Summary

This box set includes three award-winning Harry Bosch thrillers, all voiced by standout Broadway veteran Len Cariou.

The Narrows

FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she’s dreaded for years, the one that tells her the Poet has surfaced. She has never forgotten the serial killer who wove lines of poetry in his hideous crimes, and apparently he has not forgotten her.

Former LAPD detective Harry Bosch gets a call, too, from the widow of an old friend. Her husband’s death seems natural, but his ties to the hunt for the Poet make Bosch dig deep. Arriving at a derelict spot in the California desert where the feds are unearthing bodies, Bosch joins forces with Rachel. Now the two are at odds with the FBI, and squarely in the path of the Poet, who will lead them on a wicked ride out of the heat, through the narrows of evil, and into a darkness all his own.

Echo Park

In 1995, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket in Hollywood. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn’t crack it, and the twenty-two year old woman never turned up, dead or alive. Now Bosch is in the Open-Unsolved Unit, where he still keeps the Gesto file on his desk, when he gets a call from the DA.

Michael Connelly’s suspenseful new novel pits the detective People magazine calls “one of the most complex crime fighters around” against one of the most sadistic killers he has ever confronted. It confirms that Michael Connelly “is the best writer of suspense fiction working today” (Richmond Times-Dispatch).

The Overlook

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

How smart and fortunate for listeners that Hachette Audio has turned to veteran Connelly reader Len Cariou for some added weight. Cariou catches all the strength and sadness behind Bosch's minimal dialogue and is also perfect as Harry's LAPD colleagues, female and male. He is especially good at bringing to frightening life the real villains. -Publishers Weekly on The Overlook
Connelly (Echo Park) delivers a masterly piece of cotemporary fiction that goes beyond the average police procedural. Connelly's novels are quite simply only getting better with age; the banter of the murder investigation is smart and the action taut. This sixth narraton of a Bosch mystery by Len Cariou is excellent and brings the characters to life. Highly recommended. -Libary Journal on The Overlook
“Cariou catches all the strength and sadness behind Bosch’s minimal dialogue and is also perfect as Harry’s LAPD colleagues, female and male. He is especially good at bringing to frightening life the real villains.” Publishers Weekly (audio review) of The Overlook
Len Cariou's pitch- perfect performance is understated yet expressive. His tone, pacing, and characterization capture the inner turmoil of the detective and the grittiness of the corrupt environment in which he operates. The abridgment never seems choppy or incomplete. And those new to the series will be drawn in without missing a beat. Connelly writes a compelling story with a strong sense of place, and Cariou delivers it with style. -AudioFile Magazine on Echo Park
“Listen up! This may be the best mystery you hear this summer—or this year, for that matter…Cariou deftly handles the Bosch scenes in the first person and Walling’s in the third. This constant switch might have been daunting to a lesser reader. Cariou milks it for all it’s worth.” Audiofile on The Narrows
“Michael Connelly crafts a deeply disturbing look into the dark souls of serial killers…Connelly’s writing offers no-nonsense plots, tightly compressed descriptions, and crisp dialogue, and Cariou keeps it all low-key, understated, and effective.” AudioFile on Echo Park
“Connelly delivers a masterly piece of cotemporary fiction that goes beyond the average police procedural. Connelly’s novels are quite simply only getting better with age; the banter of the murder investigation is smart and the action taut. This sixth narraton of a Bosch mystery by Len Cariou is excellent and brings the characters to life. Highly recommended.” Library Journal (audio review) of The Overlook
