Not his best. Way too much unnecessary verbiage......therefore I did the unthinkable, I skip-read through numerous portions. Sorry!
LOVE THIS BOOK! Love the story of female detective battling her way in a man’s world. Plus her love of the ocean & her dog protecting her & running back & forth on beach barking to help her get back in. I worked late show but in nursing which can b weird too. Plus surfed w) buddies who had same kinda dog ! I’ve read all Connelly’s books plus watched show on Netflix. I wish there were 2 or 3 books a year but he’s not Patterson. I think Connelly’s books are much more interesting than Patterson (yawn) !
A true you can’t put down. Connelly creates an intriguing character in Renee Ballard. It starts quick and then the story just rolls over everything.
I've read almost all of Michael Connelly's books and have enjoyed them. This is an exception. Not worth the $15. I thought it was tedious. I didn't like Renee Ballard. She wasn't a likable or believable character. Too foul mouthed for my taste. Guess I am a sexist. Don't like that much bad language from a female. Don't think I'll be buying another Renee Ballard book.
I've read every one of Connelly's books and The Late Show is not one to miss. Read it and be amazed!
