    The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.

    Overall

    I'm a big Michael Connely fan, and I found this book listenable, but a bit of a disappointment. I hated the narrator, he has a problem with his fricatives and it is very distracting. Plus he makes it all so ridiculously intense. I could have done with a bot more character development and a lot less emoting. I expected more from Harry Bosch :(

    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    Chuck says: "Great book and great narrator"
    "Gratuitous violence"
    Overall

    This book was fascinatingly bad, I hated the main character, the story was ridiculous and the violence was out of control. On the other hand I did listen till the end just to see where this train wreck of a book was going.

    In Atonement, three children lose their innocence, as the sweltering summer heat bears down on the hottest day in 1935, and their lives are changed forever. Cecilia Tallis is of England's priviledged class; Robbie Turner is the housekeeper's son. In their moment of intimate surrender, they are interrupted by Cecilia's hyperimaginative and scheming 13-year-old sister, Briony. And as chaos consumes the family, Briony commits a crime, the guilt of which she shall carry throughout her life.

    I am not the most critical reviewer and I will listen to almost anything, including books that my teenager downloads. Anyway, I had high hopes for this book, especially with all the hype about the movie. Anyway, I found the book to be a total yawn. The events of one day took half the book and by the end of that day, I didn't care about any of the characters. I almost ditched the book several times, but stuck with it. Still it is not my favorite book. I found it totally boring.

    "Fun to listen to"
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to this book. It was suspenseful and the main character was sympathetic. I was definitely looking for Stephen King escapism, which is exactly what I got.

    The narrator was enjoyable to listen to.

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    Carmela08 says: "Excellent spy tale"
    "An effort to finish"
    Overall

    This book was a disappointment to me. I found the narrator's voice annoying and whiny. I also did not find the story that compelling. I thought about abandoning the book several times, but managed to slog through to the end. I felt that the beginning, middle and end of the book had really nothing to do with each other and would not download a book by the same author or with the same narrator.
