Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, John Jack Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow hands Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before -- the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals. Bosch brings the murder book to Renee Ballard and asks her to help him find what about the case lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. That will be their starting point. The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a worrying question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?… (more)

Loved this book. Love the continuation of an additional character. He remains my favorite detective especially as he gets older ( )

Working 3 crimes. Bosch and Renee and then Bosch and Haller. All are interesting. ( )

What can I say about this book? You always know what you are getting when you crack open a Bosch book. Interesting cases, great dialog, and a detailed procedural. Night Flight certainly lives up to those expectations.

As of late, author Michael Connelly has addd a new character - Rene Ballard - to the mix in order to spice things up. Truth is she steals most of this book.

Night Flight continues in the strong tradition set by Connelly over a decades long career and you won't go wrong by spending time with Ballard, Bosch and the colorful supporting cast. ( )

In this book, Connelly has combined the characters of his three successes. Bosch, Ballard and Haller, working at times together, at other times working alone. It all ties together in the end to produce a great novel. Personally, this is be one of my favorites. ( )
