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, he realises 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, walking a thin line between investigation and obsession, and makes a shocking discovery, connecting the crime to other mysterious deaths across the country. But then he himself becomes a suspect, and as he races to clear his name, Jack's findings point to a serial killer who uses personal data shared by the victims themselves to select and hunt his targets.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Some one-night stands are forgettable. Others send cops to your door. The long-awaited third instalment in Michael Connelly’s Jack McEvoy series finds the investigative reporter quietly working for a consumer affairs website after the downsizing of the newspaper industry. But one day the police come calling, looking into the unsolved murder of Tina Portrero, a woman Jack had a fling with over a year earlier. Mystified by Tina’s savage death, McEvoy returns to his old bloodhound-on-the-trail ways, creating a podcast about the case. Connelly keeps us on the edge of our seats, especially when he reconnects Jack with former FBI agent Rachel Walling, a flame from his past, and the pair use the power of DNA and the dark web to discover how Tina was targeted. As the host of the true-crime series Murder Book, the author also has real experience with podcasting, making Fair Warning feel lived in and up to the moment, even though it’s been 11 years since the last book in the series. Bravo to Connelly for finding the perfect way to bring a great character out of retirement.
Wonderful McEvoy Tale
Absolutely loved taking another trip into Jack McEvoy’s world.
Enjoyed reading this book as I not read any Connelly books since reading The Late Show.
Lacks everything . Not worth the money. Time to put the pen down Michael and reflect on your earlier achievements.
