Chasing the Dime is the twelfth novel written by Michael Connelly, and the first (and, currently, only) novel featuring entrepreneur Henry Pierce. The book was published November of 2002.

The novel's title is a phrase used by Pierce and his associates in reference to their pursuit of a molecular computer the size of a dime. The title may also refer to Pierce's pursuit of the missing woman whose phone number he inherited, since the slang term "dime" can be used to describe a beautiful woman (a perfect 10).
