Michael Connelly's first Renée Ballard mystery, The Late Show, was one of my Best Reads last year, so you know I had to be on the lookout for the next book in the series. Well, I found it and did one of my patented Happy Dances when I did.
Here's the information I was able to find:
|Available October 30, 2018!|
"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."
Teaming Ballard with one of my all-time favorite characters, Harry Bosch, could be a stroke of genius, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the book to read what happens. How about you? Did you become a Ballard fan after reading The Late Show? If you did, you must be waiting for Dark Sacred Night, too.
Hurry up, October!
