New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones brings a fresh, modern take to the thriller genre that will keep you guessing until the very end.

“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.” -Jean Cocteau

Some call him friend or boss.
Some call him husband or dad.
Some call him son, even a favorite son.

But the only title that matters to him is the one the media has given him: The Poet.

A name he earned from the written words he leaves behind after he kills that are as dark and mysterious as the reason he chooses his victims.

One word, two, three, a story in a poem, a secret that only Detective Samantha Jazz can solve. Because he’s writing this story for her.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

Detective Samantha Jazz and her partner, Detective Lang, are on a case of a serial killer, that Jazz dubs “The Poet,” as he always lives a bit from a poem on paper in his dead victim’s mouth. She begins to find that maybe this killer is following her, even to be seen outside her door, although no one ever sees his face as he wears a hat with a black hoodie, the hood up and he keeps his face from being seen. Between the killer, the memories of her father dying in her arms that she learns was a ‘dirty’ cop, and even an FBI agent that was her lover in the past is back in her life, her life grows stressful, as she tries to prove who the killer is.

Dark and gritty, this thriller has secrets, not just about the killer, but of those around Jazz, that she learns as she probes deeper into who the killer is and stop him before he kills and draws an “U” on his next “undeserving’ victim.

I gave The Poet 4 stars.
