Publisher's Summary

The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism and brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial. The list of suspects includes half the police force. And Harry Bosch is the detective chosen to head the investigation. The political dangers of the case are huge. If it's not investigated fairly, the public outcry could make the Rodney King riots look tame. But a full investigation will take Bosch into the ugliest corners of law enforcement.
Don't miss Detective Harry Bosch on the case in these Michael Connelly crime fiction novels.

Angels Flight-INaudible!

Too bad such a good book was read so poorly. Burt's attempts to whisper is a low course voice and the way he fades away make this book INaudible. I could barely understand him while listening in my car.

Great book read badly

This was a great book when I heard it on cassette tape by another reader. Please wait until they have the unabridged version with the other reader.

Disappointed

I am an avid Michael Connelly reader/listener and have up until this particular book thoroughly enjoyed the Harry Bosch series. I felt that Burt Reynolds narration of 'Angels Flight' to be very hard work and disappointing, I struggled at the best of times to understand where the storyline was going having to repeat chapters in most cases for not being able to undstand what he was saying. The book itself still a very good read I just wish it had been read by someone else and I hope that the next book will be a better listen.

great story but Mr Reynolds ruined it!!

What would have made Angels Flight better?

Angels flight is such a great story line. I read the book years back and wanted it on audio since my eyes are failing me. Burt reynolds butchered it. Its the only way of putting it. Monotone and uninteresting and i didnt enjoying listening. I listened to the first couple of chapters since i know the story is great but still found it difficult to enjoy an action packed book told by a boring monotone voice.

What other book might you compare Angels Flight to, and why?

Lee Childs' Jack Reacher series is as gripping and exciting. Matthew Reilly with his Shane Schofield. They are all great characters, great stories, Generally well read and addictive. All of the Harry Bosh Storylines are worth listening to. It all depends on who is narating.

How could the performance have been better?

If someone other than Burt read it. I am more disapointed because he is a good actor so I expected the same quality in his narration. Other than the lack of anything in his voice, let alone excitement, etc Micheal is a great writer.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disapointment that a book as good as angels flight wasnt given the respect narratively that it deserves, frustration that i didnt know i could change it, Anger that such a good book could be butchered by such a well know "actor".

Any additional comments?

Please ask Mr reynolds to retire now. he has obviously lost his umph.......
