Editorial reviews

Editors Select, July 2017

A new series from Michael Connelly? Sign me up! Renee Ballard works "The Late Show" (i.e., the night shift) and finds it hard to give up "vampire cases" (the ones that need to be worked at night); she knows the investigations will languish for lack of care from the daytime detectives. Connelly fans will delight in the familiar pleasures of his Ballard’s beat: authentic police procedural detail, "ripped from the headlines" intertwined plot lines, and a detective driven as much by personal demons as a hunger for justice. What’s new is a female protagonist, voiced by TV actress Katherine Moennig (pronounced "Mennig" - you may remember her as Jake from The Young Americans.) Fittingly, The Late Show is Moennig’s audiobook debut - listeners are at the start of a series that promises to satisfy for years to come. —Christina, Audible Editor

Publisher's summary

From New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly, a new 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.
