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.
Really enjoy Len Cariou's voice. Recognizable right away in whatever form.
If Connelly has more short stories - it would be great.
Len Cariou is a great narrator. These short stories were as good as I have come to expect from Michael Connelly.
Harry Bosch is one of my favorites. The short stories were just that too short & very predictable. Still they were written well just not as good as the full novel.
For those of us who can't get enough Bosch...only complaint is that it's too short! Includes a preview of his next, The Drop - which I can't wait for.
This is interesting that anyone your write this type of book. I can see this type of release before a major new book to recap all of the previous stories, a quick refresher as sort.
But just out of the blue like this, strange.
The book is fine, it just provides quick snips of the previous stories. If you just want to refresh your mind on a few books, this is fine.
I buy a lot of books and read the reviews so thought this would be good
Was greatly disappointed. And I do love the Harry B books
As always Michael Connelly does not disappoint. The only problem I have with these three unrelated cases is that they only whet my appetite for MORE HARRY. Thankfully November 28th isn't too far away
These terrific stories will hold Harry Bosch fans until the next full-length novel is released. I was delighted to see that Len Cariou had returned as narrator. This is a perfect match of material and narrator. Cariou is a little rough, and for those who like the smooth, effete banality of a Scott Brick, this won't be for you. But Cariou sounds exactly what I've always imagined Bosch would sound like — gruff and tough, no BS. The stories are of course only hors d"oeuvres but they're fun. And the best news is that Cariou reads a preview of the first couple of chapters of the next Harry Bosch book, meaning, I assume, that he will read the full novel. Can't wait. Bosch is the best continuing character ever.
