He’s back . . . Private investigator Harry Bosch confronts a villain who’s long been in hiding – a fiend known as The Poet.

Former FBI agent Rachel Walling is working a dead-end stint in South Dakota when she gets the call she’s been dreading for four years. The Poet is back. And he has not forgotten Rachel. He has a special present for her.

Harry Bosch is adjusting to life in Las Vegas as a private investigator and a new father. He gets a call, too, from the widow of a friend who died recently. Previously in his FBI career, the friend worked on the famous case tracking the killer known as The Poet. This fact alone makes some of the elements of his death doubly suspicious.

And Harry Bosch is heading straight into the path of the most ruthless and inventive murderer he has ever encountered. . .

Reviews

Top-class Connelly
IRELAND ON SUNDAY
One of Connelly's best, with some speculation as to Harry's future plans in a lonely world. The good news is that the LAPD want him back on a short-term contract. Readers may want to join in the celebrations
LITERARY REVIEW
Connelly is a crime writing genius
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
His methods of killing and eluding detection are infernally ingenious, adding an intellectual charge to the visceral kick of the hunt
NEW YORK TIMES
While the themes of Connelly's LA crime novels are familiar (power, envy, corruption), his plotting is anything but
ESQUIRE
No one writes a better modern thriller than Michael Connelly
