Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Connelly hits it out of the park with one of the best thrillers of the year…Peter Giles brings a skilled and intimate feel to his reading without losing the chilling momentum.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
Narrator Peter Giles delivers the crisp and compelling copy with a deadpan tone and a pace that advances like Patton through Italy. Scenes involving the stalking of McEvoy and Walling raise hairs at the back of the listener's neck. Great characters and a satisfying ending cement Connelly's place as one of the best crime novelists working today. AudioFile
“A nail-biting thriller…This magnificent effort is a reminder of why Connelly is one of today’s top crime authors.” Publishers Weekly
“Connelly nails the death-of-newspapers theme…One of Connelly’s very best.” Booklist (starred review)
“With its ingenious story line and the twisted brilliance of the creeps involved, The Scarecrow holds its own with its predecessor.” Washington Post
“A return to form for Mr. Connelly and his sharpest book since The Lincoln Lawyer.” New York Times
