Description

Introducing Renee Ballard, a fierce young detective fighting to prove herself on the LAPD's toughest beat, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.

Renee Ballard works the night shift in Hollywood--also known as the Late Show--beginning many investigations but finishing none, as each morning she turns everything over to the day shift. 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 assignments 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 partner's wishes, she works both cases by day while maintaining her shift by night. As the investigations 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.

  • A chick book!

    There is nobody that is a bigger Michael Connelly fan than I am. Love to read his stories and visit LA with him. Very disappointed in this book though. Why? It's a chick book! Dealing with the emotions of Detective Ballard was what this book was about. I had to check the author to make sure it wasn't written by a feminist. And, before you rant on me, I have nothing against feminist, it's just that I don't want to read a book that deal with all those hormones and stupid choices made the the protagonist. The actual story is secondary to Ballard's "feelings". This may be a reason for you to buy this book. This may be a reason for you not to buy this book. As for me, I wish I knew what I'm telling you before I dropped $15 to but this book. Sorry Michael.

    I am a fan of Connelly, and especially Harry Bosch. Now I have another favorite character to follow-Renee Ballard! What a great read. About a 1/4 into the book, I literally couldn't put it down!!! Can't wait for more!
  • As good as Bosch
