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.

Fast paced with plenty of twists, with credible characters with whom I enjoyed spending time. The narration helped draw me into the story and make it an enjoyable experience.

I think that this is one of Connelly's best books. I would give it a ten star rating - if I could.

I always enjoy Michael Connelly's stories, but this just wasn't up to his standards, and I didn't care for the narrator, so will avoid any books in the future with his name as narrator.
