Description

Harry Bosch is facing the end of the line. He's been put on the DROP - Deferred Retirement Option Plan - and given three years before his retirement is enforced. Seeing the end of the mission coming, he's anxious for cases. He doesn't have to wait long.

First a cold case gets a DNA hit for a rape and murder which points the finger at a 29-year-old convicted rapist who was only eight at the time of the murder. Then a city councilman's son is found dead - fallen or pushed from a hotel window - and he insists on Bosch taking the case despite the two men's history of enmity. The cases are unrelated, but they twist around each other like the double helix of a DNA strand. One leads to the discovery of a killer operating in the city for as many as three decades; the other to a deep political conspiracy that reached back into the dark history of the police department.

Another Great Listen

Connelly you can't go wrong!
I find myself pulling over to the side of the road just to hear a bit more.
The mix of Police proceedure, Bosch's personal life wrapped up in a mystery thriller is all you could want.

The Narrator spoiled it for me!

I have read most, if not all, of Michael Connelly's Books & I was quite interested to try one as an Audiobook. Unfortunately my excitement was instantly tempered when the Narrator started!
I found Len Cariou's gravelly voice difficult to get past. His speech was at times, quite slow and reminded me of a heavy smoker! His "breathy" style was not to my liking and although the story was interesting, I did not get the best out of it.
I most certainly would not recommend this Narrator and I will stay away from any other Titles where he is involved.

Another gripping Harry Bosch saga

My addiction to Michael Connelly's books has again been satiated. Mr Cariou's raspy narration at first irritated me but within a few chapters realised that he added to my enjoyment - a great combination.

Masterful Rankin

Would you consider the audio edition of The Drop to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily. Rankin's books tend to be complicated and sometimes referring back helps.

Have you listened to any of Len Cariou’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He does an excellent Rebus

Any additional comments?

Rankin writes books that feel real. In this one I really felt authenticity of the small towns around Edinburgh.

Brilliant narration!

Would you listen to The Drop again? Why?

This is my first read from Audible, and i'm loving it! I'm hooked. Ive just checked other reads by this narrator, Len Cariou, as i love listening to him. He has the perfect pace, inflection, characterisation, and does an absolutely wonderful job. Thank you, Len.
