New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly has written one explosive thriller after another featuring Detective Harry Bosch. Now, in an electrifying departure, he presents a novel that breaks all the rules and will keep your heart racing and your mind guessing until the very last page. 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 Allen Poe. His latest victim is McEvoy's own brother. And his last...may be McEvoy himself.

I don't know if there are multiple audio versions of The Poet out there, or if they just love to re-copyright things every few years, but the 1996 audible edition felt like it undermined ...

BLUF: The poet has a slow start, but the wait is well worth it. Jack McEvoy is a news reporter who has a plum job. He is able to make his own hours and chase his own stories. The topic? Death.

3.0 The Poet
My issue with this book involves the big "reveal" at the end, which in my mind, breaks the veil of credibility. This is a matter of taste: some people don't need a lot of reality inserted in their plot twists, but I think for me, after investing so much in a novel, it's important not to cheat the re...
