If you love Kellerman's Alex Delaware books you will love this one as well. It is well written and enjoyable. You can read Kellerman's book out of order and enjoy them but I prefer to read them in the order they were written.
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.
