When the widow of a friend (Terry McCaleb) calls Bosch to investigate her late husband's mysterious death, he is there.

Robert Backus: former FBI Behavioral Science, former mentor, former Poet. Is he back? All signs point in that direction, and Agent Rachel Walling is called out of exile in the badlands of North Dakota...but she is not given any power to actually investigate what appears to be his work.

Meanwhile, during the investigation of the death of McCaleb, Harry comes across cryptic noted and pictures of McCaleb's family without their knowledge. Was McCaleb being targeted? By who? Why? One of the pictures is taken in Nevada of a road sign, ZZyzx. Bosch decides to go and see what it leads to.
Walling and Bosch, both pretty much outsiders, he is former LAPD, retired, and she is not in good standing, They are paired because Agent Walling is already there and he has information. Are the two cases a combination of the work of one madman, or was this all a coincidence. Bosch doesn't believe in coincidences. There are hints as to whom is doing the killing, but why, and how were they lured to their excruciating deaths.
Then, Harry's ex wife is keeping a secret. He knows she is and this is one of those mysteries he must solve. However, when he discovers what this life changing secret is, he could never have imagined what it turned out to be.
The book was interesting how the crimes were solved, they were led to certain places that apparently they were led to intentionally. They were being played.

Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD and is trying to drum up business for his new career as a private investigator. He lands a case, probably the last one he wants, to investigate the death of good friend Terry McCaleb who was an FBI agent before his own retirement.
In the course of his investigation Harry stumbles on a huge excavation taking place off Zzyzx Road, a nowhere junction along I-15 between LA and Las Vegas. (I’ve seen it several times and it always provoked a laugh.) Turns out the excavators are FBI folks and they are finding a number of bodies whose deaths point to a nemesis called The Poet.
One of the FBI agents at the “big dig” is Rachel Walling, an old friend of Bosch who’s been brought down from her office in South Dakota to help. She’s been warned about taking too aggressive a role in this investigation but she does have a good reason to participate fully; The Poet is a psycho named Backus who was Rachel’s FBI mentor many years before.
Bosch is not welcomed by the FBI; they don’t want any help from a retired LA police officer, thank-you-very-much. But Bosch doesn’t care about that because he has his own case to worry about. And since he’s in the Las Vegas vicinity, it’s a great opportunity to get over to “Sin City” and see his daughter, Maddie, who lives there with her mother, Eleanor.
Backus is also the master of many disguises and is watching everyone closely. As you might suspect, “outsiders” Bosch and Walling get together (in several ways) to hunt and find Backus in a tension-filled ending.

The Harry Bosch series is the best crime series I've ever read and, for my money, this is one of the very best in the series (it's close between this one, Echo Park, and The Concrete Blonde). Read Connelly's earlier novel, The Poet, before reading this. Although Bosch isn't in The Poet, there are important connections between that book and this one, and you'll enjoy this all the more with that background. And The Poet is a great book in its own right. If you've enjoyed Michael Connelly before you'll like this one, too. If you've never read him, get started and welcome to the party.

This is a very good writer and a very smart one. I have read many of his books, all these people that move around and in LA. Bosch, Mike Haller, the journalist , Kiz, Rachel Walling , etc , they all form a group of interesting people, different characters, all working crimes, intricate intrigues, quite atmospheric, .....simply good entertaining writing.

Connelly and Harry Bosch are always a good read and The Narrows is certainly no exception. Having been a cop for 33 years in an LA County city so much of what Connelly writes is so right on target regarding police work, victims and the criminal justice system. Connelly gets it about the FBI's and their bureaucratic, highminded ways that get in the way of good street level investigative police work. While The Narrows is a little weak in capturing my complete attention, I could put this one down, it is a wonderful read.

The crossover books that cover multiple main characters frequently tend to have to much ground to cover on all sides to satisfy the readers of each series. This generally means that the main story itself must be simpler, as was the case with this one whee the villain was revealed very early on. Also, the attempted twist at the end was not really very well conceived, as it essentially meant that it truly was a major coincidence that Bosch became heavily involved in the case at all. While potentially heavily ironic for those familiar with that character, it was also quite unbelievable. However, even with those shortcomings, this was still a very good read. The pacing was generally good and the use of multiple settings to develop the story also worked well.
