CHASING THE DIME by Michael Connelly
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."

BOOK REVIEW

THE WRONG SIDE OF GOODBYE by Michael Connelly
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Nov. 1, 2016
