Language: English . Brand New. 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. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9781478938224
When a small-time criminal is found dead, former homicide detective McCaleb is persuaded to profile the killer. Six years ago the victim had been arrested by Harry Bosch for murder but was later released uncharged. McCaleb picks up a clue the sheriffs missed, and discovers that the killer left a message at the crime scene - a message that seems to implicate Bosch...
Meanwhile Bosch is in the midst of a high-stakes trial being covered in the press by Jack McEvoy. Bosch was lead investigator on a murder case that saw the arrest of the son of a wealthy and powerful man. As the trial progresses the defence strategy becomes clear: put Bosch on trial instead of the rich kid. McCaleb and Bosch, first at odds, must now work together to clear Harry's name.
Critique: In A Darkness More than Night, Michael Connelly brings together in a clash of values Terry McCaleb, the semi-retired profiler of Blood Work and Harry Bosch, the burned-out LAPD veteran who most recently appeared in Angels Flight. McCaleb is called in unofficially when someone hog-ties acquitted rapist and murderer Gunn and leaves him to strangle himself, and he soon finds everything from the way Gunn died to the plastic owl left watching the corpse pointing him solidly in one direction. Meanwhile Bosch is orchestrating a high-profile case against a Hollywood producer with a taste for strangling his mistresses and a security adviser whose dislike of Bosch goes back a very long way... This is an ingenious thriller which is also a powerful parable about justice and just how far it is possible to go in pursuit of it; Connelly is as intelligent about human motivation and the misunderstandings that destroy friendship as he is about forensics, art history and the mechanics of prosecution. By bringing together two series characters, he ensures that we care passionately about the outcome of his puzzle and his argument; we have a lot invested in who is right, and who is innocent. -- Roz Kaveney
