Today’s post will be on Michael Connelly’s crime fiction novel The Poet.
The Poet is about a trail of police murders. A reporter, Jack, gets involved as it is his brother, a police officer, who has just been murdered. It follows a continuing trail of such murders of police officers. There is a short poem left at each of the murder scenes. They dub the murderer ‘The Poet’. Jack manages to get into the FBI ring investigating the crimes and realises something just isn’t right. They get a fax – the next murder victim has been picked. And it’s who he trusts the most that’s killing him.
