No, I'm not really back till tomorrow, but... 

..it behooved me to break in and report that after all the hype, the careful doling out of review copies (and shutting down any possibility of obtaining advance copies months before the publication date) the spiffy DVD (which I finally viewed a few days ago, and it is very nicely put together), and the fervent hope that the book would finally, finally do what no other of his books had done before, the news is finally in:

And goddamnit, that DA VINCI CODE is one tough nut to crack.

So THE NARROWS debuts at #2 on the NYT List. Which, incidentally, is Michael Connelly's best debut in three years (A DARKNESS MORE THAN NIGHT reached the same pinnacle), but in the end, it wasn't quite enough.

Maybe next week...
