CRIME NEVER SLEEPS.
'CRIME BOOK OF THE YEAR' Daily Mail

ONE OF AMAZON'S BEST MYSTERY/THRILLERS OF THE YEAR

* * * * *

Detective Renee Ballard works 'The Late Show', the notorious graveyard shift at the LAPD.

It's thankless work for a once-promising detective, keeping strange hours in a twilight world of crime.

Some nights are worse than others. And tonight is the worst yet.

Two shocking cases, hours apart: a brutal assault, and a multiple murder with no suspects.

Ballard knows it is always darkest before dawn. But what she doesn't know - yet - is how deep her investigation will take her into the dark heart of her city, the police department and her own past...

The Late Show will keep you up all night: it's time to meet Detective Renee Ballard.

'The new novel from America's greatest living crime writer is a gripping thrill ride that will entrance you and keep you reading until the small hours' Daily Express

'It has been more than ten years since Connelly, one of the world's greatest crime writers, last launched a major new character. Superb storytelling - this cements Connelly's place at the very top of the crime-writing tree' Daily Mail

'Classy and clever, with a tenacious heroine' Sunday Mirror

'Connelly achieves an enormous amount in these pages: he creates a new character who immediately leaps into life; and controls a complex, fast-paced plot full of surprises' Evening Standard

'The Late Show introduces a terrific female character: Detective Renee Ballard. The pacing is breathless ... Ballard has astonishing resourcefulness and bravery - she is complicated and driven' New York Times

'Although the usual Connelly fingerprints are in evidence here - the real achievement is the creation of his tenacious heroine, Ballard' Guardian

'Ballard is significantly more than a Bosch replacement or clone - an absorbing character on her own terms. Connelly has created yet another potentially iconic tarnished knight of those perennially mean streets' Irish Times

'A characteristically complex tale of murder and police corruption' Mail on Sunday (Thriller of the Week)

'First there was Detective Harry Bosch, then Lincoln lawyer Mickey Haller, and now comes Renee Ballard, ace thriller writer Michael Connelly's first new protagonist in 10 years. A nail-bitingly exciting investigation featuring a finely realised new character from one of America's finest contemporary novelists' Irish Independent

The Late Show introduces a terrific female character . . . The pacing is breathless . . . Connelly expertly hides a trail of bread crumbs that leads straight to the denouement, with so much else going on that it's impossible to see where he's heading New York Times

Michael Connelly studierte und arbeitete zunächst in Florida, wurde für eine seiner Reportagen für den "Pulitzer-Preis" nominiert und war danach einige Jahre Polizeireporter für die "Los Angeles Times". Er wurde mit dem "Edgar Award" ausgezeichnet.

Renée Ballard ist intelligent einsatzfreudig und einfach zu gut für ihren Job! Wenn sie minutiös beschriebene Polizeiarbeit, hohe Spannung und Frauen mit Charakter mögen, willkommen bei der Nachtschicht.
