Reviews

The Night Fire is further proof of Connelly's undimmed creativity. Juggling a characteristically crowded storyline, Connelly demonstrates once again why he is held in such esteem
Financial Times
Advanced and interwoven with characteristic meticulous craft
Sunday Times
Michael Connelly is the greatest American crime writer of his generation. The tension builds from the first page. Past and present collide as three cases ricochet off each other in surprising ways
The Times
Taut cop thriller
Love It
A cracker of a thriller, packed with surprising twists and turns, and seamlessly bringing together all of Michael Connelly's compelling lead characters, allowing each to shine in their own particular way.
Irish Independent
Connelly has few equals as a thriller writer and it speaks volumes for the world he has created for Harry Bosch [...] The Night Fire is masterfully structured and a dizzying array of plot lines dovetail in a hugely enjoyable and satisfying series of finales.
Daily Express
One of the greatest crime writers roars back with a superb story [...] and never once draws breath.
Daily Mail
Michael Connelly is at the top of his game in The Night Fire [...] complexity and compassion combine in a humdinger of a thriller.
Evening Standard
Hugely enjoyable read.
