The hero of The Poet and The Scarecrow is back in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. Jack McEvoy, the journalist who never backs down, tracks a serial killer who has been operating completely under the radar--until now.
Veteran reporter 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, McEvoy realizes 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--and makes a shocking discovery that connects the crime to other mysterious deaths across the country. Undetected by law enforcement, a vicious killer has been hunting women, using genetic data to select and stalk his targets.
Uncovering the murkiest corners of the dark web, Jack races to find and protect the last source who can lead him to his quarry. But the killer has already chosen his next target, and he's ready to strike.
Terrifying and unputdownable, Fair Warning shows once again why "Michael Connelly has earned his place in the pantheon of great crime fiction writers" (Chicago Sun-Times).
**BONUS CONTENT: This special audiobook edition includes an exclusive conversation between author Michael Connelly and Myron Levin, Executive Director/Founder of FairWarning, an investigative news organization.**
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 former newspaper reporter quietly working for a consumer affairs website. But one day the police come calling, looking into the murder of Tina Portrero, a woman Jack had a fling with 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. Primary narrator Peter Giles uses a gravelly voice for Connelly’s down-on-his-luck writer turned podcaster, while second narrator Zach Villa’s ultrasmooth, quietly intense delivery makes the killer sound far more in control than the hero. This two-man setup boosts the tension as their showdown speeds toward its suspenseful conclusion. As the host of Murder Book, Connelly has real experience with podcasting. That gives this thriller a lived-in, timely feel—even though it’s been 11 years since the last book in this series. Bravo to Michael Connelly for finding the perfect way to bring a great character out of retirement!
