The Burning Room by Michael Connelly




The Burning Room
by
Michael Connelly

Little Brown and Company
2014
Pages:  400

Cold case detectives, Bosch and Soto in LA are trying to solve a murder that turns out to be politically sensitive even after 20 years.  The victim of a shooting who has had a bullet  lodged for years in the his spine dies and they must pull new leads from years-old evidence, to reveal that the shooting was anything but random.
As their investigation progresses, it leads to another unsolved case with even greater stakes: the deaths of several children in a fire that occurred twenty years ago. But when their work starts to threaten careers and lives, Bosch and Soto must decide whether it is worth risking everything to find the truth, or if it’s safer to let some secrets stay buried.
My Thoughts:  I enjoyed the story - another book in the Harry Bosch story.  Harry is paired with Lucy Soto, a young hot-shot detective, who seems to be a perfect partner for Harry.   The crime scenarios are interesting and the fast-paced work of Bosch and Soto kept me wanting to know how the crimes were going to be solved.  With a twist at the very end.
