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...

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!
