What a great idea for a plot; a burned out business man, a wrong number and the underworld that surrounds a woman gone missing.
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.
This book was riveting from the first paragraph. It kept me on the edge of my seat accompanying the man (Henry Price) through his desire to help "Lilly" and wondering how involved he would become in her life. The mystery of just how involved he would become and how dangerous his queries would be for either (or both) of them. A true page-turner.
Keeps you guessing til the end, the story is very good and you won't get it until the very end, so it will keep anyone's interest all the way through,he is one of my favorite writers
"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!
