Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In A Darkness More than Night, Michael Connelly brings together in a clash of values Terry McCaleb, the semi-retired profiler of Blood Work and Harry Bosch, the burned-out LAPD veteran who most recently appeared in Angels Flight. McCaleb is called in unofficially when someone hog-ties acquitted rapist and murderer Gunn and leaves him to strangle himself, and he soon finds everything from the way Gunn died to the plastic owl left watching the corpse pointing him solidly in one direction. Meanwhile Bosch is orchestrating a high-profile case against a Hollywood producer with a taste for strangling his mistresses and a security adviser whose dislike of Bosch goes back a very long way... This is an ingenious thriller which is also a powerful parable about justice and just how far it is possible to go in pursuit of it; Connelly is as intelligent about human motivation and the misunderstandings that destroy friendship as he is about forensics, art history and the mechanics of prosecution. By bringing together two series characters, he ensures that we care passionately about the outcome of his puzzle and his argument; we have a lot invested in who is right, and who is innocent. --Roz Kaveney

Review

Michael Connelly has created a range of memorable cops and robbers, any one who could sustain a series ... This book is ingenious, original and - with every beat of its procedural heart - authentic (LITERARY REVIEW)

A DARKNESS MORE THAN NIGHT ... has the authentic Connelly touches - crisp dialogue, masterly pacing and his familiar preoccupation with the battle against evil - and it makes gripping reading (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Another gripping, well-written thriller. At times gut-wrenchingly scary, at times maddeningly cryptic, he keeps you enthralled to the last page (DAILY MAIL)

There's no doubt that when it comes to crime writing Connelly is right on top of the heap: impelled by a ferociously powerful narrative drive, his books grip with the prehensile strength of a mole wrench ... far better than its rivals, with a brilliantly organised plot and a genuinely exciting ending (EVENING STANDARD)

The plot rattles along in fifth gear, with upsets galore on every page. A thrilling, challenging read, as one has come to expect from Connelly (GUARDIAN)

A richly plotted and complex novel ... The resolution is brilliantly worked out ... and, as is usual with this author, there is a coda that brings more surprises. A rich and satisfying read, this, and one that throws light on the dark underbelly of human behaviour (IRISH TIMES)

Connelly writes with a controlled fury that jumps right off the page. This is sublime stuff (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

Connelly's many fans are in for a treat because his latest novel features his unorthodox streetwise cop Harry Bosch and brilliant psychological profiler Terry McCaleb ... Sharply original and unfailingly gripping (MAIL ON SUNDAY)
