The Burning Room by Michael Connelly Book Summary

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Detective Harry Bosch and his rookie partner investigate a cold case that gets very hot . . . very fast.
In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet ten years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other clues are virtually nonexistent. Even a veteran cop would find this one tough going, but Bosch's new partner, Detective Lucia Soto, has no homicide experience. A young star in the department, Soto has been assigned to Bosch so that he can pass on to her his hard-won expertise.
Now Bosch and Soto are tasked with solving a murder that turns out to be highly charged and politically sensitive. Beginning with the bullet that has been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old evidence, and these soon reveal that the shooting was anything but random.
As their investigation picks up speed, it leads to another unsolved case with even greater stakes: the deaths of several children in a fire that occurred twenty years ago. But when their work starts to threaten careers and lives, Bosch and Soto must decide whether it is worth risking everything to find the truth, or if it's safer to let some secrets stay buried.
In a swiftly-moving novel as relentless and compelling as its hero, Michael Connelly shows once again why Harry Bosch is "one of the most popular and enduring figures in American crime fiction" (Chicago Tribune).

Hoping There is More!!I so enjoyed this latest adventure with Harry. I have followed his life from his time in Vietnam (Black Echo) through all his partners, lovers, wife and daughter to his present short time within his DROP contract. The "silverback" is back! Conelly's attention to detail and story development was superb. I just hope Harry will be back. There is still some time on his contract, and many more cases to solve!.Score: 5/5

Best Bosch Book YetFor those who have followed Harry Bosch through the years, this is the culmination of Harry's career with the LAPD. The new addition to the detective squad is interesting, admirable and worthy of her own series. Michael Connelly can't write a follow-up fast enough for me!.Score: 5/5

Interesting but juvenile writingPlot is not too bad but too full of coincidences. The writing is, however, really amateurish, almost "see Dick, see Dick run." By far worse than his other books. Makes me think a cheap ghost..Score: 3/5

The Burning RoomConnelly at his best; thoughtful powerful. Doesn't lead you on rather escorts you through the streets and ethos of LA. Connelly expresses a sense of relationship and humanity. All the time without losing sight of the story and mystery of his story. Excellent read!!.Score: 5/5

DisappointedI have read all the Harry Bosch books and enjoyed the ride. Great stories and Harry is a memorable character - I love the guy. But this book was just blah and in the end was a real downer. I unfortunately found it disappointing..Score: 2/5

Another Great Thrill RideLet me just start off by saying that I may be slightly biased because I can never get enough of the thrill ride that I get from reading Mr. Connelly's novels. I am one of those eager readers who anxiously awaits the next book and preorders it before Amazon shows the official cover. Over the years I have had to deliberately slow my reading down to keep from reading it in a day and having to wait until the next book is released. With that being said, this book was no exception. The Burning Room was written with such realistic intensity that I was able to easily visualize each character, setting, and scene in the book. As always, I got so caught up in the "the chase" of solving the case that I could not put the book down and lost track of time. In the "Burning Room" Harry Bosch, the main character, appears to have been paired with his protégé (Lucy Soto). Although seen as a rising star by the higher ranks, it's clear that Ms. Soto could still use the wisdom and guidance of a more experienced detective such as Harry Bosch. As the pair start to work a case, Bosch began to learn more and more about his protégé and her reasons for wanting to become a cop. As the storyline unfolds we quickly learn that "the chase" to solve an open unsolved case involves a mariachi musician who succumbs to a bullet wound from a crime that occurred years ago. We later learn that this crime may also be indirectly linked to Ms. Soto's past. what happens next? Well I don't want to be a spoiler but I can truly say that you will not be disappointed. This is a must read with an interesting ending. So interesting that once again I am sitting on the edge of my seat, with a puzzled look, wondering what will happen next..Score: 5/5

ForcedNot one of his best. Usually really enjoy Harry Bosch novels, but it was like he wasn't into writing this one..Score: 3/5

Huge disappointmentI am a big Michael Connelly fan, and have read every book he has written. This was by far the worst book he has put out. I kept waiting for the pace to pick up, for some kind of action to draw me in, but it never got going. It seemed like Connelly just phoned this one in. Worst of all, the ending was pathetic. Not sure what happened here, but it was not good. I hope this was an aberration, but even if it was, that doesn't get me the money I paid for this book back..Score: 1/5

Slow readingIn this detective story, the chief asks the two main investigators how soon they will solve the case. You will ask the same thing? Often. This book goes on and on, slowly..Score: 3/5

Another great Bosch adventureThoroughly engrossing, cleverly constructed with a bunch of surprises. As usual we are allowed to guess what have have happened and what approach should be taken, and Bosch proves us wrong. Another great read, captivating and enthralling. I just wish the author would reference the many acronyms used rather than assuming we all know what they mean..Score: 4/5

The Burning RoomHopefully this will not be the last we read of Harry Bosch. As a lifelong fan (Harry and I have aged along together), I know that all things eventually come to an end but I hope Harry and I both will have more time together! As are all Connelly books, this is a great story, with enough actual references to make it all the more engaging. Thank you, Michael..Score: 5/5
