Nice book to listen to. Good narrator. Pretty good story. A little contrived, but it's mostly fun.
This book will keep your interest and the time flies by. Harry Bosch has his usual personality and attention to detail. It's a real good read.
I gort this book based on the hight reader ratings, but it is just not to my taste. I got about half way throught the first half and lost interest. The writing was OK and the reader was not objectionable, but I did not care about the charecters at all and it did not hold my interest.
too much use of the f word.............guess that's how cops talk???? but it did have a good story line and kept my attention
Another excellent and well paced thriller from Michael Connelly which translates very well to an audiobook. First class narration. Strongly recommended.
"A little predictable"
A comfortable fairly predictable detective book. I did enjoy it, but didn't find it gripping, and the end was dragged out a bit. I thought the ending was a bit guessable too.
"Harry Bosch Black Echo"
The Harry Bosch Series does it again ,I finally got my iphone patched up to my car radio and this book made every journey so much easier.Dick Hill narrating is just one top guy, I actually didnt want journeys to end so I could listen even more .
The story is Michael Connelly at his best, can't wait to get the next Harry Bosch installment!
Keep it up Mickey boy!!!!
"Good cop thriller."
This novel has all the ingredients of the traditional American cop thriller. Murder, a bank job and a cop with with all the usual complex character defects we have now come to expect from this genre. Set in LA in the early 1990s with the language and gadgets of the time, this book has the feel of the great American crime novels of the 1950s.
Plenty of twists and a fast pace, it kept me entertained in every chapter of the book. Well drawn characters and decent narration, this is my first taste of the Harry Bosch novels and it will not be my last, if you like a good crime thriller, I recommend you give this novel a go.
I enjoyed listening to this .Michael Connelly book so much that i will buy more of this author.
"First in the Harry Bosch series"
I'm a sucker for the contemporary LA detective with a past. In this case the past is his experience as a Vietnam veteran which added a dimension that I particularly enjoyed. I've gone on to listen to the whole series of Harry Bosch novels so this is a great way to get yourself into a new series.
fantastic story with several twists had me gripped from the start
was well read by dick hill with all the character parts done just right
Not much - too american
The opening did not get me into the story
Just not for me
Initially I wanted to return the book, as The beginning of it was not exactly comprehensible and does not give an idea of the story to come. But if you have the same feeling, be patient - it shall come... The story, the thrill, the character of detective - everything is there.
First time for me.
Clear and with good diction.
Will definitely be following this author from now on.
