He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent.
Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poetmade his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar--and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including Jack's.

This book was a great listen. I kept wanting to get into the car just to listen to it. The way in which Connelly draws you into the web of secrecy is fantastic. The characters come alive for you. Especially Jack and the evil guy.
This book is worth reading just for the insight into how dangerous it is to put one's information into the new online social networks! Listening as the "bad guys" found out everything they needed to know about a victim made me stop and assess just what info of mine a good detective could piece together.
Connelly as always has a good story and good characters, and this book is certainly no different. Now I just have to wait for the next one.
This was a real "page turner." The Poet is one of my favorites and this return of Jack and Rachel was just as intriguing...Well done..great ending!
Excellent story . . . good reader. Connelly remains a great story teller. And his insight into current day newsrooms is tack on.
m connelly never disappoints. this entertained me while doing my power walk - walked much further than planned as i didn't want to turn the nano off!!
other than the constant mispronunciation of a few words, this was a really enjoyable story. the Narrator was easy to listen to.
Excellent listen! Kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. SO much to learn about security issues! I will never feel safe again.
You ping and pong between the reporter and his FBI girl friend, at one end, and the scare crow, a particularly nasty serial killer. The killer is a computer wizard who can snoop on and reach out to hurt people using the internet in a rather disturbingly realistic way.
It is typical Connelly, and if you like Connelly, you will like this one.
