Overview

Harry Bosch teams up with LAPD Detective Renée Ballard to face the unsolved murder of a runaway, and the fight to bring a killer to justice.

Detective Renée Ballard is working the night beat — known in LAPD slang as "the late show" — and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours 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 can't let him go through department records, but when he leaves, she looks into the case herself and feels a deep tug of empathy and anger. She has never been the kind of cop who leaves the job behind at the end of her shift — and she wants in.

The murder, unsolved, was of fifteen-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally killed, her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy, and to finally bring her killer to justice. Along the way, the two detectives forge a fragile trust, but this new partnership is put to the test when the case takes an unexpected and dangerous turn.

Dark Sacred Night for the first time brings together these two powerhouse detectives in a riveting story that unfolds with furious momentum. And it shows once more why "there's no doubt Connelly is a master of crime fiction" (Associated Press).

I really enjoy this pairing of detectives. They compliment each other perfectly. Hope he writes many more with these partners. I think Bosch finally found his true partner at last.

Two great characters from previous books, now working together. A flawed but dedicated and fierce team. Looking forward to the next book.

I'm a huge Michael Connelly fan, have read every single book he's written. I especially LOVE the Bosch series. This last one was like getting a Christmas present in October. I'm already looking forward to the next Harry Bosch book, or any book Mr. Connelly writes!

Been a loyal reader but this one is not a page turner; bland story, characters poorly developed and overly descriptive of mundane things,.

I really enjoyed reading about Detective Renee Ballard in The Late Show. Now she's partnering with retired Detective Harry Bosch in Dark Sacred Night. They're working together on a cold case about a murdered young girl, Daisy. Michael Connelly definitely can write crime fiction that is fast paced and keeps you riveted to your chair as you keep reading to see what happens next. Based on the ending, it sounds like there's a pretty good chance that there will be more collaboration with these two.

I have read every Harry Bosch book since a friend recommended the series a few years ago. I am never disappointed and can’t wait for the next one. Love the Renee Ballard character and looking forward to what she and Bosch will do together.

Detective Renee Ballard & retired Detective Harry Bosch cross paths during the late show at the Hollywood Division. They start to work on a more-than-a-decade old murder cold case. Against all odds, they solve it!

I loved this new pairing of Renee Ballard, banished to the graveyard shift because she spoke out about being harrassed by a superior who had more pull than she did, and Harry Bosch who's always operated without the full support of those he should have been able to count on. They team up to solve a cold case, a young runaway who had no one else to speak up for her or care about her death. The readers are fantastic and the story compelling and satisfying. I can't wait for October and the next installment of this pair, Renee still on the squad at LAPD and Harry on the outside, with a unique bond and mission.
