Summary

From the bestselling author of The Ex and The Wife
*The Girl She Was, available to pre-order now*
‘Highly addictive’ KARIN SLAUGHTER ‘A major talent’ HARLAN COBEN

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 with 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 a serial killer serving a life sentence.

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.

Critic Reviews

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
Critic Reviews

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.

Critic Reviews

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

MICHAEL CONNELLY
Critic Reviews

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.
