    The messages waiting for Henry Pierce when he plugs in his new phone clearly aren't intended for him. They indicate something has gone terribly wrong for a woman named Lilly. Pierce probes, investigates, and then tumbles through a hole, leaving behind a life driven by work to track down and help a woman he's never met. Connelly's latest is "a grabber from the beginning...utterly compelling."

    Overall

    My first Connelly book. You disappointeds/don't bothers/etc. simply don't understand the mind of a scientist. The wrong number was a fresh challenge, a side-project, if you will to get him through the rather mundane task of finding investors. These things bore scientists, so, with a small grain of salt, I can see why he'd be curious. The scientific underpinning of a nanotechnological 'engine' or energy source (a real scientific challenge to nanotech) was done quite well. Putting your disbelief behind you however, the story was riveting and having listened to probably 100 books on Audible it's the only book I ever sat down at night to finish (versus listening during the commute). I am now a huge Michael Connelly fan. I've now heard Lost Light and am working on the Narrows. Connelly constructs flawless plots that are at once complex and easy to follow. In the end, please save your dissing for Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, if you want to talk about improbable, intellectually suicidal stories.
