The Narrows (Harry Bosch) (Audio Cassette) (Unabridged)
The Narrows - Harry Bosch - Audio Cassette - Unabridged Author:Michael Connelly, Len Cariou (Narrator) FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she's dreaded for years: the one that tells her the Poet has returned. Years ago she worked on the famous case, tracking down the serial killer who wove lines of poetry into his hideous crimes. Rachel has never forgotten Robert Backus, the killer who called himself the Poet -- ... more »and apparently he has not forgotten her either.
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 Edgar Award winner 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.

Another great entry in the Harry Bosch mystery series. Several times in this book, Clint Eastwood and "the movie" were mentioned. I googled it and found that a previous Michael COnnelly book, BLOOD WORK, was the basis for a 2002 movie starring Eastwood as Terry McCaleb. In THE NARROWS, Bosch is investigating McCaleb's death. Very interesting and complex plot, but all the loose ends were tied up satisfactorily by the end.
