Product Description

Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch is up to his neck in a case that has transfixed all of celebrity-mad Los Angeles: a movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. Bosch is both the arresting officer and the star witness in a trial that has brought the Hollywood media pack out in full-throated frenzy.

Meanwhile, Terry McCaleb is enjoying an idyllic retirement on Catalina Island when a visit from an old colleague brings his former world rushing back. It's a murder, the unreadable kind of murder he specialized in solving back in his FBI days. The investigation has stalled, and the sheriff's office is asking McCaleb to take a quick look at the murder book to see if he turns up something they've missed.

McCaleb's first reading of the crime scene leads him to look for a methodical killer with a taste for rituals and revenge. As his quick look accelerates into a full-sprint investigation, the two crimes - his murdered loner and Bosch's movie director - begin to overlap strangely. With one unsettling revelation after another, they merge, becoming one impossible, terrifying case, involving almost inconceivable calculation. McCaleb believes he has unmasked the most frightening killer ever to cross his sights. But his investigation tangles with Bosch's lines, and the two men find themselves at odds in the most dangerous investigation of their lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of All Worlds 13 Dec 2003
Format:Paperback
This is a celebration of Connelly's work so far. He has managed to tie in characters from all his other books. Terry McCaleb from Blood Work, Harry Bosch, the protagonist of 6 other books and Jack McEvoy from The Poet. He makes mention of the incident from which he was serving a suspension in The Last Coyote. Not only that, the assistant prosecuting attorney in the ongoing court case makes a reappearance after being introduced in Angel's Flight. Just for fun, see if you can spot the passing reference to a character in Connelly's other stand alone book, Void Moon.
On top of everything else, Michael Connelly delivers yet another powerful thriller, combining McCaleb's profiling skills with the dark figure of Harry Bosch. Two stories are intertwined as Bosch is involved with a high profile court case, and McCaleb investigates a murder. I feel we're treated to the best of all worlds through the combination of all of Connelly's main protagonists.
If you're a dyed-in-the-wool Michael Connelly fan, this book will bring back fond memories of his previous works. If it's the first Michael Connelly book you've read, I think you'll find your curiosity sufficiently aroused to go back and read the earlier stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another best-seller from Michael Connelly 15 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
How cleverly Michael Connelly has brought together his 2 most memorable heroes - Harry Bosch and Terry McCaleb, in this exciting thriller.
Although the plot is uncovered fairly early on, the tense court-room action and the brilliant characterisation of the central characters make this another 'page-turner' right up until the very end.
I would definitely recommend this book to all fans of Connelly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable if unsurprising thriller 2 Feb 2003
By CJ TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Michael Connelly brings together Terry McCaleb and Harry Bosch in A Darkness More Than Night and it works really well.
McCaleb, now retired on a small island with his wife and family, still finds it difficult to leave his FBI profilign days behind and becomes embroiled in a murder case in which Detective Harry Bosch of the LAPD quickly becomes a prime suspect. Hard though this is to believe for McCaleb, the evidence begins to mount up, and McCaleb and Sheriff's Deputy Jaye Winston (another returning character) begin to close in on Bosch.
Bosch, meanwhile, is the chief witness in a high profile murder case against a top Hollywood director. As McCaleb begins to intrude into this, Bosch has to juggle trying to prove his innocence with ensuring that the accused in his own case is put away.
Connelly carries off the coming together of his two chief characters well, making their mutual respect obvious whilst keeping them detached enough that their is friction there. As well as McCaleb and Bosch there is also a cameo for Jack McEvoy, a reporter who was the central character in Connelly's The Poet (a brilliant serial killer novel, by the way).
So, A Darkness More Than Night is an intriguing and beguiling read that uses the characters well to draw the reader in. However, it suffers from two serious problems that cost it the fifth star: the circumstances in which Bosch becomes a suspect are horribly contrived and unbelievable, and the twists are not as huge as you would hope. It can be fairly predictable, but nonetheless entertaining, stuff.
Naturally, if you love Connelly's work, this is a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Twist on the Serial Killer Genre 13 Jan 2003
By A. Ross TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The only book I'd read in the Harry Bosch series before this was City of Bones, and I have to say this is a fair amount better. At first, I didn't even realize it was a Harry Bosch book. It starts with the bizarro ritualistic murder of a sad case loner, which brings an ex-FBI profiler Terry McCaleb into the picture. Just as I was about to sigh and groan at yet another FBI profiler vs. serial killer story (ever since Red Dragon/Manhunter and Silence of the Lambs, why does anyone bother?), the case starts bumping into LAPD Det. Harry Bosch.
Bosch is the key witness in the murder trial of a big-time Hollywood director, who is accused of having strangled a nobody actress while having sex. While the sensationalist aspect of the case and trial are pretty cliché, the details of the courtroom ebb and flow of the trial are quite interesting and well done. Intermingled with the court case, and its various last minute complications, is Terry McCaleb's off-the-record investigation of the ritual killing. His personal life gets a little cheezy as well, as he's started a new life with a younger wife and tiny daughter on a transplanted heart, but can't resist the lure of an interesting case.
Saying any more about how McCaleb's case and Bosch's trial are connected might tip the plot away, but suffice to say there's a good twist or two and some deep dark secrets that come to light. I don't know if some of them relate to previous books in the series, but one might want to read them in order to avoid spoiling anything.

4.0 out of 5 stars McCaleb meets Bosch again 16 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Michael Connelly succeeds in his ambitious goal of putting Terry McCaleb (from "Blood Work") alongside Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch (the normal hero). There are also (unnecessary?) cameo appearances from Jack McEvoy (from "The Poet") and Thelma Kibble (from "Void Moon"). There were occasions early in the story when I wondered if Connelly had hired a ghost writer, but thereafter the narrative flowed smoothly and the plot developed well. Not Connelly's best - he has set himself very high standards! - but thorougly enjoyable nonetheless.
