Terry McCaleb, a retired FBI agent, is asked by the LAPD to help them investigate a series of murders that have them baffled. They are the kind of killings McCaleb specialized in solving with the FBI, and he is reluctantly drawn from his peaceful new life back into the horror and excitement of tracking down a terrifying homicidal maniac.

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. 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This great thriller will keep you busy…Connelly is the best of a very large group…of thriller writers following in the footsteps of Raymond Chandler.”

    Denver Rocky Mountain News

  • “It’s the kind of plot that used to make great Westerns: two old gunslingers circling each other warily, each of them wondering if the other’s gone bad. But there’s more than one black hat in them thar hills, and Connelly masterfully joins the plot lines in a climax and denouement that will leave readers gasping but satisfied.”

    Amazon.com editorial review

  • “Connelly...is a devious, resourceful plotter and a world-class storyteller. [A Darkness More Than Night] generates the kind of irresistible momentum that very few novelists ever manage to achieve. At the same time, it offers empathetic portraits of two memorably complex protagonists with more than their share of ghosts, griefs, and personal demons to contend with. A Darkness More Than Night is an intelligent, compassionate, unfailingly entertaining thriller.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “As with all the Bosch thrillers, plot twists abound, but in this case the story itself carries the novel...Connelly is always popular, and this is Connelly at his best.”

    Library Journal

  • “You can’t lose with this chilling tour de force.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " Another great story by Connelley. I just can't get enough of his books. I keep wanting to change up the genre but his detective stories keep me captivated and always wanting more. This is a change up for me from the usual Bosch books but in this one Bosch is the suspect which made things interesting. Loved this book and look forward to c=more of his writings. "

    " Michael Connelly is a great story teller, and in this story has combined two of my favorite characters of his creation, Terry McCaleb, and Harry Bosch. Anyone who has ever read a Harry Bosch story could never believe that Harry could be any kind of killer - a man who has lost more than his job to hunt down a killer of people for whom no one else seems to care. But it’s Terry McCaleb, a supreme,FBI profiler, and expert on gruesomeness and killers. How could he be wrong? Read the book and find out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Slow Motion | 5/23/2016

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this work by Michael Connelly. The narrator was easy to following, going in and out of character as needed. The story had a lot of unsuspecting twists making it hard to stop listening. Each track played successfully with little to no skipping. Some of the tracks are pretty long so be sure to use the apps sleep timer if you are listening late in the evening so that you don't lose your spot. "

    " I didn't care for this Connelly as much. Just didn't feel the same as the others. "

    " Harry Bosch is hard,, takes unnecessary risks and is a great character, interesting to see him from the outside as this book sees him from the viewpoint of another character. "

    " One of my favorite Harry Bosch novels so far. I liked how the two story lines/cases moved along side by side, and I liked getting to know things about Harry from McCaleb's perspective. "
