Michael Connelly – The Poet

I finally got around to one of Connelly’s most famous books. My Mom read it after me.

The Poet from 1996.

A sequel, The Narrows, was published in 2004.

It’s the one where journalist Jack McEvoy meets FBI agent Rachel Walling. No

It’s excellent. And a good first Michael Connelly book, if you haven’t read him.

Jack McEvoy is a Denver crime reporter with the stickiest assignment of his career. His twin brother, homicide detective Sean McEvoy, was found dead in his car from a self-inflicted bullet wound to the head–an Edgar Allen Poe quote smeared on the windshield. Jack is going to write the story. The problem is that Jack doesn’t believe that his brother killed himself, and the more information he uncovers, the more it looks like Sean’s death was the work of a serial killer.
