About the Book

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.

    Alafair Burke's books include the standalone thrillers Long Gone and If You Were Here - an Amazon Best Mystery Novel of 2013 - and her acclaimed series starring NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher, the most recent of which, Never Tell, was a Kindle bestseller. A former Deputy District Attorney in Portland, Oregon, Alafair is now a Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School, where she teaches criminal law and procedure.

“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
