This story takes a bit getting used to. It's Peter Giles. He reminds me of my Ethics 101 professor, Dr. Channel. He's a brilliant instructor, but his voice is quite hypnotic. I would even say, soporific. Peter Giles is not that bad. Just that it's got the same rhythm to it. I was going to knit and listen, but I end up scrubbing my floors and listening because otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to finish the story.

This is about Jack McEvoy. He works for Los Angeles Times and is #99 on the workforce reduction list. That last two weeks of his stay, he stumbled into a serial killer investigation. This brings back his former FBI girlfriend because he had no one to turn to. The Scarecrow feeds into my suspicions that on the hands of the wrong person, information superhighway can cause chaos and mayhem.

I like this story, but it isn't my favorite one by this author. Lincoln Lawyer is still one of my most favorite.
