The Burning RoomThis is a MUST read for any suspense or crime reader.

Almost ready for retirement, Harry Bosch, a good detective, is given a new rookie partner, Lucia Soto, who has good credentials but no experience at the level Bosch has.  As it turns out Soto has a very good mind and proves it with her actions and follow through.  She learned fast and became a huge help to Bosch in solving a cold case that no one else even came close to finding the culprits.  But this cold case led Lucia to a bad killer of a fire in a children’s home in which she had been in at the earlier time.  That fire had killed many children and Soto wanted vengeance to the killers involved.<!–more–>

Many other twists and turns occur that will keep you in this book. I knew when I saw Connelly’s name on a new book that it would delight most all readers.  Please don’t miss this book.  I purchased the paperback copy.
