Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget
cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using
his final days at the paper to write the
definitive murder story of his career.
He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail
after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the
story, Jack realizes that Winslow''s so-called confession is bogus.
The kid might actually be innocent.
Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poet
made his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who
operates completely below police radar--and with perfect knowledge
of any move against him. Including Jack''s.
