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!

This one was different from most of Michael Connelly's detective or journalist murders, centered this time on the a victim wrongly accused, set up for reasons not clear in the beginning. It was an enjoyable read with a unique angle that made me cling to every fact and turn the pages faster. The references to other crimes and persons from his other books builds the interest and piques the insiders feeling of knowing more than what was written. Very clever.

Very good fast moving book! Starts off with a bang and really picks up momentum fast. Hard trying to put this one down!
