Add to Wish List
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
paperto 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.

Re: The Scarecrow
Michael Connelly simply can't write a bad story. I am reading one of his older books right now, City of Bones, and he just writes better with time. The scarecrow will be my next read.

I read all of Michael's books and this one sounds awesome.
I'd love to have a signed copy for my home library. Thanks.
