Only one or two of Connelly's continuing characters (attorney Langwiser, for example) show up in this departure novel. As in The Poet the protagonist here is not a cop of any kind, but the "scientific mind" of chemist Henry Pierce will take one on a typical convoluted-Connelly ride and provide enough thrills and chills to satisfy even the most jaded reader.

What a great idea for a plot; a burned out business man, a wrong number and the underworld that surrounds a woman gone missing.

"Chasing the Dime" is not one of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch character novels. At first I was kind of dissapointed, but this book hooked me on the first page and I could not put it down! Very fast moving, twisted plot that will not leave Connelly's fans upset at all! I was sorry to see this one end. Give it a chance!

Excellent mystery from beginning to end. The beginning was a little slow. After all the characters were in play, I caught Henry's curiosity and was intrigued by the whole story. The ending has a very nice twist that I didn't see coming and had to actually re-read some of the story to see how it fit in. Nice ending. A Good read over all.

A great thriller, one of the best I've read. Couldn't put it down, read in 2 days.

Only read one other book by this author so far (The Lincoln Lawyer) which was also good.

Would highly recommend this book!

Like Void Moon, this book is a departure from Connelly's Bosch / McCaleb detective series. It starts as a book about a citizen / scientist / entrepreneur engaging in some amateur detective work that explodes in seriousness and complexity. Plenty of twists (and a little nanotechnology) thrown in. Fun.
