Finally gave up on it. I tried hard, but the snarky protagonist and his cartoonish sidekick were less than endearing. I know the whole film noir thing is supposed to be kitschy, but this was over the top. It felt like the author was phoning it in. I found myself fast forwarding through long passages of self-indulgent over description when I wasn't yelling at the narrator to get on with it already. Would have been nice if his editor had asked the author to leave a few adverbs for the other authors to play with.
Mystery is one of the worst books I have ever picked out to buy. The author should have been in Japan helping out. That makes more sense than why he stayed in the USA and decided to write a book. Take a look at this thing and see if you can find one redeeming feature in it. I would ask for my money back but Audible doesn't do that. So all of you out there in iPod land will just have to
see that this book is truly a MYSTRY.
I just couldn't get into this because the narrator had a voice that was a bit annoying for a long novel.
The narrator that reads Michael Connolly''s boxed set is fabulous. His voice reflects the feel of Harry Bosch and I could listen for hours and hours. This narrator just doesn't seem to 'fit' the way it should.
I'm glad I didn't pay for this and got it on a credit.
