This book was recommended to me by a good friend. He was highly complimentary and I've liked most of the Harry Bosch novels so I thought I'd give it a try. The main character in the story makes SO many stupid moves that I started getting so frustrated with him that I couldn't listen to the book for more than 20 minutes without pounding my steering wheel and screaming "NO, You idiot! Don't do that!!" The plot is good, the story is good, the narration is excellent. I give it three stars just for that. If you can handle a character that continually makes idiotic, self destructive decisions then get this book, you won't be disappointed.

I found this book very annoying. Our hero, who is supposed to be a PhD chemist, is a total idiot. He makes mistakes no person of normal intelligence would make, such as entering what is obviously a crime scene and leaving his fingerprints all over it. Would you do that? Me neither. I don't require the hero to be a genius, but I would like him to be at least one step up from a potato.

This last Conelly is kind of science-fiction where the science is boring and the fiction unbelievable. Sorry, C., this is not up to uor standards.

It is with regret that I am nearing the end of Michael Connelly’s series of Harry Bosch books. Though an octogenarian, I walk about three miles each morning – on the treadmill if it’s raining - always accompanied by my iPod. So in recent months I have looked forward to each morning’s hour or so listening to the exhilarating exploits of out of the ordinary LAPD Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch. Connelly’s first book in the series was published in the early 90s and each succeeding book reveals Bosch employing the prevailing technology as well as getting a little older, something quite unique among fictional detectives. My review therefore applies not simply to one book but to all 16 in the series. Connelly writes with knowledge, validity and authenticity. His plots turn and twist with realism and reason and I have never had the feeling of being unnecessarily sidetracked. Over the months I have made friends with the “regulars” who appear in the stories and more and more I have come to appreciate the inner feelings of our resolute and intrepid hero. Fortunately Connelly is a prolific writer. I look forward to enjoying more of his output, hopefully in the Harry Bosch genre.
