A Darkness More Than Night: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*
LAPD Detective Harry Bosch crosses paths with FBI profiler Terry McCaleb in the most dangerous investigation of their lives.
Harry Bosch is up to his neck in a case that has transfixed all of celebrity-mad Los Angeles: a movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. Bosch is both the arresting officer and the star witness in a trial that has brought the Hollywood media pack out in full-throated frenzy.
Meanwhile, Terry McCaleb is enjoying an idyllic retirement on Catalina Island when a visit from an old colleague brings his former world rushing back. It's a murder, the unreadable kind of murder he specialized in solving back in his FBI days. The investigation has stalled, and the sheriff's office is asking McCaleb to take a quick look at the murder book to see if he turns up something they've missed.
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, involving almost inconceivable calculation. 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.

The story was great as usual, but as the review states, the reader is no Dick Hill. Dick Hill to me had Harry Bosch down pat. I went ahead and downloaded the next edition but before I did, I listened to the rewiew and the reader there is no Dick Hill either. Michael Connelly did another great job with this book. Wife would kill me if she knew I downloaded two books in less than a week, but as Harry Bosch says, as he did in this book, "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do."
I rarely remember titles, so including a review requirement is not relevant to me.
Good story, but the background sound effects were annoying and superfluous.
I have all the previous Bosch audiobooks leading up to this one and have enjoyed them termendously. I also really enjoy Dick Hill as a narrator on all his books. I really struggled to complete this one, both because of the content and the narrator was terrible in my opinion. I wish I would have stuck with the local public library abridged version. I would have been much happier with the results. I actually ended up returning this book to Audible, first time I've ever done that. Stay away from this version.
