It took me a while to get in step with Michael Connelly's new character, Renee Ballard, but as he revealed more and more of her inner self, I began to see the similarities with our old friend, Harry Bosch. Harry is intense and unrelenting, as is Ballard, and she has a fierceness about her that Bosch fans will enjoy. Like Harry, she's willing to go the extra mile for a victim: "Everybody Counts or Nobody Counts." I'm looking forward to Ballard and Bosch crossing paths eventually.
