The Scarecrow (Excerpt) Audiobook

The Scarecrow (Excerpt)

Regular Price:$0.00

Publisher's Summary

Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career.

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.

    Story
    "Wasn't expecting that.."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Scarecrow (Excerpt) to be better than the print version?

    i have never seen the printed version but I am pretty sure I it is all the same. short and sweet.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly’s story?

    this was a very short story, I honestly didn't look at the minutes before I purchased this book. I was thinking I was going to get into another Harry Bosch story or something similar to it, but that isn't what this is.


    What does Peter Giles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    emotion.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    None
