Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of November 2018: Twenty books in, finding new ways to keep a long-running series fresh must be tough. Michael Connelly solves this perfectly in Dark Sacred Night by teaming Harry Bosch with Detective Renée Ballard from last year’s series debut, The Late Show. The new partners meet cute, professionally speaking, when Ballard, still working the night beat (aka “the late show”), catches Bosch rifling through file cabinets at Hollywood Station. The cold case that Bosch is digging into involves a young runaway, and the case triggers Ballard’s empathy as well as her uncanny investigative instincts. Connelly does a masterful job of threading the needle with Ballard and Bosch’s “hobby case” as well as Ballard’s day to day caseload, allowing the fledging partnership and the cold case to build slowly while keeping the action constant. Nobody greases a plot with procedural details better than Connelly, but here, he also uses the mundane personal details of a cop’s life to good effect. When the cold case plot finally comes to a head, Ballard and Bosch, opposites in almost every regard, work together to “take a killer off the board.” Los Angeles has a new speaker for the dead and that is good news indeed for Connelly fans. —Vannessa Cronin
