Chasing the Dime

While it contains none of his signature recurring characters, Chasing the Dime by Michael Connelly still has the tightly wound, cleverly narrative, and well-paced plot that has come to be expected of the author. It revolves around Henry Pierce, a mostly sensible man driven by an obsession with his work, whose life is thrown into disarray when he receives a new phone number that used to belong to a woman who sold her body to provide for herself. Haunted by a past that makes the stranger’s plight hit close to home, finding her and ensuring her safety becomes Pierce’s new obsession. Soon he finds himself over his head in a violent and unpredictable world that is far removed from his usually logical and regimented one. Satisfying twists and turns abound all the way to a great conclusion.
