Notes History
Date Read Note
07.29.20 The third with Connelly's reporter character Jack McEvoy. The first in this series, The Poet, was the first Connelly book I read. As I remember (my notes here should show it), I had a problem with so many fake suicides popping up in this guy's life and the stereotypical friend character or whatever secretly being a homicidal maniac. This time around, there's still a bunch of faked deaths but I quite liked the resolution of who the killer is and how it all plays out. My hunch is that faked deaths are the main/only answer Connelly has for the question of how a reporter could be the center of a story rather than his lawyer protagonist or, of course, his police detective. If things were a straight-up murder, the reporter would be on the outside and we the reader would really want to be over the detective's head instead. But still, now that I've read something like 30 or 40 of his books, I find his writing style very easy to read and his plots are most always interesting. As such, I flew through this pretty swiftly. It's also a nice change of pace from D&D rulesbooks. I think I'll stick to normal books a couple more times before diving back into any RPG source material. I liked this one pretty good.
