Format: Mass Market Paperback
When the LAPD run into a brick wall solving a bizarre murder, sheriff's detective, Jay Winston, asks her friend Terry McCaleb, a retired FBI agent recently recovered from a heart transplant, to help them out by polishing up his psychological profiling skills and putting them back to work on their stalled case. Edward Gunn, a small-time LA hood involved with the murder of a prostitute was himself found tied, gagged and strangled. McCaleb is convinced that the key to finding Gunn's murderer rests with two bizarre clues - the statue of an owl found in the room with Gunn and the inscription on the tape binding his mouth, "Cave Cave Dus Videt" or "Beware, Beware, God Sees" translated from a version of Latin spoken around the time of the Renaissance.

McCaleb started his search for details on Gunn's murder with an interview of detective Harry Bosch. Bosch, who had been assigned the case of the prostitute's murder and was certain that Gunn had been the killer, was apparently one of the last people to see Gunn alive. But Bosch can only find time to give McCaleb the most cursory of interviews. His time and his mind are fully occupied as the star witness in the very high profile prosecution of David Storey. Storey, a fabulously wealthy Hollywood producer, is on trial for the sex slaying of a young actress. He's alleged to have strangled her during a bout of rough sex and then staged the scene to make her death look like a case of accidental auto-erotic asphyxia.

It's that bizarre owl that's the centerpiece of McCaleb's investigative efforts.

A Darkness More than Night draws you in on the first page and doesn't let you go until the last. You are drawn deep into the soul of Harry Bosch to view the good, the bad, and the ugly in this haunting book. Terry McCaleb is the perfect complement to Bosch's extremely complex character. He is drawn from retirement to help solve a baffling murder and the trail seems to lead in Bosch's direction. Not since The Last Coyote has there been such an intense Harry Bosch novel.

Not as complicated as some of Connellys novels but a very enjoyable plot. Part of the ending you can see coming but true to form the author leaves the reader some surprises. I rate by should I wait for the paperback or buy the hardcover and I am happy I bought the hardcover. Feel comfortable shelling out the dough; you'll be happy.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It is always a difficult thing to do - to bring 2 of your major characters together in a novel. Connelly pulls it off with a flourish.
What makes Connelly tick?
He does not write poetic paragraphs but his writing is crisp and clear.
His characterisation is brilliant. There are no always do-good, super-American heroes in his books
His plotting is almost always brilliant with just about enough twists and turns. I go crazy with plots that twist and turn like a hairpin bend road - it just seems so contrived. This plot would have been perfect except for the last bit with Harry and Terry
There is always a problem with great writers running out of steam - Connelly seems to have not lost it so far (Looks like Narrows passed the test)
The Owl, Paintings and title add to the psyche of the setting
There is something about novels set in LA that has a great feel (like a Western) - from Chandler, McDonald and Connelly continues that tradition with aplomb
Michael Connelly is without doubt the best crime fiction writer alive today.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In A Darkness More than Night Michael Connelly combines two of his greatest characters, Harry Bosch and Terry McCaleb. In this book, you're not sure who you like more.
In an ironic twist of fate, Bosch is the main suspect in a murder that McCaleb is investigating as a favor for an old friend. And if that weren't enough, Bosch is in the middle of an important trial, where his testimony could make or break the case and puts the responsibility of a killer punished or set free on his shoulders. With two suspenseful stories playing out, with characters we know and love, this book proves yet again Connelly's talent for writing. As of yet, I haven't been able to guess an ending yet- he keeps you on your toes!
I enjoyed this book, as I've enjoyed all that came before it from Connelly. The only thing that was a little strange, was that it seemed Connelly had a hard time juggling the two characters and giving them equal time in the book. In a book that is considered part of the "Harry Bosch" series, it really was more about McCaleb and that left a little of a bad taste in my mouth. Even though I enjoy both characters, Bosch is still my favorite and I was looking forward to a book that again, focuses more on him and I didn't quite feel I got that. However, that's the only let down, BUT surprisingly, I did begin enjoy getting to know McCaleb more and more through out this book. I do hope Connelly writes another one featuring him, I just think it might be better though to keep the two characters separate and give them each their own stage.
