    Would you consider the audio edition of The Concrete Blonde: Harry Bosch Series, Book 3 to be better than the print version?

    Yes it is, at least for me.


    What other book might you compare The Concrete Blonde: Harry Bosch Series, Book 3 to and why?

    It was only the third and there are several more to com.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He does a good job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Concrete Blonde would be OK even for a film


    Any additional comments?

    As usual, a forced "Conelly ending"

    It was my second time with him and he did it well, very well indeed.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Darkside L.A.

    Conelly is a master of unexpected endings. This one might be too unexpected in several ways.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Would you listen to The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1 again? Why?

    Who knows? Probably sometimes in the future after I've listened to further Harry Bosh stories.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    A totally different ending because reliable endings seems to be Michael Conenelly's weakpoints. My rather early guess in this book was 50 % correct.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He did it well, very well indeed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Connelly (and several other famous authors) ought to think a bit moore about how they are writing endings. A real surpise is OK but only if it is reliable and fit into the story.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Audio edition is best for me, but that's only my own opinion.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes It did because it went forward without any unnecessary parts.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, she was new for me and did a very good job, indeed.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Difficult to choose one part as everything was mixed together very well. Both the red line and the side lines fit well into the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Harlan Coben is my favorite author why I can only say that MISSING YOU must be one of his very best novels.

    Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

    Not any easy mission for her but she did her best.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Difficult question.


    Any additional comments?

    Not really. We are all different. I'm sure some listeners might like it very much and some others will agree with me.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    The genuine English style.


    What does Robert Glenister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Genuine English.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long for that, but well worth a try.

    I look forward to the next book of "Robert Galbraith" about the same characters.

    Du kom, sa han och höll upp dörren.Anna gick in, ville inte stå kvar i korridoren och riskera att någon såg henne. - Alltså, jag gör inte sånt här. Jag är lyckligt gift, vi har en dotter. Erik tittade på henne, nickade.- Okej.Han sa inget mer, försökte inte övertala henne att stanna. Anna trampade rastlöst på stället, fyllde lungorna med luft. Andningen var hackig, nästan upprörd. Erik tog ett steg mot henne.- Inga förpliktelser, sa han.Anna vred huvudet, tittade ner i golvet, kände hans hand över höften.

    Spero Lucas has a new line of work. Since he returned home after serving in Iraq, he has been doing special investigations for a defense attorney. He's good at it, and he has carved out a niche: recovering stolen property, no questions asked. His cut is 40 percent. But is any cut worth your family, your lover, your life?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story.


    What could George Pelecanos have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Written much shorter and less boring introduction.


    What didn’t you like about Dion Graham’s performance?

    Hearing him saying "said Lucas" many hundred times after short few word lines almost turned this book to a cartoon.


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

    Pelecanos use to be a good author, and I've never complained about his other books.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened and enjoyed several other George Pelecanos books but this one was different, indeed. With only a few seconds between all these "said Lucas" and "said Leo or said somebody else" was, so far, the worst performance in my opinion.
