Publisher's Summary

At the end of a long, dark night Detectives Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch cross paths for the very first time.

Detective Renée Ballard is working the graveyard shift again and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours only to find that an older man has snuck in and is rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is none other than legendary LAPD detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin.

Ballard kicks him out, but eventually Bosch persuades her to help, and she relents. Bosch is investigating the death of 15-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway who was brutally murdered. He crossed paths with her devastated mother while working a previous case, and Daisy's story has seized hold of him.

Harry Bosch never lets you down

As usual Michael Connelly captures the essence of working the force and the night shift, its great to see Old Harry doing his best work and the story is entertaining and capturing your imagination. You never get board with this author as his research is fantactic and accurate. I cant wait to hear what will become of the invincible Harry Bosch.

Loved it

Thoroughly enjoyed this book.i had returned the first Ballard book but think I will re buy it.

Great narration by both narrators although it did take a while to get use to the second Bosch voice.

Great storyline and I am looking forward to the next edition

Easy listening great Bosch story

Christine and Titus do a great job with the story there very easy to listen to and I’m a true believer having the star of the Bosch tv series reading the Bosch stories I will buy more if Titus Welliver is telling the story
Thanks

Far-Left racist and sexist political agenda

Connelly went way overboard on injecting his far-left racist and sexist political agenda into this novel. This one is NOT what I would call quality literature. Don't bother.

Michael Connelly did not disappoint

I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the first Renee Ballard book (the late show).
The reader, especially for Bosch was fantastic, I can fit the voice with the imagine of the man that I conjured.
Story was good, with several crimes to be solved at the same time. Very entertaining.
