Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Michael Connelly is one of the best of the current crop of American hard-boiled writers, but halfway through Chasing the Dime I began feeling that Nancy Bartholomew's series of feather-light comic mysteries featuring the Florida stripper Sierra Lavotini had him beat for sophisticated outlook. Connelly can only think of the sex trade in terms of victims and users, and the worst part of the book is when he slides into the moralism that is the wheezing bane of hard-boiled writing....Still, Chasing the Dime is well-plotted and it holds your interest, and it's easy to picture the book's high-tech shenanigans translating well to the screen. And nobody is going to argue with the revelation of who's behind the book's evildoing: It's a villain so many of us hate already." Charles Taylor, Salon.com
