Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
No, as I have dozens of new listens to enjoy. This book started out at a fairly fast pace, and if you listen with the new 1.25x speed, the author intent is achieved.
Harry steals the show as author planned.
When Harry gets the drop on I.A.D.
thank you audible for the First in a Series sale. This book along with 3 other authors have given me lots of great listening time as well as introduce me to new authors. Scott Brick, I discovered and Dick Hill always does a wonderful professional job. He is Harry
Was an interesting story, not best Bosch ever, but good. Problem was that the narrator made the female lead sound like an old lady, when she was supposed to be a hot attractive babe. This book really needed a co-narrator to play the female parts, especially the lead.
Close, but not quite the edge
Only if he wasn't reading women's parts
After watching the Bosch television series I decided to start reading these. I loved the character of Harry Bosch. The book was an easy listen and kept my attention to the end.
There were enough to twists and turns to keep me engaged and didn't give up the end too soon.
I listened to this book on the way to work and going home and enjoyed it thoroughly. I had watched Bosch on Netflix but actually enjoyed this more. Good story, good presentation. I will buy the next one soon.
I love mysteries--especially those like John Grisham and Michael Connelly. Not really into horror or scary thrillers.
I'm addicted to Harry Bosch--this was just another great book in a long list of Harry Bosch titles!
I would prefer a women reading female parts. Males trying to read Female parts tend to sound like feminine men.
Good story. especially pertaining to Vietnam War veterans and their post-war struggles. Written before cell phones, so a bit hard to hear about pay phones!
I love crime novels and this book did not disappoint me. I felt like I was the investigating detective and was figuring out who the suspects were right along with Bosch. Each time I made a prediction on the story or decided who was responsible for what, I was proven right. I like how Connelly kept me intrigued and engaged in the story so much so that I couldn't wait to return to the book to continue listening. I was hooked and when it turne dout I was right about who the suspects were I was elated because it felt so real, like I was actually solving one of my real life cases. LOVED IT!
This was my first so I have nothing to compare it too.
Most definitely. Sometimes I sat in my car listening after I got to my destination because I had to know what was going to happen. LOL
If all of Connelly's books are this good I'm a fan for life. I even watch the Bosch TV series.
This is an excellent and well written book. Michael Connelly is a brilliant author, he can do no wrong. I was hanging on Dick Hill's every word. This man could read the active ingredients on a box of chalk and make it sound good. His narration effortlessly guided you through each gripping word as if you were there. I found myself being just as annoyed by Lewis & Clark as Harry (Hieronymus) Bosch was. Cool name. There was corruption, murder, theft and mystery. There was also sex, but the author wrote it in very tastefully that it could be rated PG but would also have you reaching for a smoke. Well done Michael Connelly I have yet to read one of your books that I didn't like, and as for your choice in narrators EXCELLENT!!!
Well worth reading and the audio book better than most. Highly recommended by those that enjoy reading and then listening to an audio performance. As a writer it adds an additional perspective. Enjoy!
