Dark Sacred Night
- A Ballard and Bosch Novel
- Written by: Michael Connelly
- Narrated by: Christine Lakin, Titus Welliver
- Length: 10 hrs and 39 mins
Renée Ballard is working the night beat again and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours only to find a stranger rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is retired detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin. Ballard kicks him out but then checks into the case herself, and it brings a deep tug of empathy and anger. Bosch is investigating the death of 15-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally murdered and her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now, Ballard joins forces with Bosch.
Great book, not a fan of the split narration

Loved all the Bosch books until now
The story might be good but it's so hard to follow because of the narration it's hard to tell. Titus Welliver was THE Harry Bosch; he was so good - until this book. It seems like he just didn't have his heart in this one. Christine Lakin may be good for other roles but definitely does not complement Titus in a Harry Bosch book. And the two of them sharing the narration just does not work. I very much hope Michael Connelly and Titus Welliver are able to get back on the stride they had up until now, this was such a good series.
