I thought this was a great deal -- 3 books for 1 credit.
I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy some really great stories too -- my perfect kind of mystery thriller .....good mystery, good crime solving, violent problems that arise without being gratuitous or disgusting.
Great value. I would have bought each title individually but this was a nice surprise. I can always count in Harry to have a great crime plot going on.
Very realistic. I felt as if I was following Harry around while he was doing his job.
Set of books for the price of 1 is very good. Narration was good too but wish they had multiple narrators in a set because it too much to listen to same voice thru' 3 books. I loved 'The Narrows' the most.
Looking forward to more sets like this.
Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".
I took a chance on this selection. I thought three books for one credit would just be mediocre at best. I was wrong on all counts. All the books were well written ,and built up to exciting conclusions. Police methods,procedures and jargon were well researched and accurate. Read them in order. They will have more meaning. Len Cariou was an excellent narrator . My one complaint was the music. It was intrusive, off putting and unnecessary. However, don't let that stop you, the stories are still worth your credit.
I would listen to the next in the series! It was great!
Rachel, she's smart and sexy
everything! He is Harry Bosh
Great mysteries which keep you guessing.
I picked this up as a 3 books for the price of 1. I was impressed and added Harry Bosch series to my wish list. They are true grit stories, realistic stories and he will hold your interest.
Great realism to the story lines
This kick-started my Connelly interest and I've added all his books to my wish list.
The stores were good, well written and interesting, Characters are fleshed out and given relatable personalities. Would listen to others by this author. But, the background music (cheesy, hollow) and the high school sound effects really detracted from the enjoyment of the listen.
This was a great deal on a set of solidly written mysteries. They're predictable and formulaic, but still an enjoyable read.
The narrator drove me nuts - he reads these like he's the voice-over from Dragnet. I think I'd have liked them a fair bit better if he weren't droning on so slowly that it makes Harry Bosch seem bumbling and incompetent. I was surprised to talk with some people who've read these in print and had a totally different impression of the detective.
Absolutely loved it. I am now hooked on Bosch! Look forward to all the rest in the series.
a must listen to
I bought this set and didn't realize that it is actually book 10, 12, and 13 in the series. The Narrows and Echo park are great. The Overlook is mediocre. It was worth the credit I spent on it even with one iffy book in the collection.
