The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly Book Summary

Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paperto write the definitive murder story of his career.

He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent.

Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poetmade his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar--and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including Jack's.

Bonus materials include an in-depth interview with the author about writing "The Scarecrow" along with his exciting travel photos-plus a link to an online promotional video and links within the text to a fictitious website based on the novel and a teaser chapter from his next book, "Nine Dragons."

The Scarecrow (Michael Connelly) Book Reviews

IntenseKeeps you enthralled the whole time you are reading. I found it very hard to put down and did not like interruptions. Finished the book the same day I started it and would recommend it to others..Score: 5/5

Not one of my favoritesI didn't think this was one of the authors best stories but I always enjoy his books. They are easy reading and the stories are usually easy to follow. One piece of instruction I'd like to give Connelly: when you "shake your head" it means NO. To say yes, you NOD your head. He confused me numerous times in this book! Just sayin'..Score: 2/5

The ScarecrowI don鈥檛 think The Scarecrow is as good a read as The Poet. It begins really slowly and takes some time to set up the plot and draw you in. Once that happens it鈥檚 a highly suspenseful second half. At this point I don鈥檛 think Jack is as well developed as either Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller. Bosch in particular has so much history to draw on and additionally a truly unique personality. I hope to see more of that in Jack as time passes. I think Connelly missed an opportunity in this book by not bringing forward any of Jack鈥檚 feelings toward his twin brother or his sister who both died tragically and could have shaped the character more..Score: 4/5
