Off on Another Tangent
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2017
Off on another tangent that began with The Poet. The Scarecrow is scary, and smart, but aren't all villains? And Rachel, she's an angel-villain, smart and brave, and the one you want on your team. I have read so many books by Michael Connelly he's part of my family, and I plan to continue. His prose is spare, spotty, often lax--he could do with a better copy reader and the book should be docked half a star--but his characters and situations are bewitching, and if culled from real life are well chosen. The treasure here was the description of an internet factory, we always wanted to know how those servers worked and who operated them, how websites are created and maintained, how storage sites are cleared and culled, and how the impartial is anything but. I missed Harry, who is also part of my family but Jack is a trip.
