I used to love Connelly novels, but his characters are so overly politically correct. Characters need to have a flawed or controversial opinion now and then, you know? Getting extremely lame. The author is so worried about saying the wrong thing, or offending a person or group , its very weak..

Daisy Clayton's killer was never caught. In over ten years, there has been no breakthrough in her murder case.
Detective Renée Ballard has faced everything the LAPD's notorious dusk-till-dawn graveyard shift has thrown at her. But, until tonight, she'd never met Harry Bosch - an ex-homicide detective consumed by this case.
Soon, she too will become obsessed by the murder of Daisy Clayton.
Because Ballard and Bosch both know: every murder tells a story. And Daisy's case file reads like the first chapter in an untold tragedy that is still being written - one that could end with Ballard herself, if she cannot bring the truth to light...

Very disappointing. Too much detail, not enough action. Just like the first Ballard book.
Wasn't sure how the teaming of these two slight outcasts would work ... But needn't have worried as they compliment each other brilliantly.
Great story build up, with other cases along the way for them both, which adds to the realism of cops dealing with the day job.
Interesting addition of "black ops" SIS cops and how that triggered a response in Bosch. Wonder if he'll end up joking them in the future.
Bring on the next book with these two characters!
