Description

A compelling 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.

Please don't narrate anymore books!!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Great story, very boring narrator! Does the author have control over the narrator of their novels?? I couldn't tell whether it was a female or male narrator - which wasn't a big deal - but she sounded totally bored and it was often very difficult to distinguish between different characters.

Would you be willing to try another one of Katherine Moennig’s performances?

Probably not.

Great story but very poor reading

The story is great, as expected by Michael Connelly. Unfortunately the audio version is marred by truly awful reading. The cadence in the reader’s voice is a consistently short sequence of fast-up loud-down-softer, and is unrelated to the content or the intended syntax. The effect on listeners is like water torture.

Angry auntie reading

I love Michael Connelly but Moennig’s characters all sound the same-competent, brisk and boring.

The narrator murdered this audio version

Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or Katherine Moennig?

Let me say I LOVE Michael Connelly and I am a real Harry Bosch fan, but I could not
get in to the book at all due to the terrible vocal performance and the fast pace at which she spoke. I honestly felt giddy and sick trying to pay attention and concentrate.

I would ask the producers to take a look at the production, as it's possible the voice has been sped up or not "produced well" in the studio.

I am going to try the paper version, but would recommend you stay away from the audio version... or try a sample first.

Has The Late Show turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Boring, monotone voice, one of the worst vocal performances I've ever heard. Spoke way too quickly and had POOR enunciation.

Was The Late Show worth the listening time?

NO way. A complete waste.

Any additional comments?

The audio talent does not give justice to the magnificent Michael Connelly!

Wonderful

For Micheal Connelly fans this is a no- brainer. Just use your credit for it. This book is as good as any in the Harry Bouch series.

This is gripping thriller though it can get classified as a police procedural. It has all the twist and turns which keep surprising you. The sub plots ensure that there is not one single minute when you are not gripped by the narrative. Wow. it was an awesome ride!

Horrible narration

I’m a big fan of Connelly’s work and think highly of him. So imagine my surprise that they allowed this person to narrate. I’m sure the story alone would have been great if I could bare to finish listening to it. But 2 minutes in and I had to stop. What a horrible narration. Please do not narrate anymore, Ms. Moennig. I want my money back! 👎🏼

a young female Harry Bosch

This is a must for all Harry Bosch and Connelly fans but to my taste, it was too similar to the Harry Bosch novels. The detective is overworked, single, has had a strange childhood, was harassed, I would have liked someone different.
A good read, a lot of details, there is thrilling action and interesting secrets are uncovered. Still, some of the characters seem very bland and not very likable, not even the main protagonist. May be I am so tuned into Harry that to like Renee it takes more time.

Sprecherin hilft nicht...

...die einzelnen Ebenen der Geschichte auseinanderhalten zu koennen. Gleichfoermig und emotionslos. Geschichte ok, aber bisserl zu konstruiert. Charakter hat keine Faszinationskomponente wie Harry Bosch.

Eher langweilig

Sprecherin gleichförmig und emotionslos, Geschichte plätschert so dahin, nach dem Motto "Tage im Leben eines cops"

Spannend von Anfang bis Ende!

Ein weiterer fesselnder Roman von Michael Connelly mit einem teils erwarteten Ende, das auf den letzten Metern dann aber doch noch einen völlig unerwarteten Haken schlägt. Durchgehender Lesespass garantiert! Immer wieder auch interessant zu lesen wie die einzelnen Divisions der Polizei von LA miteinander, oftmals aber auch gegeneinander arbeiten

Well done

This is my first Connelly book and won't be my last. The characters were interesting and the crime-solving done so that it was suspenseful to listen to. The reader is easy to listen to.

Ich konnte mich mit der Geschichte nicht so ...

... anfreunden, wie ich es mit den Stories rund um Bosch oder Haller konnte. Die Protagonistin agiert zwar irgendwie ähnlich aber die Story ist etwas an den Haaren herbeigezogen und teils ziemlich vorhersagbar.

Die Protagonistin ist eine Kommissarin, die nach einem Belästigungsvorwurf gegen einen hohen Polizei-Offizier in der Nachtschicht der Kriminalpolizei strafversetzt wurde und nun nur noch Nachts Verbrechen aufnehmen durfte um sie dann am nächsten Morgen den Ermittlungsteams zu übergeben.

Nach drei großen Problemen in einer Nacht fing sie aber selbst an zu ermitteln. Der erste Fall der Nacht, ließ sich lächerlich leicht lösen, weil der Täter seine eigene Adresse auf dem silbernen Tablett servierte. Der zweite Fall, eine Körperverletzung wird dann richtig düster, es gibt eine Entführung mit viel "ich quäle Dich zu Tode" Gewürz.

Aber auch noch der letzte Fall, bei dem etliche Menschen in einem Club zu Tode kamen bleibt nicht verschont, obschon gleich zwei Task Forces an der Sache arbeiten.

Wäre nicht der erstklassische Erzählstil des Autors wären es nur 3 Sterne gewesen. Die Sprecherin war ok.
