Great story

I was hooked!! I couldn't put the book down!! I loved how the characters were very well described. I was not expecting that plot twist! If you love a page turner that you can't put down this is the book for you to read.

Wasn't expecting that..

Would you consider the audio edition of The Scarecrow (Excerpt) to be better than the print version?

i have never seen the printed version but I am pretty sure I it is all the same. short and sweet.

What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly’s story?

this was a very short story, I honestly didn't look at the minutes before I purchased this book. I was thinking I was going to get into another Harry Bosch story or something similar to it, but that isn't what this is.

What does Peter Giles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?


Any additional comments?
