A different narrator and a better story line
Vince Flynn's "The Last Man"
Monotonic voice, much like someone reading to a classroom with no feeling or emotion
I stopped after one hour so I can not answer
I bought this based on the high count of 4 star ratings. I am obviously in the minority.
Yes, in fact this is the first book by Nora Roberts that I have not enjoyed.
The book felt like it was being forced to completion. I finished it because Nora Roberts wrote it, otherwise I would have stopped after the first hour.
Yes, in fact I kept listening because the narration was good enough to make me think the story would get better.
The story concept certainly had merit, but the ghost seemed to be an after thought.
I bought this for my wife thinking this would be a good introduction to audio books. She stopped listening after the first hour.
After reading Whiskey Sour, and getting to know 'Jack' Daniels, it was an easy choice to purchase the other seven books in the series. Excellent story with a great job of reading by Dick Hill and Susie Breck.
Until the final chapters this was a 5 star book. In fact, I was already putting it at the top of my Connelly favorites. But, in my opinion, as Bosh was rushing to catch the prison bus his personality seemed to begin changing and he suddenly decided, the creep child molester had to be saved and tried in a court of law. Justice must be served.
Absolutely, I have listened to, or read, every Harry Bosh book. You don't drop an old friend over one disapointing story. I just felt there was a better choice of endings that would have been more in line with Bosh's personality. It seems todays society is full of bad guys getting away with all sorts of crimes through slick attorneys showing how they can beat the system. The worst of which involves child abuse. Casey Anthony for example. I simply can not believe Bosh would have rushed that hard to take a chance on justice NOT being served. Let the victim get justice for himself and indirectly get justice for all the other victim's, then let him be tried, and finally let the reader decide...
Len Cariou was excellent in the work he did with all the characters
Seeing 4 plus stars makes it clear I'm basically alone with my opinion, so I'll just wait and look forward to Bosh getting a chance to make up for The Drop in book 18.
