Synopsis of this title

The Poet
Jack McEvoy specializes in death.  As a crime reporter for the Rocky Mountain News, he has seen every kind  of murder.  But his professional bravado doesn't lessen the brutal shock of learning that his only brother is dead, a suicide.
Jack's brother was a homicide detective, and he had been depressed about a recent murder case, a hideously grisly one, that he'd been unable to solve.
McEvoy decides that the best way to exorcise his grief is by writing a feature on police suicides.  But when he begins his research, he quickly arrives at a stunning revelation.  Following his leads, protecting his sources, muscling his way inside a federal investigation, Jack grabs hold of what is clearly the story of a lifetime.  He also knows that in taking on the story, he's making himself the most visible target for a murderer who has eluded the greatest investigators alive.
The Poet won the Anthony Award for Best Novel at 1997's Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention

Blood Work
In Blood Work, Connelly introduces a new character, Terry McCaleb, who was a top man at the FBI until a heart ailment forced his early retirement.  Now he lives a quiet life, nursing his new heart and restoring the boat on which he lives in Los Angeles Harbor.  Although he isn't looking for any excitement, when Graciela Rivers asks him to investigate her sister Gloria's death, her story hooks him immediately: the new heart beating in McCaleb's chest is Gloria's.
As McCaleb investigates the evidence in the case, the suspected randomness of the crime gives way to an unsettling suspicion of a twisted intelligence behind the murder.  Soon McCaleb finds himself on the trail of a killer more horrifying than anything he ever encountered before.
Blood Work won the Grand Prix, the highest honor for a mystery novel in France. It also won the Anthony Award and Macavity Award for Best Novel of 1998.

Void Moon
Cassie Black has never looked back. She walked away from her life as a criminal after one disastrous night that left the man closest to her dead and her life in a shambles. Now she's thriving at a job selling Porsches to Hollywood hotshots. Through everything — even her darkest moments — she has been able to keep going by holding on to one perfect thing, her greatest secret, dearer to her than life itself.
When that secret is threatened, Cassie tosses her new life away like a bad hand of cards and goes back in a sprint to her old line of work. Her trade was robbing casino gamblers, and she was the very best. Now it's the only way she can make enough money fast to maybe make everything right. Quickly she lines up a mark, a man who has been winning steadily for a week at high-stakes baccarat. The job goes smoothly until she opens his briefcase… And discovers a world of trouble she never dreamed of. Her superstitious friend who lined up the job says it's the bad-luck void moon having its malignant way. Cassie knows it's worse. She's crossed paths again with her life's nemesis, the man who destroyed everything six years before. He's Jack Karch, a private investigator by day who does bloody work for casino owners by night. Walking back into his sights is the worst thing that's ever happened to Cassie.
Getting out alive will take all her skill and luck and faith in that one good thing…
