Description:
This novel places Michael Connelly's much loved hero Harry Bosch square in the path of the most ruthless and inventive murderer he has ever encountered. The villain, known as the Poet, has been in hiding for a long time, but now he has surfaced in South Dakota and a former FBI agent is on the case too.

Reviews
There is a logic to genre fiction that has become successful enough to promote a series, in this case Michael Connolly’s Harry Bosch novels and his previously standalone novel, “The Poet”. When these precursor novels are yoked together, then villains have to become more villainous, especially when they are serial killers, and heroes have to become more angst-ridden and their home-lives more contorted. I have enjoyed some of Connolly’s earlier Harry Bosch novels but this one, coming later and also at the end of what is now a two-novel “Poet” series, has so ramped up the excessives that the conclusion verges on the silly: an over-extended chase, sentimentality at critical moments, a love-affair that you know will happen and also know must end, and melodramatic descriptions of the villain. That villain (the Poet/Robert Backus) has become almost all-powerful in his appearance-changing reappearance, as well as being possessed of seemingly limitless resources capable of defeating the FBI,
