Customer Review

on June 13, 2008
Connelly breaks away from his highly-accomplished Bosch series to tell the tale of a reporter Jack McEvoy who's brother (a detective) has apparently taken his own life. McEvoy eventually works out it was homicide, sees links to other suspicious cases and convinces the FBI there's a serial killer at work (lines from poems by Edgar Allan Poe are found on all the victims - hence the nickname) He then inveigles his way into the investigation.

The story fairly rattles along giving good insight into the world of tabloid reporters,as well as the skills used in the Bureau task force. Tension builds up nicely as the force gets closer to the killer, and twists and false trails abound.Many of these are predictable, and the ending is a little too convenient. Despite obvious cliches this is still a very good read and is strongly recommended.
