Publisher's Summary

A new murder case with ties to a convicted serial killer leads Detective Ellie Hatcher into a twisting investigation with explosive and deadly results in this superb mystery from the "terrific web spinner" (Entertainment Weekly) Alafair Burke.
When psychotherapist Helen Brunswick is murdered in her Park Slope office, the entire city suspects her estranged husband - until the District Attorney's office receives an anonymous letter. The letter's author knows a chilling detail that police have kept secret: The victim's bones were broken after she was killed. Her injuries were eerily similar to the signature used 20 years earlier by Anthony Amaro, a serial killer serving a life sentence for his crimes. Now, Amaro is asking to be released from prison, arguing that he was wrongly convicted, and that the true killer is still on the loose.
NYPD Detectives Ellie Hatcher and J. J. Rogan are tapped as the "fresh look" team to reassess the original investigation that led to Amaro's conviction. The case pits them against both their fellow officers and a hard-charging celebrity defense lawyer with a young associate named Carrie Blank, whose older sister was one of Amaro's victims. As both the NYPD and Amaro's legal team search for certainty in years of conflicting evidence, their investigations take them back to Carrie's hometown and secrets left behind there. And when Carrie falls victim to a brutal attack, Hatcher knows that the young attorney got too close to the truth.

terrible narrator

What disappointed you about All Day and a Night?

so far, there's only been a couple of books, I've been unable to finish, and this is one of them. Not because the book was badly written, in fact is was probably quite good, but because the narration - I call it that over performance - was so bad. Her voice grated on me; her emphasis was all in the wrong places and she sounded like a 15 year old that was attempting to read a book to her young siblings. What a pity, Alafair! I have enjoyed all of your books to date and previous performers have all been fine. Why on earth did you change narrators.


What other book might you compare All Day and a Night to and why?

Sorry, I found it impossible to concentrate on the story due this awful narration that I only got 1/3 into it before I gave it away completely.


Would you be willing to try another one of Andi Arndt’s performances?

NO, emphatically.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from All Day and a Night?

Don't know, didn't finish it



Any additional comments?

If you're like me and require a good performance to enjoy a book; don't buy this !
