"The pleasures of a Connelly tome are many: complex, Easter-egg-strewn plots, terrific minor characters, L.A.'s gritty underbelly. These aren't mysteries you'll forget. They'll stay with you, even haunt you."―Tina Jordan, Entertainment Weekly
"You know Harry already. You know what to expect from the storyteller Michael Connelly. Both of them deliver superbly."―Don Oldenburg, USA Today (3.5 out of 4 stars)
"As always, Connelly pulls off a fast-paced, well-drawn police procedural. . . . Consistently entertaining . . . The Burning Room will more than satisfy his fans. . . . Bosch may be up for retirement soon, but I doubt anyone would complain if he did his thing for another 20 years."―Steph Cha, Los Angeles Times
"Connelly has the magic touch. . . . Connelly is one of the best crime writers in the business, and he continues to tell compelling character-driven tales."―Jeff Ayers, Associated Press
"A doozy of a tale . . . As long as Harry always remains patrolling on the margins of this series, its greatness is secure."―Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post
"Typically excellent"―Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal
"A searing success . . . The Burning Room is a terrifically satisfying trip."―Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times
"[Connelly is] a master at construction."―Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"Superb . . . Bosch shows himself once again to be the master and if he follows through on the retirement, his absence would leave an irreplaceable gap in crime fiction."―Jack Batten, Toronto Star
"The Burning Room offers a nuanced, nicely-honed performance from Connelly."―Daneet Steffens, Boston Globe

It is a kind of CAN-read, but a real MUST it is for real fans, only. But always interesting for all lovers of police procedurals, too.
He is better off, our Harry Bosch, because all those cold cases are boring stuff. A man shot and paralyzed a long time ago, dies of blood poisoning, caused by the hit. And his case is treated as murder, because of the political implications. With his young colleague Lucia Soto, who has a very personal and very secret agenda, he has to investigate this case. And suddenly finds leads large like highways, pointing towards a very powerful man. The case simply hadn't been investigated right - and with purpose.
Harry is fighting once again against bureaucratic windmills. The DROP-programme has revealed itself a financial desaster for the LAPD and everyone in the high echelons wants to force the officers who benefit of that kind of second salary out into complete retirement. But Harry by acting really stupid, practically forces himself out at the end - he really should have known better. A second, then a third case related to the second are connected - but only very very loosely - to the main investigation. Those stories only seem to be fillers and the solutions of those cases is relatively boring, and does not convince completely. And the very end is a hammer - but Harry Bosch will live on, with or without the Los Angeles Police Department. Which really does not merit dedicated officers like him on freezing-cold cases...
This newest exit of the series about Detective Harry Bosch is all about retierement. It looms in every angle, old stories are often remembered by our hero. He is feeling between doors - and he has personally forced himself out of one. What may the door he is now entering bring to him and his long-time fans? Also as a private investigator Harry the loose cannon made a living and entertained the readers, fans or not. Since being in the DROP programme he had become more and more a tired shadow of himself. That really was't too nice to follow :(...
Time is right for a change, Harry - only for the better, I hope!
Genial konstruiert, unterhaltsam, sicher. Aber war hb schon immer so ein reaktionaerer Sack? Und falls wirklich jeder zaehlt, warum wird eine polizeiliche Hinrichtung wie eine Heldentat gefeiert? Und ausserdem ist das ding irgenwie stinklangweilig, Miss Soto included.
