Publisher's Summary

A compelling 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.

Wonderful

For Micheal Connelly fans this is a no- brainer. Just use your credit for it. This book is as good as any in the Harry Bouch series.

This is gripping thriller though it can get classified as a police procedural. It has all the twist and turns which keep surprising you. The sub plots ensure that there is not one single minute when you are not gripped by the narrative. Wow. it was an awesome ride!

Dreadful narrator

I imagine the story will be good but am only at chapter 14 so far as...
Struggling to cope with terrible narrator, who's breathless and dull voice is really so annoying. I'll have to finish book cos it's a Michael Connelly but won't listen again if same reader, ruining flow of story and my ability to concentrate.

A new detective

Renee Ballard is the new detective on the block. She is tough, vulnerable, misunderstood and stubborn.....sometimes to her own detriment. I liked this book and will listen to the next one as her character develops through the series. I have not given the book 5 stars as I do think some more character development is necessary to reach the usual Connelly heights. Nevertheless it was an enjoyable listen with an interesting story.
