July 2014 Book of the Month.

This novel feels as though you are involved in an actual case; it’s full of clever, clear, concise writing without an annoying overload of background noise. The author knows whats she's talking about, she understands the processes and procedures, the mundane, the misleading; it comes as no surprise to find she is a former prosecutor and now teaches criminal law. The characters are totally believable, there’s no extravagant superhero to save the day, just good old fashioned investigative skills. Is innocence and guilt ever clear cut and simple, Burke sends your thoughts one way and then the other, have you solved it already? NO! This is a real winner, hooking, stimulating and provoking your attention from start to finish. ~ Liz Robinson

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Being the daughter of James Lee Burke, Alafair Burke had a challenging task. Interestingly, she needed no period in which to find her feet; her Samantha Kincaid series hit the ground running, and she immediately established her own writing identity, quirky and idiomatic – though strikingly different from her father. The murder of a psychotherapist throws suspicion on her husband until the district attorney’s office receives an anonymous letter. NYPD detectives Ellie Hatcher and her partner J J Rogan are charged with looking into the connection with a serial killer serving a life sentence.

Synopsis

All Day and a Night by Alafair Burke

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.
