Description

FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE HARRY BOSCH AND LINCOLN LAWYER SERIES

An electrifying standalone thriller that breaks all the rules! With an introduction by Stephen King.

Death is reporter Jack McEvoy's beat: his calling, his obsession. But this time, death brings McEvoy the story he never wanted to write--and the mystery he desperately needs to solve. A serial killer of unprecedented savagery and cunning is at large. His targets: homicide cops, each haunted by a murder case he couldn't crack. The killer's calling card: a quotation from the works of Edgar Allan Poe. His latest victim is McEvoy's own brother. And his last...may be McEvoy himself.

    Though this story starts out interesting, it lags a little in the middle of the first half. That said, the ending is so twisty and unexpected that it kept me up half the night to finish it. I have enjoyed every single one of the Bosch series, Haller series and now McEvoy is not a disappointment either. This book hit every sweet spot of serial killer vibes and truly brought the element of surprise.

    Fast, furious with twists & turns in each chapter. The characters are well defined, physically & emotionally. Great read.

    This book will not disappoint. I don’t find it as scary as King states but is well written and a fast mover. I just finished it and I feel physically tired what a tale!

    I have to agree with Stephen King’s forward to this book; it will become a true classic. It pulls you in and twists you along with Jack seeking answers and finding reasons to suspect almost everyone. I’m fascinated by profiling and enjoys the combination of that world along with a journalists search for his story.
  • A Great Storyteller

    All of the cliches apply - page-turner, spell-binding, twisting-plot, and more, but the best part is - a really enjoyable read.
