About this deal
His books, which include the Harry Bosch series and the Lincoln Lawyer series, have sold more than eighty million copies worldwide. That being said, the many twists and turns made it a worthwhile experience (and I definitely still trust Richard's recommendations *). The book also features the first appearance of FBI agent Rachel Walling, a recurring character in Connelly's novels.
While there are lots to like in this story, there are a few issues that leave this listener unfulfilled.Jack is taken along on the operation to arrest Gladden, who kills one of the FBI agents, Rachel's ex-husband Gordon Thorson. En los tiempos que tenemos en 2023 nos parece normal toda clase de delitos que se cometen gracias la extensión de internet. This book and character mesh with Michael Connley's Harry Bosch series, so fans of that series may want to give this one a try.
a journalist whose beat is crime, deadly crime mostly, and while his stories are gritty and gripping, they’re tempered by being after-the-fact accounts. As a reporter, Jack specializes in writing about homicide cases and he decides to do an article on his brother's death. Sean had been severely depressed, agonizing over his failure to solve a particularly brutal homicide. Those answers lead him to other 'suspicious' cop suicides and the discovery of a foundation in Washington DC that collects statistics on such deaths. Now here I am eight years later, sitting in the same room at the Chateau Marmont where Jack McEvoy encountered Robert Backus, and I am trying to explain to you and myself why I have just written a sequel to The Poet.Along the way, Jack will become involved with a beautiful FBI agent named Rachel Walling and before all is said and done, Jack winds up putting himself in the sights of the deadly Poet. The suicide note is a cryptic excerpt from a macabre Edgar Allan Poe poem, certainly focused on death but so enigmatic as to be almost meaningless as a final message to the world. Cómo sabía Connelly que una de las primeras cosas para las que se iban a usar internet sería para delinquir? Following his leads, protecting his sources, muscling his way inside a federal investigation, Jack grabs hold of what is clearly the story of a lifetime. Jack es reportero, no es un detective ni un investigador privado, por lo que no tiene los instintos ni la preparación.
Despite the apparent implausibility that foul play was involved, Jack is reluctant to accept that his brother had succumbed to depression. A romance will get the ole "heave-ho" from me in a heartbeat and if a romance or emotionally loaded character line takes over a book I'm still prone to "move on". It certainly takes place in the same gritty US crime atmosphere - FBI agent Rachel Walling is even an import from previous Bosch novels - but McEvoy as a character is a little more grounded, a little more professionally certain of himself, a little less angst ridden, a little less sure of his relationships with the fairer sex and - well, just different than Harry! and on, there was information that I found myself bogged down with and I began to "count pages" wanting something to happened besides endless meetings.
