A CrimeReads Best Crime Novel Notable selection
Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective Renée Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor, the man who trained him

new from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly

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, and his widow gives Bosch a murder book, one that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD twenty years before -- the unsolved killing of a troubled young man.

Bosch takes the murder book to Detective Renée Ballard and asks her to help him discover what about this crime lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. As she begins her inqueries -- while still working her own cases on the midnight shift -- Ballad finds aspects of the initial investigation that just don't add up.

The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a disturbing question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?
Written with the intense pacing and masterful suspense that have made Michael Connelly 'the hard-boiled fiction master of our time' (NPR), The Night Fire continues the unofficial partnership of two fierce detectives determined not to let the fire with burn out.

I Don\'t like all of MC\'s books but the Renee Ballard, Harry Bosch books are pretty fun. I have listened to 3 out of 4 so far. They are less formulaic than most of the rest of this Genre. Definitely worth the time.

This is the first audio book that I have listened to in many years (I remember them as books on tape) and I was extremely pleased. I am a big Harry Bosch fan and I found this book to be tremendously interesting and engrossing. As far as the two narrators, Titus Welliver and Christine Larkin, I thought they were excellent. Overall I could not have been more impressed by the whole experience, and I would strongly recommend the audio version of The Night Fire.

Listened for hour and half and found it very boring. Did not finish

Just ok compared to the other Bosch novels. Not as developed or as deep. More like going on a ride along.

Loved the story. Narration really made the book come to life.

Very contrived ending, not up to Connolly’s usual high standard. Maybe it’s time for Bosch to exit stage left and leave the docks on Ballard.

Very well written as always. Best narration of all that I have listened to (at least 10 others) really like the idea of having both the male and female narrators.
