Another fine tale by author Michael Connelly.
I like the character balance of Ballard and Bosch. Look forward to what their next adventures are.
I've been a devoted reader of MC since his first book, have read each one at least once & heard all of them more than once over the many years. Michael C has done justice to all the Tunnel Rats & Vets by introducing people to these amazing men. Something about this audiobook didn't seem right to me, not the usual MC. Maybe in print I'd feel differently because one can overlook the 'he said', 'she said' each time. Audiobook I could not & became so irritated hearing 'he said', etc. every time another person was speaking. It's so obvious & goes without saying who is speaking - this is what I've never remembered of past books.
Titus Welliver is, without a doubt, the best voice personification of Bosch of all the readers. If I had to conjure a voice for Harry, Titus is it. As for Ballard...not that keen on her voice. This will not deter me from future MC books, he's still the absolute best writer of this genre, I'd bet due to his early journalist background. It pleases me when I hear young people talk about 'discovering' Connelley, they are in for a treat, especially if they go back to his first book & read the progression.
Disappointing. I love Bosch novels, can’t warm up to Ballard
Two narrators are at work here: the deep-voiced Titus Welliver and the thin, watery-voiced Christine Lakin. Neither has dynamic range. Listening to Lakin trying to give voice to Bosch is sadly comical, while Welliver's one-note interpretation is no better. Both are miscast, and the back-and-forth of their two voices only serves to break the illusion needed to carry the narrative. The more I listened, the more I was able to set this aside, but only a little. Having a man/woman approach was a good idea, but the reality falls short.
