Publisher's Summary

The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism and brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial. The list of suspects includes half the police force. And Harry Bosch is the detective chosen to head the investigation. The political dangers of the case are huge. If it's not investigated fairly, the public outcry could make the Rodney King riots look tame. But a full investigation will take Bosch into the ugliest corners of law enforcement.

Don't miss Detective Harry Bosch on the case in these Michael Connelly crime fiction novels.

    "Angels Flight-INaudible!"

    Too bad such a good book was read so poorly. Burt's attempts to whisper is a low course voice and the way he fades away make this book INaudible. I could barely understand him while listening in my car.

    "Great book read badly"

    This was a great book when I heard it on cassette tape by another reader. Please wait until they have the unabridged version with the other reader.

    "This is just horrible"
    Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or Burt Reynolds?

    Not from Burt no!!!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Burt sounds like he is drunk or stoned. I am a fan of Connelly but the quality of this recording is so bad it's unbearable.


    Any additional comments?

    This just makes me angry, I want my money back!!!

    "Angels Flight"

    I am a lover of Michael Connelly's books but I only listened to one cd and I went some where else and bought the Unabridged version read by Dick Hill! Burt should stick to Smokey and the Bandit! His reading is boring and I restarted the cd several times and still lost intrest. I will check who reads from now on!

    "Angels Flight"

    I am a big fan of Connelly novels, and have listened to at least four of them through Audible.com. However, in the case of this audio book "Angels Flight," narrator Burt Reynolds made listening to this book pure torture! Pls get someone else to read the book.

    "don't bother"

    I have been going back and listening to all of Connelly's books. ( rate his others as 4 or 5's BUT -- this one is not the same quality -- I think it is the narrator ( really bad!), but maybe also since it is abridged, the character development doesn't show up? sound it self is also poor somehow

    Hopelessly addicted to Audio Books! I started listening as a distraction to the aggravation of driving, now I listen all the time :)

    "Good Story"

    This audiobook is typical Connelly / Harry Bosche fare. It's a good story and will keep your attention.

    I would have given it a higher rating, but the Burt Reynolds reading is uninspiring, and I would have preferred an unabridged version, if one exists.

    "Horrible narration."
    What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly???s story?

    Didn't finish the book, so I can't say anything about the story, but Audible made me rate it (above).


    Would you be willing to try another one of Burt Reynolds???s performances?

    I tried to listen to this book, but only got an hour into it and had to ditch it. I'm trying to listen to the whole Harry Bosch series in order, but I'll have to find time to actually read this one sometime. HORRIBLE narration. Reynolds is too slow, his voice is too gravelly and the inflection is bad. Nothing good to say about the narration.

    "Can't handle Burt"

    The story was good but I personally can't handle Burt Reynolds reading it. I will never listen to another one he does. The story was very good though.

    "Narrator"

    Just cannot get through this. Worst narrator ever. Maybe the book is good, I don't know... Will try to find it with another narrator.

    "Worst narration ever"

    I've listened to hundreds of audible books. This is the worst narration ever. Dull, lifeless and boring. Completely ruined what would otherwise have book a good book.

    "Excellent read"

    This was the first Harry Bosch novel I read/heard and found the writing style, pace and length of story entirely to my taste.
    The reading by Burt Reynolds is particularly good and for me set 'the voice' for the future.
    The plot is excellent and totally believable although with the story of the LA riots fading its significance is somewhat dated. Nontheless it stands on its own as a very good detective story and since reading this I have gone on to acquire all the other HB novels either in print or on audio.
