Publisher's Summary

A compelling thriller introducing a driven young detective trying to prove herself in the LAPD.

Renée Ballard works the night shift in Hollywood, beginning many investigations but finishing none as each morning she turns her cases over to day shift detectives. A once up-and-coming detective, she's been given this beat as punishment after filing a sexual harassment complaint against a supervisor. But one night she catches two cases she doesn't want to part with: the brutal beating of a prostitute left for dead in a parking lot and the killing of a young woman in a nightclub shooting.

Ballard is determined not to give up at dawn. Against orders and her own partner's wishes, she works both cases by day while maintaining her shift by night. As the cases entwine, they pull her closer to her own demons and the reason she won't give up her job - no matter what the department throws at her.

    "No messing with this badass heroine."

    The only thing I question is the narrator. She was obviously trying to channel the book's 'cool as' heroine but I found her delivery a tad too monotonous. Still really enjoyed Connelly's modern (on all levels) cop.

    "the usual Connelly brilliance."

    Fear not Connelly fans, Michael has rebooted his detective trope with a new hero. IMHO!! He's always written women well in his books, and this is no different, with a believable, sympathetic, flawed character, sharing with all his hero's a determination to work for justice above all else.
    Trust Connelly to write a female cop better than most female writers.... she seems to have a complex past, which we'll hopefully get to learn more about.
    I've no idea if this is the start of a series, but I certainly hope so.... :)
    Also, a big thumbs up for the subtle handling of a transgender character, how Ballard doggedly refers to the character as 'she', (the transgender character's choice of pronoun) whilst an uncaring system persists with 'he', despite years of gender realignment surgery. It's not made a big thing of, but kudos to Mr Connelly for getting this right!!

    "Brilliant"

    Michael Connelly is a master of balancing suspense and pace, he creates believable and nuanced characters set in what I take to be a gritty recreation of L.A.

    "Gripping story and narration"

    Another expertly written thriller from Michael Connelly. I really felt like the main character was brought to life. I look forward to more books in this series (please let there be more!)

    The narration by Katherine Moennig was superb. It really fit the tone of the book. Once again, Los Angeles is the grim backdrop and the narration really made me feel rooted in the city.

    "I liked!"

    Not read/heard this author before. So a new one for me. However it got me gripped. Better still one you couldn't second guess as to which way it was going. Almost felt pity for the main character with a sadness too.
    Would be interested to see more with this character
