Publisher's Summary

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.

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

    "Great story - poor narration"
    What made the experience of listening to A Darkness More than Night: Harry Bosch Series, Book 7 the most enjoyable?

    Engaging story! I enjoyed Mr. Connelly's plot twist of making Harry the suspect. However, Mr. Davidson's narration left me cold. It was very hard to listen to, particularly after listening to Dick Hill's excellent work on the prior books. Midway throught the story, I was ready to check the book out of the library to finish the book! I hope the next book is an improvement.

    "Good story but not his best"

    The story was good but it didn't keep me on the edge of my seat. I love Harry Bosch. He is a great character. I was disappointed by the way this reader portrayed him. He gave me the impression that Harry was this gruff, unfeeling cop. I've always felt Harry was very private, quiet and even a bit shy in certain situations. That is what gives him his charm. He is sensitive and kind and is always determined to get the bad guy. I will continue to read Michael Connelly. He is one of my favorite authors. This book just wasn't his best. I really think Richard Davidson ruined it for me. I may have had a different opinion if I had read it myself.

    Story
    "Another great book for Michael Connelly."

    Another powerful book from Michael Connelly up there with his best. Really enjoyable. This book pairs two of Michael Connelly detectives from previous books Terry McCaleb and Bosch. I have never read a Terry McCaleb book before and quite enjoyed his character in this book, the Bosch character was great, but took a bit of a back seat to Terry in this book.

    This book has plenty of twists and turns and stays a bit more believable than most of Mr Connolly's books. I think this is a must listen for Michael Connelly fans, but I would suggest listening to the early books in the Bosch series first.

    The Narrator was a bit of a mixed bag, I almost skipped this book based on some of the reviews in relation to this narrator, however the book is so good I am so glad I took the gamble. After listening to other Narrators in the Bosch series, he initially sounded all wrong and grated on me for the first hour or so, then I got used to him. I found the Narrator's performance of Bosch very irritating at first, the narrator makes Bosch sound as if he is 70.

    However after the first hour or so the irritations went away and I started to enjoy the narrator's ability to help build the suspense and his more precise pronunciation in places. He will never be my favourite Narrator but I don't think it is worth skipping this book based on his narration.

    Story
    "Old, old Bosch"

    Plot paired with history&science about real H Bosch is interesting, but characters are very shallow. Especially Graciela, who would protect her husband from everything, even from doing his job and having fun (hey, some people might have fun to work as investigaters).

    To make it worse, the narrator completely reversed the age of people. The voice of Bosch is like the oldest man in the Universe. Tired. Me too.
