    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

    This book was up to Michael Connelly's usual excellent quality and seems to open a new chapter for Harry. I was very disappointed in the narration. The narrators voice was harsh and unpleasant to listen to and his attempts to imitate womens voices, childrens voices and asian accents were just laughable. A great story but you might prefer reading this from the printed page.

    Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and to pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life exists beyond the airport.

    Story

    This story was so compelling I could not stop listening. The characters and the location were interesting and there was a good measure of humor, joy and sadness and in the end I was left with hope for the these characters if not mankind. A very good read.

    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    A sad bit not very interesting story. Her previous work was better and the main character more sympathetic.

    Turning 27 may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the midwestern United States, it is cataclysmic. Inheriting a huge expanse of land should have made him a rich and happy man; but something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he just saved, has suddenly made him - and everyone he loves - into a target.

    Overall

    Very well narrated. Interesting plot reminiscent of Terminator 2. Plot and characters were well developed. Some of the speeches tended to go on for a long time and were repititious. Overall I enjoyed listening but it was a little juvenile.
