A very good listen; deftly carries on two investigations simultaneously. However, it is plain the narrator is not from Seattle.
I am a resident of the Seattle area and it is fun knowing the cities, streets and landmarks. It is disconcerting to have so many of them mispronounced and detracts from an otherwise good story. Narrators should review the locations and be more familiar with names and places.
I looked forward to this book as I am a big fan of Michael Connelly, and the reader - Scott Brick. The tale was woven in typical Connelly style with plot turns and edge of your seat suspense. I lost some sleep listening into the night to get to a point where I thought I could put it down for a few hours.
Then ... the disappointing ending. I didn't think it was up to his standards; it was too limp wristed. I will continue to read Connelly but I hope his next effort maintains excitement all the way to the end.
Welcome back Myron. A very plausible story line with all the familiar characters. Coban has opened all kinds of new possibilities with this tale which wraps up very neatly but enough doors are left open that Coban could take Myron and his friends in any number of directions. That said, I miss Jonathon Marosz. I have come to "picture" the main characters by the voice inflections of Marosz so that, while Steven Weber does a credible job, it's almost as if we have new characters.
Keep MB Sports Reps going but bring back Jonathon Marosz.
While there are many interesting and previously unknown ideas in this book, there is quite abit of editorializing by the author. Rather than reporting what most history books have omitted, intentionally or otherwise, the author has chosen, on too many occasions, to put his own interpretation on events. He also slants those opinions in ways that will make you wonder about his overall motives.
I was OK with most of the first half of the book but he lost me when he started talking about events that have occured in my lifetime and in which I played a part.
