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

    Thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories

    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.

    This is generous

    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.

    "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.

    You should read these short stories -

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

    These stories appear to be written by a high school student.
