Jack focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer from the projects who has confessed to police that he brutally raped and strangled one of his crack clients. Forced to take a buy-out from the LA Times, he' s got 30 days left on the job. His last assignment? Training his replacement, a low-cost reporter just out of J-school. But Jack has other plans for his exit. He is going to go out with a bang - a final story that will win the newspaper journalism' s highest honor - a Pulitzer prize. But as Jack delves into the story he soon realises that Alonzo' s so-called confession is bogus. The investigation leads him to a killer known as The Scarecrow who has worked completely below the police and FBI radar. Jack is soon off and running on the biggest story he' s had since The Poet crossed his path twelve years before - but The Scarecrow knows he' s coming. . . Jack McEvoy is at the end of the line as a crime reporter.
