Reviews

Former journalist and Edgar Award winner Connelly (City of Bones) skillfully unfolds a story of obsessive curiosity and taut psychological suspense ideally suited to audio translation. A burgeoning technologies company, broken engagement and new apartment leave little time for 34-year-old workaholic chemist Henry Pierce to even check his messages. But when he does, he realizes his new telephone number was formerly that of a beautiful prostitute named Lilly, who's still receiving dozens of messages, but hasn't been heard from in over a month. Veteran audiobook narrator and actor Davis provides crisp, stage-honed vocals, with his versatile characterizations easily shifting from the Valley talk of an aging surfer/computer hacker to the hesitant pleas of Lilly's johns. Haunted by his own sister's murder, Henry eschews his normal all-business demeanor and plunges head first into the seedy sex underworld, where he befriends a hardened escort, makes a grisly discovery that may prove Lilly's demise, as well as his own, and is fingered as the prime suspect by the cops. Davis's masterful dramatizations deliver the perfect complement to Connelly's sophisticated mystery, sure to attract fans of his Harry Bosch series, as well as new listeners. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Forecasts, Sept. 16). (Oct.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

'Connelly is a former polic reporter for the LA Times, and attention to detail is perhaps one of the hallmarks of his work. In this, computer engineer Henry Pierce has a whole new life - new aprtment, new telephone and new telephone number. But he finds messages left for the woman who had the number beforehim, and becomes drawn into her troubled, somewhat seedy and definitely dangerous world in this intriguing and well-crafted novel.'

It's not Harry Bosch this time but Henry Prince, who discovers that the woman who previously had his new phone number is in dark and dirty trouble. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
