Review Writing 101 

Oline Cogdill, the mystery columnist for the Florida Sun-Sentinel, has long been one of my favorite reviewers in the business. There's no better proof of her skills than in her review earlier today of THE NARROWS, which not only explains what makes Connelly's latest book work and why Harry Bosch is such an appealing character, but doesn't spoil a single plot point. Talk about walking a tightrope, but Cogdill does it with seeming ease.

A lot of people--myself included--have wondered how to review THE NARROWS without revealing some of the major shocks and surprises that dot the first few pages of the book. We need not wonder any longer.
