The Narrows (AudioFile magazine Earphones Award Winner): 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.
Echo Park (2007 Audie Award Winner for Mystery): 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 22-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….
The Overlook: In his first case since he left the LAPD's Open Unsolved Unit for the prestigious Homicide Special squad, Harry Bosch is called out to investigate a murder that may have chilling consequences for national security. A doctor with access to a dangerous radioactive substance is found murdered in the trunk of his car. Retracing his steps, Harry learns that a large quantity of radioactive cesium was stolen shortly before the doctor's death. With the cesium in unknown hands, Harry fears the murder could be part of a terrorist plot to poison a major American city.

nice collection -- one missing in the order though
this is great to get 3 Harry Bosch books in one. I'm totally hooked on the characters. I am a big fan of crime dramas and I just love Michael Connelly's style and tales. Len Cariou is also my favorite narrator for these series, too. the other narrators are all good, but Len is my fav. :) You really can listen to one book and not have to go with the series as Connelly gives you the insights from previous stories if you missed them and need them for background with the current story. personally, I like going in order. I found the series when I first listened to one of the newest stories, Nine Dragons, and then went back and found the whole series and started from the beginning.
If you're listening to Harry Bosch series in order, there's actually one that comes after the Narrows and before Echo Park called The Closers. If you want to listen in order, then you'll need to get that one and listen to it after the first book in this set.
I really like the set, though. It's economical and great for someone like me who is relatively new the Harry Bosch series and now hooked.

Go for it
Harry Bosch is a very realistic character, a man who doesn't mind to break the rules, if necessary. I liked first and third book in the box set. I struggled w/ the narration of Rachel there. Her voice was somewhat weak, which (at least for me) didn't correspond with her character.
Anyway - 1 credit for 3 excellent books, it's the best value I've got on audible.

I love Harry!
I enjoy Michael Connolly's Harry Bosch books so much. I started a long time ago with a holiday read and became addicted. The Box Set gives you 3 very good listens and all are as enjoyable as the next. Be careful how you download them though. My Ipod (my downloading) got them mixed up and following from book to book was difficult for me and when you can't wait to get to the next chapter that's frustrating! Also, you should try to listen to them in order as the newer ones refer to the older but it won't spoil your listen if you do, just makes it more 'comfortable' when he refers to goings on in past books.
