PRAISE FOR THE LATE SHOW
Late Show introduces a terrific female character: Detective Renée 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
"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."—Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times
Renée 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
writers can capture the gritty streets of L.A.-and the inner workings of the
LAPD-like Connelly."—Entertainment Weekly
a sharp move that allows him to shift his perspective in fresh and meaningful
ways. Writing about the instantly appealing police Detective Renee Ballard also
recharges Connelly, who has never been in better form."—Lloyd Sachs, Chicago Tribune
is a force that with just one novel will easily be as beloved. There's no doubt
Connelly is a master of crime fiction, and The Late Show cements that
reputation."—Jeff Ayers, Associated Press
PRAISE FOR MICHAEL CONNELLY:
"Michael Connelly is an undisputed master."—Chuck Leddy
"Any new book by Michael Connelly is a cause for celebration."—Jackie Cooper, Huffington Post
"A masterpiece."—Steve Forbes, FORBES
Renée Ballard to the City of Angels' crime fighting pantheon. . . Connelly
excels at writing principled outsiders, and Renée Ballard hews to this
archetype."—Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times
"More perhaps than any of Connelly's much-honored other titles, this one reveals why his procedurals are the most soulful in the business: because he finds the soul in the smallest details, faithfully executed."—Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
