Veteran reporter Jack McEvoy has taken down killers before, but when a woman he had a one-night stand with is murdered in a particularly brutal way, McEvoy realizes he might be facing a criminal mind unlike any he's ever encountered. Jack investigates--against the warnings of the police and his own editor--and makes a shocking discovery that connects the crime to other mysterious deaths across the country. Undetected by law enforcement, a vicious killer has been hunting women, using genetic data to select and stalk his targets. Uncovering the murkiest corners of the dark web, Jack races to find and protect the last source who can lead him to his quarry. But the killer has already chosen his next target, and he's ready to strike.

I am getting sick of all these violent crime novels about women being the targets of serial killers. This one is well-crafted, carefully plotted and builds suspense. Connelly has gone back to writing about Jack McAvoy, a main character who appeared in some of his early books. Connelly does a good job creating the world McAvoy lives in, the people he works with and the dilemmas he faces in his work and social life.

Great book! Connelly at his best. Look forward to his next.

Not as good as older novels. Jack McEvoy somehow irritates-his mind is only on getting credit for his media contributions. Rachel's character is weak. Some of the action, like the final crash which kills the villain but spares the hero is over the top. But the genetics and incel ideas are interesting. Two stars.

3,5 - 4 stars. Interesting subject, genetic tracing, but characterization not as real as other series. Main character (McEvoy) quite flawed.

This is one of the best suspense books I have read in a long time. Had to NOT read before trying to sleep!!!

I've really enjoyed Michael Connelly's other books. Tried to give this one a chance, but after somehow getting through a third of the book, I couldn't force myself to read any further - this one was returned without finishing.

This book is amazing. I don't know how Michael Connelly just gets better and better. Fair Warning caused me to re-read the other books in the McEvoy trilogy. If you haven't read the others, run, don't walk, to your local library, book store or Amazon.

Columbus Metro Library is awesome! Regarding those who have expressed concerns about the holds, it works as it always has if you have an account. I placed a hold for a popular author over a month ago and each time I check the waiting time is reduced. Be patient folks...

How I love Mr. Connelly's books and Fair Warning was no exception! I was totally enthralled by the DNA portions of the book, although the small amount of real-life oversight and enforcement by the FDA is rather scary. This book is definitely a cautionary story about the dangers of both the dark web, and about releasing private information pertaining to one’s DNA into the hands of a commercial enterprise that may be controlled by persons with unethical, immoral interests. It's certainly made me think twice about the latter. Interesting, too, is that FairWarning and Myron Levin actually exist. Fair Warning is another gripping, compulsively readable book by Mr. Connelly and I cannot wait to read whatever he writes next!
