A pulse-pounding thriller, introducing a driven, young detective trying to prove herself in the LAPD.

Includes an extract of Two Kinds of Truth, the new Harry Bosch novel to be published in November 2017.

Los Angeles can be a dangerous city never more so than in the dead of night.

Renee Ballard works the night shift at the LAPD 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.

  • A new character from Connelly?

    by on

    A new character from Michael Connelly, but not really. A dedicated, even obsessed, female LAPD detective dumped from a prime posting to a much lesser one as punishment for upsetting a senior officer, a continuing battle with other senior officers who are all morons, an indolent partner, an occasional one-night stand, a couple of loosely connected plots designed to pad out the book to a reasonable size and what do you have? – Harry Bosch in drag - and all told in the familiar wooden Connelly style sounding more like police report than a novel, but thousands keep buying his books so why change? As an aside, there’s a (very) minor character called Professor Higgs – given that there is a real Professor Higgs who is a Nobel laureate, that’s a bit lame.
