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

Harry Bosch gets a call, too. The former LAPD detective hears from an old friend whose husband 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 and unknown world.

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’s 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 deep awareness of evil.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lee | 5/23/2011

    " Listening to this on audio. The reader is Len Cariou. He takes a while to get used to as every sentence sounds like it is the end of a paragraph; but then we continue . . .
    The story is good and I like the Harry Bosch character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Chris | 5/9/2011

    " My first, true Bosch novel. I liked it. Liked him much better as a lead character than supporting in the Mickey Haller series. The book had a good pace, but never seemed to get as "scary" as the quotes on the jacket suggested. The end was also anti-climactic. But a good, hard boiled yarn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kerri | 5/9/2011

    " If I'm not reading a "coming of age" book, I am reading a "crime thriller". Really enjoy Harry Bosch and his adventures. Always a great ride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dustin | 5/7/2011

    " Predictably entertaining. Connelly continues to disappoint for his cliche Hollywood endings, but I'm willing to tolerate them because I enjoy Harry Bosch. "
