Harry Bosch - The Brand New Bosch and Ballard Thriller

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



At the end of a long, dark night Detectives Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch cross paths for the very first time.

* * * * *

Detective Renée Ballard works the graveyard shift and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours to find a stranger rifling through old files.
The intruder is none other than legendary LAPD detective Harry Bosch, hunting for leads in an unsolved case that has got under his skin.

Ballard escorts him out but - curious to know what he was searching for - soon becomes obsessed by the murder of Daisy Clayton. Was she the first victim of a serial killer who still stalks the streets?

For Bosch, the case is more than personal: it may be all he has left.

But in a city where crime never sleeps, even detectives have a dark side...

From Publishers Weekly

27 August 2018 – LAPD Det. Ren e Ballard, first seen in 2017's The Late Show, makes a welcome return in this outstanding, complex police procedural. Relegated to the night shift at the Hollywood Station following a sexual harassment suit against her former lieutenant, Ballard works her cases with a quiet focus and intensity. Late one night, Ballard surprises a man looking through some old case files. It turns out to be retired LAPD detective Harry Bosch, now working cold cases for the San Fernando PD. After Bosch leaves, Ballard takes a look at the file, detailing the unsolved 2009 murder of Daisy Clayton, a 15-year-old runaway. The slain girl was the daughter of a recovering addict, who has been taken in by Bosch. Ballard is hooked, and begins working the case with Bosch. Meanwhile, Bosch's investigation into another cold case, the execution-style killing of a 52-year-old gang leader, has put the detective squarely in the sights of Varrio San Fer 13, one of the valley's most violent gangs. Bosch and Ballard, both outsiders with complicated pasts, form a perfect partnership in this high spot of Edgar-winner Connelly's long and distinguished career.

Customer Reviews


Very disappointing. Too much detail, not enough action. Just like the first Ballard book.

Bosch and Ballard

Wasn't sure how the teaming of these two slight outcasts would work ... But needn't have worried as they compliment each other brilliantly.
Great story build up, with other cases along the way for them both, which adds to the realism of cops dealing with the day job.
Interesting addition of "black ops" SIS cops and how that triggered a response in Bosch. Wonder if he'll end up joking them in the future.
Bring on the next book with these two characters!
