Publisher Description

The apparent suicide of his policeman brother sets Denver crime reporter Jack McEvoy on edge. Surprise at the circumstances of his brother's death prompts Jack to look into a whole series of police suicides, and puts him on the trail of a cop killer whose victims are selected all too carefully. Not only that, but they all leave suicide notes drawn from the poems of writer Edgar Allan Poe in their wake.

More frightening still, the killer appears to know that Jack is getting nearer and nearer. An investigation that looks like the story of a lifetime might also be Jack's ticket to a lonely end.

An 'unputdownable' read. Truly brilliant

Of all Connelly's books, 'The Poet' (closely followed by 'Echo Park') is possibly his best work yet. It was a bit slow to get into at first but after a few chapters I was gripped. Crime writing at its best with enough twists, turns and building tension in the plot you can't help but read on. I have recommended this book to various friends and family and, so far, no one has been disappointed.
