book on tape
one of the BEST stories i've read/listened to in a very long time. i rarely give 5 stars. (I rarely give 2 stars, too.)
terrific story line.
as an over the hill internet user, that entire universe is daunting and, at times, disconcerting.
The Scarecrow doesn't help my trepidation at all.
in fact, it just underlines my concern about on line banking, bill paying, etc.
really liked the here Jack.
it seems i prefer Connelly's more recent novels.

Jack McEvoy is at the end of the line as a crime reporter. Forced to take a buy-out from the Los Angeles Times as the newspaper grapples with dwindling revenues, he's got only a few days left on the job. His last assignment? Training his replacement and,he ends up reuniting with FBI Agent Rachel Walling to go after a killer who has worked completely below police and FBI radar—and with perfect knowledge of any move against him.
What Jack doesn't know is that his investigation has inadvertently set off a digital tripwire. The killer knows Jack is coming—and he's ready.
