Description

The hero of The Poet and The Scarecrow is back in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. Jack McEvoy, the journalist who never backs down, tracks a serial killer who has been operating completely under the radar--until now.

Veteran reporter Jack McEvoy has taken down killers before, but when a woman he had a one-night stand with is murdered in a particularly brutal way, McEvoy realizes he might be facing a criminal mind unlike any he's ever encountered.
Jack investigates--against the warnings of the police and his own editor--and makes a shocking discovery that connects the crime to other mysterious deaths across the country. Undetected by law enforcement, a vicious killer has been hunting women, using genetic data to select and stalk his targets.

Uncovering the murkiest corners of the dark web, Jack races to find and protect the last source who can lead him to his quarry. But the killer has already chosen his next target, and he's ready to strike.

Terrifying and unputdownable, Fair Warning shows once again why "Michael Connelly has earned his place in the pantheon of great crime fiction writers" (Chicago Sun-Times).

    It’s great to see Mr Connelly back to the top of his game with another great Jack McEvoy book. I love the Bosh series of books but felt the writing was getting tired and retreaded. It goes to show fans how talented Connelly is with fresh material and characters. More McEvoy and less Bosh unless you can freshened him up!

    I usually really enjoy this author’s work, but I finally quit near the halfway point. This book literally reads like a petty rant against DNA privacy laws with virtually NOTHING happening beyond a reporter running around asking questions with little purpose other than to give the author a soapbox. A $1.99 price would still have left me feeling cheated out of a dollar.
  • Like his approach to what it’s about....
