A truly engrossing thriller. Michael Connelly has moved away from Harry Bosch for a really super read. I could not put the book down without wanting to finish whatever else I was doing, and get back to the plot. The characters are rich and fulfilling; the entire book is full of twists and turns that are delicious! It is really a great book and true to its genre.

Another departure for Michael Connelly, but only in terms of the focus of the novel. Here a reporter takes center stage and outshines bored cops in his effort to track down his brother's (a cop) killer. And talk about layers of the onion! Connelly is a master at plot twists that only engage the reader further rather than distract. Buckle up when you sit down to read this one.

Fifth book by Michael Connolly. First outside of Harry Bosch LAPD realm. At the time cutting edge computer thriller, now it is a little dated. However, doesn't interfer with enjoyment of tightly crafted thriller.

At first this was a little hard to get into, but it certainly kept me guessing. I didn't really figure it out until the very end. I would recommend this book.
