Description of this Book

LAPD Detective Ren e Ballard teams up with Harry Bosch in the new work of fiction from #1 NYT bestselling author Michael Connelly. Ren e Ballard is working the night beat again, and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours only to find a stranger rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is retired detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin. Ballard kicks him out, but then checks into the case herself and it brings a deep tug of empathy and anger. Bosch is investigating the death of fifteen-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally murdered and her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now, Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy and finally bring her killer to justice.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Det. Renee Ballard is a formidable character, an insightful and tenacious investigator with an unusual background and a sturdy personality to carry a series... Connelly has achieved success as one of the top mystery writers by continuing to keep his storytelling fresh. In The Late Show, he delivers an exciting police procedural with a unique character. --Oline Cogdill, South Florida Sun-Sentinel The most intriguing mystery in The Late Show is Ballard herself. Connelly is too skillful to hand us her resume in one document dump; instead, he fills out her portrait with a subtle hand over the course of the novel, a little background here, a glimpse of her temperament there, the revelation of her unusual living conditions sketched in between. --Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times Few writers can capture the gritty streets of L.A.--and the inner workings of the LAPD-like Connelly. --Entertainment Weekly Praise for The Late Show: The Late Show introduces a terrific female character: Detective Renee Ballard... The pacing of Ballard's debut story is breathless... Ballard is complicated and driven enough to sustain the series Connelly doubtless has in mind for her. --Janet Maslin, New York Times
