As ever in Michael Connelly's work, Los Angeles - a city in which 'no matter how close it something looked, it was still far away' - is a character in its own right. And the jazz soundtrack - 'plaintive and sad but ... with an undeniable underlying hope' - makes The Burning Room a superb swansong. (EVENING STANDARD)
It's a good story, but crucially The Burning Room shows Bosch on top form, his age no impediment to his stubbornness nor his professional insights (Marcel Berlins THE TIMES)
what Connelly delivers here - as ever - is a slice of classy, clever, page-turning stuff, as Bosch and his excellent new sidekick trace the shadows of years-old crimes whose tendrils stretch through the echelons of LA society and across the sprawl of its geography. The detective is described by his boss - 'the one that knows the most in the troop. Has all the experience.' Connelly, too, is a pair of eminently safe hands, and The Burning Room is a pleasure to read. (Alison Flood THE OBSERVER)
Connelly weaves his story as deftly as always, never slackening the tension (DAILY EXPRESS)
Connelly has lost none of his fire, nor his desire to take his readers by the throat and never let them go (DAILY MAIL)
a master of narrative tension, complex but believable plotting and three-dimensional characters ... his latest novel maintains the same high standard and relentless impetus that keeps one turning the pages. (THE SPECTATOR)
a taut and believable tale set in a grimly recognisable world where those at the top - be they career politicians or career criminals - share a disregard for the lives of those they exploit. (MAIL ON SUNDAY EVENT MAGAZINE)
A master at construction, Connelly finds a way to link the two cases, which burrow deep into Los Angeles's Latino community. As often happens in Connelly's police procedurals, Bosch's meticulously built case is undermined by political corruption in high places, leaving him 'suddenly sick to death of everything'. (SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY)
Detective Harry Bosch tackles a cold case unlike any he's ever worked, in the new thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.

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.
