An electrifying standalone thriller that breaks all the rules!

Death is reporter Jack McEvoy's beat: his calling, his obsession. But this time, death brings McEvoy the story he never wanted to write--and the mystery he desperately needs to solve. A serial killer of unprecedented savagery and cunning is at large. His targets: homicide cops, each haunted by a murder case he couldn't crack. The killer's calling card: a quotation from the works of Edgar Allan Poe. His latest victim is McEvoy's own brother. And his last...may be McEvoy himself.

Not my favorite- I've read most of Connelly's books and really like the character and story structure. In going back to read ALL his books I found this one. It was easily my least favorite. The characters behaved like they were in a soap opera, so shallow and childish. I found myself rolling my eyes and just waiting for it to end.

This book was just ok. Not the best Michael Connelly book.

This is my favorite Michael Connolly book. It's one of those books where you're not sure just where the story is going. but the story pulls you in and the ride is worth the effort.

This book kept us in suspense, was well written and thoroughly enjoyable. The two main characters are likeable and believeable.

Great abridged book in 3 CDs. This is a must listen if you like this genre.

Terrible book. Stupid story, boring and not good.

I'm sure the unabridged version would be better. However, this was actually a pretty good story (even if important details were omitted). I'll be sure to listen to Michael Connelly books more often.

This book started off so abruptly I had to go back and begin again, thinking I'd missed something. I hadn't. Lots of characters and lots of information so you have to pay attention. All in all, a good tale and well told.

Grreat book, twists and all. Now on to the Narrows. I think the unabridged would have been better. I enjoyed the fast read.

This abridged version makes for a quick listen but also made it hard to follow. Definitely is a must before The Narrows - abridged or not. I think the unabridged edition is Connelly's best work.

Great book. I only wished I'd ordered it before the Narrows. Michael Connelly is a great writer.
