Revue de presse
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)
Présentation de l'éditeur
Terry McCaleb's enforced quiet lifestyle on the island of Catalina is a far cry from the hectic excitement of his former role as a homicide detective in LA. However, when a small-time criminal is found dead, McCaleb is persuaded to profile the killer.
Six years ago the victim had been arrested by Harry Bosch for murder but was later released uncharged. In doing what he does best, reviewing the crime scene tapes and investigative records, McCaleb picks up a clue the sheriffs missed, and discovers that the killer left a message at the crime scene - a message that seems to implicate Detective Harry Bosch...
Meanwhile Bosch is in the midst of a high-stakes trial being covered in the press by Jack McEvoy. Bosch was lead investigator on a murder case that saw the arrest of the son of a wealthy and powerful man. As the trial progresses, the defence strategy becomes clear: put Bosch on trial instead of the rich kid, make the focus on Bosch and his methods. McCaleb and Bosch, first at odds, must now work together to clear Harry's name.

Dans celui-ci (L'Oiseau des Ténèbres, en français), Harry Bosch rencontre Terry McCaleb, le personnage principal de Bloodwork (Créance de Sang).
À ne pas manquer.
In this book Bosch’s wife has left him, but he hopes she will return. He is also a key police investigator and witness at a murder trial, but soon finds himself a suspect in the same case, then of more unsolved murders. How this ends is not for me to explain.
Think MC is the top writer of police procedurals, along with Ian Rankin is the UK. Their books are carefully and believably plotted about the ambitions and rivalries in the snake pits of large police forces, where true crime fighters are becoming rare. Both writers have one hero and dozens of secondary characters who appear in their books, sometimes after many years. Both heroes, Harry Bosch in LA and John Rebus in Edinburgh, Scotland are fearless crime fighters, driven by more than just ambition. They want justice for victims and their families. Nothing less and no matter how long ago a murder occurred.
In this thriller, MC made Harry Bosch a murder suspect because he wanted to picture him from another perspective. The way MC stacks up a burden of proof against him and uses the historical Hieronymus Bosch is breathtakingly clever. The title and darkness is all over the book, incl. musical titles. Highlight in a brilliant series.
The reader is directly in the story is never lost in non-useful details. Until the very end of the book, everything can happen.
That's excellent, thank you Michael.
