Newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to use his final days at the LA Times to write the definitive murder story of his career. Focusing on the case of Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus and that the real killer is operating completely below police radar--and with perfect knowledge of any move against him.… (mere)

SERIES:
Jack McEvoy, book 2; Bosch Universe, book 20.

MAIN CHARACTERS:
Jack McEvoy-Newspaper Journalist-Crime beat, Los Angeles Times
Rachel Walling-FBI

SUMMARY/EVALUATION:
In the same way that we get to peer inside the police department with Harry Bosch and the courts and legal offices with Mickey Haller, we get to learn a bit about the newsroom with Jack.
Jack and Rachel have met before, when they were trying to find the Poet and this situation proves no less intense.
I always enjoy how this author refers back to the other stories—the rest of the Bosch universe.

AUTHOR:
Michael Connelly (7/21/56) began his education in building construction, but luckily for us, shifted to journalism and creative writing.
His subsequent career saw him first as a crime beat journalist for the Daytona Beach News Journal, then for the Fort Lauderdale News and Sun-Sentinel, and finally for the Los Angeles Times before retiring to become a full-time Novelist.
Therefore, one suspects the author feels closest to Jack McEvoy.

NARRATOR:
Peter Giles (2/15/1971). According to IMDb, Peter Giles was born “in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He is known for his work on The Life & Times of Tim (2008), Into the Dark (2018) and Portlandia (2011).”
He has many roles to his credit--some of his other narrations:
(2011) “The Fifth Witness" by Michael Connelly
(2010) "Witch and Wizard: The Gift" by James Patterson
(2010) "The Reversal" by Michael Connelly
He’s a bit whispery, but once I turn the volume up a little I enjoy Peter Giles narrations.

GENRE:
Mystery, Crime, Thriller

LOCATIONS:
Los Angeles; Las Vegas; Mesa, AZ

SUBJECTS:
Journalists, Server technology, murder

SAMPLE QUOTATION:
From Chapter 1, "The Farm":
"All the while he spoke, Carver was thinking about the intruder they had been chasing. Out there somewhere, not expecting the comeuppance that was speeding toward him. Carver and his young disciples would loot his personal bank accounts, take his identity and hide photos of men having sex with eight-year-old boys on his work computer. Then he would crash it with a replicating virus. When the intruder couldn't fix it he would call in an expert. The photos would be found and the police would be called.
The intruder would no longer be a concern. Another threat kept away by the Scarecrow.
'Wesley?' McGinnis said.
Carver came out of the reverie. The suit had asked a question. Carver had already forgotten his name.
'Excuse me?'
'Mr. Wyeth asked if the colocation center had ever been breached.'
McGinnis was smiling, already knowing the answer.
'No, sir, we've never been breached. To be honest, there have been a few attempts. But they have failed, resulting in disastrous consequences for those who tried.'"

RATING:
I gave this book 5 stars. Connelly still holds my interest all the way in and through this 20th book, and it has to be getting more complicated for him to recall all of the previous characters and situations he is so adept at weaving into the newest novel.

Tra alti e bassi letterari Connelly qui da una disreta prova, con questo thriller incalzante.
Forse ogni tanto la trama è un po' cinematografica, lasciando poco spazio ai risvolti umani tra Jack e Rachel, ma alla fine è godibile.
Non siamo però ai livelli dei romanzi con Bosch e Haller, ma si lascia leggere volentieri. ( )
  ginsengman | Apr 13, 2024 |
Connelly is a fairly new author for me and this Jack McEvoy and Rachel Waling book was a winner. It’s a fast moving action thriller even though the plot required substantial suspension of disbelief. McEvoy is a journalist who is being let go because not only has the delivery of news changed, but he costs more than the new kids in the business. Together with Waling, an FBI agent, they pair work on identifying the murderer responsible for a grisly series of murdered women. McEvoy believes he has the makings of a great story and the paper will beg him to come back. Complex and gripping. ( )

A good example of Connelly's writing style. You are in the story form the first page, no mucking around. ( )

Jack McEvoy tiene los días contados como periodista de sucesos; sus momentos de gloria languidecen y su nombre se baraja en las listas de recortes previstos por Los Angeles Times. Sin embargo, guarda todavía un último cartucho: la redacción de la que pretende que sea la crónica criminal más impactante de su carrera. Para ese propósito, elige a Alonzo Winslow, un drogadicto de dieciséis años encarcelado tras confesar la autoría del asesinato de una joven hallada estrangulada en el maletero de un coche. Jack quiere escribir acerca de la negligencia y la injusticia social que convirtieron a Winslow en un asesino. Al adentrarse en la historia, descubre que la confesión del chico es falsa y sospecha que es inocente.

Read this thriller for the thrills, the computerized crime spree. Or read it for the sad reality of what's happening to almost all newspapers. Or read it to take in the work of a writer who can tell a gripping story through characters who live and breathe.
 
A return to form for Mr. Connelly and his sharpest book since “The Lincoln Lawyer”... “The Scarecrow” begins its crime plot routinely, with more emphasis on the press than on the investigation. Then it gets jacked up to a high level of suspense by the Scarecrow’s sinister powers in the Internet’s darker reaches. And then it turns back into something familiar, as Mr. Connelly allows the long-range demands of his career to diminish this particular book’s ending.
