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.

"Michael Connelly's best crime novel since City of Bones...." (The New York Times)
"A dynamite plot, fully flowered characters, and a meticulous attention to the details of investigative procedure....Connelly is a master and this novel is yet another of his masterpieces." (Publishers Weekly)
Really got to like Hieronymous Bosch. To me each book I read/listen to seems to get better. Excellent read
Bringing together plots from at least two of Michael Connelly's earlier novels, The Narrows, shows a complexity of plotting that is deeply impressive: each clue, each reaction to a clue, each move by the killer to taunt the police, and for the police to pursue the elusive killer, is one more tightening of the tension and suspense of the story. In pursing the Poet each major character puts their fate and their lives in jeopardy. This book is a worthy successor to the previous novel The Poet, and a book not to be missed. The audiobook is skilfully read: well paced and strong.
