Three short stories: cheating at an 1920s backroom poker game, a traffic crime investigator analyzes the scene of a suspicious celebrity death, and a cop tails a would-be assassin to a Dodgers game. The stories were all decent because Connelly’s a good writer but they’re lightweight and easily missed, even for fans. His short story books “Angle of Investigation” and “Suicide Run” were much better. Bechdel test: fail.

Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or David W. Collins?
I enjoyed these short stories. But, frankly Michael Connelly and his characters (Bosch or Haller) are at their best in complete books.
What does David W. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Good narration, but not too much to work with.
Was Mulholland Dive worth the listening time?

I did not warm to this read at all! A true Connelly fan, I was disappointed by the lack of speed and found it difficult to finish the story, something that rarely happens to me. I'd say you would be better off with Suicide Run if you're looking for short stories.
This promises three shorts but only includes the Mulholland Dive story.... buyer beware! The story itself is a good one - but I paid for three not 1
