Harry Bosch meets an ex-FBI profiler in one of the most disturbing cases he has faced...From the bestselling author of The Lincoln Lawyer. Bosch Tv Starts February 2015.

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?

Industry Reviews

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 *
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 *
Another gripping, well-written thriller. At times gut-wrenchingly scary, at times maddeningly cryptic, he keeps you enthralled to the last page * DAILY MAIL *
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 *
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 *
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 *
Connelly writes with a controlled fury that jumps right off the page. This is sublime stuff * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
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 *

About the Author


Michael Connelly decided to become a writer after discovering the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Once he decided on this direction he chose a major in journalism and a minor in creative writing — a curriculum in which one of his teachers was novelist Harry Crews.

After graduating in 1980, Connelly worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, primarily specializing in the crime beat. In Fort Lauderdale he wrote about police and crime during the height of the murder and violence wave that rolled over South Florida during the so-called cocaine wars. In 1986, he and two other reporters spent several months interviewing survivors of a major airline crash. They wrote a magazine story on the crash and the survivors which was later short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. The magazine story also moved Connelly into the upper levels of journalism, landing him a job as a crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, one of the largest papers in the country, and bringing him to the city of which his literary hero, Chandler, had written.

After three years on the crime beat in L.A., Connelly began writing his first novel to feature LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch. The novel, The Black Echo, based in part on a true crime that had occurred in Los Angeles, was published in 1992 and won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by the Mystery Writers of America. Connelly has followed that up with 18 more novels. Connelly's books have been translated in 35 languages and have won the Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award, Los Angeles Times Best Mystery/Thriller Award, Shamus Award, Dilys Award, Nero Award, Barry Award, Audie Award, Ridley Award, Maltese Falcon Award (Japan), .38 Caliber Award (France), Grand Prix Award (France), and Premio Bancarella Award (Italy).

Michael was the President of the Mystery Writers of America organization in 2003 and 2004. In addition to his literary work, Michael was one of the creators, writers, and consulting producers of Level 9, a TV show about a task force fighting cyber crime, that ran on UPN in the Fall of 2000. Michael lives with his family in Florida.
