While the premise is a good one, and Connelly a talented writer, any and all tension dissipates faster than foggy breath.

Synopsis

Published for the first time under his own name, a dark and haunting story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly

Like his father before him, Brian Holloway is a safe man. That is, his specialty is opening safes. Every job is a little mystery, and he has yet to encounter a lock he can't break or a box he can't crack. But the day Holloway gets called in to open a rare, antique safe in a famous author's library, his skills open a door that should have remained closed.

In this haunting and singular story, previously published anonymously, Michael Connelly proves once again that he is "superb at building suspense.... the reader can never be sure what sudden turns the plot may take" (Wall Street Journal).

The delivery of the narrative is vintage Michael Connelly with the use of mystery/thriller devices giving it a quick pace.
