A former newspaper reporter who worked the crime beat at the Los Angeles Times and the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Connelly has won numerous awards for his journalism and his fiction.

In the run up to MURDER ONE Ireland’s International Crime Writing Festival, Michael discusses his career and latest bestseller Dark Sacred Night in which LAPD Detective Renée Ballard teams up with the legendary Harry Bosch with UNESCO City of Literature Writer in Residence, award winning crime writer, Declan Burke.

About Dark Sacred Night

Renée Ballard is working the night beat again, and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours only to find a stranger rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is retired detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin. Ballard kicks him out, but then checks into the case herself and it brings a deep tug of empathy and anger.

Bosch is investigating the death of fifteen-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally murdered and her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now, Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy and finally bring her killer to justice. Pick up your copy here!

Books will be available for sale on the night for anyone who would like to get theirs personally signed.
