Description

Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective RenEe 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 RenEe 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.

Professional reviews

"Narrators Titus Welliver and Christine Lakin return to perform Connelly's newest offering in the Bosch/Ballard series. Connelly has solved the problem of the aging-out of his determined retired detective Harry Bosch. By pairing him with RenŽe Ballard, a young, relentless detective, we have the old guard complemented by the new and receptive mentee. They work day and night (Ballard is on the night shift) to tackle cold and very hot cases. The contrasts continue as listeners are treated to Welliver's deep, gravelly voice as Bosch, interwoven with Christin Lakin's light, softer intonations as Ballard. Each narrator delivers the individual chapters of their character, and together they deliver the dialogue between them. Bosch and Ballard make an unstoppable team as do Welliver and Lakin, who fully engage the listener. E.Q. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
