This is a stand alone novel, but with Michael Connelly, you never know when a stand alone will become part of a series! The locale is typical Bosch territory (Los Angeles and Las Vegas), but no characters from other Connelly novels are involved in this one. The main character is a 20's female.
This was my first book my Michael Connelly and I was hooked! Great story with mystery but still pulls at your heartstrings for the mother looking for her son after a horrible betrayal.
Great Connelly book away from the police detective Bosch series, and worth reading for the change of pace and perspective.
Cassie Black has never looked back. She walked away from her life as a criminal after one disatrous night that left the man closest to her dead and her life in a shambles.

Written with the fiery pace and brilliant plotting that have made bestsellers of Angels Flight and Blood Work, and featuring one of the strongest heroines to come along in years, Void Moon is Michael Connellys most original and surprising novel yet.
Informative and interesting.
I became a big Connelly fan when I read The Lincoln Lawyer. This is more typical of his established style, involving a woman ex-con who returns to her life of Los Vegas casino robbery. Well-written with an excellent plot and strong characters.
This is not part of the Harry Bosch series but well worth the read. A con artist tries the last con that in its wake, all those close to the con are targets. Exciting, fast-paced story.
A lightning paced, sexy, and unputdownable story of love, money, and retribution. Great crime fiction from a master of suspense and taut delivery.
One of his best - a must read!!!
The characters are so thrilling they leap off the page. The story is magnificent and masterfully told. This story is hot and blood pumping all the way through.
his books never cease to please me! love every one of them!
First non-Harry Bosch book I have read. Connelly really put a great story together. I didn't want to put the book down. Being well acquainted with both the L.A. area and Las Vegas, everything he described (except the Cleopatra) was spot on. Although on reflection, the story was entirely fiction, it was satisfying enough to keep the reader interested.
