Publisher's Summary

From the opening chapter of the electrifying Dark Harbor, one thing is clear; this is the clarion call of an exciting new talent. Highly touted debut author David Hosp crafts an engrossing novel in the tradition of John Grisham, John Sandford, and David Baldacci.

Scott Finn survived a childhood running errands for crime kingpins to become a six-figure lawyer at a prestigious Boston firm. Now the sky's the limit...until his colleague and former lover Natalie turns up dead in Boston Harbor, her heart surgically removed. She initially appears to be the seventh victim of "Little Jack", a serial killer reminiscent of Jack the Ripper. But suspicion quickly turns to Scott, who must dig deep into Natalie's life to discover the secrets she kept.

The suspense builds to a crescendo as this stunning thriller travels at breakneck speed toward a shocking conclusion.

    "not in the same league as Baldacci"

    Boring, trite and luckily was on sale for $4.95. Don't be taken in on the comparison to Baldacci.

    "Definitely Grisham Caliber"

    I have been searching for new a David Hosp audio book since I read Dark Harbor and am thrilled that he has a new one on Audible now. Can't wait to read it. You will not be disappointed in Dark Harbor. It is at the top of my all time favorite's including Grisham, Patterson, etc.

    "Disappointed"

    I'm surprised by some of the reviews on here. I was disappointed by this audible book, I found the main protagonist faintly irritating, the plot thin and obvious. Slobbish male cop teamed with beautiful female cop who's career hangs on this one case, what a cliche! Can't recommend I'm afraid.

    "Can anyone write an ending?"

    This is not a bad book for a while. It has some clunky writing (like the detectives ham fisted handling of the case and her irrational suspicion of the main character) but the big problem comes at the end. Note to authors: pitched gun battles in mythical fortresses might have been fine for 1940s comics but they are not a satisfactory ending for modern readers. Incredibly disappointing ending but it takes several hours to get to it.

    "Stupid and predictable"
    Any additional comments?

    Too many convenient coincidences. Oblivious cops. Bad guys who can be everywhere, undetected and unsuspected. A disappointment. George Guidall excellent, as always.

    Story
    "Slightly Gory but Riveting"

    The story carries you along splendidly with twists and turns along the way. There are several gory sections in the book which, if you are squeamish can be fast forwarded through. I think the main character, Finn, will be fun to follow in the author's subsequent books. I recommend this book to make a road trip fly by.

    "I already bought the sequel"

    The book started with three separate plots and sets of characters, but they soon merged in a very imaginative way. I really liked the plot, didn't guess the ending, and loved every twist all the way to the end of the book.
    Scott Finn is a great new character and I've already downloaded the next audiobook in the series.
    I know George Guidall is a great narrator - I love the way he does the Walt Longmire series, but I didn't think he was perfect for this book. The Boston setting and educated characters would have been better served with a younger, more sophisticated voice. I had to keep reminding myself not to picture them the way he made them sound.

    "New David Hosp fan"

    I didn't think anyone could be as good as the Michael Connellys, the John Grishams, or a score of my favorite authors, but I am a huge fan of David Hosp. Great character development. I really like these people and get a suprising chuckle from them. Good story with all kinds of twists and turns. George Guidall is wonderful. Look forward to the next one, hopefully soon.

    "Good Listen"

    A little predictable at times but kept me interested throughout. I liked that the "hero" was not squeaky clean as they are too often. The overall enjoyment factor was drastically elevated by George Guidall's narration. I rate it a 3.5 but rounded to 4.
