Living: Book Reviews - Bookends


A Darkness More Than Night

by Michael Connelly

(Orion, pounds 16.99)

HERE'S a criminally clever combination. After establishing characters Harry Bosch and Terry McCaleb in separate series of thrillers, award-winner Connelly goes for the jugular - by pitting one against the other.

The former, a Vietnam veteran turned intense LAPD homicide detective, may hide a guilty secret and the latter, a forensic profiler who retired after a heart transplant, is asked to tackle one last investigation.

The two play cat and mouse, their wary moves played out against the backdrop of a gripping sub-plot involving the murder trial of a famous Hollywood movie director.

Of course, there's more to the mystery than meets the eye. PC

The Inn Way To The North

Yorks Moors by Mark Reid

(Innway, pounds 7.95)

MARK Reid used to be an area manager for Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries.

At the age of 27, he gave up his career to become an author. His trademark is to combine two of the great loves of his life - hill-walking and pubs.

Mark, now 31, has just published his fourth book - The Inn Way to the North Yorks Moors.

It contains an 89-mile, six-day circular walk of one of the few remaining areas of wilderness in England, taking in pubs en route.
