Henry Pierce has a whole new life: a new apartment, new telephone, new telephone number. But the first time he checks his messages, he discovers someone had the number before him. The phone messages waiting for Pierce clearly aren’t for him: “Where is Lilly? This is her number. It’s on the site.” Pierce had just moved into his new apartment, and he has been “chasing the dime”—doing all it takes so his company comes out first with a scientific breakthrough worth millions. But he can’t get the messages for Lilly out of his mind. His skills as a computer entrepreneur allow him to trace Lilly’s last days with some precision. But as Pierce tries to help a woman he has never met, every step into Lilly’s past takes him deeper into a web of inescapable intricacy, into a world of escorts, websites, sex, and secret passions. It’s a world where his success and expertise mean nothing—and a world where he becomes the chief suspect in a murder case, trapped in the fight of his life.

“Davis’ masterful dramatizations deliver the perfect complement to Connelly’s sophisticated mystery, sure to attract fans of his Harry Bosch series.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Davis creates some truly wonderful characters that might have stepped right out of LA Confidential. He brings a great sense of energy to all his work that permeates throughout and transmits itself beautifully to the listener.” AudioFile
“Once again, Connelly keeps the reader’s heart racing and the pages turning…Connelly takes what could have been a typical suspense thriller and turns it into something exceptional through nonstop action and surprising twists.” Library Journal
“Connelly is as hot as it gets…Connelly brings…two worlds together in a slam-bang finale that will leave fans gasping.” Booklist
“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.” Kirkus Reviews
