The Burning Room by Michael Connelly

The Burning Room (Harry Bosch, #19)The Burning Room by Michael Connelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Of course I like to give every Harry Bosch novel five stars, but this story was good, but not as good as some others. An interesting twist in that one cold case was never solved, but the victim lived for ten more years. When he did die, they recovered the bullet from his spine, which they could not do previously. Meanwhile Harry and his new, young partner were working another cold case "on the side" which involved a fire where nine people including children had died. In the end Harry is suspended from duty for some minor infraction and you have to wonder if it was all a set up. Will Harry be back?

Rush Home Road by Lori Lansens

Rush Home RoadRush Home Road by Lori Lansens
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A beautiful first novel for Ms. Lansens. The story starts with heartbreaking episode where a toddler baby girl is abused by her too young mother. You might think that the story is not for you at this point, but read on. Its a lovely story which moves between the present and the past of Addy, a lady who had a very hard life but seemingly took it all in stride.
