Publisher's Summary

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.

Don't miss Detective Harry Bosch on the case in these Michael Connelly crime fiction novels.

    "Entertaining and intelligent"

    As with all Michael Connelly's novels, this is a well thought out and structured story. For previous readers, the combination of the two previously known detectives adds another layer of interest.

    "Bosch is the Best"

    You know, there are a lot of people out to get Harry Bosch. I guess he kind of asks for it, but I think people don't like him.

    "Good Bosch"
    Would you listen to A Darkness More Than Night again? Why?

    No. I'm trying to make it through all the Bosch books in order.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As with other Bosch books, I like the police "insider" info and his interaction with his partner(s).


    Which character – as performed by Michael Beck – was your favorite?

    Bosch


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It's similar to other Bosch books...a good listen. I like all the readers involved in the Bosch series but think it would be better if the same reader performed all the books.

    "More of the same"

    I think it's just because I first started reading this author's books years ago, but I'm quite weary of the characters and the plots. I fortunately read "The Poet" and "Trunk Music", both of which I found wonderfully written and great fun to read. This book is probably enjoyable to those who haven't read any of these, but I'm just a bit weary of what sounds like the same plot twists carried out by the same characters. The narrator was great.

    "If you like Connelly..."

    I rather liked The Poet but Conelly's books have left me rather cold since then - there's something ersatz about everything - the characters, their problems, the dialogue - most of all the overly contrived prose and plotting. If he's trying for modern day Chandler, he's not making it. For those who like his stuff, I have nothing against the audiobook - it's very well read: it's the underlying book I found tedious
