Description

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.

        "The strength of the novel is its complexity: The characters are variegated, textured, operating out of a range of motivations, personal and otherwise." — Los Angeles Times

        "If it was me on the slab at the coroner's office I would want Ellie Hatcher on the case. Burke's detective is one of the best in the business and this take on New York City could only come from a writer who knows its darkness and light so well." — Michael Connelly, author of The Burning Room

        "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, author of Unseen

        "Compulsively readable." — O, the Oprah Magazine

        "Compelling....Burke's talent as a writer continues to grow along with Ellie's character. Although this is the fifth book in the Ellie Hatcher series, there isn't a better starting point than All Day and a Night, which will keep the reader up all night." — Associated Press

        "This is a book that you cannot and will not be able to be put down. An intricate puzzle, this mystery is so well written that the culprit is impossible to figure out. A definite keeper!" — Suspense magazine

        "Perfect for Law & Order freaks who want some ripped-from-the-headlines intrigue with their beachside mai tais." — New York Post

        "Spring loaded and razor sharp, All Day and a Night is a surprising and compelling thriller. But 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, author of Visitation Street

        "Alafair Burke is as good as any living writer at capturing what crime is like in New York City." — Pittsburgh Tribune

        "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, author of Dare Me

        "Gripping...a propulsive thriller." — Publishers Weekly

        "A satisfying police procedural with added interest from alternating perspectives of detective and attorney. For fans of Lisa Gardner and Tess Gerritsen, and readers who enjoy tough female police officer protagonists and complex plots." — Library Journal

        "Addictive." — Tampa Bay Times

        Has suspected serial killer Anthony Amaro spent 18 years in New York’s Five Points Correctional Facility for a murder he didn’t commit? In Burke’s gripping fifth novel of suspense featuring NYPD Det. Ellie Hatcher (after 2012’s Never Tell), Ellie must suss that out in the wake of a fresh slaying in Brooklyn with the same signature, for which Amaro has an ironclad alibi. She must also consider the evidence against Amaro in five earlier murders in his hometown of Utica, N.Y., for which he was never prosecuted. That Ellie has recently moved in with the guy calling the shots, ADA Max Donovan, complicates matters, as does Carrie Blank, the associate of the lawyer handling Amaro’s wrongful-conviction claim, being the half-sister of one of the Utica victims. Burke sets the equally driven Ellie and Carrie on a collision course in a propulsive thriller marred only by the plot’s overreliance on coincidence.

        The shocking murder of psychotherapist Helen Brunswick complicates an old case, as NYPD detective Ellie Hatcher and attorney Carrie Blank both search for the truth from opposite sides of the law. When similarities between Helen's murder and those of past serial killer victims come to light and an anonymous letter with inside information about Helen's case that might exonerate the convicted killer arrives, the police are forced to reevaluate the previous cases. While Ellie is assigned to the "fresh look" team, Carrie goes to work for a celebrity lawyer specializing in wrongful convictions and representing Anthony Amaro, the man imprisoned for the murders. She is enticed by the idea of discovering the truth, because her half sister was one of the original victims. As the cops and lawyers navigate new evidence and old confessions, they uncover dark secrets kept hidden for decades. This is the fifth book in the Ellie Hatcher series (after Never Tell), and familiarity with previous entries is helpful but not necessary. VERDICT A satisfying police procedural with added interest from alternating perspectives of detective and attorney. For fans of Lisa Gardner and Tess Gerritsen, and readers who enjoy tough female police officer protagonists and complex plots. [See Prepub Alert, 1/6/14.]--Emily Byers, Tillamook Cty. Lib., OR
