Just when you think you know the ending...pow..here comes a twist. These stories are very entertaining
Suicide Run and Angle of Investigation - two short story compilations - were pointless. They are out of context timewise with the series. Each story (less than an hour each) were WAY to short to be anything but pointless.
That he would waste our time and money on these "stories."
He's a good narrator. His voices and inflection bring out the characters of the stories he does. But he could nothing to save these.
Only to convince me to never buy another short story compilation!
yes, some people like short stories.
maybe a TV series.

I was surprised it was short stories, perhaps didn't read the fine print.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
If you are short on time and just want a little filler, this is pretty good It has been well abridged and still able to get you involved
If you like Connelly, get this. The price is excellent for the value, especially if you wait for one of the half-price sales. The three stories are full-fledged Harry Bosch stories that are just solved faster than the novels — each about an hour long. The middle story includes the Terry McCaleb FBI-profiler character and brings up a topic that is also addressed in more detail in the book "A Darkness More Than Night." All that said, this collection isn't quite as good as the other Connelly short story collection called "Angle of Investigation."
Read the book description carefully! This is short!!!!! I made the mistake of thinking it was another in the Bosch series. Granted I was trying to get something quickly to listen to on a long ride... but still it was amazingly disappointing to hit the end so quickly.
The audio brings it to life.
kept me interested to the end. great characters and interaction. I feel like I know these people. I like the way they drift in and out of each others stories.
When I think of Harry B. I hear Len Cariou's voice in my head.
Tight story with each character adding to the plot. Love it all.
If you like realistic detective stories, the Harry Bosch series makes you feel like you know the characters, the usually two cases per story are easy to follow with just enough suspense to keep you reading. I would recommend that a person begin with the first book in the series and read them all, as Michael Connelly refers to and uses characters from past plots to maintain the realistic life of a detective through the people he works with and has crossed paths with during his lengthly career as a homicide detective. So, I yes, I do recommend this book and the rest of the series.
Aside from my wish that another narrator could give Harry more of the worldy and knowledeable character he is, and less gravelly geezer, I was pleasantly surprised by this group of short stories. I expected to regret the use of a credit for not fully fleshed out stories, but was very pleased to find the stories gave all the time and development needed to solve the mystery. All that was left out were the side stories of interpersonal relationships. It is a good read if you want interesting, fully-formed stories.
While on the waiting list for The Drop I decided to get my Harry Bosch fix with this collection of short stories. These were a good filler since I have missed Harry it will be great to read a Harry Bosch book not a Mickey Haller book with a cameo by Harry.
In one story there is even a nod to Terry McCaleb.
I listened to this on audio narrated by, Len Cariou who is and always will be the voice of Harry Bosch for me, however I have to say Len's age is starting to show in his voice but I wouldn't want anyone else as the voice of Harry.
