I have read all the Harry Bosch books and find him to be a flawed but dedicated officer. He is what we all are or try to be and that is caring. He has friends as well as those who are not overly found of him. He is what most of us are and that makes him easy to relate too.I have not related to Ballard in the same way. Her character has to be flushed out further. I look forward to the next Bosh and Ballard book.Any one who enjoys action will enjoy Dark Sacred Night.
