The Last Bookstore is pleased to present #1 Bestselling Author Michael Connelly and his new book, THE LATE SHOW, featuring his brand new character, LAPD Detective Renée Ballard.
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 own 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.
Michael Connelly is the author of twenty-nine previous novels, including the #1 New York Times bestsellers The Wrong Side of Goodbye and The Crossing.

Connelly is a former newspaper reporter who has won numerous awards for his journalism and his novels and is the executive producer of Bosch, starring Titus Welliver.
