*THE FIRST EVER BOSCH & BALLARD THRILLER: THE NEW BLOCKBUSTER FROM THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER*



At the end of a long, dark night Detectives Renee Ballard and Harry Bosch cross paths for the very first time.

* * * * *

Detective Renee Ballard works the graveyard shift and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours to find a stranger rifling through old files.The intruder is none other than legendary LAPD detective Harry Bosch, hunting for leads in an unsolved case that has got under his skin.

Ballard escorts him out but - curious to know what he was searching for - soon becomes obsessed by the murder of Daisy Clayton. Was she the first victim of a serial killer who still stalks the streets?

For Bosch, the case is more than personal: it may be all he has left.

But in a city where crime never sleeps, even detectives have a dark side...

Review quote

Connelly's most famous creation, retired LAPD detective Harry Bosch,, teams up with detective Renee Ballard to solve the 2009 murder of a 15-year-old runaway in a gripping, fast-paced story. * MAIL ON SUNDAY * Brilliant written in Connelly's inimitable descriptive style and compulsively readable, we keep company with his characters in the traffic jams of LA and the endless cheap diners where the cops catch their breakfast after an all-nighter. The intertwining of character is as fascinating as the cases they confront, and we are along breathlessly for the whole ride. We can only hope that the team of Ballard and Bosch will run for some years to come. -- Marina Vaizey * THE ARTS DESK * A new masterpiece. It's suspenseful and surprisingly moving. After 31 bestsellers he just keeps getting better. This one will fuel ones to come, as it unites veteran LA detective Harry Bosch and his newest creation, fesity detective Renee Ballard...What a team! What a hit! -- Alex Gordon * PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH * Ballard and Bosch could not be more different, and yet they are hewn from the same rock -- Mark Sanderson * EVENING STANDARD * Detective Renee Ballard, who made her first appearance in last year's The Late Show, returns here in the company of Connelly's long-standing serial character Harry Bosch, now retired from the LAPD and working on cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department...Connelly keeps all the plates - including the porn industry, corrupt cops and a religious zealot - spinning beautifully as the pair battle to find the truth -- Laura Wilson * THE GUARDIAN * This is a must-read detective novel, for this or any year. -- Michael Carlson * IRRESISTIBLE TARGETS * Taut in style and sombre in tone, Dark Sacred Night finds the formerly morally incorruptible Bosch journeying into darkness even as he rages against the dying of the light -- Declan Burke * IRISH TIMES *
