Cassie Black has never looked back. She walked away from her life as a criminal after one disastrous night that left the man closest to her dead and her life in a shambles. Now she’s thriving at a job selling Porsches to Hollywood hotshots. Through everything, even her darkest moments, she has been able to keep going by holding on to one perfect thing, her greatest secret, dearer to her than life itself. When that secret is threatened, Cassie tosses her new life away like a bad hand of cards and goes back in a sprint to her old line of work. Her trade was robbing casino gamblers, and she was the very best. Now it’s the only way she can make money fast enough to maybe make everything right. Quickly she lines up a mark, a man who has been winning steadily for a week at high-stakes baccarat. The job goes smoothly until she opens his briefcase and discovers a world of trouble she never dreamed of. Her superstitious friend who lined up the job says it’s the bad-luck void moon having its malignant way. Cassie knows it’s worse. She’s crossed paths again with her life’s nemesis, the man who destroyed everything six years before. He’s Jack Karch, a private investigator by day who does bloody work for casino owners by night. Walking back into his sights is the worst thing that’s ever happened to Cassie. Getting out alive will take all her skill and luck and faith in that one good thing.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[This] riveting crime caper proves that Connelly is one of our premier suspense writers.” Entertainment Weekly
“In Void Moon, the job’s high-tech gadgets and split second timing ratchet up the tension. Michael Connelly is outstanding.” Wall Street Journal
“A slick, highly professional thriller that does not disappoint.” Washington Post Book World
“There are several suspense novels decorating bestseller lists, but for style and substance along with thrilling action, Void Moon is the only game in town.” Los Angeles Times
“Connelly has come up with yet another gem, a well-crafted crime tale that evokes Richard Stark’s hard-boiled Parker novels…As ever, the author delivers well-rounded characters…Add to this Connelly’s painstaking attention to detail, and you end up with high-octane entertainment.” Barnes & Noble
“Connelly has written his best book to date. In astrology, a void moon is considered bad luck, but Connelly’s Void Moon is better than a four-leaf clover. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“L. J. Ganser delivers a mesmerizing and nuanced performance. In creating Jack Karch, the bon vivant Vegas private eye who moonlights as a hit man, Ganser settles on a genial, almost charming delivery, underplaying the character’s sinister psychopathology and adding to the suspense. As hunted and hunter race across the twists and turns of the novel’s shadowy landscape, author and reader combine to make all the right moves.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Void Moon races with a wind-swept breathlessness that no other Connelly book duplicates or even approaches.” Book Magazine
“Ganser’s narration is crisp and clear at the beginning,…smooth and accomplished by the end.” AudioFile
