"The Narrows" brings back Robert Backus who was also the Poet. Harry Bosch is retired from LAPD, but was friends with Terry McCalub who was retired FBI. McCalub's wife, Graciela, wants Bosch to investigate the death of her husband. His death was ruled a normal death because he had a bad ticker and had a heart transplant. His wife does not believe this is the case, and that there was foul play. This story takes Harry to Las Vegas and to the desert where the Poet has come out of hiding and is trying to lure FBI agent and protege, Rachel Walling. There are many bodies buried in the desert. From Harry's investigation that started in Las Angeles, it connects him to the FBI and in turn to Walling. All the clues lead to the Poet killing McCalub because he was on to the killings that took place in Las Vegas. When an article is written in a Vegas paper with McCalub's mentioned in it, Bosch believes this is the connection that leads Backus to Terry~and then the murder out on the open sea in McCalub's boat. This book is action packed and leaves you guessing just like any other Michael Connelly book. Be prepared to have your mind blown away by the ending...
