Starred Reviews For THE LATE SHOW
"More perhaps than any of Connelly’s much-honored other titles, this one reveals why his procedures are the most soulful in the business: because he finds the soul in the smallest procedural details, faithfully executed.” 
– Kirkus starred review

“Connelly’s special genius has always been his ability to build character like the most literary of novelists while attending to the procedural details of a police investigation with all the focus of an Ed McBain. He does both here, showing us Renée on her surfboard, working out her Bosch-like demons, but also grinding through the minutiae of the case until she achieves that “Holy Grail of detective work,” that moment of knowing she has her man. Many established crime writers have launched new series as their signature heroes age, but few have done it as successfully as Connelly.”
– Booklist starred review

“excellent series launch from bestseller Connelly….What follows is classic Connelly: a master class of LAPD internal politics and culture, good old-fashioned detective work, and state-of-the-art forensic science—plus a protagonist who’s smart, relentless, and reflective. Talking about the perpetrator of the assault, Ballard says, “This is big evil out there.” That’s Connelly’s great theme, and, once again, he delivers.”
– Publishers Weekly starred review

We can't wait to share this book and new character with you. Thank you for your time.
