Renée Ballard works the night shift in Hollywood, beginning many investigations but finishing none as each morning she turns her cases over to day shift detectives.  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 cases 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 cases 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.

"The Late Show introduces a terrific female character: Detective Renée Ballard... this new star is a beauty."
- New York Times Book Review


THE LATE SHOW


Renée Ballard works the midnight shift in Hollywood, beginning many investigations but finishing few as each morning she turns everything over to the daytime units.  It's a frustrating assignment for a once up-and-coming detective, but it's no accident.  She's been given this beat as punishment after filing a sexual harassment complaint against a supervisor.

But one night Ballard catches two assignments she doesn't want to part with.  First, a prostitute is beaten and left for dead in a parking lot.  All signs point to someone with big evil on his mind.  Then she sees a young waitress breathe her last after being caught in a nightclub shooting.  Against orders, Ballard works both cases by day while maintaining her shift by night.

As the investigations entwine, Ballard is forced to face her own demons and confront a danger she could never have imagined.  To find justice for these victims who can't speak for themselves, she must put not only her career but her life on the line.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
