This is my second time reading The Poet and it was like reading it anew since it has been so many years. I think it is a wonderful mystery novel and it is probably my favorite I've read thus far. Connelly has a way with words and plot turns. I absolutely love the twists, especially at the end. Reading this makes me want to jump right back into The Narrows. Connelly is definitely a skilled mystery writer and I look forward to exploring books of his that I haven't read before.
