New Hardcover Mysteries: An Interview with Michael Connelly

Later this month 's second thriller to feature crime reporter Jack McEvoy, The Scarecrow, is scheduled for publication. McEvoy first appeared in Connelly's 1996 thriller The Poet for which he won both the 1997 and the 1997 . In The Scarecrow, McEvoy is forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, but before he goes, he uses his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. But as he delves into the story he realizes the confessor to a brutal murder may actually be innocent. He's soon tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar -- and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including McEvoy's.

Barnes & Noble has graciously allowed us to post an interview with author Michael Connelly on our site. Conducted by host Molly Pesce, Connelly examines the internet as a helpful tool for criminals, and maps out how the book’s killer uses popular sites like Facebook and LinkedIn to gather extensive information about his victims.
