The author links the ancient history of the Vietnam war to the modern time. It probably happens more often than we are aware. Bosch is unrelenting. He is single minded. Like a good batter he keeps his eye on the ball. The author keeps throwing you curveballs, you think you know what's going to happen, then you swing and you miss.
Narrator did decent job although I still don't like his female intonation that is so low you cannot hear the words and lose parts of the story. Think this is more editor than narrator.
worst editing I have yet encountered on an audiobook. Hope this does not happen again.
Tell us about yourself!
I would. I didn't expect the ending the way it did. Very entertaining.
The ending was different and enjoyable. But the book kept you turning the pages.
How the author moves the main character, very smart.
I recommend this.
I became interested in this book series after watching Amazon's original tv show Bosch, which is based on the LAPD detective from these novels. The story was just as intriguing as the tv series. There were a few cliche scenes which one comes to expect from detective novels, but the story was gripping, well-paced, and highly entertaining.
Dick Hill's narration was very well done. His slightly husky voice gave the illusion of how the cigarette addicted Bosch might sound. I will say however that I thought his female voice narrations were a bit jarring and breathy.
LAPD Detective Harry Bosch runs afoul of deception, greed, love and harassment when called out on a routine drug overdose case. A very well written first novel in a series starring Harry Bosch. It has everything you would wish for in a detective story and more. Really looking forward to the rest of the series.
Brilliantly written. The author builds huge credibility for the Harry Bosch caracter.
It's a quality police procedural. No silly surprises but not predictable. It is primarily character driven though.
Brilliant - best reading I have heard for a long time.
Harry Bosch - hard boiled detective.
Worth a listen!
What a great read. I will be buying the rest of the series. I walk five a day 6 days a week. While I was listening to this book I felt like each I was only going around the block.
Kept the action going...good unexpected twists......great series. Good character portrayal and solid plot. Some edge of your seat action....
