Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective Renée Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch’s mentor, the man who trained him to be a homicide detective.

Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, John Jack Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow hands Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before — the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals.

Bosch brings the murder book to Renée Ballard and asks her to help him find what about the case lit Thompson’s fire all those years ago. That will be their starting point.

The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a worrying question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?

The Night Fire will be released in print, eBook and audiobook on the 21st of October in Australia and New Zealand, on October 22 in the USA and Canada, and on the 29th of October in the UK and Ireland. (UK/Ireland eBook and audiobook formats will be available on 22 October.) 

You can pre-order the book now. 

PS: Mickey Haller will be in The Night Fire, too.

“Connelly is in top storytelling form, weaving seamlessly unrelated pieces of information to form a case that will leave readers breathless. Whoever thought that Bosch was finished as an investigator is so wrong; the addition of Ballard as his “partner” has breathed new life into this complex and fascinating series. We highly recommend this brilliant book.”
– Authors On The Air – Book Review Crew

“A cold case pulls Harry Bosch back from retirement and into another eventful partnership with Detective Renée Ballard of the LAPD. …guaranteed to please anyone who thinks the cops sometimes get it wrong.”
– Kirkus Reviews

"Connelly continues to cement his legacy as one of the greatest crime writers of all time, and reading one of his books is an experience unlike anything else the genre has to offer. Look for The Night Fire to make everyone’s “Best of” lists at the end of the year . . . right where it belongs."

-The Real Book Spy

“Not only has Connelly created another fully formed series lead in Renée, who has her own fascinating backstory, but he has also forged a fascinating yin-and-yang relationship between the old school Harry and the unconventional loner Renèe… Master chef Connelly has once again combined familiar ingredients into a new and completely satisfying dish.” – Booklist ⭐️ Starred Review

The Night Fire’s gritty nightscape and cast of compassionate characters will hook anyone, whether or not they’re already a Connelly fan.” – Apple Books Review

“There’s something for everyone in this jam-packed plot: murder, arson, professional rivalry, salty cop talk and noisy domestic disputes that turn very ugly very quickly. Me, I go for the procedural details: who does what and how things get done from the minute the cops on shift at the Hollywood Division are sent to investigate a murder. Connelly is pretty much the current dean of procedural writers. His main characters – Bosch, Ballard and Haller – use different methods but nobody misses a trick.”
– Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

“In “The Night Fire,” Connelly again shows his mission: strong plots and sturdy characters.”
– Oline Cogdill, Sun Sentinel
