Description du produit
Revue de presse
"There is no better news than a new book from the great Michael Connelly... Fair Warning brings back reporter Jack McEvoy, a character I always liked every bit as Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller or Renee Ballard... Connelly [is] at the very top of his game."―Mike Lupica, New York Daily News
"A truly terrifying thriller... [Jack McEvoy] has appeared in only two previous novels, but they are two of Connelly's best: The Poet and The Scarecrow. McEvoy makes it three for three with this riveting tale."―Bill Ott, Booklist (starred review)
"Intruiging... Throughout his outstanding thrillers, Michael Connelly has expertly weaved contemporary issues into solid plots... Connelly also has achieved this in his novels about journalist Jack McEvoy, who makes his third most welcome appearance in Fair Warning."―Oline H. Cogdill, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Score another one for the dean of America's crime writers... Fair Warning sheds light on the murky billion-dollar world of DNA testing... the subject [is] ripe for a good mystery. And Michael Connelly is just the guy to write it."―Sandra Dallas, Denver Post
"Like all of Connelly's novels, Fair Warning is a satisfying adrenalin rush."―Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times
"A smart, propulsive thriller... Connelly excels in making investigative reporting as enthralling as any action scene. Fair Warning shines a spotlight on the shocking lack of government oversight in the field of DNA analysis and ancestry identification... Connelly spins a skin-crawling, cutting-edge mystery about the dangerous ways the data can be mined."―Shelf Awareness --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition kindle_edition.

Des trois livres dans lequel McEvoy est utilisé, Fair Warning est probablement le meilleur.
Le thriller est un genre dans lequel il est fréquent et admis pour un auteur de prendre des libertés avec la vraisemblance. Ici, ce n'est absolument pas le cas, l'intrigue est parfaitement cohérente du début à la fin.
Si on y ajoute un très bon suspens, des personnages très solides (ce qui ne sera pas vraiment une surprise pour les fans de l'auteur) et une intrigue de très haute volée, avec un vrai fond scientifique et éthique, on obtient un chef d'oeuvre.
Fair Warning : Connelly met la barre tellement haut avec ce livre que la plupart des thrillers que vous lirez après celui ci vous paraitront très mauvais.
Action is less but information regarding DNA use and abuse is very interesting and for this reason I found reading it as a kind of education on the subject.otherwise it is routine searching for a story by a good reporter.
Don’t read this book and certainly do not buy it. I will certainly never buy anything with the name Michael Connelly on.

On the other hand, the material never really caught my imagination and the characters, with the possible exception of the rather self-centred McEvoy, have little depth or interest. It is difficult to be held by events if the people involved are unable to excite any real sympathy or empathy. I found them disappointingly wooden. It may be that what Connelly has written here might translate to a cinema script more effectively, especially if good actors could flesh out the characters. I’m told that the Bosch series are much better, so I shall not give up on Connelly yet.
This book proved to be yet another instance of that failing. Having bought it on the day it was published, I had originally planned to leave it for a little while, thinking it would be nice to have something to look forward to. I genuinely intended to put it to one side for a while … and I did … for at least three hours after it was delivered. Then, however, temptation got the better of me (not a concept I have been unfamiliar with over the last fifty odd years) and I simply plunged in.
I do worry when an author I like brings out a new book – there is always the fear that the weight of expectation might prove too great, and the book won’t live up to them. After all, an author as prolific as Connelly might be expected to waver every now and again. Fortunately, however, he hasn’t wavered here.
The ageing Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch is given a rest (perhaps he is on furlough), and the protagonist this time around is the journalist, Jack McEvoy, I would be interested to know to what extent McEvoy is grounded on Connelly himself, as I know the author started out as a journalist covering the crime beat in L<os Angeles.
Jack McEvoy has appeared in a couple of novels before, and will be familiar to readers of [The Poet] and [The Scarecrow], in each of which his journalistic endeavours led to the recognition of active serial killers. This time around he is working for the Fair Warning website which conducts investigations into areas of consumer concern. Away from the main crime beat, he is brought into the case because a former acquaintance is found dead with unusual neck injuries. McEvoy is contacted by the police as a ‘person of interest’ and, true to form, manages to fall foul of the investigating detectives, which leads him to look into the case further on his own account.
As ever with Connelly, the plot is fast moving, but always underpinned with procedural viability and overall plausibility. McEvoy is far from perfect, and finds himself straying down some red herrings. He is, however, always open to advice and support, and finds himself ably assisted by his former partner Rachel Walling (one of my favourite characters from the so-called ‘Universe of Harry Bosch’) as well as one of his colleagues from the website
This is another welcome addition to the Connelly canon. My only regret now is that I read it too quickly, and will probably have to wait another year for the next one.
