#1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly introduces Renée Ballard, a fierce young detective fighting to prove herself on the LAPD's toughest beat--the Late Show. Renée Ballard works the night shift in Hollywood, beginning many investigations but finishing none, as each morning she turns everything over to the day shift. 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 assignments 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 partner's wishes, she works both cases by day while maintaining her shift by night. As the investigations 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.

"Fleeing the mobsters he has double crossed, Harry Fabian runs through a virtual obstacle course of London's back streets and alleys during a night in which the shadows seem to grow darker with his every footstep. The night itself seems to be his stalker, its shadows enveloping him like a closing coffin lid."So begins "The Shadows of Film Noir," Brian W. Fairbanks' perceptive analysis of the genre, one of the highlights of a collection that also includes knowledgable profiles of film giants like John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Richard Widmark and even Elliott Gould, as well as a memorable lament for the movie palaces that have fallen victim to the multiplex in our fast food styled culture.THE LATE SHOW: WRITINGS ON FILM celebrates the glory days of cinema in witty prose from a writer with a "real talent for extracting the essence of a given subject and articulating it in a meaningful way."

The Late Show by Michael Connelly | Conversation Starters In “The Late Show”, readers are introduced to a young LAPD detective whose fierce attitude drives her into the thick of things.

Two assignments in the course of her work capture her attention, pulling her deeper into mystery- both personal and professional.
