Can’t Wait Wednesday: Fair Warning

Can’t Wait Wednesday was once Waiting on Wednesday, but the purpose is the same: for bloggers to highlight what they’re waiting on. This week that is Fair Warning 

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 Raymond Chandler of this generation” (Associated Press), 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.

Having being introduced to Connelly’s writing through his Renee Ballard series (with appearances by Harry Bosch), I find myself paying attention to his writing that aren’t Harry Bosch — like this one.

Connelly visited here a few weeks ago, and talked about his career as a journalist, which is why, Fair Warning, the third in the Jack McEvoy series so intriguing. He spoke a little about working for editors and working with cops and the art of writing as a journalist.

Added bonus to this series? This is only book three. At least I can occupy myself with the other titles in the series until the newest one is released!
