Publisher's Summary

FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she's dreaded for years: the one that tells her the Poet has returned. Years ago she worked on the famous case, tracking down the serial killer who wove lines of poetry into his hideous crimes. Rachel has never forgotten Robert Backus, the killer who called himself the Poet, and apparently he has not forgotten her either.

Harry Bosch gets a call, too. The former LAPD detective hears from the wife of an old friend who has recently died. The death appeared natural, but this man's ties to the hunt for the Poet make Harry dig deep, and lead him into a terrifying, bewildering situation.

So begins the most compelling, frightening, and masterful novel Michael Connelly has ever written. The Narrows places Harry Bosch in league with Rachel Walling, at odds with the FBI and squarely in the path of the most ruthless and ingenious murderer in Los Angeles' history. What follows is a taut and tantalizing mystery that has Harry Bosch racing from the hostile vistas of the Nevada desert to the glittering Las Vegas strip to the dark corners of Los Angeles.

Through it all, Bosch works at his newfound life as father to a young daughter, balancing the deepest love he has ever felt with his own sense of mission and his profound awareness of evil.

Don't miss Detective Harry Bosch on the case in these Michael Connelly crime fiction novels.

    "He's BACK"

    I look forward to Connelly novels, have read them all by now, but not all are a "10." This one is! While it helps to have read The Poet beforehand, it is not necessary. A truly enjoyable Bosch novel. Can't wait for the next one.

    "Simply the best"

    I have enjoyed all of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch books, but this one stands above them all. The narrator is superb. Thank goodness it wasn't that irritating Scott Brick who reads for so many of these detective novels. The other good news is that the novel leaves open a possibility for Bosch to pursue another encounter with the FBI agent Rachel Walling and, perhaps, the Poet.

    "Bad book, poorly read"

    Okay, I listened to the whole book, but I became progressively more irritated the longer I listened. The story was weak and the reading was worse. The memory of the narrator's falsetto when speaking for the female characters still rankles, as do the annoying red herrings and lengthy digressions on lifestyle trivia.

    "Save Your Money"

    I found my mind wandering most of the time and I wasn't anxious to get back to it to finish the book.....I was happy when it was over. I wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends. The ending was anti-climatic and predictable and the book was boring.

    "Great Read"

    This is the first book I've read from this author. I wish I had previously read the others in the series; although, I certainly enjoyed the book. It kept me reading. The plot was interesting and suspenseful. Sometimes I could guess the next plot direction and sometimes not. I just wanted to keep reading.

    I will choose this author again!
