    Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with his head in several pieces and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket.

    Disclaimer: I am a big fan of Harry Bosch serie.
    After introducing series on audible, I started to listen to it from the beginning. Although this book has all characteristics of the series (lonely wolf Harry, thrilling story, different environment), I found the plot where key part is internal politics less interesting.
    Still worth to listen, narrator is excellent.

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    A movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. In a seemingly unrelated case, a loner is murdered, leaving the sheriff's department with no clues. One unsettling revelation after another leaves a retired FBI agent and an L.A. detective thinking they've unmasked a most frightening killer with almost inconceivable calculation.

    Story

    Plot paired with history&science about real H Bosch is interesting, but characters are very shallow. Especially Graciela, who would protect her husband from everything, even from doing his job and having fun (hey, some people might have fun to work as investigaters).

    To make it worse, the narrator completely reversed the age of people. The voice of Bosch is like the oldest man in the Universe. Tired. Me too.

    As a fan of Lisa Gardner books (disclaimer!), I really enjoyed this one. I never thought about what policeman could feel after killing someone. That was an interesting psycho study. Also, the cat and mouse game and not knowing who plays which role was very interesting. Last, but not least - narrator is perfect!

At first he resists the LAPD shrink, but finally recognizes that something is troubling him and has for a long time.

    The Most Human Human is a provocative, exuberant, and profound exploration of the ways in which computers are reshaping our ideas of what it means to be human. Its starting point is the annual Turing Test, which pits artificial intelligence programs against people to determine if computers can "think". Named for computer pioneer Alan Turing, the Turing Test convenes a panel of judges who pose questions - ranging anywhere from celebrity gossip to moral conundrums - to hidden contestants in an attempt to discern which is human and which is a computer.

    It is a must read for any computer savy person. Funny but it made me think. What are the limits of computers? What the substance of human and how it could be evaluated via quick interview?

    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    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.

    After reading many Harry Bosh books, I finally got to read the first one in the serie (thanks audible for introducing it). And I love it. It's not only the crime story that makes it interesting. Trauma from the past linked to crime investigation - brilliant idea. It's a must for HB fans.

Now Cassie is returning to her old profession, taking down a money man in Vegas. But the perfect heist goes very wrong, and suddenly Cassie is on the run - with a near-psychotic Vegas "fixer" killing everyone who knew about the job.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    It's a spy-thriller, with a kind of lonely main characters. What strikes me there was the psychological image of the terrorist. Good narrator.
