The Late Show Book Summary

Introducing Ren?e Ballard, a fierce young detective fighting to prove herself on the LAPD's toughest beat, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.

Ren?e Ballard works the night shift in Hollywood--also known as the Late Show--beginning many investigations but finishing none, as each morning she turns everything over to the day shift. 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 assignments 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 partner's wishes, she works both cases by day while maintaining her shift by night. As the investigations 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.

The Late Show - Michael Connelly Reviews

  • Well Worth It

    By CWWGK
    Longtime Michael Connelly fan, having read all his previous works. While I wouldn't say this is my favorite, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Look no further if you're searching for a good murder mystery.
  • A good read

    By Bill1369
    I buy Connolly's books without bothering with reading any reviews - there aren't any crime novels any better than Harry Bosch and, lately, Mickey Haller. But neither are represented in this latest by Connolly. That is not to say this isn't a good read - it is and I give it 5-stars. But it is not in the class of the best Bosch books.
  • Great new Character
