The Night Fire opening line: Bosch arrived late and had to park on a cemetery lane far from the grave site.
Bosch has finally retired, well officially that is. But nothing can stop him from solving crimes. And he needs a way to stay in the game. Detective Ballard will be his way and as much as he can help her, she can help him. Bosch will always seek truth and justice, no matter which side of the court he is working for.
The Night Fire
SOME CRIMES LIGHT A FIRE THAT NEVER GOES OUT…
* * * * *
A JUDGE MURDERED IN A CITY PARK
Mickey Haller, the Lincoln Lawyer, defends the man accused.
A HOMELESS PERSON BURNED ALIVE
Detective Renée Ballard catches the case on the LAPD’s notorious graveyard shift.
AN UNSOLVED HOMICIDE FROM A LIFETIME AGO
Harry Bosch is left a missing case file by his mentor who passed away. He was the man who taught Bosch that everybody counts, or nobody counts. Why did he keep the case all these years? To find the truth – or bury it?
IN L.A. CRIME NEVER SLEEPS
But in Ballard, Bosch and Haller: the fire always burns. Will it light the way – or leave their lives in ashes?

I had to read the in-between books so I could make sense of how Detective Ballard fits in. Not that I minded as this is one of the authors whose books I collect. A good read and if you like crime solving and cold cases this one’s for you.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Jonathan Ball Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

Hi Tandy, please delete my other comment. I work on two computers and got distracted. I like the sound of this book although I seem to have less time for reading at the moment, hopefully that won’t be forever.
I am trying not to read too much as there are so many other things I could be doing 🙂
