The Dark Hours PDF-A Wall Street Journal and South Florida Sun-Sentinel Best Book of the Year
“A masterpiece”—LAPD detective Renée Ballard must join forces with Harry Bosch to find justice in a city scarred by fear and social unrest after a methodical killer strikes on New Year’s Eve (Publishers Weekly).
There’s chaos in Hollywood at the end of the New Year’s Eve countdown. Working her graveyard shift, LAPD detective Renée Ballard waits out the traditional rain of lead as hundreds of revelers shoot their guns into the air. Only minutes after midnight, Ballard is called to a scene where a hardworking auto shop owner has been fatally hit by a bullet in the middle of a crowded street party.
Ballard quickly concludes that the deadly bullet could not have fallen from the sky and that it is linked to another unsolved murder—a case at one time worked by Detective Harry Bosch. At the same time, Ballard hunts a fiendish pair of serial rapists, the Midnight Men, who have been terrorizing women and leaving no trace.
Determined to solve both cases, Ballard feels like she is constantly running uphill in a police department indelibly changed by the pandemic and recent social unrest. It is a department so hampered by inertia and low morale that Ballard must go outside to the one detective she can count on: Harry Bosch. But as the two inexorable detectives work together to find out where old and new cases intersect, they must constantly look over their shoulders. The brutal predators they are tracking are ready to kill to keep their secrets hidden.
Unfolding with unstoppable drive and nail-biting intrigue, The Dark Hours shows that “relentless on their own, Ballard’s and Bosch’s combined skills…could be combustible” (Los Angeles Times).

Old “Sorry, no, this book is definitely not “a masterpiece” whatever Publisher’s Weekly has been convinced to call it. It is, at best, average Michael Connelly, well back in the middle of the pack in all his legacy of excellent crime novels.
The worst part of reading it is constantly flinching at Connelly’s stretching and bending of the narrative to fit what he apparently feels are the political requirements of contemporary society. The book is absolutely drowning in Covid piety. Ballard can’t take a step without reassuring us that she’s putting on her face mask. Heck, even when she has to lower her mask to drink a cup of coffee she quickly announces to us that she has turned her head away from everyone else. It’s not a pretty sight to watch a fine novelist desperately pandering to popular culture the way Connelly does in this book, and I suspect the novel will age very poorly because of it.
Maybe the book’s just too California for me, but by a quarter of the way in it was already feeling like the Karen of crime novels. I’m sick to death of being lectured in real life. I sure as hell don’t want to be lectured when I settle down with a new cop novel.”
gsxr “This book is outstanding , Michael Connelly is in top form. I’ve read all the Harry Bosch books, including the shorts, the ones with Haller, and now all the Ballard and Bosch series. This book is very tightly written, drips with suspense throughout, and rings authentic with modern Los Angeles, complete within the setting of the pandemic, and references to masks, the vaccine, and the difficult circumstances between the police and the public, including references to protests and efforts to defund policing, and how all of this impacts the detective’s work environment. As each chapter ends, I’m immediately drawn into continuing on to the next.
I’m not going to give away any spoilers. We are rapidly drawn into a complex web of multiple murders and serial rapes. The story is complex with multiple characters and victims, all expertly and coherently woven together.
This book is more about Ballard than Bosch, she takes the lead and is really the main character here, Bosch appears in Chapter 8. It took me some time to warm to her as a character in this series, but she is presented masterfully and has really developed as the series has progressed. Her life situation is more realistic now, and she is more likable as a character. Bosch, while he has appropriately aged during the series, is presented in good form, not as the aging and almost decrepit man he was in some of the previous novels. His mind is sharp, he is his usual gritty, rough around the edges self, and he is seamlessly blended into the story as the main supporting cast member.
I downloaded the paired audiobook and listened at the same time as I read the book. This is a great way to read this, and I like that Titus Welliver has again been selected as Bosch’s narrator, whereas Christine Latin does a great job as Ballard. Overall, this book is the best in the Ballard and Bosch series to date, highly recommended!”
