About this eBook

A Jack McEvoy Thriller

He raised his head off the bed and brought his mouth to her ear.
'People call me The Shrike,' he whispered.

In this thriller from #1 bestselling author Michael Connelly, a murderer stalks the shadows and stalwart journalist Jack McEvoy finds himself on the trail of a serial killer who has been operating for years completely under the radar.

Jack has taken down killers before, but when a woman he once had a one-night stand with is murdered in a particularly brutal way, he realises he might be facing a criminal mind unlike any he's ever encountered. A hunter with a unique kill signature.

Against the warnings of the police and his own editor, Jack sets out to track down the predator, walking a thin line between investigation and obsession, and he makes a shocking discovery, connecting mysterious deaths across the country. Is the link between targets the personal data shared by the victims themselves?

A masterful thrill-ride exposing a terrifying dark side of the Information Age...

Enjoyable Jack McEvoy story. He partners again with Rachel Walling, former FBI profiler and former lover.

A crime story that has us believing that and old reporter is a seasoned member of the information highway. The book has great flow and holds us from beginning to end. It leaves us with the belief that there are more stories to come.

A standard action/mystery novel, based on an implausible DNA privacy hook. Not Connelly's strongest; he seems to be struggling with making McEvoy a compelling character, and the writing is fairly bland. Still, it has a high-speed action scene on the 101 freeway in LA.
