Staff Reviews

In The Burning Room Michael Connelly has scored again. He has written more than 15 novels featuring the world-weary Hieronymus Bosch. And unlike most writers of series he has never gone stale, or resorted to phoning it in. In The Burning Room, Bosch now nearing retirement is paired with a young detective, new to the job. How Bosch schools the green cop is as enjoyable as watching them unravel the murder. If you haven't read Connelly this is a good place to start. I have read all his books, and found them all most enjoyable.

— From Michael


Detective Harry Bosch and his new partner investigate a recent murder where the trigger was pulled nine years earlier.

In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent.

Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Beginning with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveal that this shooting may have been anything but random.

In this gripping thriller, Michael Connelly shows once again why Harry Bosch is "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News).
