Publisher's Summary

With his four Harry Bosch novels, Michael Connelly joined "the top rank of a new generation of crime writers" (Los Angeles Times). Now Connelly returns with his most searing thriller yet - a major new departure that recalls the best work of Thomas Harris (Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs) and James Patterson (Along Came a Spider)Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work - a devious cop killer who's left a coast-to-coast trail of "suicide notes" drawn from the poems of Edgar Allan Poe. It's the story of a lifetime - except that "the Poet" already seems to know that Jack is trailing him. . .Here is definitive proof that Michael Connelly is among the best suspense novelist working today.

A must if you are into the Harry Bosch series

This is a fantastic stand alone story. However, it is best enjoyed as a chronological part of the Harry Bosh series from the same author. My suggestion is to work your way through Michael Connelly's books by year of release not by the different character lists. Many of the characters appear in each others books and it is great to reacquaint yourself with characters you remember from previous stories. This book is by any comparison, one of the best of its genre.

Michael Connelly never disappoints

Another cracking story from Michael Connelly which kept me listening even whilst shopping in the supermarket which meant I forgot most of the things I went in for! Narration was excellent too and added to the plot well.
