The Dark Hours by Michael Connelly
Los Angeles detective Renee Ballard is sitting in her unmarked car on New Year’s Eve when she’s called to a shooting at a street party, with the victim associated with a local gang. The incident is linked to an unsolved murder investigated by retired detective Harry Bosch, who Ballard turns to for help. The two join forces on both cases, against the backdrop of the pandemic, social unrest and the storming of the US Capitol. Michael Connelly is a former police reporter, and he impresses with his specialist knowledge of the force – as well as ingenious storylines on how criminal minds work. The book will keep readers gripped from the opening page to the dramatic conclusion.
