A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW BEST CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR
A CrimeReads Best Crime Novel Notable selection
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.
Detective Cassie Nash’s life is in pieces. She has lost so much: family, friends, and the respect of her colleagues. It’s been two months since the events of The Last Cut, but people in Pruitt County are still whispering behind her back. Word travels fast in small communities, and Cassie is proof.


When Cassie and Stephen are called to a crime scene at the local campground, they discover an entire family gruesomely slaughtered in the middle of the night. They delve into the personal lives of the victims in an attempt to track down who might have wanted to see them dead.


How do you find the killer when you can’t find a motive?


The answer may lie in a private investigator from Savannah, GA, who saw a crime just like this twelve years ago. Assuming the cases are connected, the detectives struggle to answer the flood of questions hitting them. Why were the two families attacked? What do they have in common? Who would massacre two families while they slept? And possibly the most important question of all: Is their perpetrator going to keep killing?
