For the first time in one volume, the three novels that take Harry Bosch through his most perilous cases yet, and to the edge of the abyss. A Darkness More than Night It was a case some cops could live with: the torture and killing of a man who spread horrors of his own. Former FBI profiler Terry McCaleb is called in to decipher the grisly crime scene. Shockingly, the suspect he pinpoints is LAPD detective Harry Bosch. But while Bosch may have had a good reason to commit murder, he has an even better one for staying alive-and for finding a suspect of his own. City of Bones A dog finds a bone in the Hollywood Hills and unearths a murder committed more than twenty years earlier. It's a cold case, but Bosch can't let it go. As the investigation takes him deeper into the past, a beautiful rookie cop brings him alive in the present-until a stunningly blown mission and a brutal showdown leave Bosch on the brink of an unimaginable decision. Lost Light For years, the unsolved murder of Angella Benton has haunted him. Bosch was taken off the young production assistant's case when her death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the LAPD, Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. And even in the faces of a powerful and ruthless opponent, he will not back down, with or without a badge. Together, these three riveting, relentlessly paced novels take us even deeper into the complex hero USA Today has called "one of the most fascinating characters in the mystery world," and show once more that Michael Connelly is "the most talented of crime writers" (The New Yorker).

McCaleb, now married to Graciela and with a baby daughter, is persuaded to take a case from the LA County Sheriff's office. He is asked to profile the killer of an unsolved murder. The victim was a scuzzball who six years earlier had been arrested by Harry Bosch for murder but then released uncharged by the DA's office. In doing what he does best - reviewing the crime scene tapes and investigative records - McCaleb picks up a clue the sheriffs missed, a plastic owl left at the crime scene that the sheriffs thought belonged to the victim. McCaleb discovers that it was left by the killer as a message. He traces this symbol to an icon used as a sign of evil in renaissance paintings, and finds that one of the most frequent users of this iconography was none other than Hieronymus Bosch, which makes Harry a suspect. The book becomes an examination of Harry Bosch through the eyes of McCaleb. 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...

The American police novel emerged soon after World War II and by the end of the century it was one of the most important forms of American crime fiction. The vogue for either Holmesian genius or the plucky amateur detective dominated mystery fiction until mid-century; the police hero offered a way to make the traditional mystery story contemporary. The police novel reflects sociology and history, and addresses issues tied to the police force, such as corruption, management, and brutality. Since the police novel reflects current events, the changing natures of crime, court procedures, and legislation have an impact on its plots and messages. An examination of the police novel covers both the evolution of a genre of fiction and American culture in general. This work traces the emergence of the police officer as hero and the police novel as a significant popular genre, from the cameo appearances of police in detective novels of the 1930s and 1940s through the serial killer and forensic novels of the 1990s. It follows the ways in which professional writers and police officers turned writers view the police individually and collectively. The work chronicles the ways in which changes in the law and society have affected the actions of the police and shows how the protagonists of police novels have changed in gender, race, nationality, sexual orientation, and age over the years. The major writers examined begin with Julian Hawthorne in the nineteenth century, and include such writers as S.S. van Dine, Ellery Queen, Erle Stanley Gardner, Ed McBain, Chester Himes, MacKinley Kantor, Hillary Waugh, Dorothy Uhnak, Joseph Wambaugh, Bob Leuci, W.E.B. Griffin, and Carol O'Connor.

The first of von Speyr's scriptural commentaries, focusing on her reflections on the first five chapters of John and the beginning of the public life of Our Lord. She shares moving meditations on such profound and dramatic scenes as the witness of John the Baptist, the call of the disciples, the wedding at Cana, the cleansing of the money-changers in the temple, the Samaritan woman, etc. The combination of the Scripture verses and her meditations provide rich nourishment for prayer and spiritual reading. This series is particularly important because the spirituality of St. John, the Apostle of Divine Love, was the central source of von Speyr's own inspiration and spiritual life.

Cold, cruel, and arrogant, Michael is very much his father's son. Obsessed by stories of genocide, this pampered prince's curiosity gets the better of him. Realizing that his boring life of luxury is holding him back from knowing what the world is really like, Michael sets out on a journey of self-discovery without any true understanding of what awaits him on the surface. At first, his arrogance is enough for those first few steps, but that false strength quickly leaves him when confronted with the harsh new realities of life. Once on the surface, he meets mutated plant and animal life, encounters what is left of humanity, and begins to understand what it truly means to be human in this dangerous new world. It threatens to break him, to leave him with nowhere to go and no one to turn to. In time, Michael will find his way and maybe even become something he had never thought possible: someone who deserves the many wonders of his life.

Have you ever felt lost and confused with no direction? Have you felt like giving up, because going on would be too hard? You're not alone; so many people have experienced these struggles. Finding Light in the Darkness offers a collection of poetry and journal entries covering five years of a young woman's life as she faced these difficult times. Diagnosed with clinical depression, author Jenna Bernard quickly lost herself in a cloud of confusion, fear, and anger. She stepped into a whirlwind of substance abuse to cope with the obstacles in her life she was not prepared to handle. By finding faith in God, however, she was able to ultimately find faith in herself. Her poems emerged from a very deep place within her soul--a child desperate for someone to hear her voice. Inspired to compile her poetry into a collection after entering outpatient treatment in February of 2007, Bernard hopes that her response to her hardships will give strength and hope to others who are struggling. She offers living proof that circumstances can change, miracles do happen, and life does get better.
