The Author

author picture

Michael Connelly decided to become a writer after discovering the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Connelly worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, primarily specializing in the crime beat.

In 1986 he and two other reporters wrote a magazine story on the crash and the survivors that was later short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize.

After three years Connelly began writing his first novel to feature LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch. The novel, won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by the Mystery Writers of America.

He lives with his family in Florida.


The Novel

Jack McEvoy is at the end of the line as a crime reporter. Forced to take a buy-out from the LA Times, he's got 30 days left on the job. His last assignment? Training his replacement, a low-cost reporter just out of J-school. But Jack has other plans for his exit. He is going to go out with a bang - a final story that will win the newspaper journalism's highest honor - a Pulitzer prize.

Jack focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer from the projects who has confessed to police that he brutally raped and strangled one of his crack clients. Jack convinces Alonzo's mother to co-operate with his investigation into the possibility of her son's innocence. But Jack's real intention is to use his access to report and write a story that explains how societal dysfunction and neglect created a 16-year-old killer.

But as Jack delves into the story he soon realises that Alonzo's so-called confession is bogus, and Jack is soon off and running on the biggest story he's had since The Poet crossed his path twelve years before. This time Jack is onto a killer who has worked completely below police and FBI radar. His investigation leads him into the digital world of data collocation services where server farms are watched over by techs who liken themselves to scarecrows - keeping the birds of prey off their clients' data. But Jack inadvertently set off a digital tripwire and the killer - the Scarecrow - now knows he's coming...


Reviews

'if crime is your bag look no further than Connelly's The Scarecrow ... a former police reporter, Connelly knows his stuff.' (Giles Foden CONDE NAST TRAVELLER )

'This summer no man's suitcase would be complete without the latest Michael Connelly novel' (SHORTLIST )

'Connelly has already proved, with his 'Lincoln Lawyer' courtroom thrillers, that there is life after his hugely successful Harry Bosch LAPD cop series. With The Scarecrow he finds yet another kind of crime fiction in which to excel' (Marcel Berlins THE TIMES )

'The greatest living American crime writer ... once again Connelly is utterly gripping.' (Henry Sutton THE MIRROR )

'Connelly takes the traditional whodunit and gives it a contemporary twist in an outstanding new thriller that is guaranteed to be one of the biggest hits of the summer.' (DAILY RECORD )

'Switching between viewpoints of McEvoy and the killers ... enables Michael Connelly to crank up the tension to an almost unbearable level.' (Mark Sanderson EVENING STANDARD )

'there's a high benchmark when it comes to Connelly novels ... this is - in many ways - the best Connelly book in some times. Detailed, meticulous, complex and intriguing ... essential reading for Connelly fans and new-comers alike, this is a highly recommended and superiour thriller.' (IMPACT (The Ultimate Action Magazine) )

'The story moves at a breathtaking pace as Connelly shows why his books fly off the shelves. Another cracker from a writer on top form.' (PA FEATURES - syndicated review )

'It's hard to believe, but Connelly just gets better.' (Carla McKay DAILY MAIL )
