I listen to different books, some with interesting twisting plots, others just for an easy, enjoyable listen. I would put this book smack in the middle of that. It has an excellent plot with interesting characters. But while it is certainly an easy listen, I thought it was better than most other books of this genre. I enjoyed it and it has caused me to seek out more Michael Connelly books -- now I'm listening to the Harry Bosch books. So I highly recommend it to those who have listened to Baldacci, Berendson, or DeMille. It may be a bit more straightforward, but it is a good read (listen).
This is one of his best (if not best) standalone books by this author. I enjoyed every single page. It was suspenseful, stimulating, exciting, and clever. The narrator for the Audible version is flawless!
More unusual characters than some of Connelley's novels. I love the Harry Bosch series but this was an enjoyable listen. Plenty of twists as the plot unfolds and you find out the back story on each of the main characters. A likable heroine despite the fact that she is a theif.

Hard to beat this one! A mystery wrapped in a thriller with parental love to sweeten' the pot,
I've listened to all of the Harry Bosch novels, and several other Michael Connelly novels, and he never seems to have a bad story! Coming from a Harry Bosch perspective, I was prepared to not enjoy this story. But I found myself captured almost immediately. The characters are well drawn, the plot is interesting and well paced, and the narration is top notch. I'd love to see a sequel to this book. I'd love to know what happens next!
As usual Michael Connelly does not disappoint. Great book, beautifully read. Loved it. Highly recommended
Michael is a great story teller. This story starts from one characters view. Then halfway through you begin following the story from another characters perspective. While I found this a little distracting with the first switch, I was glad that the timeline did not go back and forth with view changes. As the story reaches the climax the two perspectives draw closer and closer. It was a great suspense novel.
this was a novel way of presenting the main protagonist who was the crook and the heroine in one person. Nice amount of suspense. The ending was well done.
The only disappointment was it ended too soon -- I hope he brings Cassie Black back in another story. If you like his Bosch series, this is another must!
