The Poet Michael Connelly read online review & book description:


An electrifying standalone thriller that breaks all the rules! With an introduction by Stephen King.

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.

    This book is amazing, it kept me captivated from beginning to end! I have already recommended it to all of my close friends. As a former psychology major, now minor, this book was right up my alley and did not disappoint

    This book was pure gold with mystery novels. You think you have a guess on how it ends but you never truly know. If you're a fan I highly suggest this book, I've read it several times and love it more and more

    Once again Mr. Connelly has written an enthralling page turner. Pivot points are ultimately the biggest surprises. I realize this is not one of his recent books but it is equally great. The first book of his I read was The Closers, then I read others and basically skipped around his later books finally realizing I should start at the beginning of his Bosch books and decided to read through each one chronologically as he wrote them which also means the McEvoy and Haller books mixed in. I am on to the next book like a detective. Ha! Great read, great read!

    Connelly grabs you keeps you turning pages. His misdirection is epic, keeping you guessing up till the final last couple chapters.
  • Rivetting!

    This is the one that started it all. If you are a Michael Connelly fan, you have to read this book! It may be his best work, IMHO. I read it after reading several of his other works, in order to get up to speed on later references. I loved it so much, I've read it two times since. You won't be disappointed.
