Dark Sacred Night The Brand New Ballard and Bosch Thriller

by Michael Connelly

Crime / Mystery

Dark Sacred Night The Brand New Ballard and Bosch Thriller Synopsis

Daisy Clayton's killer was never caught. In over ten years, there has been no breakthrough in her murder case. Detective Renee Ballard has faced everything the LAPD's notorious dusk-till-dawn graveyard shift has thrown at her. But, until tonight, she'd never met Harry Bosch - an ex-homicide detective consumed by this case.

Soon, she too will become obsessed by the murder of Daisy Clayton. Because Ballard and Bosch both know: every murder tells a story. And Daisy's case file reads like the first chapter in an untold tragedy that is still being written - one that could end with Ballard herself, if she cannot bring the truth to light...

Dark Sacred Night The Brand New Ballard and Bosch Thriller Press Reviews

Connelly's most famous creation, retired LAPD detective Harry Bosch,, teams up with detective Renee Ballard to solve the 2009 murder of a 15-year-old runaway in a gripping, fast-paced story. - MAIL ON SUNDAY

Brilliant written in Connelly's inimitable descriptive style and compulsively readable, we keep company with his characters in the traffic jams of LA and the endless cheap diners where the cops catch their breakfast after an all-nighter. The intertwining of character is as fascinating as the cases they confront, and we are along breathlessly for the whole ride. We can only hope that the team of Ballard and Bosch will run for some years to come. -- Marina Vaizey - THE ARTS DESK

A new masterpiece. It's suspenseful and surprisingly moving. After 31 bestsellers he just keeps getting better. This one will fuel ones to come, as it unites veteran LA detective Harry Bosch and his newest creation, fesity detective Renee Ballard...What a team! What a hit! -- Alex Gordon - PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH

Ballard and Bosch could not be more different, and yet they are hewn from the same rock -- Mark Sanderson - EVENING STANDARD

Detective Renee Ballard, who made her first appearance in last year's The Late Show, returns here in the company of Connelly's long-standing serial character Harry Bosch, now retired from the LAPD and working on cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department...Connelly keeps all the plates - including the porn industry, corrupt cops and a religious zealot - spinning beautifully as the pair battle to find the truth -- Laura Wilson - THE GUARDIAN

This is a must-read detective novel, for this or any year. -- Michael Carlson - IRRESISTIBLE TARGETS

Taut in style and sombre in tone, Dark Sacred Night finds the formerly morally incorruptible Bosch journeying into darkness even as he rages against the dying of the light -- Declan Burke - IRISH TIMES
