As in all of Connelly's books, the conclusion becomes a page turner and the pace grows faster and faster...
Earlier narrators have done a better job with dramatic reading than this one. It is a given that a dramatic reading with several characters and different genders is difficult. Too much emphasis can make the reading obnoxious; too little make it boring. This one was not boring but was less of an intensive reading than earlier books.
Harry Bosch always will need a followup. I think I know where Connelly is going and will allow him a new main character (Bosch's daughter). I guess I identify with his age and know he is headed some sort of conclusion, a write out or down.
Connelly has toyed with redemption in many of Bosch's failures. He returns to the same aspects of his personality that harm his relationships and standing with his piers and superiors. I long for one of Connelly to pull one of his characters out of a longing life of loss into redemption of personality, history, relationships, and the soul.
I enjoy listening to the novel on the way home from work. The story is interesting and a good mystery. I am a fan of Michael Connelly and have loved almost all his novels. It is a great listen.
This book continues the fabulous seies of Harry Basch. I enjoyed it (even the change in reader) but a major problem stands out. Number one, this woman Harry is dating, who is pivotal to the story, is not his type. I do not feel comfortable with this relationship - it is phony.
Good stuff is his relationship with his daughter - real, complicated and she is not the typical teenager. Harry would not have the typical teenager. I wouldn't start the serries here but it is a great listen if you know the series.
This is great, love listening on my phone
the twist and turns
He was easy to listen to
"Hooked" opening book
Nothing in particular. Simply another of Michael Connelly's well written, easy reads, that hooks you from the first page.
Yes, but based on length, it took two.
I'm waiting for the next, either Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller.
I lost a great deal of faith in Connelly's writing. I will not read another of his Bosch series.
Don't make Bosch into a Dragnet character.
Given the text, the performance had to be flat.
Disappointment. Have I been a fool to read any Michael Connelly?
This is tired, uninspired writing and should not have been submitted by the author.
I would definitely read another Connelly book but I hope not to have to listen to McConnohie again!
Other Harry Bosch stories.
only if forced to
No, it stands on its own.
I've been a Harry Bosch fan for years and believe I have read all or most of the series. Despite some of the negative comments from others, I enjoyed this book tremendously. It may be his best yet.
Another good book about Harry. I have read them on. Keep them coming! A great series.
The procedure to putting the pieces of the crime together. Well laid out.
