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....

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!
Once again a grate book from Connelly
And with Ganser as narrator it just has to be good..
Good story and well written, keeps the suspense to the end..
... The narrator was probably the main culprit. I don't get it - I really enjoy Michael Connelly's stories, but some of the narrators chosen for his books are simply awful (and many reviewers have commented on this) and spoil the story. With a big name like his he should be able yo get the best narrators - who chooses them???? Anyway, I would have given up after the first few hours if it hadn't been a Connelly book - I had hoped it would finally come to life. But It never quite did! The storyline is actually very interesting and clever but the narrator really killed this one for me, and the description of the details of the caper are tedious, and in the end i really could't care less what happened to the characters.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Micheal Connelly is one of my favorite authors and this book did not disappoint; great story that made my commute flyby
I have a very long drive every day and this book made it seem like 15 minutes each way. The narrarator was excellent and the book clearly written with great build and flow. The descriptions of Vegas and LA were spot on and accurate (I work in LA where some of the story took place). I was sorry it was over tonight. I need another great listen. Connelly is a new favorite of mine!
Michael Connelly writes an interseting tale and develops excellent characters and dialog which is very different than the Bosch books.
This book was written in late 1990's (published 2000) and the book's reference to technology was state of the art at the time of the writing. Regardless of this, I still found the theft techniques pretty cool!
The story moved along and held my attention til the end. The story is a bit of a tragedy and you will not have a happy feeling of hero riding off in the sunset in the end.
