Summary

Summary

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I’ve been a fan of Alafair Burke from the very beginning and, ten books in, she just keeps surprising me.” Michael Connelly
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, New York Times bestselling author of Unseen
“This entry in Burke’s Ellie Hatcher series continues to flesh out the heroine; readers witness her struggling with commitment issues in her personal life and friction with her detective partner, Rogan. There is no lack of suspects, twists, and surprises, and the plot keeps readers guessing until the end. Ellie is a great character with a no-nonsense approach and an (almost) flawless gut instinct.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Has suspected serial killer Anthony Amaro spent eighteen 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, 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…A propulsive thriller.” Publishers Weekly
“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…A satisfying police procedural with added interest from alternating perspectives of detective and attorney.” Library Journal
“The case that convicted serial killer Anthony Amaro was seemingly airtight, complete with eyewitness identification and a confession…This isn’t just another oops-maybe-he’s-not-the-real-killer novel; Burke deftly merges Ellie’s, Carrie’s, and Amaro’s stories into a multifaceted portrait of unconditional love with thriller pacing and plenty of solid investigative detail.” Booklist
“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 Abbot, author of Dare Me
“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
