With his four Harry Bosch novels, Michael Connelly joined "the top rank of a new generation of crime writers" (Los Angeles Times). Now Connelly returns with his most searing thriller yet-a major new departure that recalls the best work of Thomas Harris (Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs) and James Patterson (Along Came a Spider).
Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the novel opens, Jack''s twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work-a devious cop killer who''s left a coast-to-coast trail of "suicide notes" drawn from the poems of Edgar Allan Poe. It''s the story of a lifetime-except that "the Poet" already seems to know that Jack is trailing him....
Here is definitive proof that Michael Connelly is among the best suspense novelist working today.
