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…
Michael Connelly just goes from strength to strength and I read this at the perfect time, having just binge watched Bosch I was ready to go back to the books..
This one finds Bosch teaming up with the brilliant Ballard, both characters are incredible in their own way and together create a perfect storm of a read that is almost impossible to put down.
This is dark crime noir at its absolute best, quality storytelling of the highest order. Michael Connelly brings such an atmosphere to his novels, you live every one and I do believe Bosch is one of the best fictional detectives created.
Dark Sacred Night is a deliciously addictive joy to read, it’s mystery element is entirely intriguing and it’s character drama deeply authentic.
Huge love for this one. Highly Recommended.
