Michael Connelly’s ‘The Late Show’ follows the tale of recently exiled detective Renee Ballard. After filing a sexual assault charge against a supervisor Ballard is assigned to the night shift as punishment. Tiring hours with no hope of actually finishing a case before having to hand it over to the day shift officers. But a case she encounters of a beaten prostitute left for dead and a nightclub shooting that takes the life of a young woman is simply too intriguing for Renee to let go. Against the wishes of her orders and her exasperated partner, she maintains her night shift while continuing her search at dawn. A thrilling murder mystery of a determined detective and how far she’ll go to seek justice- corrupt precinct be damned.
