I am only halfway through this book. I am continuing my reading (listening) only because I am DYING to find out how Adam even got into the military (with his record). My brother tried to get into the Navy in the 90's and stupidely admitted to TRYING cocaine ONCE in his life (several years prior to his application) The Navy denied his admittance. My brother is now, at age 50, completely sober, a person who tried drugs ONCE IN HIS LIFE. He is a hard-working person, contributing positively to society. Sadly, he has a minimum wage job with no health insurance. Why wasn't my brother accepted into the military when Adam was allowed into the NAVY SEALS after being a serious addict? Just sayin'
The Harry Bosch I know and love is absent from this book. The Bosch I know always bucks the system, has corrupt politicians and cops trying to bring him down, and does what is right regardless of the possible consequences. The Bosch in this book does everything "by the book". He is rather boring, but the book was good enough to finish. I think this book was written by a ghost writer. So many things from previous Bosch novels were missing. I think that the reviews trashing the narrator are a bit harsh. He has a different "style", more just reading rather than "acting". He did a fine job considering the content.
This book was offered as a special, so I bought it after reading the reviews. It is just as many people said. I couldn't keep up! The narrator is in hyper-speed! I slowed this thing down to .75 (that's point 75) on my i-phone, and other than a bit of distortion it was PERFECT :) The story was great. After all of the complaints about the narrator, I am surprised that the same person was chosen for the second book in the series. Try it, but slow it down.
I loved this book from start to finish. One of the best legal novels ever.
