WOW!!! This was a page turner to the end. Retired Profiler McCaleb is called upon to help with a case. Unfortunately, his profile leads to an old crony, Det Bosch, who is currently testifying in a big, Hollywood murder case. The twists and turns this book takes had me up all night--even after I peeked to see 'whodunit'. One of Connelly's best, in my opinion!!!

I didn't even realize this book was part of a series until I was a little way into it. As a stand alone book it was very good and kept me guessing until the end. A great read!

I recommend reading both Bloodwork and The Last Coyote before reading A Darkness More Than Night; Not so much for plot lines but for an introduction to Terry McCaleb and Harry Bosch.

For those reading the Connelly series, this is a neat read as you get to see Bosch and McCaleb collide.

As a standalone book, it's a good plot with a few twists and a bit of action. But you miss what makes this book fun if you haven't gotten to know the characters previously.

4 stars out of 5

I love Michael Connelly, and this book was no disappointment. Combining Terry McCaleb and Harry Bosch in this book made it even better.

Happily married (to the woman whose sister provided his new heart--see Bloodwork) former FBI profiler Terry McCaleb is brought into a case 'just to have a look' by his old friend Jaye Winston of the Sheriff's office. Of course he can't (in spite of Graciela's protests)just stop there...especially when he determines the prime suspect is another old friend, Harry Bosch! All this and that annoying (but loveable) Buddy Lockridge. Fun read.

You can't miss with Michael Connely. His books are always tightly written, nicely plotted, with good characters. I am easily annoyed by mediocre writing, so when I can't take another mediocre book, I know I can depend on a Connelly novel.

The more you read, the more maze-like become Connelly's coils of complication. The more shadowy the mysteries that lurk around McCaleb and Bosch.

Exceptional Connelly. He's a cut above the usual mystery/thriller writer, and this one won't disappoint!

Great Harry Bosch story even though the central character at the beginning is Terry McCabe, a former FBI profiler. McCabe has retired but is asked by L.A. County Sheriff's department to look a murder that all the signs of a serial killer. It looks to McCabe that the profile points to Harry!

Book Seven in the Harry Bosch Series. Cross-over with Terry McCaleb from Blood Work. (The book is more fun to read if you've read Blood Work first -- good character continuity.)

Michael Connelly is a New York Times best selling author with his books "Angels Flight" and "Void Moon."

An investigater is hot on the trail of an unknown torture-killing murderer, and inlists the help of a former criminal profiler because she believes the killer will strike again.

There are many plot twists and suprises in this one. I couldn't wait to curl up to it each evening....really gives you goose bumps!

I was disappointed in this entry in the Harry Bosch series. Harry's character seemed underwritten and I didn't particularly care for Terry's character. Will not detract me from moving on to the next in the series.

I have enjoyed all of the Harry Bosch novels and it was a little disconcerting to me that he was seriously being investigated for a murder by a criminal profiler, Terry McCaleb. This book was seen through the eyes of McCaleb, who had worked with Harry years earlier and even though he did not want to believe that Harry was guilty, all of the evidence pointed straight to him.

I really love Harry Bosch and thought this provided a lot of insyte into the character, Terry Macaled, the character from Blood Work, joins forces with Harry, but suddenly Harry becomes the suspect in a grisly murder and it's up to Tarry to either prove he did it or prove he didn't.

Attn Harry Bosch fans -- you should love A Darkness More Than Light. I love Michael Connelly but I'm not a fan of the Bosch novels, so I haven't actually read this (I did read The Concrete Blonde, and that's when I decided I wasn't big on Bosch}. If Bosch is your boyo, tho, then order this novel!
