About The Book

On New Year’s Eve at the end of one of the hardest years in history, hundreds of revellers shoot their guns into the air in time-honoured LA tradition. But as the rain of lead comes down, a man is shot dead in the middle of a crowded street party.
Detective Renée Ballard soon connects the bullet to an unsolved cold case last worked by legendary ex-LAPD detective Harry Bosch. As they investigate where the old and new cases connect, a new crime shatters the night shift.
The Midnight Men are a pair of violent predators who stalk the city during the dark hours, and will kill to keep their identities secret.
In a police department shaken to the core by pandemic and protests, both cases have the power to save Ballard’s belief in the job – or take everything from her…


My Thoughts

I’ll admit that I always love to read romantic books during Christmas, but nothing can compare it to a good mystery book, murders are always exciting, don’t you think?
I know that it’s not always easy to start reading a famous series from the last published book, but if you don’t try it, you’ll never know why it’s so famous! Because, let’s be honest, Harry Bosch is a name we all recognize, a detective that we all should remember if we are planning a murder, he can catch you without blinking his eyes, believe me. But even, if this is the 35th book of the Harry Bosch Universe and the fourth book of the LAPD Detective Renée Ballard series, they are worth every page. Some books are more addictive or twisted, but this detective couple is always worth the read.
This book will not be an exception, someone has been killed in a crowded street party. How is it possible that no one has seen anything or that no one stopped it? Of course the case will not be as easy as it could seem, the bullet is related to a cold case that Bosch worked on…
I love that Michael Connelly’s books are never strait, there are multiple cases and characters always involved in the book that makes it more addictive. Because, even if the case can be really good, what always move the readers are the characters, their story and relations.
I think this is a book any crime reader would enjoy, it doesn’t matter if this is your first Harry Bosch or the last, you’ll not be able to stop reading.
