Fair Warning (Hardback)Michael Connelly (author)
- 10+ in stock
Another pulsating outing for Connelly’s never-say-die journalist sleuth Jack McEvoy, Fair Warning uncovers a sadistic serial killer who has hunted undetected for years. Pacy, violent and heart-stoppingly suspenseful, this is one of the world’s premier crime writers on top form.
The hero of The Poet and The Scarecrow is back in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. Jack McEvoy, the journalist who never backs down, tracks a serial killer who has been operating completely under the radar - until now.
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, McEvoy realizes he might be facing a criminal mind unlike any he's ever encountered.
McEvoy investigates - against the warnings of the police and his own editor - and makes a shocking discovery that connects the crime to other mysterious deaths across the country. But his inquiry hits a snag when he himself becomes a suspect.
As he races to clear his name, McEvoy's findings point to a serial killer working under the radar of law enforcement for years, and using personal data shared by the victims themselves to select and hunt his targets.
Called 'the finest American crime writer of his generation' (The Times) Michael Connelly once again delivers an unputdownable thriller that reveals a predator operating from the darkest corners of human nature - and one man courageous and determined enough to stand in his way.
