Publisher's Summary

Booktrack editions are essentially a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment. Music and ambient audio are added to complement and enhance the audiobook experience. It is a synchronized movie-style soundtrack that complements the narration of existing audiobooks; the tempo and rhythm of the score harmonize with action, dialogue and the characters' emotional arcs.

A Darkness More Than Night: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience! 

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch crosses paths with FBI profiler Terry McCaleb in the most dangerous investigation of their lives. 

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. 

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration so that listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

I will take Harry Bosch however I can have him....

I love Michael Connelly and his main character Harry Bosch--and Mickey Haller (who is not in this book). The new guy was not much to me, but the story was great and it was Harry Bosch. And it was a nice long listen. The plot is good and the development was solid. It was not an easy to figure out in the first 2 pages of the book.

REALLY BAD IDEA

If anyone had asked me if I thought that adding background music and background sounds to an audio book would make a better listening experience I might have said that it was worth a try. Now that I have tried to listen to this book I find it so distracting, and annoying that I can't even finish this book. Wow! Please don't do that again. I now know to avoid Booktrack Editions. I never noticed it before, or knew what it meant.

Never disappoints!

If you could sum up A Darkness More Than Night in three words, what would they be?

Exciting thriller with lots of twists and turns.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Darkness More Than Night?

I like when the detectives start to question their friendships, and whether the work they do is starting to bring them closer to the darkness than they ever imagined

What three words best describe Richard Davidson’s performance?

He does a good job but it is hard to listen to his voice for that amount of time. Sorry

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

?

Amazing story and experience!!!

When I first listened to this title, I didn't expect to like it very much, but it quickly proved me wrong. The story itself was amazing but also was on a different level when the music was included in the story. I felt the thrill and suspense, twist and turn of the story as I went along with the book. Please create more of stories like this. I would definitely recommend this to friends to listen to. good job!

worth reading...

Not my favorite, but worth reading. the story itself was good, but it seemed to run on a little. I love all of the established characters; however did not for the voice's interpretation of Harry Bocsh.

Background noise

I cannot stand the background music and sound effects in this book. It's distracting from the story. I know you thought it would add something special, and in fact, if you would have asked me before I started, I would have agreed. Please don't do it anymore.

Good story, horrible performance

Continuous annoying sound effects and music. Never seen an Audible book like it. Phones ringing, water lapping, gun shots, sirens ... completely distracting, really ruined the book for me.

Too Much Background noise/music/sound effects

Nice plot, but the background noise/music/sound effects were very distracting. Would have been better with out the noise.
