Publisher's Write-Up

Former FBI agent, Terry McCaleb, hero of the bestseller Blood Work, comes out of retirement to help the Los Angeles Police Department investigate a most baffling and bizarre killing...similar to the murders he once profiled for the FBI. Reluctantly, McCaleb is drawn from his peaceful life on Catalina Island with a new wife and daughter back into the adrenaline-fuelled tension of seeing inside a horrifyingly deranged criminal mind.

More horrifying still, the suspect who fits the profile that McCaleb develops is someone he has known and worked with in the past: a homicide detective from the LAPD who has perhaps stepped across the line and embraced the darkness he formerly combated - Harry 'Hieronymus' Bosch.

A Darkness More Than Night is the most riveting and original thriller of Michael Connelly's remarkable career.

I did not know that this was coming out, so you can imagine how pleased I was to find it on the shelf in my local Asda.

It is a new Harry Bosch novel, but is more about Bosch as he is not the main character. Our leading man is Terry McCaleb, the ex FBI man with a heart transplant, who is asked by Jay Winston to look at a murder which seems to be the beginning of a set pattern of a serial killer.

It is not possible to say a great deal without giving away plot twists, for which you would not thank me if you are considering reading this.

I like Michael Connelly, and I liked this one. I suppose I could say that it has been a long while in coming, because it is kind of obvious, but I have enjoyed it anyway. I never knew that owls used to be viewed as evil, but you learn something new every day...
