    Description

    FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE HARRY BOSCH AND LINCOLN LAWYER SERIES

    An electrifying standalone thriller that breaks all the rules!

    Death is reporter Jack McEvoy's beat: his calling, his obsession. But this time, death brings McEvoy the story he never wanted to write - and the mystery he desperately needs to solve. A serial killer of unprecedented savagery and cunning is at large. His targets: homicide cops, each haunted by a murder case he couldn't crack. The killer's calling card: a quotation from the works of Edgar Allan Poe. His latest victim is McEvoy's own brother. And his last...may be McEvoy himself.

    ©1996 by Michael Connelly. (P)1996 Brilliance Audio, all rights reserved.

    Un très bon moment

    La diction et le jeu d'acteur de Buck Schirner servent à merveille cet excellent roman de Michael Connelly. Très bon divertissement

    Great Villain Mystery

    This story revolves around reporter Jack McEvoy and FBI agent Rachel Walling. While I read all of Connelly in order years ago, I actually listened to the sequel of The Poet, the Harry Bosch novel The Narrows, first. Even though I knew who the villain was this was a riveting story.

    You don't have to listen to many of Connelly's novel in order, but it's essential to read the Poet first if you want maximum shock value.

    A great audio experience...

    Is Connelly the Best Crime Writer Or What?

    Michael Connelly is a master. Connelly started out as a writer for a newspaper so it makes sense he would have a story about a reporter. I really like how he switched the point of view between Jack McEvoy (the reporter) and a creepy pedophile/murderer. At first there seems to be no connection in the storyline, but eventually it becomes apparant that these two are destined to clash. When I realized how early the book was was climaxing I was happy that my radar for the bad guy seemed to be intact. I was wrong.

    Isn't it fun to read 20 year old books? People having to find pay phones, dial-up internet connections and no cell phone tracking.

    Best Connelly I have listened to

    I have followed Harry Bosch and the Lincoln Lawyer, and I came to this one with some skepticism, putting it down after a day because I decided I did not want a detective book about a pedophile and murderer. When I needed a new read, I picked it back up, and I was soon hooked. This was the most multilayered and tightly knit Connelly I have listened to. Performance was excellent, but not at the same level as readers like auberjois or ballerini.

    Engrossing and Well Read

    If you haven't read any books by Michael Connelly, this one is sure to get you hooked. Mr. Connelly can develop a story with plot twists that can surprise you until the very end. Buck Schirner's reading was very well done. I found it hard to stop listening when I had to.

    Not for the gentle readers

    Any additional comments?

    This might be a great book but I couldn't finish it. If you are squeamish about cruelty and graphic descriptions, you'll want to give this a miss.

    Poetry and potion

    Another Michael Connelly blockbuster, with the requisite drama, tension, twists and turns. This guy never puts a foot wrong. An excellent airport thriller. Narration by Buck Schirner was particularly good, with effective voice variations. This was the first time I have heard him, and I will definitely be looking for more of his work. Production quality was likewise first class.

    Enjoyable but not if it's your 1st Connelly book

    Would you listen to The Poet again? Why?

    I liked it, I purchased it, but probably wouldn't listen again unless I'm out of new (to me) books. I'd restart the Bosch series if I couldn't read new books and then move back through to this one I suppose.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    definitely Jack is my favorite character. I liked him from other books and loved reading about his background and what brought him to L.A.

    Have you listened to any of Buck Schirner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've never come across Buck Schirner as a narrator. I didn't mind his British pronunciations of certain words such as pedophile but I email and speak with Brits on a daily basis and often misspell American English now, myself, so it just doesn't bother me in general. I did see that some people minded his English pronunciations but his lack of the accent to go with it. I didn't even pick up on the pronunciations until I read it in the reviews after listening to the book. I think he did great. I like to just not notice the voice so I can focus on the story and I was able to, so well done.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes..

    Any additional comments?

    My only additional comment would be just a suggestion. I wouldn't suggest one read this as an introduction to Connelly but I say this after having read his entire Harry Bosch series and Michael Haller series and I'm just trying to read everything he's written now. So from the standpoint of a huge fan, it was a good book for me. I probably wouldn't have gotten addicted to Connelly as an author if I'd started with this book. My first one was The Drop and then I went back adn started from the first Bosch book and went from there. That's all really. I liked getting to read about Rachel before he wrote about her in books I've already read. I believe I heard the narrator say this one was published in 1996 or so... so this was written earlier than most of what I have read from him. It was cool reading about the FBI guy in these early years that in the later books he's referenced.

    Disappointing! Falls Flat.

    I have never been disappointed in a Michael Connelly book until now. The premise holds so much promise but falls flat. Jack is such a whining weak character. Really the only fully fleshed out character. The rest never fully get explained what made them tick...Rachael or her boss. The ending gives some quick fill in but oh I am just frustrated. And I know it doesn't come later because I read the Narrows. The reasons for everything are never wrapped up. It's just sad

    Stellar Cliffhangers Ending Every Chapter!

    It has been a while since I've enjoyed a crime/mystery story as much as this one. Told through the narrative of a Denver-based newspaper reporter who became a central figure in a compelling criminal investigation, this is one you don't want to miss. If you have an interest in plausible, highly engaging crime/mystery books, this story will capture you from the very first words.

    I can't reveal more of the gist of the story, because practically anything I offer would give away some element of the plot. Just know that it is an intellectually satisfying book with twists and turns that make you want to keep listening all night. Every chapter has a mini-cliffhanger that requires you to keep listening -- or you'll lie awake thinking about for hours! I was eager to get back to ithisone every time I had to put it down. Best of all, there are no gimmicky endings here! Connelly has ended the story in a way that answers questions, resolves mysteries and leaves the reader believing that this one. . .just might be true.

    Add to that the fact that Buck Schirner's performance is masterful and you have a book that is very much worth the price of admission. I highly recommend it.

    captivating but stupid at its core

    spoilers:

    This story suffers from many flaws, but none so great as the fact that it relies on hypnotism, or rather a laughable misunderstanding of hypnotism.

    big fan of Michael Connelly generally, but this book is the exception.

    also weird: the narrator keeps enunciating the "h" in "while"... it's distracting.

    Zwar kein Bosch, aber ...

    Ganz anders als die Harry-Bosch-Reihe ist dieser Thriller von Michael Connelly, denn der Journalist Jach McEvoy ist kein dunkler Ritter mit Gerechtigkeitssinn, sondern hat ganz eigene persönliche Motive und Schwächen.
    Die erste Stunde dieses - von Buck Schirren ganz brillant gelesenem - Hörchuchs stand ich mehrfach kurz vor dem Abbruch, so langsam entwickelte sich die Geschichte um einen pädophilen Mörder und tote Polizisten. Aber dann wird es richtig, richtig spannend und überraschend. Und man kann gar nicht mehr aufhören bis man am Ende ist.

    Insgesamt sehr hörenswert

    Die Story wird aus Sicht eines Journalisten erzählt, dessen Bruder angeblich Selbstmord begnagen hat. Nachdem er herausgefunden hat, daß es ein Serienkiller ist, weitete sich die Story mehr und mehr zum Thriller aus.

    Insgesamt sehr hörenswert.

    eines der besten Bücher, die ich gehört habe

    Hammer-story, spannend, bis zum Schluss, super vorgelesen und leider viel zu schnell zu Ende, zum Glück gibt's die Fortsetzung, "the scarecrow".

    Ich glaube mehr Worte bedarf es nicht... Michael Conelly in Bestform.
