A MURDER YEARS IN THE MAKING
A murder in the middle of a street party seems a senseless tragedy. But the victim had a dark past which came back to haunt him.

THE DEEPER YOU LOOK
Detective Renée Ballard connects the killing to an unsolved case last worked by ex-LAPD legend Harry Bosch. But then a new crime shatters the night shift…

THE DARKER IT GETS
The Midnight Men are a deadly pair of predators who stalk the city during the dark hours and disappear without a trace.

Ballard once believed her job was to bring the truth to light. In a police department shaken to the core by protests and pandemic, both cases have the power to save her – or end her…

Reviews

Consistently excellent... The plotting is as skilful as ever, and the pacing as relentless
Mail On Sunday
The Dark Hours is yet another superb thriller from a writer at the top of his game
Sunday Express
An authentic, topical and terrifying thriller: one of Michael Connelly's very best.
THE TIMES
Thoroughly engrossing ... The Dark Hours offers plenty of shocking scenes and clever surprises
Wall Street Journal
Ballard and Bosch are a great combination as they work in and around a police force that Ballard believes too often aims to 'protect and serve the image instead of the citizens.'
Washington Post
A masterpiece
Publishers Weekly
Relentless on their own, Ballard's and Bosch's combined skills...could be combustible
LA Times
