Even his friends in the Denver PD thought Sean's shooting in the backseat of his car looked like a suicide, right clown to the motive: his despondency over his failure to clear a high-profile murder. This was one of the earlier Connelly books and he ended up inserting these characters into the larger Bosch world novels later on. And so I have learned that it is important to take care in the fictional universe of your own creation. The book was published in June of 1996, and won the 1997 Dilys Award (for Connelly's second consecutive Dilys win, after 1996's The Last Coyote), the 1997 Anthony Award, and the 1997 Nero Award.

I think I still like The Micky Haller character best of his creations but this is my favorite book "outside that series" so far. Jack finds evidence suggesting that the killer has a connection to the FBI, tracing a "boasting" fax back to Thorson. No está mal, no es un Augusto Ledesma pero es que tampoco me sorprendió lo que me esperaba al principio.

Within the continuity of Connelly's fictional Los Angeles, the book was a nonfiction account of the investigation that was ostensibly written by McEvoy. When his investigative efforts reveal that many of them, including that of his brother, are in fact homicides, the story kicks into high gear. As I watched my daughter grow it began to bother me that I had created a fictional world where a killer like Robert Backus could walk free.

Además de la narración en primera persona de Jack, tenemos la voz del sospechoso, que fue intensa debido al tema pero bastante esencial para la historia. Michael Connelly breaks these rules in The Poet and in the follow-up novel, The Narrows by mixing the first and third person.

If in the first person the point of view can only be that of the central character via what is perceived by the five senses.

Things get resolved with regards to the Poet in "The Narrows" though and I liked that one much better, I gave it 4 stars. Finally I realized the end was not the end, but only a fake end, and then the "real story" was about to begin. Una de las agentes, Rachel Walling, personaje habitual en las novelas de Michael Connelly, desempeña un papel fundamental en la investigación, aunque finalmente el asesino consiga escapar.However, when dealing with the main suspect in the murders, the style switches to the third person in those chapters.

As Backus prepares to sodomize and then kill Jack, Rachel appears and knocks Backus out the window and down a long hill. The novel begins with the apparent suicide of McEvoy's twin brother, but like all of Connelly's novels, it turns into something else entirely. Before I wrote the first line — Death is my beat — I knew that the book would end with the killer slipping away into the darkness.As Jack's investigation continues it becomes clear that he is on the path of a serial killer of unprecedented savagery. Este es el comienzo de la historia que tendrá como protagonistas además de McEvoy a un equipo del FBI que buscarán sin descanso a un asesino en serie que firma sus crímenes con poemas de Edgar Allan Poe. Don't get me wrong, Michael Connelly's brand of mystery/thriller writing isn't exactly subtle, but echo-chamber effects made moments of tension feel downright hokey. Now Harry Bosch is heading straight into the path of the most ruthless and inventive murderer he has ever encountered. But I have come to realize that the line between reality and the created world of a novel is thinnest when it comes to human feelings and desires.
