Good story.

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 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.

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.

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!!!!
