    Story

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    Tom says: "Is Connelly the Best Crime Writer Or What?"
    "Poor character development for starters"
    Overall

    I just couldn't relate to the characters, including the protagonist. Not only were the characters under developed, but what we do get from them makes them unlikeable. I couldn't root for anyone so it made the dragged out ending with it's forced twists that much more unsatisfying. This is the first book I've read of Michael Connelly, and if this is indicative of his overall work I think I'll pass on future titles. Last, the narrator did this book no favors.
