FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she's dreaded for years, the one that tells her the Poet has surfaced. She has never forgotten the serial killer who wove lines of poetry in his hideous crimes--and apparently he has not forgotten her.

Former LAPD detective Harry Bosch gets a call, too--from the widow of an old friend. Her husband's death seems natural,

I read Michael Connelly's The Poet while my husband flew to England reading The Narrows. Many years pass between the two novels, and many intertwined characters enjoy lives of their own in other books. But Blood Work and The Poet make a good introduction to The Narrows and the novel lived up to all the high expectations my husband's comments inspired in me. Michael Connelly again writes his book in two voices, the narrator watching over people's shoulders, and the first-person narration, this time of retired policeman Harry Bosch. Relationships and backgrounds are cleverly sketched with minimal information and ample mood and conviction, so the reader-this reader anyway-doesn't feel any loss at missing the intervening books; just an eagerness to go back and read them some day. FBI agent Rachel Walling has been hidden in the middle of nowhere to keep her out of trouble. LAPD detective Harry Bosch has retired and is trying to find his way between unexpected family life and a desire to investigate mysteries without the aid of a badge. Suddenly Rachel's name is attached to a new investigation, and the wife of retired FBI agent Terry McCaleb is convinced her husband was murdered. The two mysteries begin to converge with nicely timed discoveries that keep readers one step ahead of the tale while still trailing one step behind the investigation. There are mysteries behind mysteries, secrets behind lies, and a stunning concluding chase where all narrowing options close down to one. Like all of Connelly's novels, or at least all I've read, The Narrows is finely paced, convincingly plotted, and masterfully designed; not just a mystery; not just an investigation of human nature; not just good vs evil; but something convincingly more than the sum of its parts-a story that stays with the reader long after the telling.

Great book... if you love Bosch you won't be dissapointed. I definitely reccomend that you read Blood Work and The Poet before reading this book. There were quite a few references to the past. Cant help being a tiny bit skeptical as retired cop Bosch was a step ahead of fbi the entire book. Don't get me wrong... Bosch is the best!

I really love the Harry Bosch series. I have not read the series from beginning to end and this can present a problem when trying to understand the character development. However, that being said, the stories are great, the characters are extremely interesting and believable and I have yet to be dissatisfied with any of Michael Connelly's novels. Read them - enjoy them!

Still reading but so far so good. The same style of all Michael Connelly books; easy reading and interesting enough to keep you turning pages.
