Publisher's Write-Up

This breathtakingly original new thriller set in the glittery, surreal Las Vegas brings us Michael Connolly's most appealling hero yet: a woman caught up in a scam that may cost her the one thing she holds dearer than her own life.

Cassie Black is lured back to a profession she'd left behind - robbing casino gamblers of their winnings - by a set up that looks too good to ignore. Her work goes as planned, except the mark has too much money, so much that someone very powerful must be very angry. Cassie soon finds herself running from a stone cold killer who somehow knows her every move in advance. He also appears to be closing in on Cassie's most closely guarded secret, the one thing that could have caused her to return to crime - and the one thing she will do anything to protect.

Written with the fast pace and brilliant plotting that have made bestsellers of Blood Work and Angels Flight, and featuring one of the strongest heroines to come along in years, Void Moon is Michael Connolly at the top of his form in his most compelling and surprising novel to date.

Review by Nigel
Rating 8/10
This novel was highly recommend by Chrissi (see above) who likes the author's work and is a keen fan. The novel was fast and furious and reminded me of early works by Dean Koontz (the ones under lots of aliases).

The story involves a female convict out on parole and working in a boring job (selling Porsches, which to me didn't seem all that bad, especially as she got to use one. Or am I just shallow?) She decides she needs to do one big job to get the cash to fulfill her dream so she seeks out an old contact. The job then turns out to be a little more complicated than she first thought and things start to go wrong.

There is a lot more to the plot but I don't want to give too much away. Suffice to say the lead character is excellently portrayed and the villain is suitably villainous. A very good read that has you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Recommended.

Rating 9/10
I found this one, released without my knowledge at Waterstones, and I could not wait to get it home to read. It lasted precisely from three pm on the Saturday afternoon until (after a few hours sleep) about eleven the following day.

One of the best reads that I have had in ages. Fast cars, modern technology, lovely characterisation, I was disappointed to have finished it. Definitely one of Mr C's best efforts to date.
