Henry Pierce has a whole new life - new apartment, new telephone, new telephone number. But the first time he checks his messages, he discovers that someone had the number before him. The messages on his line are for a woman named Lilly, and she is in some kind of serious trouble.
Pierce is inexorably drawn into Lilly's world, and it's unlike any world he's ever known. It is a night-time world of escort services, websites, sex, and secret identities. Pierce tumbles through a hole, abandoning his orderly life in a frantic race to save the life of a woman he has never met.
Pierce's skills as a computer entrepreneur allow him to trace Lilly's last days with some precision. But every step into Lilly's past takes him deeper into a web of inescapable intricacy - and a decision that could cost him everything he owns and holds dear.

"Very good but not as good as Bosch"
Great listen, but not on the same level as his other books. Maybe the reason he has not returned to this character. Once again Connelly got me researching something, this time molecular science - I always get some knowledge of something different in his books. Good plot but a little predictable, reasonably well read although I found the reader a bit rushed at times. Overall well worth listening to
Well written but poor idea. Maybe it's good if you can empathise with a computer geek who is the main character
