This short story is available in eBook and audio formats.

Published for the first time under his own name, a dark and haunting story from 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.

This story was previously published in print anonymously in The Secret Society of Demolition Writers in 2005.

This story is available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
