I don’t think The Scarecrow is as good a read as The Poet. It begins really slowly and takes some time to set up the plot and draw you in. Once that happens it’s a highly suspenseful second half. At this point I don’t think Jack is as well developed as either Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller. Bosch in particular has so much history to draw on and additionally a truly unique personality. I hope to see more of that in Jack as time passes. I think Connelly missed an opportunity in this book by not bringing forward any of Jack’s feelings toward his twin brother or his sister who both died tragically and could have shaped the character more.
Not one of my favorites

I didn't think this was one of the authors best stories but I always enjoy his books. They are easy reading and the stories are usually easy to follow. One piece of instruction I'd like to give Connelly: when you "shake your head" it means NO. To say yes, you NOD your head. He confused me numerous times in this book! Just sayin'.
Keeps you enthralled the whole time you are reading. I found it very hard to put down and did not like interruptions. Finished the book the same day I started it and would recommend it to others.
