    Inhaltsangabe

    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?

    A bit of a disappointment as a 'Harry Bosch Book'

    I'm listening to the books of the Harry Bosch series in the order which is stated here on Audible.

    I have to admit, that I am spoilt by the reading of Dick Hill, who brought the first five stories so incomparable vividly to life. Within a few minutes I was drawn into the stories without ever thinking about the reader himself. I think this is how it's supposed to be.
    Starting the 6th book, read by Peter Giles, I was a bit reluctant, as to a 'new' reader would also be able to draw me in. I was glad that he also managed to draw me in, within only a few chapters.

    The reading of Richard M Davidson was a severe setback for me, as his style of reading and especially his voicing of Harry Bosch didn't capture the 'essence' of that character as I had gotten to know it from the previous 6 books. The way he voiced Harry, I was always thinking of a grumpy old man, and until the end was always reminded about the fact, that I didn't feet at easy with this reader, thus I was never really drawn into the story.

    Another reason I didn't really got into this story, was the fact, that it felt to me, like a totally different author had written this book, than the first 6 books. For me personally this isn't a Harry Bosch book, but rather one where the character has an appearance. Much like a 'Terry McCaleb, featuring Harry Bosch' book, without knowing any of the other books with Terry McCaleb. It's not only that Harry is rather a supporting character, but also, that Harry is described from the outside. The listener doesn't get to know the inner musings of Harry to that extent, as it's the case in the previous books.

    So for me Harry felt a bit alien in this audiobook. Throughout the book I haf the feeling the story and the reader were a bit off, to really be a part of the previous books.

    Wie von Bosch Geschichten erwartet

    Recht unterhaltsam, aber teils reaktionäre und teils sexistische Ansichten, die nicht mehr ganz zeitgemäß sind.
