#Waitlisted with Connelly

Waiting on the new mystery by Michael Connelly?

Warmest December, Waitlisters!

Michael Connelly takes us back to the squad room with this fifth installment in the Renee Ballard series, Desert Star! Connelly keeps us on the edge of our seats while we continue the hunt for this fictionally notorious criminal! With 76 patrons biting their nails in our queue, I’m here to give you a few options to keep you busy while you wait to solve the case of, Desert Star!

LAPD detective Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch work together to hunt the killer who is Bosch’s “white whale”—a man responsible for the murder of an entire family.

A year has passed since LAPD detective Renée Ballard quit the force in the face of misogyny, demoralization, and endless red tape. Harry Bosch has been working a case that haunts him but that he hasn’t been able to crack—the murder of an entire family by a psychopath who still walks free. Ballard makes Bosch an offer: come work with her as a volunteer investigator in the new Open-Unsolved Unit, and he can pursue his “white whale” with the resources of the LAPD behind him.

The two must put aside old resentments to work together again and close in on a dangerous killer. Propulsive and unstoppable, this new novel demonstrates once again why “Connelly is the real deal” (Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review).
