A Darkness More Than Night — 5 stars

It's getting harder and harder for me to come up with something new to say in my reviews as I slowly plow through the Harry Bosch novels. Page turner; awesomely film noir; great characters; engaging plots; well written; etc, etc. I'm beginning to feel like a talking parrot.

A Darkness More Than Night is the seventh installment in the series, but it's really more of a Terry McCaleb novel than a Harry Bosch one.

Sure, Bosch is front and center throughout the bo

I'm a fan so I have absolutely no objectivity- love this stuff- already had ready Lost Light but re-read it in this anthology and didn't mind doing it.

By Michael Connelly. Harry Bosch #9. Grade: B
Michael Connelly writes about crime fiction and detective mysteries and has innumerable fans across the globe, including Bill Clinton! The Lost Light takes that same theme and was slated as one of the Best Books of 2003 by the Los Angeles Times.
The Lost Light, simply put, is an example of a retired officer attempting to solve a case that got away. The case is one of those ones that hold an unexplainable special place in the officer’s heart. Harry Bosc

I finished the first story, "A Darkness More Than Night," today and found it to be a very satisfying police procedural novel. The characters were well drawn and Connelly's detailed description put me right into the story, moment by moment. I was a little thrown by the focus on the Terry McCaleb character instead of Harry Bosch. However, as I got into the depths of the mystery, I saw the wisdom of it. I will not explain why because that would be a major spoiler. This is definitely a worthy additi ...more

I recently read Michael Connelly’s entire catalog, chronologically from Bosch to Haller to the various “Harry Bosch Universe” satellites (whatever the hell that means). On a whole Connelly’s body of work is excellent. His plots are well thought out, his dialogue fits, and his characters are believable – although the best character of them all is the City of Los Angeles and its quirky nuances, restaurants, neighborhoods, and geographic coolness. Connelly nails the cop noir, the legal thriller, an ...more

This was three great stories in a row--A Darkness More Than Light introduces Terry McCaleb who was a good balance for Harry who seems to be going off the rails! City of Bones sees Harry having to make a huge decision about his future--really, he is leaving the force!! Lost Light reveals a sad man, but I still love him!

McCaleb & Bosch, interesting mystery with character development, esp. for fans of either or both. Gruesome murder scene well described. Audiobook narrated by Michael Beck but recorded too low hear comfortably without extra speakers. Recommended.

The darkness more than night...
This tale started off too slowly for me. Not much action, but building the story line.
But Harry is Harry and it is always enjoyable to follow his escapades on getting in and out of trouble.

so...i knew harry bosch was named after an artist but not until this book did i know i knew the artist...the garden of earthly delights is the piece i knew from my art class in college. anyway, not it really matters but it is fun to have layers of knowledge in a mystery!

Watched the Amazon series based on these books first, and then decided to go back and read the books.
I don't do that very often, and frankly I prefer to read the books first then see the movie/show.
These are very well written and engaging. I will continue the series.

Great to have a collection of stories from a master writer who knows how to take readers into mystery and suspense. If you need a good read that will be a page turner you only have to look for a book by Michael Connelly.

A good story. I really enjoyed the story, the only things I didn't like was all the swearing. Way to many F-bombs. Kinda spoiled it for me.

I decided to read all the Harry Bosch books in order. This triology consists of books 7, 8 and 9. I wasn't crazy about the story line in Lost Light, but I am enjoying learning about Harry's life.
