Note: this review contains spoilers from previous Connelly novels. It avoids specific plot points from The Night Firebut makes general observations about the narrative.

The Night Fire (2019)

The Night Fire is Michael Connelly’s newest installment in his literary world. This novel features his longest running character Harry Bosch teaming up once again with his newest character Renée Ballard. This is their second pairing and takes place a few months after the events of Dark Sacred Night. Harry is in fact still recovering from injuries sustained near the conclusion of that novel.

As a longtime Bosch fan, it is always a treat to see Harry in action. Bosch is Connelly’s spin on the hard boiled detective. Through the decades, Harry’s determination, grit, and dedication to justice remain unwavering even as the world and the city of LA changes around him.

Thank you! It is always a joy to read the novels and watch the show. The hard part is the waiting!

I put down two books to read this - Renee Ballard #3, Harry Bosch #22. I'm new here, and it's probably already mentioned, but I see it as no coincidence that Harry shares the same first name as that Callahan guy of Clint Eastwood fame lol. And it took me a while, and I picked this up while watching Bosch on Amazon Prime (great series!), but J. Edgar finally clicked in my brain!  [ Hoover ]

What a terrific review, dempom! Thank you!

Waiting.... Yes....

I came to Harry Bosch in The Black Echo, which somehow had gotten onto my sci-fi list. By page 50 I realised it wasn’t sci-fi at all, but I was hooked!

I then inhaled 18 Bosch books in about 4 months in 2015. What an excruciating wait for subsequent books! I did meet Michael at the Waterstones Bookshop in Piccadilly, London, in October of 2018, and the evening was fabulous.

I have The Night Fire on my iPad now, and will be starting it shortly.
