Publisher's Summary

Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with his head in several pieces and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket.Years ago, Harry Bosch learned the first rule of the good cop: don't look for the facts, but the glue that holds them together. Now, Harry's making some very dangerous connections, starting with one dead cop and leading to a bloody string of murders that winds from Hollywood Boulevard's drug bazaar to the dusty back alleys south of the border and into the center of a complex and lethal game - one in which Harry is the next and likeliest victim.

Good Listen

I'm a Michael Connelly fan so I couldn't wait to listen to these first Bosch novels recently added to the Audible Library.

The first book, The Black Echo, was TERIFFIC!

This one is good, but definitely not as good as the first.

Like the first novel, there were a lot of complexities in this story, and Connelly somehow managed to tie them up nicely.

But this story simply didn't grab me like the first book and other Bosch novels.

I would rank this one in the bottom half of Connelly novels I've listened to, but the below average Connelly novel is still above average compared to other offerings.

The story is still "can't put down" at times - and a recommended listen.

Bosch is on the case, harder than ever!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, not the best Bosch, but still well worth the effort

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Got a bit slow in places but once I got into it, I got the usual Bosch rush.

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

Dick Hill is Bosch, listened to others try but dick Hill just nails Harry, bet he even looks like him!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I needed a break here and there, didn't grip me like some of the other Bosch novels, still worth the listen..

Another great book from Micheal Connolly

This book, much like Black Echo, is extremely well written and the narration is top rate... I will definately be buying the rest of the books in this series.

Black Ice - unseen brilliance

Keen fan of Hammett and Chandler and I have read many Ian Rankins, but much preferred this.
Thought it was time to try another crime author and the Harry Bosch story did not disappoint. Well read firstly, good selection of "voices" which always helps. Plot was complicated and kept on moving at a pace. To me the characters were well thought out and LA had a modern but grimy feel as portrayed by Chandler and Philip Marlowe etc.

As soon as I have written this, I will download another Michael Connelly.
