"Equally important, what emerges in “The Late Show” is a character whose sense of justice, fairness and determination reflect Connelly’s strengths as a storyteller as much as they do his better-known detective. "

- Los Angeles Times

"The focus of THE LATE SHOW remains entirely on Ballard, and with a sequel in the works, I certainly will not turn down the opportunity to read it. More Connelly is good Connelly."
- Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter.com

"Ballard is tough, smart, relentless and moral to the hilt. Some of the worst villains Connelly has created have been corrupt cops. But there are no worries that Ballard will ever be one of them, rule-breaker though she is."
- Nancy Gilson, Columbus Dispatch

"We hope Connelly gives Ballard more chances to fascinate readers."
- Harry Levins, St. Louis Post Dispatch

"Lovers of US police procedurals will find Connelly's latest protagonist as individual and companionable as his earlier ones."
- Morning Star (UK)

 

"Michael Connelly’s depiction of the adrenaline-fueled nature of detective work is equal parts dangerous, risky and satisfying. Renee Ballard may not be one of the guys, but that works in her favor, and assures her place among the best female characters in contemporary crime fiction."
- KMUW.org

"The new novel from America’s greatest living crime writer is a gripping thrill ride that will entrance you and keep you reading until the small hours."
- Daily Express (UK) 5 star review

"Superb storytelling, with a feisty new character of whom we will hear far more, this cements Connelly’s place at the very top of the crime-writing tree."
- Daily Mail (UK) 

"Fast-paced, gripping and stamped all over with Connelly’s trademark stunning police procedural and authentic forensic detail, this is as close up to the real-life work of a detective you can get as we follow Ballard into the shady corners of sunny California to discover LA’s ‘big evil.’"
- Lancashire Evening Post (UK)

“Connelly achieves an enormous amount in these 400 pages: he creates a new character who immediately leaps into life; controls a complex, fast-paced plot full of surprises; and continues to enhance his career-long portrait of modern LA.”

– Evening Standard (UK)
