Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective Renée Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor, the man who trained him---new from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly

Ballard & Bosch Do It AgainAs someone who has read every single one of Michael Connelly’s books, I really love how many cases and people this one covered. Ballard already feels like a character that I’ve been reading about for years even though this is only her third book. She fits so well with Harry and Mickey and Michael does a tremendous job with the character development. The Night Fire ranks right up there with Connelly’s best..Score: 5/5

Excellent book.This is my favorite Michael Connelly book in years. This was a terrific read. I could have finished reading this book in a few days but I took my time because I loved it so much and didn’t want it to end. Both Bosch and Ballard are great in this and they make a very good team here. I like that there is more than one case being investigated. Excellent book!.Score: 5/5

Too much scatalogical languageF’ing and blinding for the vocabulary impaired- the writing otherwise is great. What a shame!.Score: 1/5

The Night FireI have long loved the Harry Bosch novels. This one did not disappoint. Harry Bosch is a very real character; he ages, he makes mistakes, gets embarrassed. I really appreciate that. The stories of the cases are always interesting. I will keep reading..Score: 5/5

One of his BestI read every Connelly book...the minute they come out. As usual, he features sophisticated plot, and this book was no different. I kept me reading, finishing it faster than I wanted. There is constant action, and best of all he succeeds where lazy detectives flailed and ignore him on a case be ends up solving. Great fun read. Go for it!.Score: 5/5

What a ride . . twists & turns on every page!Enjoyable crime fiction . . couldn’t put it down!.Score: 5/5

DelightfulI surmise that, like me, many of you read several series like the Bosch series. Whether it be Child or Flynn, they have all provided enjoyment. Through the years I have found that the Bosch series continue to thrive and delight its readers while the others have become formulaic and boring. Mr Connelly provides interesting story lines and full character development. Still a joy to read..Score: 5/5
