The apparent suicide of his policeman brother sets Denver crime reporter Jack McEvoy on edge. Surprise at the circumstances of his brother's death prompts Jack to look into a whole series of police suicides, and puts him on the trail of a cop killer whose victims are selected all too carefully. Not only that, but they all leave suicide notes drawn from the poems of writer Edgar Allan Poe in their wake.

More frightening still, the killer appears to know that Jack is getting nearer and nearer. An investigation that looks like the story of a lifetime might also be Jack's ticket to a lonely end.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A suspense novel by a master of the genre. Once you're 50 pages in, I defy you to put it down * Stephen King *
Connelly is a crime writing genius * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
His methods of killing and eluding detection are infernally ingenious, adding an intellectual charge to the visceral kick of the hunt * NEW YORK TIMES *
While the themes of Connelly's LA crime novels are familiar (power, envy, corruption), his plotting is anything but * ESQUIRE *
No one writes a better modern thriller than Connelly * TIME OUT *

“Great read with fantastic end”

Not the fastest of books but once it gets you hooked it's hard to put down. Connelly gets you asking all sorts of questions and sends you all over the place in your own verdicts of the situations.

“The Poet”

I quite enjoyed the story, although it was a bit too slow at times, and as such it failed to really keep me hooked.
