Even detectives have a dark side . . .

At the end of a long, dark night detectives Ren?e Ballard and Harry Bosch cross paths for the first time.

Detective Renee Ballard works the graveyard shift and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours to find a stranger rifling through old files. The intruder is none other than retired legendary LAPD detective Harry Bosch, hunting for leads in an unsolved case that has got under his skin.

Ballard escorts him out but - curious to know what he was searching for - soon becomes obsessed by the murder of Daisy Clayton. Was she the first victim of a serial killer who still stalks the streets? For Bosch, the case is more than personal: it may be all he has left.

But in a city where crime never sleeps, even detectives have a dark side . . .

Industry Reviews

Taut in style and sombre in tone, Dark Sacred Night finds the formerly morally incorruptible Bosch journeying into darkness even as he rages against the dying of the light -- Declan Burke * IRISH TIMES *
This is a must-read detective novel, for this or any year. -- Michael Carlson * IRRESISTIBLE TARGETS *
Detective Renee Ballard, who made her first appearance in last year's The Late Show, returns here in the company of Connelly's long-standing serial character Harry Bosch, now retired from the LAPD and working on cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department...Connelly keeps all the plates - including the porn industry, corrupt cops and a religious zealot - spinning beautifully as the pair battle to find the truth -- Laura Wilson * THE GUARDIAN *
Ballard and Bosch could not be more different, and yet they are hewn from the same rock -- Mark Sanderson * EVENING STANDARD *
A new masterpiece. It's suspenseful and surprisingly moving. After 31 bestsellers he just keeps getting better. This one will fuel ones to come, as it unites veteran LA detective Harry Bosch and his newest creation, fesity detective Renee Ballard...What a team! What a hit! -- Alex Gordon * PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH *
Brilliant written in Connelly's inimitable descriptive style and compulsively readable, we keep company with his characters in the traffic jams of LA and the endless cheap diners where the cops catch their breakfast after an all-nighter. The intertwining of character is as fascinating as the cases they confront, and we are along breathlessly for the whole ride. We can only hope that the team of Ballard and Bosch will run for some years to come. -- Marina Vaizey * THE ARTS DESK *
Connelly's most famous creation, retired LAPD detective Harry Bosch,, teams up with detective Renee Ballard to solve the 2009 murder of a 15-year-old runaway in a gripping, fast-paced story. * MAIL ON SUNDAY *

About the Author


Michael Connelly decided to become a writer after discovering the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Once he decided on this direction he chose a major in journalism and a minor in creative writing — a curriculum in which one of his teachers was novelist Harry Crews.

After graduating in 1980, Connelly worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, primarily specializing in the crime beat. In Fort Lauderdale he wrote about police and crime during the height of the murder and violence wave that rolled over South Florida during the so-called cocaine wars. In 1986, he and two other reporters spent several months interviewing survivors of a major airline crash. They wrote a magazine story on the crash and the survivors which was later short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. The magazine story also moved Connelly into the upper levels of journalism, landing him a job as a crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, one of the largest papers in the country, and bringing him to the city of which his literary hero, Chandler, had written.

After three years on the crime beat in L.A., Connelly began writing his first novel to feature LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch. The novel, The Black Echo, based in part on a true crime that had occurred in Los Angeles, was published in 1992 and won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by the Mystery Writers of America. Connelly has followed that up with 18 more novels. Connelly's books have been translated in 35 languages and have won the Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award, Los Angeles Times Best Mystery/Thriller Award, Shamus Award, Dilys Award, Nero Award, Barry Award, Audie Award, Ridley Award, Maltese Falcon Award (Japan), .38 Caliber Award (France), Grand Prix Award (France), and Premio Bancarella Award (Italy).

Michael was the President of the Mystery Writers of America organization in 2003 and 2004. In addition to his literary work, Michael was one of the creators, writers, and consulting producers of Level 9, a TV show about a task force fighting cyber crime, that ran on UPN in the Fall of 2000. Michael lives with his family in Florida.
