Publisher Description

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).

Dark Sacred Night

Thank you!! Thank you finally!!!
Michael Connelly, you’re a genius, and a champion for women and the glorious
#MeToo movement. I love how Connelly exposes the toxic masculinity in the LAPD ranks. In the next book, could we include a trans-gender detective, who switches back and forth, between a boy and a girl, depending if he/she’s undercover, and in “disguise.” HeHe, maybe the WASP’s aren’t ready!
Keep up the cause Michael!!! You’re a post-modernist hero to all of us, fighting toxic white male domination and oppression!!!

better sign off Bosch before it gets worse

I like the Kay Ballard character but preferred the narrator in The Late Show. I did not like the female narrator in this audiobook speaking for Bosch. Titus Welliver should have voiced Bosch character all the way through. Disappointing for me following Bosch over the years. It would be better to just not bring him into future novels at all.

Just okay

It was ok, not really a page-turning thriller. The earlier Bosch novels were much better. Ballard is a young female version of a Harry.
Some of her dialogue sounds like she‘s a teenager. I think Connelly could have written better for her. Hope the next book is better.
