This is the latest Harry Bosch/Renee Ballard book by Connelly. Ballard is a detective with the LAPD who likes working at night, She's a bit of a loner but will ask for assistance when she thinks she needs it. She trusts some of her colleagues but not all, and is well justified in that. There are two plots in this book. One, an apparent simple New Year's Eve accident, that isn't. And a pair of serial team rapists who are brutal.

As expected with Connelly's books there are twists and turns as information is revealed. It's a very good book and well worth the time.

I enjoyed the early Connelly books very much, where he ignored politics and current events, but the last couple I have read have taken the shine off his writing for me. Dark Hours (Renee Ballard), The Law of Innocence (Lincoln Lawyer Micky Haller) have got a lot of references to Connelly's personal politics... from total Covtard panic reaction (masking panic to vaccine distribution priorities), to lengthy remarks on the "unthinkable insurrection'' in Wash DC and how horrible that is, questioning a Presidential election. I am not one of these guys that goes nuts boycotting anything or anybody I disagree with, but it sounds like Connelly has bought in to the Dem narrative pretty deeply. But I suppose if you want to hang with the in crowd in Hollywood and sell screenplays, you gotta talk the talk.


Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

+1, Connelly's a good writer but he's not only bought into the Dem narrative now he's part of it.

As Connelly has his characters in The Dark Hours excoriating the "conservatives" and their "insurrection" in D.C., does he bother to offer any criticism of ANTIFA and BLM mobs burning down cities, attacking people, destroying businesses, looting and raping?? Or is it the usual left liberal hypocrisy?

Just wondering.

I have been a fan of Connelly's writing for many years. However, his leftist politics have become apparent lately. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
