The Poet Free read Ø 106 ✓ ❮PDF / Epub❯ ☉ The Poet Author Michael Connelly – Denver crime beat reporter Jack McEvoy specializes in violent death So when his homicide detective brother kills himself McEvoy copes in the only way he knows how he decides to write the story But his Denver crime beat reporter Jack MThe only way he knows how he decides to write the story But his research leads him to suspect a serial killer is at work a devious murdere. 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

The PoetDenver crime beat reporter Jack McEvoy specializes in violent death So when his homicide detective brother kills himself McEvoy copes in. 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
