Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of November 2020: In The Law of Innocence, Michael Connelly brilliantly captures the desperation of a lawyer-turned-defendant facing a long stretch in a prison full of people with scores to settle. Narration in the first person, showing a canny legal mind working furiously to hit on the right legal play, calibrates the suspense to an unbearable, read-in-one-sitting level. —Vannessa Cronin, Amazon Book Review

Review

"Connelly is without peer when it comes to police procedurals, and once again proves that he's the modern master of the form."

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Night Fire"

The Night Fire offers more than a few incendiary surprises.-- "Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times"

A virtuoso performance...
The Night Fire glows with the instincts and intelligence Bosch and Ballard bring to their pursuit of the truth.-- "Collette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times"

Breathless action...deep character studies...
The Night Fire is Connelly's twenty first outing with Bosch, but the author has so much more to show us about him. Only three books in, Ballard has even more fodder for Connelly to uncover. In The Night Fire, Connelly again shows his mission: strong plots and sturdy characters.-- "Oline Cogdill, Sun Sentinel"

Connelly is the Raymond Chandler of this generation, and readers will be studying his writing methods decades from now. He has created another novel that feels authentic on every level, and the underlying theme of mortality running through the narrative makes everything in the story more urgent.--
Jeff Ayers, Associated Press-- "Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times"

Connelly is without peer when it comes to police procedurals, and once again proves that he's the modern master of the form.--
Publishers Weekly (starred review)-- "Collette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times"

Connelly manages to top himself with his latest intensely gripping thriller...He tells a superb tale with an economy of words using a no-nonsense, fly-on-the-wall style of writing...Fans of this prolific author of crime dramas and either series will find this best-seller-list-bound novel hard to put down.--
Library Journal (starred review)-- "Bill Ott, Booklist (starred review)"

One of the greatest crime writers of all time...Connelly continues to deliver winner after winner, year in and year out...reading one of his books is an experience unlike anything else the genre has to offer.--
Ryan Steck, Crimereads-- "Collette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times"

Remarkable narrative legerdemain...Not only has Connelly created another fully formed series lead in Renée, who has her own fascinating backstory, but he has also forged a fascinating yin-and-yang relationship between the old school Harry and the unconventional loner Renèe...Master chef Connelly has once again combined familiar ingredients into a new and completely satisfying dish. Connelly is on a roll, with three consecutive number-one
New York Times bestsellers. Don't bet against number four.-- "Bill Ott, Booklist (starred review)"

There's something for everyone in this jam-packed plot: murder, arson, professional rivalry, salty cop talk and noisy domestic disputes that turn very ugly very quickly. Me, I go for the procedural details: who does what and how things get done from the minute the cops on shift at the Hollywood Division are sent to investigate a murder. Connelly is pretty much the current dean of procedural writers.--
Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review-- "Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
