With his four Harry Bosch novels, Michael Connelly joined "the top rank of a new generation of crime writers" ( Los Angeles Times ). Now Connelly returns with his most searing thriller yet--a major new departure that recalls the best work of Thomas Harris ( Red Dragon , Silence of the Lambs ) and James Patterson ( Along Came a Spider ).

Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the novel opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work--a devious cop killer who's left a coast-to-coast trail of "suicide notes" drawn from the poems of Edgar Allan Poe. It's the story of a lifetime--except that "the Poet" already seems to know that Jack is trailing him....

Here is definitive proof that Michael Connelly is among the best suspense novelist working today.
