Michael Connelly's THE LINCOLN LAWYER was a Richard & Judy's Book Club selection. Movie deals are in place for all his novels. He is an award-winning author who always attracts excellent reviews. 'This is Connelly at his very best, and you can't say better than that' Guardian. 'This is thriller writing of the highest quality, brilliantly paced and impossible to put down' Mail on Sunday. 'Connelly is a crime-writing genius. His Harry Bosch stories are genuine modern classics, and this one's in the same league - better in fact. Unmissable' Independent on Sunday. 'His books are page-turners, and the author is in sublime control of the speed at which we turn those pages. With VOID MOON I found myself turning very fast indeed' Mail on Sunday. 'VOID MOON is Michael Connelly at his best, and that is the very best where thriller writing is concerned' Irish Times.
A former police reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Michael Connellyis the author of seven acclaimed Harry Bosch novels: The Black Echo, The Black Ice, The Concrete Blonde, The Last Coyote, Trunk Music, Angels Flight, and A Darkness More Than Night, as well as The Poet, Blood Work and Void Moon. He lives in Los Angeles.
Even though Harry Bosch is nowhere to be found, Connelly has written his best book to date. In the past, Connelly's leads have been in law enforcement. His new protagonist, Cassie Black, is an ex-con who needs to make one more score in order to fulfill the dream that sustained her in prison. The first part of the novel follows a Mission Impossible-style crime. Something happens during this caper that propels the rest of the book as Cassie is relentlessly pursued by Jack Karch, a ruthless investigator for a casino who leaves no witnesses alive. Cassie has a secret that she will protect at all costs, and while this secret is obvious, other aspects of this fast-paced thriller are surprising indeed. In astrology, a void moon is considered bad luck, but Connelly's Void Moon is better than a four-leaf clover. Highly recommended. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/15/99.]ÄJeff Ayers, Seattle P.L.
