Having sold – to date - more than seventy-four million copies of his novels worldwide, Philadelphia-born author Michael Connelly is one of the most successful crime writers working today. A lifelong fan of Raymond Chandler, Connelly worked as a journalist, co-authoring a magazine story that was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize.
His first novel, The Black Echo, won the prominent Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award for Best First Novel in 1992 and launched the phenomenally popular Harry Bosch series. He is also the author of the Mickey Haller series as well as several stand-alone novels and other mini-series. His novels Blood Work and The Lincoln Lawyer have both been successfully adapted for screen.
In a thrilling new partnership, Dark Sacred Night picks up the story of detective Harry Bosch in the first novel in a new series, pairing Bosch’s talents with that of Renee Ballard, who made her entrance in the Ballard series-opener The Late Show.
At the end of a long, dark night Detectives Renee Ballard and Harry Bosch cross paths for the very first time. Detective Renee 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 Hieronymus ‘Harry’ Bosch, working a cold case that has crept under his skin.
