Book Review

Burning Room by MIchael Connelly, $28.00 Little Brown and Company. 2014

Leave it to bestselling author Michael Connelly to come up with a new twist on a murder investigation. Main character Detective Harry Bosch and his rookie partner, Lucia Soto take on an open unsolved shooting case committed nine years earlier when the victim suddenly dies from complications from the bullet lodged in his spine. Evidence is slim to none but the two detectives tackle the open case with renewed vigor. The shooting and murder has big political implications and the community is engaged. The investigation trail leads the two detectives to a fire where several children died. Unravelling the case piece by piece provides an action packed read.  Connelly, a former newspaper reporter, has residences in California and Florida.
