See all titles by Michael Connelly.
From #1 New York Times bestselling 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.
Everybody loves Michael Connelly’s series novels. No one compares to Harry Bosch, or the Lincoln Lawyer himself, Micky Haller. Connelly takes a break from his bestselling characters to introduce us to a new one, a young driven LAPD detective, Renée Ballard. She works the night shift in Hollywood, a once up-and-coming detective; she’s got the night shift as punishment for her sexual harassment complaint against a supervisor. One night she catches two cases: the brutal beating of a prostitute left for dead and the killing of a young woman in a nightclub shooting. She works her regular shift by night and in the daylight tries to solve these two cases that trouble her so. Along with BLOOD WORK and VOID MOON, Connelly once again proves that he can bring the depth and excitement he delivers in his series novel to a standalone. But this is probably not a standalone – I am sure we will see more.
