* * * * *

Mickey Haller, the Lincoln Lawyer, defends the man accused.

Detective Renee Ballard catches the case on the LAPD's notorious graveyard shift.

Harry Bosch is left a missing case file by his mentor who passed away. He was the man who taught Bosch that everybody counts, or nobody counts. Why did he keep the case all these years? To find the truth - or bury it?

But in Ballard, Bosch and Haller: the fire always burns. Will it light the way - or leave their lives in ashes?

Review quote

Hugely enjoyable read. * Daily Mirror * Michael Connelly is at the top of his game in The Night Fire [...] complexity and compassion combine in a humdinger of a thriller. * Evening Standard * One of the greatest crime writers roars back with a superb story [...] and never once draws breath. * Daily Mail * Connelly has few equals as a thriller writer and it speaks volumes for the world he has created for Harry Bosch [...] The Night Fire is masterfully structured and a dizzying array of plot lines dovetail in a hugely enjoyable and satisfying series of finales. * Daily Express * A cracker of a thriller, packed with surprising twists and turns, and seamlessly bringing together all of Michael Connelly's compelling lead characters, allowing each to shine in their own particular way. * Irish Independent * Michael Connelly is the greatest American crime writer of his generation. The tension builds from the first page. Past and present collide as three cases ricochet off each other in surprising ways * The Times * Advanced and interwoven with characteristic meticulous craft * Sunday Times * Taut cop thriller * Love It * The Night Fire is further proof of Connelly's undimmed creativity. Juggling a characteristically crowded storyline, Connelly demonstrates once again why he is held in such esteem * Financial Times *
