Overview

Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective Renée Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor, the man who trained him—new from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly

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, John Jack Thompson, is dead, and his widow gives Bosch a murder book, one that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD twenty years before — the unsolved killing of a troubled young man.

Bosch takes the murder book to Detective Renée Ballard and asks her to help him discover what about this crime lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. As she begins her inqueries — while still working her own cases on the midnight shift — Ballad finds aspects of the initial investigation that just don't add up.

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

Written with the intense pacing and masterful suspense that have made Michael Connelly "the hard-boiled fiction master of our time" (NPR), The Night Fire continues the unofficial partnership of two fierce detectives determined not to let the fire with burn out.

Harry Bosch is one of my favorite detectives. And Renee Ballard is a worthy “partner”. The chapters alternate between the two. Here, they are re-examining a cold case from 20 years ago. Harry’s mentor has recently died. His widow found a murder book in his desk and hands it over to Harry. This is the case Harry and Renee partner on investigating. What’s unique is that it doesn’t appear the mentor had actually worked the case, either on the force or after his retirement. So, why did he have it? One thing I always like about Connelly’s books is he never pretends a detective would just have a single case. Even Harry in retirement has multiple balls in the air. Harry and Renee both search for the truth, but they also struggle with helping anyone on the defense side of things, a substory that is contained in Harry’s chapters as he helps Mickey Haller with a case. I appreciate that Connelly paints Renee as just as strong and intelligent a character as Harry. That said, they always come across as human. Several times, another character points something out to Renee and she realizes she should have picked up on it earlier. With the actors that play Harry and Mickey firmly pictured in my head, I’m still trying to decide which actress should play Renee. This is a great story that kept my interest throughout. I’ve got to give Connelly credit, the man continues to come up with fascinating, timely storylines. I’ve read everything Connelly has written but I still think this book could easily be read as a standalone. My thanks to netgalley and Little, Brown for an advance copy of this book.

Developing character Renee Ballard losing her quirkinesses and becoming an admired Harry Bosch-like favorite.

Book has no soul, no cohesiveness. It's just characters floating around and bumping into each other. Ballard is back to being more manic, stupid and reckless than she is a good detective. She's not a true detective. She's just a self-flagulating neurotic who can't sleep. And Connelly is clearly over Harry Bosch as a book character. He's turned him into a pathetic old dog he keeps around because he doesn't have the heart to shoot. Note to Connelly - you don't have to keep writing book Harry now that you're clearly more focused on TV Harry. The biggest irritation is the gangbanger BS. Please white guys stop trying to write street slang. AND does anyone believe a retired shot caller would manage to keep himself alive, out of prison and go legit then chatter away on the phone about why he set up a murder and to a dumbass who broke code and gave out his phone number (which would never happen btw). He should've just set up the murder over the phone too. Ridiculous. This book would not have been published if it wasn't Connelly. I haven't gotten to the end but I've already solved the mystery.

Harry has a difficult time, no longer an active cop, but teaming him up with Renee Ballard is a great idea. They work well together (and separately). The story moves smoothly and fairly quickly. I hope there are more to follow.

I like these two characters together. I am ready for his next one with these two!
