What's Coming Next From Michael Connelly?

Connelly's next book is The Scarecrow, featuring crime reporter Jack McEvoy and FBI Agent Rachel Walling, together for the first time since The Poet. Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent. Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poet made his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar, and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including Jack's.

The Scarecrow will be released on May 12, 2009, in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, and on May 26, 2009, in the USA & Canada.
