    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Story

    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'

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    Story

    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.

    Josie Baylor-Bates returns to the practice of criminal defense when her friend's sixteen-year-old daughter, Hannah, is arrested for the brutal slaying of her step-grandfather-a California Supreme Court justice. Although all evidence points to Hannah's guilt, her family's disturbing relations may play a more significant role than anyone could guess. As Josie unravels a circle of secrets, she discovers a shocking truth that could save her client-or destroy them all...

    Story

    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.
