Fair Warning is a fast-paced and thrilling mystery featuring reporter Jack McEvoy. No longer writing for a print newspaper, Jack now focuses on consumer affairs for an online publication. He becomes entangled in the murder of a woman he knew from a one-night-stand when he is questioned as a suspect. His curiosity is instantly piqued and he goes on the hunt for more information and uncovers a killer using genetic data to find and stalk his victims.
While still plot driven with strong character development, what marks McEvoy apart from Connelly’s other characters is that McEvoy isn’t the confident, self-assured person that Harry Bosch, Mickey Haller or Rene Ballard are. He messes up - a lot. And he knows it, but can’t seem to stop himself. And he frequently doubts his own actions. Fans of the other series will enjoy the familiar pacing and style.
