It began with promise, went down hill quickly and ended abruptly. It has no substance at all.
It claims to be 3 chapters but is really 2. Chapter 3 is an excerpt of The Black Box. It's too bad that it was never finished. It might have developed into a good book.

Not if Youre a big Harry Bosh fan. This was considerably different from the Harry Bosh character. I'm not a "ghost" story reader.
Retired, avid reader for years. Like a variety of books; suspense, thrillers, espionage, sci fi, romance, books with repeat characters.
For a short book, I thought the author put a lot of thought provoking in it.
That would be OK. I felt you had to draw your own conclusions which I kinda
like things tied up neatly. But that always leaves the door open for another book. I can
see expanding the story line.
A short read is nice if you just want something quick and it won't drag on and on. I have trouble getting things done when I have trouble putting a book down, such as laundry.
This is not typical M Connelly. This clever little story combines magic and fate in a twisted story that amuses.
Yes. It is not a murder mystery, but a mystery like the magician's magic box in which a person can disappear. Mysterious safe and magical results are the keywords for this short story.
I had a short ride in the car and this was the perfect short story to entertain me while driving.
The topic was different than anything I'd read before.
Perfect to pass an hour or so. Good story, decent reader.
Not so happy with the woo-woo spooky element, however. I like Connelly's writing a lot, and David Collins was a good reader. I'd rather have had a more realistic tale, or (better) one that looked weird but was then explained naturally rather than supernaturally.
Just when the book should have gotten interesting it ended. It was like the author just decided to say "the end" because he was bored.
He did a great job, I was defiantly drawn in.
The Safe Man was a joy to listen to. It kept me on the edge of the drivers seat of my Jeep.
I missed 3 exists I was so engrossed.
The very end was great. I did not see it comming!
He keeps the listener fully envolved with the characters in the book.
How about scared!
The bok was too short.
