The Poet

La morte è il mio mestiere ci guadagno da vivere ci costruisco la mia reputazione professionale Io tratto la morte con la passione e la precisione di un becchino Protagonista di uesto thriller è un giornalista di Denver specializzato. Oh mid 90s how uaint you seem in this book published in 96 with your dial up internet connections faxes pagers landline phones and new fangled digital cameras Perhaps the thing dating this the most is the idea that The Rocky Mountain News editors biggest concern is that they ll get scooped by another newspaper in the fast paced world of print journalism and not that their entire industry will collapse and they ll be out of business by 2009 Of course if all their reporters acted like Jack McEvoy it s no wonder they went broke Jack s twin brother was a cop who apparently shot himself but when Jack decides to exploit his tragic death by writing a story about police suicides the research indicates that a serial killer has been stalking cops across the country and making it look like they killed themselves Soon Jack has blackmailed his way onto an FBI task force chasing the killer by ruthlessly threatening to expose the hunt and maybe spooking the guy but letting his brother s murderer potentially go free is a small price to pay to get a really righteous scoop He runs up a huge expense account bill by tagging along as the FBI tracks the killer across the country and he never really does give the Denver paper the juicy exclusives they re expecting So it seems like the old Rocky Mountain News had some pretty sloppy business practices going on when it came to covering storiesYou can probably tell that I wasn t overly fond of Jack as a character I found him self absorbed and incredibly stupid at times It s too bad because this was a better than average serial killer story with new take on the premise and lots of good twists and turns to keep it interesting If I would have found Jack sympathetic I probably would have liked it Past Due Debt Collection of print journalism and not that their entire industry will collapse and they ll be Die Visioene Van Johanna Brandt out The Neuropsychology of Self Discipline of business by 2009 Of course if all their reporters acted like Jack McEvoy it s no wonder they went broke Jack s twin brother was a cop who apparently shot himself but when Jack decides to exploit his tragic death by writing a story about police suicides the research indicates that a serial killer has been stalking cops across the country and making it look like they killed themselves Soon Jack has blackmailed his way The Accidental Activist old Rocky Mountain News had some pretty sloppy business practices going Smoke and Mirrors Short Fiction and Illusions on when it came to covering storiesYou can probably tell that I wasn t Brenda has a dragon in her blood overly fond Divan Of Rudaki of Jack as a character I found him self absorbed and incredibly stupid at times It s too bad because this was a better than average serial killer story with new take Choice Stories for Children on the premise and lots Öbür Divan of good twists and turns to keep it interesting If I would have found Jack sympathetic I probably would have liked it

Read The Poet

Osì attraverso ualche indagine e facendo alcuni collegamenti dimostra alla polizia che per la città si aggira un assassino abilissimo Il killer è chiamato Il Poeta perché fa scrivere alle sue vittime uno o due versi di Edgar Allan P. I read The Lincoln Lawyer about a week ago and have been on a sort of Michael Connelly marathon ever since I like the writer and I like his books I think I still like The Micky Haller character best of his creations but this is my favorite book outside that series so far The Poet is a psychopathic killer who has been killing for a fairly long time Not sure how long because see his victims have so far been mistaken for suicides That is they were until one of them was Jack McEvoy s brother Jack is a reporter and as such the cops nor the FBI wants to listen to him that is until he comes up with irrefutable proof that not only was his brother not a suicide but that his death is tied in with other deathsThe story is very well constructed and the book is what is usually termed a page turner I like it greatly and highly recommend itSowhy then do i give it a 4 instead of a 5 Well as some of you who ve read many of my reviews may knew I m really not into emotional stories A romance will get the ole heave ho form me on a heartbeat and if a romance or emotionally loaded character line takes over a book I m still prone to move on Well the romance doesn t actually take over here but it does weigh heavily Mr Connelly has a couple of flaws at least to me that tend to show up in his books Now and then the character do something totally illogicalwell or fail to do the common sense thing Also they have emotional baggage I mean BIG emotional baggage If these people take a plane cross country they probably have to pay extra for all that baggageit does get oldStill that aside it s a good book and I really can recommend it I like it greatly Enjoy

Nel raccontare storie a largo respiro un killer uccide ragazzi in diverse città degli Stati Uniti I poliziotti che indagano poco dopo si suicidano Il fratello gemello di uno di uesti non vuole ammettere che suo fratello si sia ucciso C. Not too much to say here except this was kind of middling This was one of the earlier Connelly books and he ended up inserting these characters into the larger Bosch world novels later on They definitely worked better in a Bosch book than a Jack McEvoy book I think it s because I honestly did not care for Jack Some of his insights as we find are incorrect He ends up doubting everything and everyone and is focused on not getting pushed out of the investigation I also have to call BS that a reporter would even be allowed into a FBI manhunt for a serial killer but of course it makes sense when you get to the ending The Poet follows Jack McEvoy who is left reeling after his twin brother s suicide When Jack starts digging though he ties his brother s investigation into a cold case to links to other suicides of police with cases they could not solve When Jack stumbles upon a probable serial killer he is pulled into the FBI investigation He meets Special Agent Rachel Walling and her bosssupervisor Robert Backus along with some other FBI agents Connelly also explores another point of view in this story we follow William Gladden who is a pedophile that a link to the cases that Jack and the FBI is trying to solveThe character of Jack eh I really didn t care for him Comparing him to Bosch he was definitely just okay Having an entire book about him and his hunt for the truth was kind of boring I think mostly because Jack s reasons for staying involved with the case were not really noble He says it s for his brother but really it s for the story and glory of what he is getting involved with His insights into things was laughable too He goes and pesters people and starts notes but when he is working with Rachel and others they are the ones who are putting things together I also didn t like the relationship with Rachel probably because Jack was uestioning it and her almost immediately about what did it mean and were they together He seemed to be written in a way to fit whatever Connelly was trying to do and not really as a developed character The Jack we meet at the beginning of the book didn t really seem the relationship typeThe other characters are so so with regards to development Gladden was developed very well and his sections were hard to read I think the book would have worked better if we didn t see inside his head though Just make the focus be on Jack like it usually is on Bosch for the Bosch booksThe writing was all over the place I have to say certain things didn t make sense and the flow didn t help things Jumping from Jack to Gladden was a lot to wade through this book was 528 page and I was glad to be doneThe setting of the book jumps all over and I can t even recall the citiesstates right now The ending didn t really work Things get resolved with regards to the Poet in The Narrows though and I liked that one much better I gave it 4 stars I will read the next book in the McEvoy series soon that s called The Scarecrow

    Some things are better left unsaid so the saying goesI personally disagree with that sentiment While very few topics are considered “taboo” any a few cultural taboos still linger; subjects upon which many writers still fear to tread due to its general unpleasantness Cancer used to be taboo So did adultery and homosexuality Taboos succeed in creating an atmosphere in which feelings never get expressed and problems

    25 stars perhaps Alternately exciting and absurd full of outrageous plot holes with a protagonist who seems lost much of the timeI really struggled with this book and almost put it down for good several times However I was told that it is important for my next Harry Bosch The NarrowsAnd to be fair about half of the book
