In the LAPD’s Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet ten years earlier, Harry Bosch catches a case in which the body is fresh but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent.
Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Starting with the bullet that’s been lodged for years in the victim’s spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveals that this shooting may have been anything but random.
The Burning Room is coming out in hardcover, eBook, and audio formats on November 3 in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and on November 6 in the UK and Ireland.
