Void Moon by Michael Connelly

About the book: In L.A. Cassie Black is another eautiful woman in a Porche: except Cassie just did 6 years in prison and still has "ourlaw juice' flowing through her veins. Now Cassie is returning to her otl profession, taking down a money man in Vegas. But the perfect heist goes wrong, and suddenly Cassie is on the run - with a near psychotic Vegas "fixer" killing everyone who knew about the job. Between Cassie and the man hunting her there are a few last secrets: like who really set the job up, why Cassie had to take the chance, and how, in the end, it might all be a matter fo the moon....

Quote: After she hung up Cassie's eyes traveled up the wall next to the door. Her eyes held on the poster taped on the wall and facing her. It showed a woman in a string bikini walking on a sun-drenched beach. The word TAHITI! was scrawled in the sand behind her, just out of reach of the surf's wash. "To the place where the desert is ocean.she said out loud.

Why this book?: Because I won it from J. Kaye!

My thoughts:
I loved it, what a page turner. While none of the characters in this were "good" guys, I found myself rooting for Cassie. She was a strong well written character. The story flowed well, just a little back and forth to have to deal with. The ending was satisfying! The paperback of this book was published in 2001 ans I am hoping there is another one to follow Cassie Black. I enjoyed the voice of L.J. Ganser, it was easy to listen to. I reccomend this to anyone.
