"Fleeing the mobsters he has double crossed, Harry Fabian runs through a virtual obstacle course of London's back streets and alleys during a night in which the shadows seem to grow darker with his every footstep. The night itself seems to be his stalker, its shadows enveloping him like a closing coffin lid."So begins "The Shadows of Film Noir," Brian W. Fairbanks' perceptive analysis of the genre, one of the highlights of a collection that also includes knowledgable profiles of film giants like John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Richard Widmark and even Elliott Gould, as well as a memorable lament for the movie palaces that have fallen victim to the multiplex in our fast food styled culture.THE LATE SHOW: WRITINGS ON FILM celebrates the glory days of cinema in witty prose from a writer with a "real talent for extracting the essence of a given subject and articulating it in a meaningful way."

CRIME NEVER SLEEPS. 'CRIME BOOK OF THE YEAR' Daily Mail ONE OF AMAZON'S BEST MYSTERY/THRILLERS OF THE YEAR * * * * * Detective Renée Ballard works 'The Late Show', the notorious graveyard shift at the LAPD. It's thankless work for a once-promising detective, keeping strange hours in a twilight world of crime. Some nights are worse than others. And tonight is the worst yet. Two shocking cases, hours apart: a brutal assault, and a multiple murder with no suspects. Ballard knows it is always darkest before dawn. But what she doesn't know - yet - is how deep her investigation will take her into the dark heart of her city, the police department and her own past... The Late Show will keep you up all night: it's time to meet Detective Renée Ballard. * * * * * '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 'It has been more than ten years since Connelly, one of the world's greatest crime writers, last launched a major new character. Superb storytelling - this cements Connelly's place at the very top of the crime-writing tree' Daily Mail 'Classy and clever, with a tenacious heroine' Sunday Mirror 'Connelly achieves an enormous amount in these pages: he creates a new character who immediately leaps into life; and controls a complex, fast-paced plot full of surprises' Evening Standard 'The Late Show introduces a terrific female character: Detective Renée Ballard. The pacing is breathless ... Ballard has astonishing resourcefulness and bravery - she is complicated and driven' New York Times 'Although the usual Connelly fingerprints are in evidence here - the real achievement is the creation of his tenacious heroine, Ballard' Guardian 'Ballard is significantly more than a Bosch replacement or clone - an absorbing character on her own terms.
