Summary

Henry Pierce has a whole new life - new apartment, new telephone, new telephone number. But the first time he checks his messages, he discovers that someone had the number before him. The messages on his line are for a woman named Lilly, and she is in some kind of serious trouble.

Pierce is inexorably drawn into Lilly's world, and it's unlike any world he's ever known. It is a night-time world of escort services, websites, sex, and secret identities. Pierce tumbles through a hole, abandoning his orderly life in a frantic race to save the life of a woman he has never met.

Pierce's skills as a computer entrepreneur allow him to trace Lilly's last days with some precision. But every step into Lilly's past takes him deeper into a web of inescapable intricacy - and a decision that could cost him everything he owns and holds dear.

Not one of his best...

I did struggle to finish this and did not really enjoy the denouement which I found disappointing. However I am a great fan of Michael Connelly and am already looking forward to reading my next one!

Hard work

Well written but poor idea. Maybe it's good if you can empathise with a computer geek who is the main character

Very good but not as good as Bosch

Great listen, but not on the same level as his other books. Maybe the reason he has not returned to this character. Once again Connelly got me researching something, this time molecular science - I always get some knowledge of something different in his books. Good plot but a little predictable, reasonably well read although I found the reader a bit rushed at times. Overall well worth listening to

Doesn’t feel like a Michael Connelly book

Only far down the book, as much as 70% into it does it begin to feel like a Michael Connelly novel when psychological profiling comes into play. It seems as though it’s been ghost written. Though still not such a bad listen.

Audio quality

Sound quality’s not good and sounds like this was recorded in the 1970s which didn’t help with the weak story line.
