Brilliant Book.

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 28-12-10

This story was very well thought-out, good delivery and excellent narration. Characterisations were better than most in this genre.

Looked for more by this author but nothing yet . . .

Not The Best

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 15-11-10

The story was predictable, lengthy and highly unlikely. The only saving grace was the author's ability to portray the characters. I didn't like the main character but really felt like I knew him.

Bosch without the cliche

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-11-09

I have enjoyed following the Bosch books as Connelly has managed to make homicide interesting without having to get too gory or disturbing. Although the cliches and stereotypes can be a little cringe-worthy and the huge leaps of deductive reasoning a bit too much of a stretch.

However, in this book we are spared the cliches and altogether the investigation unfolds well. The plot becomes complex and intricate before it all unravels to reveal a conclusion to the case.

Apart from a bland storyline that's hard to follow, there was no character development at all. I couldn't muster any empathy for any of the characters, it was more of a plot plan than a novel. Well read, though.
