Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling 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.

I hope The Late Show is the first in a series

If you like the Bosch books, chances are you'll like The Late Show!! The lead female character is flawed, like Bosch. The narrator was just ok! The story grabbed my attention right away. I would have given it 5 stars, but the ending was choppy and a little abrupt. I had to replay a section to "transition" to the end. Michael Connelly, if you're reading this please start writing Book 2!

Oh, the narration!

Katherine Moennig is a terrific actress. She does a great turn on Ray Donovan. Maybe my favorite character on that show. But this narration isn't good. It's disappointing. She just reads it and reads it fast. I wish she had listened to a few audiobooks ahead of time to see how its done. Such a good voice, such a good actress, this should be better.

As far as the story goes, it's hard to tell. Couldn't get past the narration.
