Product description

Review

Narrator Katherine Moennig's delivery perfectly complements Ballard's caginess. Moennig maintains a bit of distance from the listener and rarely engages emotionally, making us all the more curious about what makes Ballard tick. Moennig effectively captures the brusque officialdom of police work...This seamless blend of protagonist and narrator will leave listeners looking for the next installment.

-- "AudioFile"

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.

-- "New York Times"

Writing about the instantly appealing police Detective Renee Ballard also recharges Connelly, who has never been in better form.

-- "Chicago Tribune"

The most intriguing mystery in The Late Show, though, 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.

-- "Tampa Bay Times"

A hard-hitting police procedural that captures the imagination from page one.

-- "RT Book Reviews (4 stars)"

Book Description

First there was Harry Bosch. Then Mickey Haller changed the legal thriller. Now, meet Michael Connelly's brand new detective: Renee Ballard.
