Three never-before-collected short stories from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly

In "Cahoots," a backroom poker game turns deadly when a cheater is exposed. In "Mulholland Dive," a man who deciphers the hidden codes of accident scenes investigates a fatality off L.A.'s most fabled roadway. In "Two-Bagger," an obsessed cop tails an ex-con he believes is about to carry out a contract killing.

Together these gripping, unforgettable stories show that Michael Connelly "knows the workings of the LAPD and the streets of the City of Angels like he knows his own name" (Boston Globe).

Hadn't read any of these, but well worth the two bucks. Different stories, but each one interesting in its own way.

This was a great compilation of stories. Each one kept me turning the page ready for more. In a time where some writers tend to seem like a book machine, Michael Connelly continues to be fresh with great story lines, time after time. Although these are short, easy reads, they do not skimp on keeping your interest. This will be one that I will read again and again.

Held my interest - each of the three stories. Great author.

If Michael Connelly was not one of my favorite authors I would not have given this many stars. It is a collection of three mediocre short stories and a tease for an upcoming novel. I regret spending $1.99 for it.

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite "Mulholland Dive" by Michael Connelly is an anthology of three short stories. 'Cahoots': The setting is the 1930s. Six men sit around a table playing cards. McMilian is the bad guy, cheat and tempter; he suggests a robbery that should net the men a great deal of money when they melt down the Olympic medals and sell the gold. Could McMilian be truly planning a theft or was he trying to take the men off of what he was doing? 'Mulholland Dive': In this story we meet Detective Clewiston, a Reconstructionist. His current assignment is to determine whether the death of a man in a car crash was accidental or foul play. The deceased was a wealthy man in the midst of a nasty divorce. 'Two-Bagger': Police officers Stillwell and Harwick are watching Eugene Vachon. Vachon was just released from Jail where he had been serving time for being a meth cook. The two officers suspect Vachon will have to do a favor for the Road Saints Gang, who protected him while he was in prison. Could the favor be a commitment to murder? Writing a short story is very difficult; the author does not have the luxury of time/length to develop the characters or plot. However, author Michael Connelly does a superb job in everything he writes. I enjoyed all three stories and I do prefer the Harry Bosch series. These stories are well-written, interesting and an all-around good read. These short stories were just long enough to make me want more.

Great triology of stories by Connelly! The usual twists and turns in each story (just like driving on Mulholland Drive).
