HOW DO YOU FIND A KILLER WHO KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU?
'AS EXCITING AS ANYTHING CONNELLY HAS WRITTEN' THE TIMES
* * * *
Jack McEvoy is a reporter with a track record in finding killers. But he's never been accused of being one himself.
Jack went on one date with Tina Portrero. The next thing he knows, the police are at his house telling Jack he's a suspect in her murder.
Maybe it's because he doesn't like being accused of a crime he didn't commit. Or maybe it's because the method of her murder is so chilling that he can't get it out of his head.
But as he uses his journalistic skills to open doors closed to the police, Jack walks a thin line between suspect and detective - between investigation and obsession - on the trail of a killer who knows his victims better than they know themselves...
Riveting, original and terrifying - this masterpiece from Michael Connelly is the best thriller you will read this summer.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Some one-night-stands are forgettable. Others send cops to your door. The long-awaited third installment 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.
