Summary

In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent.
Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Starting with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveals that this shooting may have been anything but random.

Read by Titus Welliver, star of the Bosch TV series.

Boring

What would have made The Burning Room better?

I love this series. I have listened to them all over and over. I don't think I'll listen to this one again. The narrator puts me to sleep. He doesn't make the story interesting at all. As an actor great as a narrator rubbish. I found the flat tone very difficult to listen too. Why wasn't this narrated by the usual people. Big mistake. It should be re done!

Would you recommend The Burning Room to your friends? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who loves the previous narrators. I would recommend reading rather than listening.

Would you be willing to try another one of Titus Welliver’s performances?

I wouldn't be willing to listen to this narrator again. His voice is to flat and doesn't get me interested in the story just puts me to sleep.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

This book left me disappointed. No even sure if I enjoyed the story or even if I heard all of it I kept falling asleep.

Any additional comments?

Please release this book again with one of the narrators you used for Harry before.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I returned the book before the end , Ill buy the paper version and finish it rather than listen to Titus

Go Harry

Loved it. Looking forward to the next adventure. Harry is such an interesting character who develops through the series.

Boring voice!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Connelly seems to have forgotten some of his previous plot points. A couple of old story lines were mentioned however not as they happened in the books. He stated that Bosch had a partner who went rogue and he had to go find him, but that was in reference to the Drug squad character who faked his own death - never Harry's partner. There were a couple of others I caught but can't remember them now. At the time though, it was disappointing to realise Connelly stuffed up on the recall of his own books.

What three words best describe Titus Welliver’s performance?

Boring, mumbling, boring

Any additional comments?

I love all the Harry Bosch books and have them all as well as the Mickey Haller audios. Some of the readers voices have annoyed me over time but this one was by far the worst. Welliver sounded bored by the story and the character, often not bothering to change his voice at all so the characters were barely distingusihable from each other. He mumbled regularly and there was one sectioned I played back 3 times and still have no idea what he said!!
