This is the first book of the thrilling Harry Bosch Series. Although this book isn't my favorite of the series, it really sets you up and helps you get to know Harry and how he operates. Michael Connely is a fantastic writer who gets better and better with each book he writes! This series gets your heart pounding as Harry Bosch gets closer and closer to the killer. When the book is over, only then will you realize you were holding your breath the whole time, and you won't be able to wait to pick up the next in the series. If you are planning to read this series I suggest that you go to Michael Connelly's web site and get a list of all his books. He also has the Terry McCaleb, Jack McEvoy, Rachel Walling and Mickey Haller series that all intertwine with the Harry Bosch series. I recommend that you read the books in the order they were written because it lets you get to know and understand these characters as they will all come into contact and have relations with Harry Bocsh in the following books. Enjoy!

This is my third Connelly book,but first of the Harry Bosch series I have read.It turns out this is the first of the Bosch series Connelly wrote.I've really enjoyed all three books so far and look forward to many more. While it is true this book contains many of the common cliches of crime novels,as other reviewers have stated,they don't take away from the readers enjoyment of this book.The story and characters still come off as believable.The occasional element of humor throughout the book makes it all the more enjoyable.The scene when Harry handcuffs the two internal affairs officers to the tree had me laughing out loud.All in all a good page turner.

I loved the Lincoln Lawyer and when this book was offered for 99 cents, I eagerly bought it. I enjoyed the read, especially after reading a dreary cheap Nook book. I have already bought the second Harry Bosch book, Black Ice, and look forward to getting into that!

I found The Black Echo to be a very enjoyable and easy read. The story flowed from beginning to end with a level of detail that brought the story to life.

I bought this book because it was only 99 cents. I was pleasantly surprised at the way it kept my interest. I am going to continue to read the rest of the series.

This was my first novel by Miachel connelly. First i must say that the plot of the novel was quite good, how the seemingly disparate ends were tied up an progressed along. However, the end was not as enchanting as the beginning and middle sections of the plot. Yet, i would say that the author has done a very good job in presenting the different situations be it either at LAPD or at Vietnam tunnels. All in all both timeanc money well spent.

This was my first Harry Bosch adventure. I enjoyed the writting of the story and the character. It has led me to purchase the next one in the series.

I'm new to Michael Connelly. I thought this book was a worthwhile read...it flowed nicely, the characters were developed sufficiently, and the plot was interesting...even though you do figure out "whodunnit" before it is exposed in the story line. But that's not always a bad thing because it adds to the suspense of when the hero will learn all the facts that you've learned through the development of the story. It was also educational in that I never really knew anything that detailed about our involvement in Vietnam.

I bought this book as a 99 cent featured nook book. The reviews were great, but I cannot finish this book. It bores me to tears. I am abandoning a book for the first time ever. It's a typical who done it detective story. Very slow, unoriginal story. Not worth .99 to me.
