    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.

    Overall

    This is Connelly at his best! Absolutely gripping you from minute one and does not let go till the last chapter. Superb!

    Jack McEvoy is at the end of the line as a crime reporter. Forced to take a buy-out from the LA Times as the newspaper grapples with dwindling readership and revenues, he's got 30 days left on the job. His last assignment? Training his replacement, a low-cost reporter just out of J-school who couldn't find the police station if it was right next store to the Times, which it is.

    "If you liked The Poet, you'll like this!"
    Overall

    I very much enjoyed Connelly's books about the Poet and looked forward to another McEvoy novel. This book does not dissappoint! The shifting perspective between the killer and those who chase him, and of course the plot as a whole make it well worth listening. Peter Giles does a great job narrating.

  • The Overlook: Harry Bosch Series, Book 13

    Story

    A body has been found on the overlook near Mulholland Drive. The victim, identified as Dr. Stanley Kent, has two bullet holes in the back of his head, from what looks like an execution-style shooting. LAPD detective Harry Bosch is called out to investigate. As soon as Bosch begins retracing Dr. Kent's steps, contradictions emerge. While Kent doesn't seem to have had ties to organized crime, he did have access to dangerous radioactive substances from just about every hospital in Los Angeles County.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "Good thriller"
    "Disappointment"
    Overall

    Let me first say I am usually a big fan of Connelly's writing. I've read the books in order starting with The Black Echo and working my way through chronologically. Some books are better than others, but this was the first one I did not like. As far as the plot goes, you can see it coming. This book feels like it was written in a hurry, it's also much shorter than the other books, and the Connelly's normal twists and turns seem to be missing. The first disapointment in a long series though.

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "Don't Judge the Series by the First Book!"
    "Not convinced"
    Overall

    I had not realised at first that this book is set in the future, if I had I probably would not have taken it. The plot itself was not bad, but definately not great either. The futurustic setting make it harder to believe and is distracting. I am not convinced by this book and I hesitate to buy another one of these. The narrater is ok though.
