Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of June 2020: Fair Warning is Michael Connelly’s third book featuring Jack McEvoy, the tireless reporter whom the author views as his alter ego. The story starts out briskly and never slows, as McEvoy is approached by a couple of Los Angeles detectives who inform him that he is a person of interest in a murder investigation. Tina Portrero has been found dead, and McEvoy spent a night with her about a year prior. With that, we are off and running—and anyone who has read the previous McEvoy books (The Poet and The Scarecrow) will know that this reporter’s drive and talent will lead to an investigation of his own. As Jack begins to uncover the details behind Tina’s death, he opens up a much bigger case. There appears to be a serial killer on the loose, and as McEvoy digs further—and eventually employs the aid of others, including former FBI agent Rachel Waller—he is drawn into the business of DNA analysis, and eventually into the dark web. This is dangerous, sometimes creepy stuff, and Connelly manages to make a salient point about the importance of good journalism at the same time that he drives his plot to a satisfying end. —Chris Schluep, Amazon Book Review --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Fair Warning brings back reporter Jack McEvoy, a character I always liked every bit as Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller or Renee Ballard... Connelly [is] at the very top of his game."

-- "New York Daily News"

"Connelly is in terrific form here, applying genre conventions to the real-life dangers inherent in the commercial marketing of genetics research. In...first-rate detective work.

-- "New York Times"

"Darkly essential reading for every genre fan who's ever considered sending a swab to a mail-order DNA testing service."

-- "Kirkus Review (starred review)"

"Intruiging...Throughout his outstanding thrillers, Michael Connelly has expertly woven contemporary issues into solid plots...Connelly also has achieved this in his novels about journalist Jack McEvoy, who makes his third most welcome appearance in Fair Warning.

-- "South Florida Sun-Sentinel"

"Score another one for the dean of America's crime writers... Fair Warning sheds light on the murky billion-dollar world of DNA testing...The subject [is] ripe for a good mystery. And Michael Connelly is just the guy to write it."

-- "Denver Post"

Fair Warning is a chilling, of-the-moment crime story you won't be able to put down."

-- "Crime Reads"
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
