Publisher's Summary

A new murder case with ties to a convicted serial killer leads Detective Ellie Hatcher into a twisting investigation with explosive and deadly results in this superb mystery from the "terrific web spinner" (Entertainment Weekly) Alafair Burke.

When psychotherapist Helen Brunswick is murdered in her Park Slope office, the entire city suspects her estranged husband - until the District Attorney's office receives an anonymous letter. The letter's author knows a chilling detail that police have kept secret: The victim's bones were broken after she was killed. Her injuries were eerily similar to the signature used 20 years earlier by Anthony Amaro, a serial killer serving a life sentence for his crimes. Now, Amaro is asking to be released from prison, arguing that he was wrongly convicted, and that the true killer is still on the loose.

NYPD Detectives Ellie Hatcher and J. J. Rogan are tapped as the "fresh look" team to reassess the original investigation that led to Amaro's conviction. The case pits them against both their fellow officers and a hard-charging celebrity defense lawyer with a young associate named Carrie Blank, whose older sister was one of Amaro's victims. As both the NYPD and Amaro's legal team search for certainty in years of conflicting evidence, their investigations take them back to Carrie's hometown and secrets left behind there. And when Carrie falls victim to a brutal attack, Hatcher knows that the young attorney got too close to the truth.

    "Races to a satisfying and surprising conclusion"

    I listened on the strength of some book blurbs and now know I have discovered a new author whose works I need to read.
    While it is a police procedural on one level, what makes this a strong story is that it is a crafty interweaving of many stories told in different voices. The author leaves the reader saying of course when all the threads are worked out.
    In my experience it is unique in having so many strong female characters in a police thriller.
    The plot is based on the problem of whether a serial killer was wrongfully convicted. Interestingly the serial killer himself plays only a minor role in the story.

    "terrible narrator"
    What disappointed you about All Day and a Night?

    so far, there's only been a couple of books, I've been unable to finish, and this is one of them. Not because the book was badly written, in fact is was probably quite good, but because the narration - I call it that over performance - was so bad. Her voice grated on me; her emphasis was all in the wrong places and she sounded like a 15 year old that was attempting to read a book to her young siblings. What a pity, Alafair! I have enjoyed all of your books to date and previous performers have all been fine. Why on earth did you change narrators.


    What other book might you compare All Day and a Night to and why?

    Sorry, I found it impossible to concentrate on the story due this awful narration that I only got 1/3 into it before I gave it away completely.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andi Arndt’s performances?

    NO, emphatically.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from All Day and a Night?

    Don't know, didn't finish it



    Any additional comments?

    If you're like me and require a good performance to enjoy a book; don't buy this !

    "Preferred Eliza Foss!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I liked the story but did not care for the new narrator who took over the Ellie Hatcher series following Never Tell.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like all of the characters but the narrator's accents were not done to my satisfaction.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andi Arndt’s performances?

    No


    Do you think All Day and a Night needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Definitely. Ellie Hatcher's career/life is still unfolding.
