Terry McCaleb, the retired FBI agent who starred in the bestseller "Blood Work," is asked by the LAPD to help them investigate aseries of murders that have them baffled.

Terry McCaleb is done with his profiling days - he lives on Catalina island, has a daughter now and he is running fishing tours out from Catalina and he does not want to hear about serial killers anymore. Except that the universe and his old colleagues missed the memo - so he gets asked to just look at a case, almost for old times sake. Which is the last thing you do to a man who used to love his job.

Meanwhile, in LA proper, Harry Bosch is stuck in a courtroom, trying to assist the prosecution win its case against a murderer. The trial is in the news - the accused is a famous movie director, the victim is a wannabe actress and that makes everyone in tinsel town pay attention - one way or another, Hollywood will find a way to thrive on that.

The two cases do not seem to have anything in common at the start but then they would not be in the same book if they did not - and before long McCaleb builds a profile that matches Bosch. And with Harry being everyone's favorite in the police department (not), it comes down to the accused himself to try to clear his own name.

It is a tightly plotted novel and the "detective is accused in the crime" trope appears in most detective series sooner or later. This one was done well - using McCaleb made it look less as a hatchet job and more of a real possibility for awhile. The fact that it did not seem to be connected to Bosch's case also helped although if one had read enough novels in the genre, it was obvious that they must intersect somewhere. The appearance of Jack McEvoy and his role in the whole thing reinforced the idea that all of Connelly's series are essentially part of a mega-series and a shared universe and you can expect anyone to pop up in any of the novels.

While the end of the case was expected (even of how we got there was somewhat unorthodox), the end of the novel threw yet another curve ball at the reader. As is often the case, white and black do not exist when people are concerned and even if Bosch was not a killer, he was not entirely innocent either.

Another strong novel in the Bosch mega-series. ( )

I like Michael Connelly's books, but this one a little less than most others. The plot was a stretch, to me. The ritualized murder and its obscure clues left behind to frame Harry Bosch was hard for me to buy into. But I liked the Harry Bosch novels, and will come back for another Terry McCaleb book in the future, I'm sure.

Terry just isn't Bosch ( )

Started out slow with who is this McCaleb guy but it moved fast into the season that focused on this book. HB is being set up by a movie director who he arrested for murder. Bosch was seen from the outside as almost this uber detective w a dark side. The ending came up fast and there was too much McCaleb and courtroom. But written well by Connelly. ( )

Connelly opens A Darkness More Than Night with a new protagonist, Terry McCaleb, whom he had developed in earlier novels. Though McCaleb is now retired and still recuperating after a heart transplant five years previously, he takes on an investigation, pro bono, into a possible serial killer. The investigation leads to ties between the works of Hieronymus Bosch, the artist; and Hieronymus Bosch, the detective.
While McCaleb and Sheriff's detective Jaye Winston are investigating Bosch as a suspect in the murder of Edward Gunn, Bosch is testifying in court delineating the investigation of the murder of Jody Krementz by David N. Storey, a celebrity film director.
Connelly ties all together brilliantly in a thrilling and intriguing ending.
