If you've never read Connelly or if you've read Connelly, but not one of his Bosch books, this is a great one to start with. It sets the stage for many of his later books. When I read the back of one of Connelly's Bosch books, I never thought I would be interested, but a friend lent me a copy so I gave it a try. NOW I AM HOOKED! I think I've now read every book Connelly has ever written.

A good book on its own, but a real treat for anyone who has followed the Connelly characters of Harry Bosch, Rachel Walling, and Terry McCaleb as they all come together in this novel. Suspenseful and fast paced.

I would recommend reading both The Poet and Blood Work before reading this book.

(One fun tidbit: Connelly wrote the book Blood Work which was subsequently made into a Clint Eastwood movie. Then in this book, one of Connelly's fictional characters refers back to the movie complaining about how he was portrayed and discussing the royalty he received for the use of his likeness. Loony. )

4 stars out of 5

In this one, he pulls in Terry McCaleb (Blood Work) and Rachel (the FBI agent who shot the Poet) and The Poet (Backus-agent turned serial killer) and of course, Mr. Harry Bosch. I love everything by Connelly. This is another great one. (10th of the Bosch series)

An outstanding book. Typical Connelly book. Many twists and turns. Connelly has a way of weaving many characters from other books into his current books.

One of Connelly's better stories. A good sequel to the very good "The Poet." Good, strong well developed characters and plot. Proves Connelly can really write a good tale when he wants to.

THE NARROWS is not the best book to read if this is the readers first experience with Michael Connelly. This author, like many others, has an ongoing story about the main and some secondary characters. Please look at the booklist below.

I would recommend reading the books with the double asterisk in order: THE POET > BLOOD WORK > A DARKNESS MORE THAN NIGHT > THE NARROWS. There are so many references to the previous books; most new readers will be aggravated that they do not grasp their significance in the current book.

The Poet is back! Hes the diabolical serial murderer that started his career in the FBI; thus, he knows all the tricks and knows how the FBI thinks. Now, Terry McCaleb, an ex-FBI profiler and serial killer expert, has died.

His wife wants Harry Bosch to investigate because the blood work from the autopsy shows that McCaleb did NOT have any of the critical medicines in his blood stream at the time of his death. These medicines helped his transplanted heart to function without them, he died.

McCalebs business partner and his wife assure Harry that Terry was religious about taking his meds. Terry kept his old files (unsolved cases) and regularly worked them in his spare time. As Harry works his way through those cases, he realizes that Terry was on the Poets trail.

This is a taut drama with lots of dead-ends and twists. The pacing is excellent; I had to finish it because I couldnt put it down. 5 STARS

I absolutely loved this book! It is a great police thriller--however, it is somewhat violent. There are also some mild adult scenes and a great deal of bad language, so be warned. The author has a wonderful, "deep" style, is very observant of human nature, and goes beyond a simple exciting plot. To be honest, I hesitate to list this, because I'm sure I'll read it again at some point!

This 10th Harry Bosch novel links the retired LA cop with
characters from previous non-Bosch novels. A serial killer
and ex-FBI agent named Robert Backus, the title character
from Michael Connelly's first novel, THE POET, was commonly
thought to be dead. But now the Poet has resurfaced and
has started killing again. At risk is FBI agent Rachel
Walling, a former protégé of Backus who subsequently
investigated his first killing spree. As she begins a
new hunt for the Poet, her path crosses that of
Harry Bosch, who believes that the natural-seeming death
of a friend, Terry McCaleb (a character from Connelly's
BLOOD WORK and A DARKNESS MORE THAN NIGHT), may actually
have been one of the Poet's murders.

I love Michael Connelly. I started out reading City of Bones and was hooked. I have now requested all of his audio cd's for my commute to work. In this book there were a few times I was thinking that the detectiveor FBI agent made a dumb mistake for the purpose of creating more drama....ie that is not what a smart cop like Harry Bosch would do.... but I forgave Mr Connelly because the rest of the book was so good. I love the charachter development of the heroes and can't wait to listen to my next one. Also was amazed at how many books Connelly has written.

The Narrows Michael Connelly This was a good follow up Novel to âThe Poetâ. The poet is back after eight years and he is killing again. Harry Bosch's friend dies a mysterious death and his wife has asked him to check into it. Harry must unravel the clues and with the help of Rachel Walling, the FBI agent, they must stop The Poet from striking again. This was a good book, it kept my interest throughout, it was a non-stop energy ride with plenty of twists and turns. The ending however was not worthy of this book or the book âThe Poetâ. If the ending would have been better this book would have been a 5/5. Instead, it ended as somewhat of a dud. Grade 3/5

Mr.Connelly is at the height of his powers in this novel. Harry Bosch is one of those rare charcters who gets more interesting the longer Mr.Connelly writes about him. This novel ties together many plot points from previous novels as Harry matches wits with the poet, the serial killer from the novel "The Poet" The tension in this novels builds to a explosive climax that will keep you on the edge of your seat. If your interested in the best writing in crime fiction you can't do any better than Michael Connelly.

With a writer of Connellys popularity, particularly one that works with a regular cast of characters, mixed reviews are to be expected. Each successive book opens the possibility of a narrative letdown. Part of Connellys decision to collate a few of his most enduring characters into The Narrows was to address concerns many fans had with the ending of The Poet. Though it strikes a few critics as a risky move that doesnt bear repeating, the general consensus is that Connelly pulls the sequel off. Some reviewers disagree about whether the back-story is ample enough for the uninitiated. But whether The Narrows is his best or his worst work, its has elements of both, and plenty of the subtle characterization and gripping storyline that fans have come to expect from Connelly.

THE NARROWS by Michael Connelly: In this sequel to The Poet (1996) retired LAPD Detective Harry Bosch begins to suspect that the notorious serial killer The Poet, presumed dead, may be the culprit in the death of ex-FBI profiler Terry McCalab. As he digs deeper, Bosch meets and eventually joins forces with FBI agent Rachel Walling, who went up against The Poet the first time around. The interactions between Bosch, Walling and The Poet make this a delightfully twisty addition to the Bosch legacy.

Harry Bosch is working as a private investigator when he is contacted concerning the death of a friend. Was it natural causes or was it murder? Harry's investigation leads him to the California desert where he finds the FBI uncovering several bodies. He also finds FBI Agent Rachel Walling. After years of silence, Rachel has received a note from the Poet, a serial killer who disappeared without a trace several years ago and Rachel's former boss. Harry and Rachel join forces when they realize they may be searching for the same person.

This book brings together Harry Bosch and the Poet. The first part of the story moved fast with Harry's investigation intersecting with Rachels. The second half was a little slower for me. The search takes Harry to Las Vegas where he visits his daughter and ex-wife. I could have done without that part of the book. The ending of the book was very exciting. I recommend you read "The Poet" before reading this book. Actually, I recommend the whole Harry Bosch series. My rating: 4 Stars.

From Publishers Weekly
Those who are familiar with the audio adaptations of Connelly's books will be delighted to see that Cariou lends his talents to Connelly's latest mystery, which is a sequel to The Poet (1996). At the center of this engrossing thriller is world-weary, retired L.A. homicide detective Harry Bosch. While investigating the death of ex-FBI profiler Terry McCalab, Bosch begins to suspect that the notorious serial killer The Poet, presumed dead, may be the culprit. As he digs deeper, Bosch meets and eventually joins forces with FBI agent Rachel Walling, who went up against The Poet the first time around. The novel's point of view cuts from Bosch's first-person commentary to the third-person perspectives of Walling and The Poet. Cariou handles these changes with professional ease. He gives Bosch a rough voice, raspy with experience, and provides Walling with a younger, but no less tough, intonation. Cariou's vocal dexterity becomes truly apparent, however, when he reads Connelly's descriptive passages. Whether he is illuminating a grisly crime scene, a rainstorm pummeling a Los Angeles freeway or a soft moment between Bosch and his young daughter, Cariou perfectly captures the subtleties of Connelly's tightly written prose.
