Dark Sacred Night

Book: Dark Sacred Night
Series: Renee Ballard #2, Harry Bosch #21
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.-Goodreads

Review: I'm really enjoying this series by Michael Connelly. In this installment, Renee (still working the night shift) ends up pairing up with Harry Bosch on a cold case. Renee is a very likable main character and she and Bosch work well together. This is a straight police procedural and Connelly does a good job explaining how things work within the department. Overal., enjoyable read. 

Grade: 4/5
