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

An electrifying standalone thriller that breaks all the rules!


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.

THE SCARECROW


Once a hotshot in the newsroom, crime reporter Jack McEvoy is now about to be laid off at the Los Angeles Times.  Deciding to use his final work days to write the definitive murder story of his career, he focuses on Alonzo Winslow, an imprisoned sixteen-year-old drug dealer who confessed to the murder of a young woman found strangled in the trunk of her car.  But as Jack delves into the story, he realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus.  The kid might actually be innocent.

When Jack connects the L.A. trunk killing to an earlier murder in Las Vegas, he is on the biggest story he's had since the Poet crossed his path years before.  But Jack doesn’t know that his investigation has set off a digital trip wire.  The killer knows Jack is coming... and he's ready.

JACK MCEVOY IS A REPORTER WITH A TRACK
RECORD FOR FINDING KILLERS.  BUT HE'S NEVER
BEEN ACCUSED OF BEING ONE HIMSELF.


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, the police are at his door telling him he's a suspect.  Maybe it's because he doesn't like being accused of a crime he didn't commit.  Or maybe it's because the way she died is so chilling that he can't get it out of his head.  But against the warnings of the police and his editor, Jack goes on the pursuit.

Now he has to walk a thin line between suspect and detective, between investigation and obsession - as he hunts a killer who uses genetic data and knows his victims better than they know themselves...

"CONNELLY IS IN TERRIFIC FORM."

[JACK MCEVOY] HAS APPEARED IN TWO OF CONNELLY'S
