LAPD Detective Renée Ballard teams up with Harry Bosch in the new work of fiction from number-one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly. Renée Ballard is working the night beat again and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours only to find a stranger rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is retired detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin. Ballard kicks him out but then checks into the case herself, and it brings a deep tug of empathy and anger. Bosch is investigating the death of 15-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally murdered and her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now, Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy and finally bring her killer to justice.
What's going on with reading?
Why is this Christine Lakin reading as Bosch??? Her imitation of a male is a joke - we were led to believe that Titus Welliver would read the part of Bosch - what the F---?
I prefer Katherine Moennig reading the Late Show - I hope she comes back.
Dark Sacred Night
I’ve never missed a Bosch/Haller book. This one was “just ok”. Not boring but slow paced and without the intricate twists and turns of ‘Bloodwork’ - ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ - ‘Trunk Music’ etc. Renee was a much more pleasing character in this book than in her debut. And her narrator was smoother and less pressured in this book. I told my daughters to skip this one. But it’s much better than some of the “Bestsellers”. Hope Mr. Connelly keeps writing. P53
