Publisher's Summary

In L.A., Cassie Black is another beautiful woman in a Porsche: except Cassie just did six years in prison and still has "outlaw juice" flowing in her veins. Now Cassie is returning to her old profession, taking down a money man in Vegas. But the perfect heist goes very wrong, and suddenly Cassie is on the run - with a near-psychotic Vegas "fixer" killing everyone who knew about the job.

Between Cassie and the man hunting her are a few last secrets: like who really set up the job, why Cassie had to take the chance, and how, in the end, it might all be a matter of the moon....

    I hear voices. But maybe that's because there's always an Audible book in my ear.

    "Could there be a worse narrator?"

    This is a terrific plot and is nearly ruined completely by a horrible, boring narration. There are so many readers out there that are much better. Too bad one wasn't used for this book.

    "no good guys"

    This is an interesting book in that there are no 'good guys' in the story. Thieves steal from thieves and then other thieves chase the first thieves. In that sense, I did not find any of the characters particularly likeable.

    Connolley does provide some interesting looks into some of the details of how certain crimes might be committed, but the techology he describes in detail is not up to date. For instance, the surveillance cameras one thief uses have to conntected by wires - wireless technology apparently has not made it into his knowledge base.

    If you like Connelly you will probably enjoy this book, but it does standout in any way and the ending is not surprising.

    Story
    "WOW one of best I've read in a while"
    What made the experience of listening to Void Moon the most enjoyable?

    Slightly just slightly slow start BUT WOW then it hits the road running and packs a punch. And the bad guy, karch, omg you want to reach in and grab him by the throat. Not sure I have come across such a well written bad guy in a long time if ever. He is soooooo bad you are truly not certain if he will be defeated.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It really was a 'page turner' not sure what to call that when you are listening and not really turning pages. You really start to root for Cassie and with every page you are not sure if things will work out. She did 'wrong' things for right, heart wrenching, reasons


    What does L. J. Ganser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think so, yes. Never listen to LJ previously but I would listen again


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    Would love a sequel but not sure how Connelly would pull it off. I guess its good to have a stand alone book every now and then!

    Story
    "Almost too thrilling. An exceptional book!"

    Void Moon is a story about Cassie Black, an ex-con who decides on a caper after nearly a year of going straight. As expected, the unexpected happens. The rest of the story is almost entirely about the duel between Cassie and Karch, the man who gets after her to recover the stolen money.
    The plot is clearly above average; perhaps even above Connelly's usual great plots. The speed is at least at the legal speed limit, and often crosses the limit. Yet it is very easy to understand the story, which is more than I can say for several convoluted action books that I have had the misfortune to read. Connelly develops the characters well. As always in his stories, it's not just "possible" to get into the minds of the players -- it's almost impossible not to. This story also has an emotional mother-child angle, balanced just right.
    Connelly's writing style in this book is a little nasty. There are sub-stories within this story, and Connelly almost never reveals the entire sub-story at one go. The effect is to tantalize, tease, frustrate and annoy you to a degree, yet there is equal satisfaction when the pieces finally fall into place. A masterpiece!
    I've always loved the Bosch stories, but I think this one was better than almost every Bosch novel. If I have any grudge it is this: Connelly almost literally gripped me by the the trachea just below the larynx, and pinched to narrow the airway to 50%. Till I finished the book I was tense, palpitating, and slightly breathless. Is there such a thing as "too thrilling" at my age? (I am severely on the wrong side of fifty.)
    The narrator is excellent.

    "Is this Connelly?"

    You'd think Connelly has enough bread and butter by now to create new characters like Cassie Black and write novels he wants to write, just like Void Moon. It shows Connelly poured his soul into this one, but I guess it didn't sell as good as any Harry Bosch novel.

    Well anyway, Void Moon very good storyline with some tasteful flashbacks, excellent strong characters, lively scenes, intense suspense, non-traditional bittersweet ending. I was susprised with this narrator too, his style fit the story quite well. All in all, a very good book. If you like Connelly but want to try something different than Bosch, than try Void Moon or Chasing the Dime.

    "Typical Connelly Crime Caper"

    I confess the majority of Michael Connelly's books I downloaded from the local library. It's amazing how generous his contribution is to free public access to his audio collection. I must also confess that crime novels aren't my first, second, of third choice of genres to read, but in between great historical fiction novels like Michael Connelly's The Pillars of the Earth series, his crime novels are still a lot of fun. The difference is, a year from now I'll barely remember the story and it will have had virtually zero impact on me - purely entertainment, whereas I'll remember The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End for a long time. They educated as well as entertained, and as such, had a measureable impact on my life. In other words, if you haven't read Pillars of the Earth, forget this book. You can always come back to it later.

    "Not up to par"

    I really like the bosch character and thought I would give this one a try. I just don't think that it was up to par or that rivoting, ok story with very little suspense, you could figure out what was going to happen way before the story got there.

    Story
    "Almost impossible to put down"
    What made the experience of listening to Void Moon the most enjoyable?

    The story line. It was imaginative and very captivating, I could not put this book down. I felt like it was one of the most suspenseful books by Michael Connelly, even more than most of his Bosch books. I also really liked his character development.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cassie Black - she was full of flaws but a very interesting and strong person - and very soon after "meeting" her did I want things to go her way.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole book. I would love to read a few more books about her - and find out for instance what she was doing and what adventure she was having when Bosch meets her in "The Narrows".


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes - but I don't want to say because it would spoil the read/listen.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not like the voice of the narrator at all. Even though he had good timing and read the story well, the sound of his voice really bothered me and this is the reason I did not give the performance of the book 5 stars.

    "Slow start, and then nearly unbearable suspense."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I have been a Connelly fan for some time, but this book is outstanding even for him. The book has more twists than Nixon. It is well plotted, very well written, and scary.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The theft scenes.


    What does L. J. Ganser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I did read the book. Audio books are a different experience entirely. Ganser just right for this. His voice just right for both Cassie and the psychopath tracking her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All the Vegas scenes. Connelly gets Vegas the way he gets LA


    Any additional comments?

    It's Michael Connelly. There are lots of good mystery writers, but Connelly is always compelling, never dull. The last four hours got me so spellbound, I dropped everything, lit a fire in the fireplace, and just gave over to it. This is one of his very best. And without even Harry Bosch.

    "Awful listen."
    Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or L. J. Ganser?

    Maybe.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly’s story?

    The entire story line.

    The entire story line would have to be re-written.


    What character would you cut from Void Moon?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    This was horrible.
