Weaving lines of poetry into his gruesome crimes, the serial killer known to millions as the Poet returns. Rachel Walling, the FBI agent who years earlier had tried to track him down, has not forgotten him, and neither has former LAPD detective Harry Bosch who receives a call from an old friend whose husband had recently died. Even though his death appeared natural, the man's ties to the hunt for the Poet make Harry look twice, inevitably placing him in the path of the most ruthless and ingenious murderer in Los Angeles' history.… (més)

A good story with the usual characters from the LAPD and FBI among others. Anything I say would spoil some of the suspense and surprise so I won't make any comment on the plot. Action takes place in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Catalina Island. In The Narrows Harry Bosch has retired from the Los Angeles Police Department and is working as a private investigator, but considering an offer to return to the Department. ( )

Slightly problematic structure in this one. Harry Bosch is in the dark, unlike the reader, for the first third. Once past that, it rolls along nicely. ( )

Pretty by-the-numbers Bosch offering. No surprises or twists here. The parts of the book that were told from the perspective of characters other than Bosch were utterly superfluous. Reasonably entertaining but nowhere near as good as the likes of Trunk Music or Angels Flight. I will continue to read the series in order. Next up, the Closers. ( )

The Narrows is an adventure mystery that from the very beginning is well written. The characters are all believable. The storyline is believable. It takes place in Las Vegas and So Cal. Portions of the book are eerie. The serial killer's upbringing was sad and in no way justifies his pathetic existence. The book received five stars for all of the reasons listed above as well as being a very good story. It is highly recommended to a reader who appreciates a suspenseful well researched novel. ( )

"The Narrows" follows up on the 1996 Connelly novel, "The Poet" through the point of view of Harry Bosch, who has been asked by Graciela McCaleb to investigate the suspicious death of her husband, former FBI agent, Terry McCaleb; Rachel Walling, FBI agent, exiled to the Dakotas due to her relationship with reporter Mack McEvoy during the investigation of serial slayer, Robert Backus, who was labeled as "The Poet" for the lines from Poe he has left; and Backus himself, former FBI supervisor and Walling's mentor, and now resurrected by Connelly and embarked on another murder spree.
Once into the crux of the investigation of Terry McCaleb's death, Connelly takes Bosch into first person point of view to enable us to get into the weeds of the complexities that Backus has used to challenge his pursuers. Connelly's back and forth use of the first person increases the tension and enjoyment for the reader making this one of his best novels. Now that Bosch has decided to return to LAPD and to partner with Kiz Rider, we can look forward to another great read.

All they did was trade one monster for another. Instead of a dragon they now have a snake. A giant snake that sleeps in the narrows and bides its time until the moment is right and it can open its jaws and swallow someone down.
-John Kinsey, father of a boy lost in the narrows. Los Angeles Times, July 21,1956
