Publisher's Summary

Harry Bosch finds himself yet again in charge of a case that no one else will touch. This time his job is to nail the killer of hot shot black lawyer Howard Elias. Elias has been found murdered on the eve of going to court on behalf of Michael Harris, a man the LAPD believes guilty of the rape and murder of a twelve-year-old girl.

Elias had let it be known that the aim of his civil case was not only to reveal the real killer but to target and bring down the racist cops who beat up his client during a violent interrogation. Now it's all down to Bosch - and he's got to take a long, hard look at some of his colleagues in a police department that is rife with suspicion and hatred.

    "Another great Harry Bosch tale"

    I love the Harry Bosch books and am currently listening to them all in order. After Dick Hill's wonderful narration on the previous books Peter Giles's takes a while to get used to. Initially it sounds like every line is being said like it's the tag line on a movie trailer but stick with it and you will get so absorbed in the story that it won't matter. I got used to the narration as the book went on and it didn't bother me after a while.
    The story is great, as they have all been so far, plenty of gritty police in fighting and intrigue as well as a case complicated enough that you won't guess the outcome straight away.
    I'm off to listen to the next one now!

    Powerful story, well read and delivered. The Prime TV version is missing so many dimensions from the Bosch character. It's such a shame.

    "Michael Connelly never fails to entertain"

    The story seemed a bit slow to start off but picked up the pace along the line. A very good listen.

    Story
    "First rate American detective murder mystey"

    This is another first class novel revolving around the LA police murder detective Harry Bosch. There was a complex plot with several twists and turns that kept you guessing, and sufficient characters to make predicting who done it difficult. The descriptions and dialogues where well-crafted and it was a “page turner”. I have read several Harry Bosch novels and he seemed a little more likeable in this one than I have sometimes felt. The narrator was excellent and he bought the story to life with consistent and appropriate voices for different characters, as well as appropriate changes of pace and nuanced tones. If forced to criticise the book, I would say that it was a little too long and maybe one or two threads of the story could have been removed to tighten it up. If you like American murder/detective mysteries then you should like this book.

    Story
    "A Rich and Convincing Plot but A Rushed Ending?"
    What made the experience of listening to Angels Flight the most enjoyable?

    The plot is absolutely excellent and just when you think you have the whole of it laid out for you ready for solving....it changes again...and again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Angels Flight?

    I liked the Police Press Conferences and the various confrontations and avoidance tactics. The political background for this novel comes into sharp focus because of the simmering possibilities of more race riots breaking out in Los Angeles.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I do as a rule really like Peter Giles's readings but unusually for him, especially in the first half of this book, he pauses in the wrong places and gives the distinct impression that he didn't rehearse the chapters first.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Can Bosh stop L.A. from burning again?


    Any additional comments?

    After the terrific build up of such a great plot I can't help feeling a bit short-changed by what I felt was an incomplete ending. One of the strands of the plot could and should have been dealt with better. This would have made it a 5 star novel without doubt. I'm still so pleased I bought it though so don't be put off.

    "A classic Bosch!"

    A gripping story with all the classic Bosch twists and turns. Kept me spellbound until the end. Very good narration.

    "really good."

    Really good story but the biggest disappointment was the change in narrator from the previous book. He's nowhere near as good and it took a long time for me to adjust.

    "Another brilliant novel in the series."

    Had me on the edge of my seat. Great plot and characters. Narration of Bosch a bit irritating at first but got used to it. Other characters voices done very well.

    "Voice of reader so low it's hard to understand."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    i can't recommend this version of Angels Flight because the reader Peter Giles has such a low voice that he is hard to understand.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I couldn't actually listen to the recording because of the reader's voice. The low voice made me really uncomfortable, plus, in my car it became unintelligible.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Giles?

    yes, definitely.

    "Another good book by Michael Conelly"

    The story line was weaker than those of Connelly's previous works. It was kind of slow in the beginning but picked up the pace toward the end.

    "Action commercial voice"

    They've changed the guy who used to read these books. This audiobook sounds like it's read by the same guy who does voiceover in action movie commercials. It's quite dreadful to listen to....

    "Fantastic read. Great twist"

    One of his best. Few twists at the end so that it's a story within a story. This is the pick of his books that I have read so far. Great read.
