Publisher Description

LAPD Detective Renée Ballard teams up with Harry Bosch in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.

Renée Ballard is working the night beat again, and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours only to find a stranger rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is retired detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin. Ballard kicks him out, but then checks into the case herself and it brings a deep tug of empathy and anger.

Bosch is investigating the death of fifteen-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally murdered and her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now, Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy and finally bring her killer to justice.

  • “Bosch…is a grizzled veteran by now; Dark Sacred Night marks the twenty-first novel to center on him. But fans always finish eager to come back for more.”

    - Entertainment Weekly
  • "Dark Sacred Night is one of the best and most affecting Bosch novels since Mr. Connelly began the saga in 1992, underscoring the growing and unsettling ambiguity surrounding its central character.”

    - Wall Street Journal
  • "[Ballard is] the complete opposite of the ancient Bosch, that is—except with the same stubborn commitment to justice that drives him…By the end of their collaboration Connelly hits his stride. He’s always been especially good when it comes to truly creepy killers—he was once a crime reporter—and his denouement here is thrilling.”

    - USA Today
  • “Of the myriad things Connelly does superbly as a crime writer, perhaps one of the least heralded is his ability to bring characters together from different series…A guaranteed chart-topper.”

    - Booklist (starred review)
  • “[An] outstanding, complex police procedural…Bosch and Ballard, both outsiders with complicated pasts, form a perfect partnership in this high spot of Edgar-winner Connelly’s long and distinguished career.”

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “Not even the canniest readers are likely to see which of these byways will end up leading to the long-overdue solution to the riddle of Daisy Clayton’s death.”
