CHASING THE DIME - Michael Connelly
This is a stand alone novel from Connelly as opposed to his Harry Bosch series.
The scenario involves Henry Pierce a computer genius moving into a new apartment and receiving numerous calls from clients of a call girl who previously had this number.
From here Henry is dragged into the Los Angeles world of escort services and Internet web sites.
The story has some merit but the plotting is ridiculous, which is a shame because Connelly is usually so much better than this. He puts out a lot of books so I am presuming this was a bad day, however his editor needs a kick in the backside for letting it go out as is.(Published 2002)
