Waterstones Says

Once more interweaving two of his signature crime thriller strands, Connelly pairs up Ballard and Bosch for a gripping cold case that raises uncomfortable questions about the latter’s former mentor. Tightly plotted and masterfully paced, The Night Fire confirms the might of this new detective duo.

LAPD Detective Renee Ballard and Harry Bosch come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor - but was this flame kept alive, or a secret that was meant to be snuffed out?

Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, J.J. Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow hands Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before - the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals.

Bosch brings the murder book to Renee Ballard and asks her to help him find what about the case lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. That will be their starting point.

The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a worrying question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Night Fire is further proof of Connelly's undimmed creativity. Juggling a characteristically crowded storyline, Connelly demonstrates once again why he is held in such esteem' - The Financial Times
