"The new Ballard & Bosch thriller"-Front cover.
Detective Renée Ballard is working the graveyard shift again, and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours only to find that an older man has snuck in and is rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is none other than legendary LAPD detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin. Ballard kicks him out, but eventually Bosch persuades her to help and she relents. Bosch is investigating the death of 15-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway who was brutally murdered. He crossed paths with her devastated mother while working a previous case, and Daisy's story has seized hold of him.

A fast paced thriller that takes the reader into the dark side of Los Angeles. The lead characters Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch are well written and well developed throughout the novel. The main case investigated in the novel is the murder of a prostitute which haunts Harry Bosch but there are also other cases which are followed in the novel. I look forward to reading more Ballard and Bosch novels.
