A compelling thriller introducing a driven young detective trying to prove herself in the LAPD.
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.

a young female Harry Bosch

This is a must for all Harry Bosch and Connelly fans but to my taste, it was too similar to the Harry Bosch novels. The detective is overworked, single, has had a strange childhood, was harassed, I would have liked someone different.
A good read, a lot of details, there is thrilling action and interesting secrets are uncovered. Still, some of the characters seem very bland and not very likable, not even the main protagonist. May be I am so tuned into Harry that to like Renee it takes more time.

Eher langweilig

Sprecherin gleichförmig und emotionslos, Geschichte plätschert so dahin, nach dem Motto "Tage im Leben eines cops"
