  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    Story
    (1624)

    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.

    Amazon Customer says: "Disappointing"
    "Another easy read from a master author."

    If you could sum up The Black Box in three words, what would they be?

    "Hooked" opening book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Black Box?

    Nothing in particular. Simply another of Michael Connelly's well written, easy reads, that hooks you from the first page.


    Which character – as performed by Michael McConnohie – was your favorite?

    Harry Bosch


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

    Yes, but based on length, it took two.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm waiting for the next, either Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller.

    Stone Barrington is called to Bel-Air to oversee an exclusive event that will gather the top echelons of the beau monde: Hollywood starlets, socialites, politicos, billionaires from overseas. It’s a task in which Stone has a personal stake, and one that is made all the more pleasurable - though somewhat more complicated - with the arrivals of two beautiful women with whom he’s intimately acquainted. But the grand occasion has also attracted a dangerous criminal group with sinister plans....

    What would have made Severe Clear better?

    Get to the meat of the story


    Has Severe Clear turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tony Roberts?

    Roberts is OK, but just average


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

    Once he got to the story, it was fine.

    For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights move­ment - which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors. It took the O. J. Simpson verdict - the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers - to shut down the white guilt bank.

    Philip Busch says: "Ann knows how to deliver"
    "Coulter loads up on references. Great preperation."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mugged to be better than the print version?

    Not better. The printed version has all the footnotes.


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

    This isn't a story.


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

    Her delivery of humor.


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

    Not film material; ionly a documentary.


    Any additional comments?

    Tyopical, well reasarched book by Ann Coulter. That's why those who dispise her can't criticize content. A super historain.

    Somewhere, deep inside the United States government, is a deadly list. Members of Congress never get to see it and only the president has the final say over it. Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off - until you're dead. Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name to the list. Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him and why they want him out of the way.

    Where does Black List rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10%. I have read over 2,000 going back to cassettes and this fairs very well.


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

    Interested, but not on the edge of my seat. None do that to me, but some are good enough to draw me back immediately after I deal with an interruption. This book had that quality.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't say that I had a favorite "scene".


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

    No, because it is too long. However, I listened to it mostly while spending an entire day, trimmimg trees and mowing grass. Saturday and Sunday, with some interruptions was all that was needed to listen to the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to a few Brad Thor books. He is consistently good.

    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Wendy S. Ohl says: "Good story, hard to listen to"
    "Ford County: Stories (Unabridged)"."
    Overall

    Just not up to par. He needs to stay within his legal backgound. It seems like each time he deviates, he produces OK, but not really good work.
