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