three.
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
Would you believe the box set was on Audible.com!? AND they were spring cleaning so bought it as Charlie and I love his books...and this was 3 in one! Especially the character of Harry Bosch! He's a really good cop who won't give up on a case even if everyone else in the department has. And don't mess with his daughter or he will 'hunt you down'!
The thing I like about Mr. Connelly's books are you can read them in any order, as they all have a beginning, murder, and an ending.
Yes but what about the back story?
The salient parts are there to add to the character of the man, so what if you know something is going to happen to the family in the future...the important thing is how Bosch is going to solve the mystery!
Yes, I do highly recommend this trio of books if you like a good mystery!
Harry Bosch is such a well-developed character that he seems like a real person whose life and past novels we can revisit like scrapbook stories. And these 3 are some of the best. The narrows has Harry and agent Rachel Walling chasing The Poet through Las Vegas and LA. Echo Park is perhaps the most intricate and best of the Bosch novels; every police procedural should be this deep (the Amazon series "Bosch" only scratches the surface of this rich storyline). This is Harry at his best. The Overlook is also a great post 9/11 read and listen but, even to serious Bosch fan, Harry's almost maniacal distrust of the FBI gets to be too much in the Overlook, with Harry endangering a federal terrorism investigation just so he can control evidence and witnesses because he doesn't want to get closed out by the feds. It all gets downright irresponsible, but readers will still enjoy the ride. Connelly is just so good at his craft; no one can touch him. And BTW I just don't get the negative comments in some reviews about Len Carriou; I listen to lots of audiobooks and Len is one of the best. So even if you read these when first published, this collection will have you binge listening and feeling like you're riding shotgun with the famous detective Heironymous Bosch. And what a ride it is.
The only drawback to this is the fact that it skips one book in sequence...but for those trying to read through all of the past Bosch books this is a very good way to use a credit - 1 credit, 3 books...can't beat that!
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
This book was very entertaining because it allowed you to get some insights into the inter agency struggles between local law enforcement(LAPD), FBI, and Homeland Security. I really enjoyed all three stories. I also like the idea of offering a box set. It allowed me to follow this author over three stories and each complemented the other. It has made me a bonafide Michael Connelly follower.
Say something about yourself!
Harry Bosch’ collection was just good. There are not masterpieces but you never get bored when listen them.
Like Harry Bosch, dealing with new technology is not my thing. Because these three books do not show up as individual books in the Ipod download finding the beginning and the correct file to start the second and third book is like solving a mystery. I have now spent a half hour trying to find Echo Park.
I enjoyed getting to know Harry Bosch in this series. Very realistic as to the trials and tribulations of the profession.
