The Poet

The Poet Summary


An electrifying standalone thriller that breaks all the rules! With an introduction by Stephen King.

Death is reporter Jack McEvoy's beat: his calling, his obsession. But this time, death brings McEvoy the story he never wanted to write--and the mystery he desperately needs to solve. A serial killer of unprecedented savagery and cunning is at large. His targets: homicide cops, each haunted by a murder case he couldn't crack. The killer's calling card: a quotation from the works of Edgar Allan Poe. His latest victim is McEvoy's own brother. And his last...may be McEvoy himself.

The Poet5 star

I have to agree with Stephen King’s forward to this book; it will become a true classic. It pulls you in and twists you along with Jack seeking answers and finding reasons to suspect almost everyone. I’m fascinated by profiling and enjoys the combination of that world along with a journalists search for his story.55

A Great Storyteller5 star

This book was written not by a great author, it was written be a great storyteller. Every scene is expertly described, every character is carefully crafted and the plot and the ending will keep you riveted throughout the book.55


Great read.5 star

All of the cliches apply - page-turner, spell-binding, twisting-plot, and more, but the best part is - a really enjoyable read.55

The Poet5 star

Once again Mr. Connelly has written an enthralling page turner. Pivot points are ultimately the biggest surprises. I realize this is not one of his recent books but it is equally great. The first book of his I read was The Closers, then I read others and basically skipped around his later books finally realizing I should start at the beginning of his Bosch books and decided to read through each one chronologically as he wrote them which also means the McEvoy and Haller books mixed in. I am on to the next book like a detective. Ha! Great read, great read!55
