Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"[Ballard is] the complete opposite of the ancient Bosch, that is—except with the same stubborn commitment to justice that drives him…By the end of their collaboration Connelly hits his stride. He’s always been especially good when it comes to truly creepy killers—he was once a crime reporter—and his denouement here is thrilling.” USA Today
"Dark Sacred Night is one of the best and most affecting Bosch novels since Mr. Connelly began the saga in 1992, underscoring the growing and unsettling ambiguity surrounding its central character.” Wall Street Journal
“Bosch…is a grizzled veteran by now; Dark Sacred Night marks the twenty-first novel to center on him. But fans always finish eager to come back for more.” Entertainment Weekly
“[An] outstanding, complex police procedural…Bosch and Ballard, both outsiders with complicated pasts, form a perfect partnership in this high spot of Edgar-winner Connelly’s long and distinguished career.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Of the myriad things Connelly does superbly as a crime writer, perhaps one of the least heralded is his ability to bring characters together from different series…A guaranteed chart-topper.” Booklist (starred review)
“Not even the canniest readers are likely to see which of these byways will end up leading to the long-overdue solution to the riddle of Daisy Clayton’s death.” Kirkus Reviews
