Summary

Terry McCaleb's enforced quiet lifestyle on the island of Catalina is a far cry from the hectic excitement of his former role as an FBI profiler. However when small-time criminal Edward Gunn is found dead, McCaleb becomes embroiled in a disturbing and complex case leading him to cross the path of Harry Bosch.

This infamous detective has always teetered on the brink of darkness in order to get inside the head of the killer. Is it possible he has stepped across that finely drawn line and embraced darkness?

Simple story.....missing Bosch interaction

I enjoyed this storyline but it was lacking Bosch....Narration was fine except for Harry's voice. It was irritating and distracting. He sounded like an old drunk cowboy.

Good book but not as good as previous on in series

Good book but not as good as previous one in the series Angels Flight.
I also preferred the narrator in Angels Flight
I've only just just started reading Harry Bosch books & so far enjoying them.

Not one of his best, just OK

Narrator is not the voice of Bosch. Style of this book is good but tale's a bit weak by author's many other efforts - may be a better read than listen.

Top notch thriller.

Hard to fault. A darker side to Bosch. Can't wait for the next instalment of the series.

Excellent... again!

Any additional comments?

Having just finished the first book in this series and bought this second book straight away, it's probably not a surprise that I enjoyed it just as much. Just such a shame there aren't more in the series... yet?

Not as gripping as the preceding books but still great

Michael Connolly writes great crime novels, this is no exception. I found it not to be quite as gripping as those preceding it but enjoyed it all the same.
The narration was good if slightly monotone at times. If you live the Harry Bosch novels you will love this but if you are considering this as a way into the series definitely start at the beginning.

Terrible narrating. <br /><br />

Really good story as always but the narrator was terrible. He made Harry Bosch sound like an octogenarian with speech problems instead of a detective with a sharp mind.

Harry Bosch

Stephen Fry should read every book. I read this at night and miss bits when I fall asleep. It's fun to listen to a book that you have read a few years ago.

Terrible Narration

Lost the will to live listening to this narrator. Not engaging and gave up on the book.

Weakest book so far!

Terrible narrator, storyline is average but not enough Bosch and too much whining McCaleb! on to the next one fingers crossed!
