MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 15, 2002

"Connelly diabolically teases readers with bits of exposition while scaring the hell out of them in the most accomplished slice of Hitchcock since the Master's heyday. The result is a tour de force of nerve-shredding suspense."
And now for something completely Hitchcockian from the chronicler of Harry Bosch (City of Bones, p. 205, etc.): a wrong number that spins into a full-court press against the beleaguered hero's liberty and life. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

HISTORY
Released: Jan. 20, 1969

"As viewed by the victims and by writers as diverse as Anna Arnold Hedgeman and Edmund Wilson (and counterpinted by bland quotes from the mass media), the depression hits home, and hurts."
