Terry McCaleb's enforced quiet lifestyle on the island of Catalina is a far cry from the hectic excitement of his former role as an FBI profiler. However, when small-time criminal Edward Gunn is found dead, McCaleb becomes embroiled in a disturbing and complex case leading him to cross the path of Harry Bosch. This infamous detective has always teetered on the brink of darkness in order to get inside the head of the killer. Is it possible that he has stepped across that finely drawn line and embraced darkness?Read by Michael Beck

Review quote

Lots of authentic police procedure, and Michael Beck's pace and varied characterisation, add to the enjoyment -- Christina Hardyment * THE INDEPENDENT * Connelly's many fans are in for a treat because his latest novel features his unorthodox streetwise cop Harry Bosch and brilliant psychological profiler Terry McCaleb ... Sharply original and unfailingly gripping * MAIL ON SUNDAY * Connelly writes with a controlled fury that jumps right off the page. This is sublime stuff * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * A richly plotted and complex novel ... The resolution is brilliantly worked out ... and, as is usual with this author, there is a coda that brings more surprises. A rich and satisfying read, this, and one that throws light on the dark underbelly of human behaviour * IRISH TIMES * The plot rattles along in fifth gear, with upsets galore on every page. A thrilling, challenging read, as one has come to expect from Connelly * GUARDIAN * There's no doubt that when it comes to crime writing Connelly is right on top of the heap: impelled by a ferociously powerful narrative drive, his books grip with the prehensile strength of a mole wrench ... far better than its rivals, with a brilliantly organised plot and a genuinely exciting ending * EVENING STANDARD * Another gripping, well-written thriller. At times gut-wrenchingly scary, at times maddeningly cryptic, he keeps you enthralled to the last page * DAILY MAIL * A DARKNESS MORE THAN NIGHT ... has the authentic Connelly touches - crisp dialogue, masterly pacing and his familiar preoccupation with the battle against evil - and it makes gripping reading * DAILY TELEGRAPH * Michael Connelly has created a range of memorable cops and robbers, any one who could sustain a series ... This book is ingenious, original and - with every beat of its procedural heart - authentic * LITERARY REVIEW *
