MICHAEL CONNELLY - Scarecrow , in hardback , First Edition / Impression published by Orion in 2009 .

This book is signed by the author - I met Michael at a signing for his book , The Drop .


Another novel by the author of The Poet and The Lincoln Lawyer - this is the second book to feature Jack McEvoy and follows on from The Poet .

Jack McEvoy is at the end of the line as a crime reporter . Forced to take a buy-out from the LA Times as the newspaper grapples with dwindling readership and revenues , he's got 30 days left on the job . His last assignment ? Training his replacement , a low cost reporter just out of J-school who couldn't find the police station if it was right next store to the Times , which it is . 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 she has fallen for the oldest reporter's trick in the book . 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 realizes 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 - knows he's coming . "
