Michael Connelly Synopses: Void Moon is a standalone novel by Michael Connelly. In Los Angeles, Cassie Black is another beautiful woman in a Porsche: except Cassie just did six years behind bars and still has “outlaw juice” flowing through her. Now Cassie is going back to her old job, taking down a money man in Vegas. But the perfect heist ends up not being so perfect, and suddenly Cassie is on the run – with a near-psychotic Vegas “fixer” killing everyone who knew about the job. Between Cassie and the man hunting her are a few last secrets: such as who actually set up the job, why Cassie had to take the change, and how, in the end, it might all be a matter of the moon…

Chasing the Dime by Michael Connelly is a standalone title. Henry Price has a whole new life, which includes new digs, a new telephone, and new telephone number. But when he first checks his messages, he realizes someone had the number before him. The messages on his line are for a woman named Lilly, and she is in danger. Price is inexorably drawn into Lilly’s world, and it’s unlike any world he’s ever known. It is a world of escort services, websites, sex, and secret identities. Price tumbles through a hole, giving up the order in his life for a frantic race to save the life of a woman he has never met. Price’s computer skills allow him to learn about Lilly’s last days with some accuracy. But every step into Lilly’s past takes Price deeper into a web of inescapable intricacy – and a decision that could cost him everything he owns and holds dear.

Blood Work is the first Terry McCaleb novel by Michael Connelly. When Graciella Rivers steps onto his boat, ex-FBI agent Terry McCaleb has no idea he’s about to come out of retirement. He’s only recently had a heart transplant and is avoiding stress at all costs. But when Graciella tells him the way her sister, Gloria, was murdered, Terry realizes he has no choice. Now the man with the new heart vows to take down a predator without a soul. For Gloria’s killer shatters every rule that McCaleb ever learned in his years with the FBI – as McCaleb gets no more second chances at life… and only one shot at the truth.
