It was a really great read, the narrator was just great I wish he could real all my books! He just takes you right into the story
Having read other Michael Connelly books I already knew about Bob Baccus as the killer but didn't know about agent Walling 's own problem history. Twisted plot

The book started off in a lull for me. Your average, you know this is gonna be a thriller-suspense-serial killer kind of thing but somewhere pretty early on things got deeper.
I'm a no spoiler gal, with that I can say it's a great listen. The narrator at first grated on my ears but as u learned the characters and fell for them I could not have imagined anyone else offering up their voice.
The book is a page turner, an adventure. You are thrown behind the curtain of the FBI during the chase of a serial killer, rooting for love but seeing it also as sex people can have in an intense situation, you follow the clues right along with our main character, right off a cliff and then climb back up to do it all over again.
It was s treat.
Written in the late nineties, Michael Connelly's THE POET provides not only an engaging thriller, but also a sense of how we've come to take for granted the amazing technological advances if the current century. A good read.
Love all Michael Connelly novels. The narrator is the best. If you enjoy mysteries, here is a good one! Enjoy.
I loved that it had soo many different twist in it.. u really didn't know who the poet was till the ending.
Omg yes this plot had me going.. I actually was stuck on the pedifiler killing the kids and police I never expected another cop to be doing it. And then I was like him thinking it was the lady cop and it really wasn't her.. it was soo crazy had me hooked from start to finish.
My favorite scene had to be when gamble came to pick up the camera dressed ad a lady. That part I did not expect and threw me off.
Who done it?
I haven't read a Michael Collins book that didn't surprise me at the end. His writing is crisp and compelling. This book - one of his first - grabbed on and held on. We were surprised when we got to the apparent end and saw that two hours remained! Very satisfying!!!
Michael Connelly is the best. I have been reading the Bosch series, and after 6 books decided to read all of his books in the order he published them. This book starts slow, but the twists and excitement in the second half are totally worth it. 3 star on performance because of the slow start
