Another fabulous Harry Bosch thriller and this time he partners with Renée Ballard on a cold case he has never been able to let go of: the brutal murder of young Daisy Clayton. As a reserve cop he has to sneak access to old files and Ballard catches him out. Intrigued, she gets hooked by the case and together they become a formidable team. The banter between them is very entertaining and both characters are so easy to like! The irascible,and anti social Bosch certainly has a big fan base. A master of his genre, Connelly writes an excellent thriller: great pace, great characters and great research.
