Connelly Michael - скачать бесплатно все книги автора. Elias has been found murdered on the eve of going to court on behalf of Michael Harris: a man the LAPD believes guilty of the rape and murder of a 12 year old girl. Michael Connelly returns with a new character and a story that reaches new levels of intricacy and suspense-his most gripping work to date. Thanks to a heart transplant, retired Los Angeles -based FBI agent Terrell McCaleb has a new lease on life.

His books are dark, full of atmosphere and fascinating characters whose lives impact the stories they move through. His works are not only successful thrillers, but like Lehane and Hall's works, also extremely literate. I'm always pleased to see a series writer write stand-alone books as well, and here Connelly moves away from his Hieronymous Bosch novels to introduce a new character.

Jonathan Davis, who may be remembered by listeners for his stellar performance on the audio SNOW CRASH, among others, brings his considerable talent to this newest thriller by bestselling author Michael Connelly. Pierce has just moved into a new apartment, and he's been "chasing the dime" - doing all it takes so his company comes out first with a scientific breakthrough worth millions.

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 nighttime 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.

Chasing the Dime has the irresistible velocity of film classics like The Maltese Falcon and Chinatown, but with the extraordinary writing and style that have made Michael Connelly 'a crime-writing genius' (Independent on Sunday)

A wrong number leads to the main character, Henry Pierce, to begin a welfare check on the mystery woman whose phone number he was assigned. His hunt begins with delving into the underbelly of digital sex and leads him right into a very clever and devious trap, but why and who did this and why him? Chasing the dime means basically doing nothing but going after scientific research which leads to producing the results and getting the funding to do it with. This is what caused Henry to lose the woman he loves. However, the mystery of the missing woman begins to take over and becomes his new obsession.
I was expecting a novel about Michael Haller, and it wasn't. This one is full of deceit, anger, murder, violence, and betrayal in the nanotechnology field. Yes, even geeks have intrigue. I am not a techie, so a lot of this was boring to me, and I just skipped those parts. Henry Pierce is a genius, but rather pathetic when it comes to trying to redeem his relationship with his soon-to-be-ex girlfriend.
Many years before, his sister, Isabella, a runaway, was brutally murdered by who had been known at the time as The Dollmaker. He feels connected to this missing woman, and although he is not a detective, or in law enforcement in any way, he feels compelled to follow through and find this beautiful young woman, whose picture he has found on a sexually oriented website. Apart from there being too much technology-speak, this book is fast paced, brutal, and I could hardly put it down.

First of all, I am a huge Michael Connelly fan. I preorder all his books and never wait for early reviews because I don't care what others think of his work - I am entertained by it.

After a good start, the pace of Chasing the Dime slowed too much to keep my attention, and I never became involved with the story after that. At times I found myself shaking my head saying, Michael Connelly didn't write this. It isn't the usual seamless, flawless narrative and realistic dialogue I know him capable of. It was in some ways a surprisingly amateurish effort. I looked it up on amazon and saw that he had written this book back in 2002 and I was fascinated by the contrast with his current work.

Even after all the years he spent as a journalist, and having already written a few books before CTD, Connelly still hadn't hit his stride by this point. Obviously he continued to improve in the subsequent years until he became the Michael Connelly whose work I can pick out from reading the first paragraph. I once read of an experiment conducted by Anais Nin, where she submitted a manuscript to her editor under a different name. As soon as he started reading it he called her and let her know he was on to her. We don't include Michael Connelly in the same class with Nin, but if you are a solid diehard Connelly fan, you may have to be forgiving while reading CTD, but you'll eventually hear his voice in there.

I continued on through Chasing the Dime for the sole purpose of picking out the parts that rang hollow, or wimped out, were clunky, or just went totally off the credulity meter for me, and thought about ways the author would probably write it today, if he ever did a rewrite. In a way I enjoyed the book as much as any other Connelly because for me it was an interactive experience! Okay, we get our kicks where we find them.

Not his best, obviously, but still worth the read whether you are a fan or not. Because Connelly couldn't write a bad book if he tried.

Nearly everything I had read from Michael Connelly was either Harry Bosch or the Lincoln Lawyer so I was intrigued when I found Chasing the Dime. I was not disappointed- Michael Connelly knows how to write a story that keeps the pages turning right to the end. Multiple twists and turns, with doses of the world of prostitution and revolutionary bioscience wrapped around Henry Pierce and his wild ride. Very entertaining and an excellent read.

This was a departure from the usual good stories from Connelly. It took a long time to get to the climax and along the way, you wonder why this intelligent computer genius would get involved deeper and deeper into this world of pornography and prostitution even after he was almost killed. He put his business and his life in danger for a prostitute he didn't even know. Not very credible. Wish I had read the reviews before I ordered it.
However, I am now reading The Late Show which is another Connelly book introducing a female detective that is just as driven as Bosch. So far, so good.

Like so many others, I have been a fan of MC, have read most if not all his books and have never been disappointed until....now. I honestly thought Chasing the Dime was shallow, the characters were insubstantial and the 'plot' relied too much on scientific mumbo jumbo. Though I must admit I'm sure it was all factual and well researched. But really - does a brilliant scientist in research go careering around playing detective, hiding bodies in freezers and taking the law into his own hands? While Mr. Plod (the detective) is betrayed as an aggressive, insensitive and slightly stupid individual who seems incapable of acting on obvious deception. Sorry Michael but perhaps the well is running dry or your publishers are pushing too hard.

I thought the plot dragged but I really liked the technical stuff. The ending was quite a surprise ... and answered a LOT of unanswered questions ... which probably redeemed the rating from 2 to 4 stars. You cannot just read the last 2-3 chapters though or you won't know any of the characters.

I kept waiting for one of the "LA" characters to show up and take over some of the plot/investigation. Maybe that is part of my disappointment.
