Henry Pierce has a whole new life: a new apartment, new telephone, new telephone number. But the first time he checks his messages, he discovers someone had the number before him. The phone messages waiting for Pierce clearly aren’t for him: “Where is Lilly? This is her number. It’s on the site.”

Pierce had just moved into his new apartment, and he has been “chasing the dime”—doing all it takes so his company comes out first with a scientific breakthrough worth millions. But he can’t get the messages for Lilly out of his mind. His skills as a computer entrepreneur allow him to trace Lilly’s last days with some precision.

But as Pierce tries to help a woman he has never met, every step into Lilly’s past takes him deeper into a web of inescapable intricacy, into a world of escorts, websites, sex, and secret passions. It’s a world where his success and expertise mean nothing—and a world where he becomes the chief suspect in a murder case, trapped in the fight of his life.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Carol | 6/22/2016

    " This story keeps you involved and you won't want to put it down. A real page turner if you will, full of intrigue and after you get involved there are lots of twists and turns. The narration was great every word. The story has a few surprises and an ending that I didn't expect "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Judy | 2/17/2014

    " This was the mystery group's May selection. I started out annoyed with it. If your new number generates a lot of unwanted calls from the previous user, wouldn't you just change it ASAP? You wouldn't try to find this unknown person especially when you determined she was a prostitute. But then there wouldn't be a book, right? Connelly kept throwing enough crumbs out that you wanted to read it to the end. I did figure out who was behind it, but not all the whys and hows. I would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sindhu Jha | 2/4/2014

    " The story is good. It is about a scientist who works day & night in a company to build the world's 1st molecular computer and then, thr is 'someone' who wants him to give up his dream project (leave the job) as the 'someone' would get a huge amt of money from the opp. party company. The 'someone' is the suspense for which the scientist goes thru a lot of police enquiries as he gets false accused for murdering a women who is an escort. U can start guessing the 'someone' half way thru the book. I bet ur guess will b wrong ;) I think, thr r better books than this book ... though! "

    " A decent enough Connelly standalone. Not as good as The Lincoln Lawyer, but enjoyable nonetheless. "
