The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly

Jack McEvoy is a journalist for the L.A. Times, or he is for another two weeks anyway. He has been given the dreaded pink slip and decides to go out with a bang. He has an idea for an article that he hopes is Pulitzer-worthy. A sixteen-year-old boy, Alonzo Winslow has confessed to murdering a young woman and dumping her body. Jack has decided to write an article that gets into the mind of a young killer. The problem is that the boy's confession does not ring true to Jack. He ends up trying to find the real killer instead.
This book was so profanity-laden that it was impossible to read. Ugh, it was awful! Rated R.
