Overview

Harry Bosch teams up with LAPD detective Renée Ballard to solve the murder of a young girl in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.

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!

Good book. Ballard still has a ridiculous lifestyle but she's more human, less manic, slightly less self-flagulating, even having a friend or two and the occassional self-indulgence.Bosch is fading into a depressing state of physical ailments, bad decisions and increasing recklessness which borders on sadisism inflicted on his daughter who he has in a constant state of emotional upheaval.Biggest letdown is one of the increasingly gory, sexually violent and superfluous plotlines is ripped straight from an Investigative Discovery program. Why? The books are becoming less psychological thriller and more like the latest installment of a Saw movie.

Filled with twists and turns as well as excitement. It's hard to put down.

Really enjoyed the partnership that developed between Ballard and Bosch. Glad to read the ending resulted in those two working cases together in the future.
