I'm not a big fan of short stories but these three captured my attention and got me invested in the story. I thought they possessed enough complexity to stand alone but each could have been a subplot in a novel too.
Michael Connelly is an excellent writer and knows his subject and characters very well. Len Cariou is a great narrator for Harry Bosch books and makes them even more believable.
love the short together, they make the stories great to listen to. hope he will have more. maybe have a free book in the future.
the new part is as good as any Bosch story, just shorter. However the last 40 minutes or so was a clip from another book (The Drop) I've already listened to.
The narration in this book was just painful to listen to and I almost gave it up. The narrator faltered between words, mispronounced words and had noises at the beginning of some words. It was very distracting.
As for the series of short stories....some of them I"d swear I'd seen enacted on tv...maybe in Law and Order? In any case, they were too short even for "short" stories and left me unsatisfied.
While they are short they are good. I think some can be made into a full book but I love some of the stories going back to his partnering with Jerry. I wouldn't mind seeing a few prequel books
