Reading the Poet was like digging up an old treasure. The Poet was written at the beginning of the century and I stumbled on it. The long (600 pages) grips you from beginning to end. Jack McEvoy is the hero reporter (and victim) in the story. He begins by realizing his twin brother's suicide might not be a suicide. There are many interesting characters, some good, some evil, and some who are both. Read this book! I had to laugh because reading a book in 2020 that was written in the early 2000s means you have to deal with fax machines, dial up modems, no cell phones etc. It does not diminish the story.
