Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Night Fire offers more than a few incendiary surprises."―Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times

"Connelly is the Raymond Chandler of this generation, and readers will be studying his writing methods decades from now. He has created another novel that feels authentic on every level, and the underlying theme of mortality running through the narrative makes everything in the story more urgent."―Jeff Ayers, Associated Press

"There's something for everyone in this jam-packed plot: murder, arson, professional rivalry, salty cop talk and noisy domestic disputes that turn very ugly very quickly. Me, I go for the procedural details: who does what and how things get done from the minute the cops on shift at the Hollywood Division are sent to investigate a murder. Connelly is pretty much the current dean of procedural writers."―Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

"Breathless action...deep character studies...The Night Fire is Connelly's twenty first outing with Bosch, but the author has so much more to show us about him. Only three books in, Ballard has even more fodder for Connelly to uncover. In The Night Fire, Connelly again shows his mission: strong plots and sturdy characters."―Oline Cogdill, Sun Sentinel

"A virtuoso performance...The Night Fire glows with the instincts and intelligence Bosch and Ballard bring to their pursuit of the truth."―Collette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times

"One of the greatest crime writers of all time...Connelly continues to deliver winner after winner, year in and year out...reading one of his books is an experience unlike anything else the genre has to offer."―Ryan Steck, Crimereads

"Connelly is without peer when it comes to police procedurals, and once again proves that he's the modern master of the form."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Remarkable narrative legerdemain...Not only has Connelly created another fully formed series lead in Renée, who has her own fascinating backstory, but he has also forged a fascinating yin-and-yang relationship between the old school Harry and the unconventional loner Renèe...Master chef Connelly has once again combined familiar ingredients into a new and completely satisfying dish. Connelly is on a roll, with three consecutive number-one New York Times bestsellers. Don't bet against number four."―Bill Ott, Booklist (starred review)

"Connelly manages to top himself with his latest intensely gripping thriller...He tells a superb tale with an economy of words using a no-nonsense, fly-on-the-wall style of writing...Fans of this prolific author of crime dramas and either series will find this best-seller-list-bound novel hard to put down."―Library Journal (starred review)

PRAISE FOR DARK SACRED NIGHT:

"Spectacular...Dark Sacred Night is ingenious, frantically suspenseful, and very, very bleak."―Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post

"Readers know that when they pick up a Michael Connelly novel they will get a compelling and well-written dive into the world of crime and law enforcement...What makes Connelly so much better than most crime fiction writers is that his police detectives are human and real. The combination is quality."―Jeff Ayers, Associated Press

"Michael Connelly is superhuman...His hallmark has been his precise, faultless plotting...He's always been especially good when it comes to truly creepy killers, and his denouement here is thrilling."―Charles Finch, USA Today

"It was only last year that Connelly introduced Ballard, a fierce and fascinating new protagonist who instantly emerged as a reader favorite. Bosch, meanwhile, is a grizzled veteran by now; Dark Sacred Night marks the 21st novel to center on him. But fans always finish eager to come back for more."―David Canfield, Entertainment Weekly

"One of the best and most affecting Bosch novels since Mr. Connelly began the Bosch saga in 1992...It seems as is the vulnerable Harry Bosch has met the sympathetic Renée Ballard just in the nick of time."―Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Tour LA through the eyes of Michael Connelly's relentless detective, Harry Bosch...His fictional detective lives in a home high atop the Hollywood Hills and returns again and again to favorite haunts throughout the bestselling series, which continues with the publication of The Night Fire.

-- "Los Angeles Times"

"Ballard and Bosch slog through the usual dead ends and fruitless rounds of questioning to link two murders separated by many years to a single hired killer. The most mysterious question of all--why did John Jack Thompson steal that murder book in the first place?--is answered suddenly, casually, and surprisingly...Guaranteed to please anyone who thinks the cops sometimes get it wrong."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"The case is fascinating in its own right, but you know that Bosch's passion and his sense of duty is going to be extra-stoked now that he's working on behalf of his old rabbi. Every fall, Connelly finds a way to bring out some new magic in this classic series."

-- "Crime Reads" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
