Jack McEvoy is a reporter who has just been fired from the LA Times due to downsizing. He decides to go out with a bang and make them regret firing him. He finds a case where he suspects that the accused is innocent and works it. During his investigation, he comes across another case that is eerily similar and thinks a serial killer might be at work in various states so he calls his old flame, FBI agent Rachel Walling.
The chase is exciting with the misdirection from the killer and the drama of the newspaper business, as well as the political BS from the FBI. Another well-written novel by Michael Connelly that grabs you by the scruff of your neck from page one and just doesn't relent until the final page. Really good stuff.
