I have read all the Harry Bosch/Lincoln Lawyer books now and have never been disappointed. Connelly has an amazing mind to be able to come up with such intricate and fascinating ideas.
Mr. Connelly is a brilliant author. This book is another fine example of his writing skills. I have listened to all his books ( some more than once) and love every single one of them. My only disappointment with this book was Mr. Connelly’s not so subtle attempt to get with the times and join the virtue signaling crowd. I always loved his accurate descriptions of police realities and procedures. It often showed the good, the bad, and the ugly of humanity. There were good cops, lazy cops, burned out cops and yes, cops who were criminals. He always stayed away from politics. This book, in my opinion, is different. Twice in one book Bosh saves people who were set up by cops. During the main investigation and the investigation into Mickey’s employee’s juvenile nephew who was wrongfully arrested for shooting a cop. It made it appear as if it was an everyday occurrence in law enforcement . Even if it is what a large part of our society believes today, I find it curious that now, for the first time in 30 years, the writer decided to touch on police criminal corruptions. Especially since he saw how police operated back in the 80s and 90s when he was a crime reporter.
Then, Bosh feels sorry for ruining a man’s life for sending him to prison for selling drugs in a school zone. Which is something that wouldn’t even be a crime today because California decriminalized marijuana. It appears the writer assumes that an old-school cop would agree with the recent changes in drug laws, would be fine with people slinging dope around schools, and would spend his days regretting his old drug arrests. This is hard to believe and looks more like writer’s personal feelings. All while Bosh calls an ex-president a criminal and Mickey complains about the current Supreme Court that is moving the country backwards vs previous Courts that moved the country forward. Like I said before, still loved the book and still love the writer. Only wish he would leave the political stuff to CNN and Fox.
Great plots and wonderful storytelling.
Excellent story. It foretells an evolution in the storyline of The main characters. I look forward to future stories.
If only the author ould quit dropping a flow interrupting political opinion in the middle of the story...
I've read them all. This is the first time I purchased an audio book. Loved it!
Great, love the Lincoln Lawyer Narrator.
One of the best books I’ve heard in awhile! Fantastic!!
