9780062208392: All Day and a Night: A Novel of Suspense (Ellie Hatcher)

In her first series book for Faber, Alafair Burke returns to one of the most memorable characters in contemporary US crime writing, NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher.

When psychotherapist Helen Brunswick is murdered in her Park Slope office, the entire city suspects her estranged husband - until the District Attorney's Office receives an anonymous letter. The letter's author knows a detail that police have kept secret: the victim's bones were broken after she was killed, echoing a signature used twenty years earlier by Anthony Amaro, a serial killer serving a life sentence. Now, Amaro is asking to be released from prison, arguing that he was wrongly convicted, and that the true killer is still on the loose.

Ellie Hatcher and her partner JJ Rogan are tapped as the 'fresh look' team to reassess the original investigation that led to Amaro's conviction. The case pits them against both their fellow officers and a hard-charging celebrity defence lawyer with a young associate named Carrie Blank, who has a personal connection to the case. As both the NYPD and Amaro's legal team search for certainty in years of conflicting evidence, their investigations take them back to Carrie's hometown, and to deadly secrets left behind.

Review:

All Day and a Night is Burke at her finest: razor sharp twists, stunning surprises and artfully drawn characters. The insider's view of criminal prosecution is masterfully wrought and as usual, Burke makes you feel like you're riding along with the detectives in the back of their unmarked car. You won't want to miss this one. ( KARIN SLAUGHTER)

A masterfully plotted, psychologically complex thriller, Alafair Burke's All Day and a Night raises larger questions about the choices we make, the mistakes we can't undo. Whip-smart and emotionally deft, it delivers all the way through its final pages. ( MEGAN ABBOTT)

I've been a fan of Alafair Burke from the very beginning and, ten books in, she just keeps surprising me. ( MICHAEL CONNELLY)

Spring loaded and razor sharp ... Alafair Burke has given us something more gripping than just a crime novel. Her story is about women, their drive, their compassion, and their public and private battles for success and acceptance. ( IVY POCHODA)

The story is packed with surprises and cunning plot twists leading to an explosive finale. ( Irish Independent)

The murder of a psychiatrist has the same MO used by a serial killer 20 years earlier - but that killer is in jail. Detective Ellie Hatcher is on the case in this complex, expertly plotted novel that's hard to put down. ( Woman & Home)

Having a famous novelist parent can only take a writer so far. Being the daughter of James Lee Burke -- possibly the greatest living writer of crime fiction in America -- Alafair Burke had a challenging task, with a crushing load of expectation. Interestingly enough, she needed no period in which to find her feet. (Barry Forshaw Good Book Guide)

A rattling good police procedural ( Shiny News Books)

Book Description Harper Paperbacks, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 204 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A new murder case with ties to a convicted serial killer leads Detective Ellie Hatcher into a twisting investigation with explosive and deadly results in this superb mystery from the terrific web spinner (Entertainment Weekly) Alafair Burke. When psychotherapist Helen Brunswick is murdered in her Park Slope office, the entire city suspects her estranged husband--until the District Attorney s office receives an anonymous letter. The letter s author knows a chilling detail that police have kept secret: the victim s bones were broken after she was killed. Her injuries were eerily similar to the signature used twenty years earlier by Anthony Amaro, a serial killer serving a life sentence for his crimes. Now, Amaro is asking to be released from prison, arguing that he was wrongly convicted, and that the true killer is still on the loose. NYPD Detectives Ellie Hatcher and JJ Rogan are tapped as the fresh look team to reassess the original investigation that led to Amaro s conviction. The case pits them against both their fellow officers and a hard-charging celebrity defense lawyer with a young associate named Carrie Blank, whose older sister was one of Amaro s victims. As the NYPD and Amaro s lawyers search for certainty among conflicting evidence, their investigations take them back to Carrie s hometown, where secrets buried long ago lead to a brutal attack--one that makes it terrifyingly clear that someone has gotten too close to the truth.
