    Surprise Ending!

    This was my first Michael Connelly book. It started with Henry Pierce moving into a new apartment after the breakup with his girlfriend, Nicole. He gets a series of phone calls for Lilly, a woman he has never met and becomes more and more annoyed with the angry callers that want to speak to Lilly. He plans on changing his phone number but cannot get Lilly out of his mind. He becomes involved in trying to find Lilly, suspecting foul play. His life will never be the same. Little does he know where this obsession leads him. No one can be trusted, and his life is in constant danger. He steps into a world of escorts, websites, sex and secret passions. His success and expertise mean nothing, and he soon becomes the chief suspect in a murder case. Henry has been chasing the dime and doing all it takes so his company comes out first with a scientific breakthrough worth millions. Unfortunately for Henry, there are people that do not want this breakthrough to happen. This is a hard to put down book with a lot of suspense. I was on the edge of my seat throughout. Just when I thought I had figured out who was causing all the problems for Henry, the story had a new twist. Wow! I certainly was surprised with the way the story ended. I liked it so much, I decided to read more of Michael Connelly's books starting with his first book, Black Echo. My only disappointment was some of the language used, which really wasn't necessary for the plot.

    I read all Michael Connelly books and enjoyed this book very much. I liked the characters and I thought the plotting was good. Featuring a protagonis that's a scientist was a nice change of pace.

    contemporary updating of the classic North by Northwest

    Henry Pierce obtains a new phone number that the scientist quickly sends out to his business contacts and scientific peers. However, he soon receives calls from individuals asking for Lilly and her escort service. He concludes that Lilly is a high priced call girl peddling her wares through her number placed in cyberspace except those phone digits now belong to Henry. From his molecular research work, Henry is used to doing things so he seeks out Lilly to get her to remove the number from her homepage. However, Lilly apparently has vanished, which reminds Henry of his sister who turned hooker before being murdered. Unable to resist, Henry begins a search for Lilly that leads to the police and some nasty individuals chasing after him. As he applies deductive and inductive reasoning to his situation, Henry realizes his paranoia proves valid not to trust anyone. Hitchcock fans will enjoy this contemporary updating of the classic North by Northwest due to the action and clever twists and turns. Henry makes a wonderful Roger Thornhill as he struggles with the truth that never seems to be out there. Readers will briefly wonder why a brilliantly logical person like Henry failed to just obtain a new number even if he knows it¿s a pain to inform his associates of the change and feels guilty over his sister¿s death. Still, fans will gloss over that as the delightful thriller stars an intelligent nerd landing in one predicament after another using sound reasoning to stay alive for the moment. Harriet Klausner
