Description

Would you risk your life for a woman you've never met? A thriller about a simple wrong number that opens a line into terror. From the award-winning No. 1 bestselling author.

Henry Pierce has a whole new life - new apartment, new telephone, new number. When he checks his machine, he discovers messages 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 traces Lilly's last days, but every step into her past takes him deeper into a web of inescapable intricacy - and a decision that could cost him everything he owns and holds dear...

From Publishers Weekly

16 September 2002 – The copy on the galley of Connelly's slick new thriller doesn't mention Hitchcock, but most reviews probably will, with the novel's many surprises and "wrong man" plot line. Even the opening echoes Hitch's North by Northwest, in which Cary Grant's mistaken interception of a bellboy's page leads to disaster; here it's nanotechnology entrepreneur Henry Pierce's getting a phone call that triggers the trouble. The call is for a prostitute, Lilly, and it's the first of many; turns out that the Web site on which she advertises, L.A. Darlings, has Pierce's new home phone number next to a photo of gorgeous Lilly. But when Pierce visits the Web site's offices, he learns that Lilly has vanished. Where has she gone? His search to find the missing woman prompted by his insatiable curiosity and by memories of his tragic, long-ago hunt for his sister, also a prostitute draws Pierce into mortal danger. It also pushes him into conflict with the law, for when the cops cotton to Lilly's disappearance, Pierce becomes the number one suspect serious bad news for this scientist whose company is being visited by a major investor in just a few days. Connelly's plotting is shrink-wrap tight, his characters particularly Pierce, whose impulsiveness is balanced by his measured applications of the scientific method to analyze his plight are smartly drawn. It's the rare reader who will be able to finger the villain behind all the mayhem. While very entertaining, however this is the perfect book for a long airplane ride the novel lacks the moral resonance and weight of Connelly's most impressive works, such as City of Bones.
