About the Book
Former LAPD Detective Harry Bosch returns for his most heart-stopping case yet in this "New York Times" bestseller. Investigating the death of an old friend, who had ties to the hunt for the infamous serial killer, The Poet. What Harry finds leads him into the most terrifying situation he has ever encountered

Harry Bosch is a retired LAPD homicide detective who takes cold cases and solves them. Harry is asked by Terry McCaleb's (Blood Work, A Darkness More The Night) wife to look into Terry's death. Terry was a retired FBI agent and a heart transplant recipient operating a charter fishing boat with his partner Buddy.

Rachel Walling, the FBI agent who shot The Poet(Backus) and hopefully killed him in "The Poet" has been re-called from her exile because it looks like The Poet has returned. A road called Zyzzyx Road; an exit off a desert highway near Vegas and Bosch's newly found daughter is the burial place of many more of Backus' victims. As the FBI tries to unravel the clues, Harry is one step ahead of them as he realizes that McCaleb's death is tied to this infamous serial killer. Harry however just loves to step on the bureaucratic toes of the FBI.

Harry is encouraged to return to the LAPD. There is a three year amnesty so Harry would not have to take any of the police academy tests in order to return. What fan can not hope he makes the right decision to return.

I had not read The Poet before this book and went back and read it. The Poet should be read before this book. I also have not read Blood Work and feel I did not miss anything.

Harry Bosch is still retired from the LAPD when he gets a call from his old friend Terry McCaleb's wife after McCaleb passed away. McCaleb was the character in Connelly's Blood Work. His wife found out that McCaleb's pills had been swapped out to placebos and she suspects her husband may have been murdered. She asks Bosch to investigate. As Bosch goes through all of McCaleb's stuff he finds many old cases that McCaleb was working on, including a string of 6 murders out in Nevada.

As Bosch follows the lead, he's drives directly into an FBI investigation. They suspect that The Poet (from a book similarly named) has resurfaced and those six murders in Nevada were by him. Disgraced FBI Agent Rachel Walling works with Bosch to try and hunt down The Poet before he kills again.

You definitely have to read The Poet before you read this book or else the entire story will be ruined for you within the first 10 pages of this book. True to all the other Bosch books, this is a quick and entertaining read. I don't like Agent Walling much and hope she won't appear in another book because I find her very cold and detached. It'll be interesting to see how Bosch handles being back on the force and how his peers treat him after having been retired for 2.5 years.
