The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly (audiobook)

10 CDs
11 hours
Read by Peter Giles

The Scarecrow re-unites two characters from 1996's The Poet, crime reporter Jack McEvoy and FBI agent Rachel Walling. McEvoy is a victim of the ever-shrinking newsroom phenomenon that is hitting newspapers all across the country. He is the 99th out of 100 layoffs and he decides to go out with a bang. He is going to make the L.A. Times regret firing him by writing a Pulitzer prize quality series of articles.

I don't want to do a book report here and re-tell the entire plot, but suffice it to say McEvoy and Walling dig up a lot more than they expected and lots of adventure and mayhem ensue. This is a highly entertaining book on CD. It made me look forward to my morning and afternoon commute - I wanted to listen to more.

I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
