Harry Bosch teams up with LAPD detective Renée Ballard to solve the murder of a young girl in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. Detective Renée Ballard is working the night beat -- known in LAPD slang as "the late show" -- and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours 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 can't let him go through department records, but when he leaves, she looks into the case herself and feels a deep tug of empathy and anger. She has never been the kind of cop who leaves the job behind at the end of her shift -- and she wants in. The murder, unsolved, was of fifteen-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally killed, her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy, and to finally bring her killer to justice. Along the way, the two detectives forge a fragile trust, but this new partnership is put to the test when the case takes an unexpected and dangerous turn. Dark Sacred Night for the first time brings together these two powerhouse detectives in a riveting story that unfolds with furious momentum. And it shows once more why "there's no doubt Connelly is a master of crime fiction" (Associated Press).… (més)

Bosch teams up with Renee Ballard to solve a cold case of Daisy Clayton. Parts of this book were used in the streaming version. Great readers, including Titus. ( )

Detective Renee Ballard is working her usual late night shift when she finds a man rifling files at the station. She is amazed anyone got into the station, but the stranger is retired LAPD detective Harry Bosch, working on a cold case that has turned personal. While Ballard sends him away, she begins looking into the file herself: the murder of a fifteen-year-old runaway named Daisy, selling herself on the streets, who dumped in bleach as a forensic countermeasure. Daisy's mother, a recovering drug addict was rescued in the last Bosch novel, by Harry and an investigator pal. Ballard and Bosch are cut from the same cloth, and yearn for justice for the defenseless. They join forces, each uncertain as to how much they can trust their partner.

Each detective is juggling other cases too. Ballard has an accidental death and theft case as well as a missing person investigation, while Bosch is working a gang-related killing, where one of his sources is murdered. They seem to mold together as each has similar LAPD job experience and troubles and eventually are looking out for the other when things go badly. I especially liked Ballard's decision not to call Bosch out on his illegal use of an ex-partner's username/password when she remembered doing the same thing in her past.

Bosch's decision-making is becoming more erratic, and if Connelly continues to have them work together, I hope she becomes dominant. ( )

I have read 35 of Michael Connelly's books (including 26 of the Harry Bosch series), awarding them an average of 4 stars each. This work is my least favorite among them. In fact, I suspect it was written by another writer entirely under Connelly's name. It lacks everything that makes an MC novel entertaining.

Part of my reaction is due to the introduction of Renée Ballard as a co-protagonist. She is said to be a homeless surfer detective, and I found her entirely flat and uninteresting as a character. Meanwhile, Harry is aged, burned out and limping around with a bum knee. Having retired twice, he is now working as unpaid volunteer for the tiny San Fernando Police Department.

The plot? Bosch is investigating a "cold case" from 9 years in his past, the death of a 15-year old runaway (Daisy Clayton), daughter of a drug addict (introduced in the “Two Kinds of Truth.”) Daisy was brutally murdered on the streets of Hollywood, her body left in a dumpster. Ballard and Bosch join forces to figure out what happened and bring her killer to justice. But while this case is the main one, various side cases pop-up; Harry is involved in one with gangland connections that goes badly; and Ballard is investigating a break-in at a strip club, an alleged rape and a theft of some Andy Warhol prints. It all ends nicely; Bosch rescues Ballard from an evil perp, and then torments him into confession. End of story, but not soon enough. ( )

Interesting read. The characters are not as memorable as other mysteries I have read but do hold your interest. ( )

Dark Sacred Night introduces Renée Ballard, homeless surfer detective, through whose point of view we immediately see her astutely determine as accidental a death that patrol officers assumed was a horrific murder.
Ballard meets Bosch for the first time when she apprehends him having picked a lock on the file cabinets in her office. She learns he is working on an open-unsolved rape and murder case. The victim, Daisy Clayton, had run away to the streets from her addictive mother, Elizabeth whom Bosch has taken into his home as a rehabilitation project.
The points of view switch between Bosch and Ballard as each attack the investigation with their own skills. The resulting narrative finds them working together.
