Publisher's Summary

Three never-before-collected short stories from number-one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly.

In "Cahoots", a backroom poker game turns deadly when a cheater is exposed. In "Mulholland Dive", a man who deciphers the hidden codes of accident scenes investigates a fatality off L.A.'s most fabled roadway. In "Two-Bagger", an obsessed cop tails an ex-con he believes is about to carry out a contract killing.

Together these gripping, unforgettable stories show that Michael Connelly "knows the workings of the LAPD and the streets of the City of Angels like he knows his own name" (Boston Globe).

This special audio edition also features a sneak preview from Connelly’s highly anticipated next novel The Black Box, in which LAPD Detective Harry Bosch must confront the city's and his own haunted past.

One of Connelly's weaker efforts

Any additional comments?

Three short stories: cheating at an 1920s backroom poker game, a traffic crime investigator analyzes the scene of a suspicious celebrity death, and a cop tails a would-be assassin to a Dodgers game. The stories were all decent because Connelly’s a good writer but they’re lightweight and easily missed, even for fans. His short story books “Angle of Investigation” and “Suicide Run” were much better. Bechdel test: fail.

Good, but not the best

Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or David W. Collins?

I enjoyed these short stories. But, frankly Michael Connelly and his characters (Bosch or Haller) are at their best in complete books.

What does David W. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good narration, but not too much to work with.

Was Mulholland Dive worth the listening time?

Yes.

Great listen

What made the experience of listening to Mulholland Dive the most enjoyable?

Dependable story line full development of characters surprise ending.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Harry Bosch. Wish I could meet him in person.

What does David W. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It is easier to form mental pictures when you listen instead of read.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

There are a million stories in Los Angeles and this is one of them.

A touch of O. Henry, a lot of pure Connelly

Save for the first of these three short stories (a youthful seeming yarn), these are good, mature Connelly tales without contrivances. However, they're pricy for the book's brevity.

A little depressing but good.

New characters in an original short story but I found them a little bit of a downer. Well written and entertaining though.

Great collection of stories

If you like Michael Connelly or want to try him out this is a nice collection of 3 stories. I enjoy his books and will continue to read whatever he puts out there.

Not your usual Connelly - and a pity for it!

I did not warm to this read at all! A true Connelly fan, I was disappointed by the lack of speed and found it difficult to finish the story, something that rarely happens to me. I'd say you would be better off with Suicide Run if you're looking for short stories.

NOT WHAT IS CURRENTLY SAYS ON THE TIN!

This promises three shorts but only includes the Mulholland Dive story.... buyer beware! The story itself is a good one - but I paid for three not 1
