  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    Story

    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.

    Would you listen to The Black Box again? Why?

    No, I wouldn't listen to The Black Box again as once is enough for me with the chosen narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Michael McConnohie’s performance?


    Any additional comments?

    I love Harry Bosch's persistence in seeking out murderers for the sake of victims and victim's families. His fly-in-the-face of bureaucrats and politics gives him character and depth.

    Daniel Silva delivers another spectacular thriller starring Gabriel Allon, The English Girl. When a beautiful young British woman vanishes on the island of Corsica, a prime minister’s career is threatened with destruction. Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, is thrust into a game of shadows where nothing is what it seems...and where the only thing more dangerous than his enemies might be the truth.…

    What made the experience of listening to The English Girl the most enjoyable?

    There are a few unexpected twists to Gabriel's achievements that give the story good depth.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kiara has a good scope of her part as Gabriel's wife as well as a Jewess in a highly controversial place in the world of political unease. She gives great balance to Gabriel as well as his crew.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    Richard Delman says: "Mr. Coben has gotten waaaay too popular."

    Would you listen to Six Years again? Why?

    No, I wouldn't listen to Six Years again because of Scott Brick's narration. Coben's writing style is good, really nice in fact, a genre I like. But I always avoid anything narrated by SB. This time I took the plunge..and was disappointed all over again. Sorry, I won't go that route again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The six years of hope and love that never got lost.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Pick a different narrator!


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

    No, small portions please.

    Story
    (3658)

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

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

    This is a little out of the order of other Crais books but still enjoyable, all the same. The narrator did an excellent job. The story flows easily, and though it's quite easy to guess what is coming next, it has a satisfying end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Maggie best.

    A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over 2,000 miles away, in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes - much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Good plot. I always enjoy Kay Scarpetta. The story is ruined by the narration.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nasal tone, lack of good inflection.
