"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."--… (mer)

Renée Ballard is a detective with the LAPD, who has been relegated to working the ‘late show’ (i.e., the 11pm-7am shift) after her harassment complaint against a senior officer was dismissed. Yet, she is a very good detective. On the first shift when she is introduced, there is a transgender nearly beaten to death, a club shooting with five dead, including two workers in the bar, and a robbery. Usually, Renée and her partner Jenkins write up the cases at the end of their shift, and the day crews work the cases. However, Renée really works the three cases herself, especially wanting to capture the evil predator, who almost killed the transgender, and gets too close. Meanwhile, she is repeatedly warned off the club shooting, which is being run by the senior officer who harassed her, yet she is able to make key inroads in that case, with a number of motivations. Renée is a strong and moral character, with an unusual lifestyle and Connelly's pacing is terrific in this one. ( )

This is the first Michael Connelly book I've read. People I know have extolled the Bosch books for years, but I couldn't get into them, and I thought maybe this would be the one.

The plot is solid, but the characters are not fleshed out. Renee Ballard is a cardboard cutout. Why is she living on the beach like a homeless person? Does she have to? Does she like it?

Plot is vital, but the characters who populate the story are important, too. Most of these were just placeholders. ( )

This is the 1st of the Renee Ballard novels.
But I had watched Bosch on Amazon and imagined her to be older.

Anyway Detective Ballard works the late shift for LAPD
She has a part time Partner called Jenkins but they don't always work the same hours.
They are called to a shooting in a nightclub 5 people die. Ballard tries to save the waitress.
She hands this investigation over but digs a bit herself.
She is also investigating the brutal attack on a transvestite Prostitute she slowly but surely uncovers the culprit a used car salesman. He grabs Ballard and takes her to his house he drugs her and also kidnaps his ex wife. He plans to kill them both but Ballard attacks him first.

Ballard has made enemies of higher ranking Policemen but she feels she needs to investigate the Nightclub shooting when her ex partner Chastain is killed at his home.
She finds in the evidence bag belonging to the waitress a note and a bit of metal button she follows up calls a forensic lab technician the metal button is actually from a Policeman's Shoulder harness. She gets the finger print ID and along with the help of her Boss who she doesn't like, they eventually charge the Dirty Cop with the Night club shootings.

OK book this good introduction to the characters. ( )

I love Ballard. She's a realistic, strong, intelligent female lead. I will definitely be reading more of this series. The storyline kept my attention. The mystery and suspense came through perfectly. No one felt like a caricature. It was all real 3D, my kind of book. ( )
