Bloodwork by Michael Connely
This is one of those stories that grabs onto the reader early on, and won't let go until the last line is read or listened too in my case. To me, The murder of Gloria seemed like a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, it would never have occurred to me to think anything else. McCaleb is one of those people who has a different sense of events and possibilities. As an investigator, he comes across to the reader as very believable. I loved this book. Since I was listening to the audio version, I kept finding excuses to go out in my car and drive around, run errand and pick up the kids. Am looking forward to listening to more of Michael Connelly's works.
The audiobook I listened to was an unabridged version by Brilliance Audio. It was superbly read by Dick Hill (who I would listen to again at any time). Length is 13 hours.
Thanks to Brilliance Audio for the cover image.
