The Burning Room Synopsis

In the LAPD's Open Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet ten years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other evidence is virtually non-existent. Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Starting with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information which soon reveals that this shooting may have been anything but random.

The Good Book Guide Review

In the LAPD’s Unsolved Crime Unit, something strange and unprecedented has happened. A murder victim has died a decade after a crime; Orlando Merced dies after complications from being shot years before. It’s up to Detective Harry Bosch to investigate the case in which, although the corpse is recent, all other evidence simply no longer exists. So, Harry has his hands full. Of the select group of top crime novelists whose speciality is assured storytelling, the ever-reliable Michael Connelly is perhaps the most interested in the conflicted character of his protagonists.

The Burning Room Press Reviews

'As ever in Michael Connelly's work, Los Angeles - a city in which 'no matter how close it something looked, it was still far away' - is a character in its own right. And the jazz soundtrack - 'plaintive and sad but ... with an undeniable underlying hope' - makes The Burning Room a superb swansong.' EVENING STANDARD

 

'It's a good story, but crucially The Burning Room shows Bosch on top form, his age no impediment to his stubbornness nor his professional insights' -- Marcel Berlins THE TIMES

 

'what Connelly delivers here - as ever - is a slice of classy, clever, page-turning stuff, as Bosch and his excellent new sidekick trace the shadows of years-old crimes whose tendrils stretch through the echelons of LA society and across the sprawl of its geography. The detective is described by his boss - 'the one that knows the most in the troop. Has all the experience.
Connelly, too, is a pair of eminently safe hands, and The Burning Room is a pleasure to read' -- Alison Flood THE OBSERVER

 

'Connelly weaves his story as deftly as always, never slackening the tension' DAILY EXPRESS

 

'Connelly has lost none of his fire, nor his desire to take his readers by the throat and never let them go' DAILY MAIL
