The Safe Man: A Short Story (2012)

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 first published in print anonymously in The Secret Society of Demolition Writers in 2005. A scripted Audible Original audio drama based on this short story has been produced starring Jack Quaid, Titus Welliver and a full cast, written by Michael Connelly and Terrill Lee Lanford.
