Publisher Description

Even detectives have a dark side . . . 


At the end of a long, dark night detectives Renee Ballard and Harry Bosch cross paths for the first time. 


Detective Renee 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 retired 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 . . . 


'Outstanding, complex police procedural ... Bosch and Ballard, both outsiders with complicated pasts, form a perfect partnership in this high spot of Edgar-winner Connelly's long and distinguished career.' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)


'Connelly has created wonderful characters with Bosch and Haller, and Ballard will easily be as beloved. Connelly is a master of crime fiction.' --Associated Press


'Superb crime writing from a master.' --Stephen Loosley, The Australian


'Crime thriller writing of the highest order.' --The Guardian

Step into the world of the police.

Detailed and like other Connelly novels, clearly written methodically and accurately in relation to police and detective life. Compelling but not seeking to shock or be graphic. An insider’s take on murder investigations.

A memorable pairing

This is the first in the Bosch/Ballard series, showing the two loner detectives when they meet.
It’s very readable and although Bosch is as bleak as usual, the growing partnership between the 2 loners is compelling.
Bosch has been forced into early retirement and is now working as a reserve detective for the cash-strapped San Fernando Police Department where his office is a former drunk tank cell.
LAPD Detective Renée Ballard is half Bosch’s age, and works the graveyard shift. Although she is a gifted detective she is shunned by many colleagues because of a sexual harassment complaint she filed against a superior, Renée has a personal life that makes Harry’s look healthy: her family consists of her dog and a grandmother she sees occasionally; her home is a tent she pitches on the beach.
By the end of the novel the two have teamed up and I will be keen to read more about their work together. Although the mood is bleak, the writing is good and the characters memorable.
