  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure. Maybe first time listener to Bo


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Connelly again?

    Yes, Connelly it a good writer.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael McConnohie’s performances?

    No.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not sure. Narrator was so bad story got lost.


    Any additional comments?

    I preordered this book from the main page, and the book listings don't show the narrators there. As such, I was unable to see who was reading this book. I didn't even bother to read the reviews because there has never been such a thing as a bad Harry Bosch novel. After 18 books,to NOT hear Dick Hill or Len Cariou was a shock. This is as bad as casting Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. I won't be pre-ordering books any more.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    What would have made A Wanted Man better?

    Not your typical action packed Reacher story. The story was long winded with little substance. I like Dick Hill but his nasally voice through the entire book was annoying an unnecessary. Child gave him an opportunity to stop but Dick missed it. This is the first Reacher book I have not liked. Heard them all. .


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Utopia by Lincoln Child


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    Yes, I like his performances.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment may be too generous.

    Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But the fun stops the day Andy's dad, Paterson, New Jersey's legendary ex-DA, drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium.

    Sophie Katz's relationship with the irresistible and occasionally insufferable P.I. Anatoly Darinsky is on the fritz when a friend recruits Sophie's investigation skills to decode her possibly two-timing husband's strange behavior. When Sophie shows up in a short, red cocktail dress and her friend's hubby winds up dead, the loveable would-be sleuth can't help but take on the job.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Two armed men board a 727 that has been all but forgotten at an airfield in Angola. Hijacking the jet, they then slit the throat of the lone crew and fly to parts unknown. The consternation is immediate, as the CIA, FBI, and other agencies race to find out what happened, in the process elbowing one another in the sides a little too vigorously. Fed up, the president of the United States turns to an outside investigator to determine the truth.

    Wayne says: "Dick Hill is the right reader; interesting story"
    "Well...."
    Overall

    I enjoyed the story. I have to say if it were not an audio book and narrated by Dick Hill, I wouldn't have gotten past the 2nd chapter.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Great Listen"
    Overall

    I've listen to almost all the Bosch books and love them. Lincoln Lawyer is right up there with them. Mickey Haller is going to be fun to follow in frture books. Gruper does a good job bringing it to life. I highly recommend it.

    FBI agent Patrick Bowers matches wits with a psychopathic genius who relishes leading his pursuers on a bloody trail of torture and dismemberment. Although Bowers can predict how the next victims will die, he’s not yet sure of the who and the when. But if he can’t stop these murders soon, he fears he or a loved one may be next.

    Loved this series and the interaction of the charactors. The narrator does a good job keeping the listener engaged. Too bad Bower is relationship challenged.
