A lot of famous performers are earning extra money reading books on audio, but Burt Reynolds is one of the biggest names I've run across. And he's perfect for this excellent, convoluted and disturbing thriller. L.A. detective Harry Bosch is handed a case he really doesn't want: the murder of a well-known lawyer who specialized in suing the police department. Connelly has written a series of novels about Harry Bosch, and what makes them better than a lot of similar novels is Connelly's knack for creating lifelike characters and for writing dialogue that, even on the page, rings true. In this fine audio production, Reynolds makes us almost completely forget we're listening to a made-up story, and if you're still sitting here reading this review instead of rushing out to pick up the audiobook, what's keeping you?
