Dark Sacred Night
Dark Sacred Night | Michael Connelly
At the end of a long, dark night Detectives Rene Ballard and Harry Bosch cross paths for the very first time. * * * * * Detective Rene 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 fifteen-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. PRE-ORDER THE NEW BLOCKBUSTER CRIME THRILLER FROM THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER TODAY. * * * * * Critics agree, crime writing doesn't come better than Connelly: 'One of the world's greatest crime writers' Daily Mail 'A master of the genre' Stephen King 'Crime thriller writing of the highest order' Guardian 'A superb natural storyteller' Lee Child 'Harry Bosch: one of the finest minds in crime fiction' Evening Standard 'America's greatest living crime writer' Daily Express 'A crime writing genius' Independent on Sunday

Whoops! Thought I was up to date with the #Bosch books but in amongst the bedlam of emigrating last year I didn‘t get around to this one! Happily rectified - now onto The Night Fire at last!

Took me a while to get into this one but when I did I really enjoyed it. Great second half of the book and a good ending.
It's got me excited for The Night Fire which is out in October and has Bosch, Ballard and Haller in it 😍
Can't believe I'm upto date with this series!

This was an easy book to chew though - a pager turner that picks up where the show leaves off to find the murderer of Daisy Clayton. Love this new book from Michael Connelly; a nice blend of Bosch and Ballard‘s perspective. I love the real, raw struggle of Ballard‘s reality of being a woman in a male-dominated field.

My reading this month has pretty much come to a grinding halt. Too much work and stress and life. I‘ve been decompressing with far too much tv. This was a great continuation of the latest season of Bosch. Also my #nightoriented pick for #booked2019. And I‘m up to date on a series! 🎉🎉🎉

BarbaraTheBibliophage Sending hugs or lots of 🍷 to you! We‘re watching the new Bosch season too. I‘d like to read the books, but don‘t want to start another series I‘ll never be up to date on! 😜 7mo

Scrappymags 3-word review: Continuing bad-ass saga

Ballard is being revealed like an onion - layer after layer except what I‘m finding I‘m loving (bleck to onions). There‘s a story there - something hidden but her tough nature is enticing. I absolutely adore having a powerful female lead! Paired with Bosch? I‘m sold.

I loved this book! Michael Connelly is one of my favorite authors and I love the Harry Bosch series. This is the second book in the Renee Ballard series and it features Harry. I loved that both characters were able to work together to solve almost a decade old case. Their determination was so great. I am excited for more of the crossover novels!

Finished book number 2 for #24in48. Thank goodness for audio books! Rory Gilmore has been keeping me company during my reading. This Book combined Bosch with Renee Ballard. The audio was great with Christine Larkin and Titus Welliver. #dogsoflitsy #booked2019 #femaledetective

The second Ballard book and I still really liked it! There was a lot going on, but it was fun (as much fun as mystery and suspense can be). May have to read all the Bosch books eventually.

Caffeinated_Reader Definitely recommend this book. Extremely intense story and made me pace the house on more than one occasion with panic and excitement. I love Harry Bosch so much. I can‘t wait for more cases taken on by Ballard and Bosch 😍🤓📖 13mo

This latest from Micheal Connelly seamlessly combines his two current series with a solid cold case mystery. Connelly‘s books are traditional procedurals yet somehow manages to feel fresh and unique. Here his young brash female detective is the perfect counterpoint for a slower version of Bosch who is questioning his skills as both a detective and as a man and his worth to society. Both narrators are splendid in their performances.

#BookMail Pt10 WOW, I didn‘t actually realize how many books came during the last month. Think as of today I‘ll be on a #bookbuyingban until at least Xmas! This was another signed preorder from Waterstones, they dropped it to half price so I just had to get it. The first in the combo of Ballard & Bosch, hopefully it‘s as great as his original series was.

TrishB Half way through now - it is 👍🏻 13mo

Dark Sacred Night is a crime thriller starring retired Harry Bosch and Detective Renee Ballard.

The writing is quite fast paced and entertaining with some great characterisation and a good eye for detail. There are several plot lines that all start to come together, making this a quite enjoyable and absorbing read.

thanks to the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Cathythoughts Sounds great. I‘ve only read a few. Wry early ones ... loved them. We must pick our books for this Bookclub soon. I guess we await an email for further instructions... I have a few in mind. 👍🏻😊 14mo
