Connelly Michael Connelly has made a name for himself by creating the characters Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller. In The Overlook, Connelly’s 2007 entry into the Harry Bosch files, the mystery writer takes on a case where Bosch must work with the FBI in a suspected terrorist case. This is the 13th Harry Bosch novel (Connelly began the series with The Black Echo in 1992) and the LAPD detective again demonstrates his Holmes-esque attention to detail and also his inability to follow bureaucratic rules. In this book there is one chapter/situation in which Connelly really draws a scary picture of the kind of damage terrorism has done and how the trust and freedom of speech & religion gets trampled because with the current mood in the US officially sanctioned murder gets swept under the rug.

LARGE PRINT EDITION of Michael Connelly's The Overlook. From Publishers Weekly Starred Review. Bestseller Connelly's dazzling 13th Harry Bosch novel (after 2006's Echo Park) reunites Bosch with his former flame, FBI agent Rachel Walling. Bosch must break in a new partner, rookie Iggy Ferras, when they're called to look into the execution of physicist Stanley Kent on a Mulholland Drive overlook. When a special FBI unit, headed by Walling, arrives and tries to usurp his case, claiming it's a matter of national security, Bosch refuses to back down. Walling's focus on the potential theft of radioactive material from the hospital where Kent was lending his expertise to cancer treatment and her unwillingness to share information only make Bosch more determined to solve the case. This is a quick read, almost half the length of Connelly's previous novels, but he spares no punches when it comes to complexity and suspense. The scramble to investigate threats to national security, justified or otherwise, is a timely subject and one on which Connelly puts a brilliant new spin.

As a middle aged, third generation Angelino, who is a private investigator, once worked at a newspaper, was married to a cop and worked with several retired cops & FBI there are several things I like about this series.

I love that this man knows, understands and good and bad, loves our city and really LA is more than the city itself, it is an area, a very large area. I don’t find this is often the case with most fiction books I have read that take place here.

He is pretty accurate with police procedure, investigation, newspapers, the history of LA, how police are, the politics and how it feels to investigate. In this book little things thrown in like the huge bonus the contractor received for getting the 10 open ahead of schedule and the octopus in San Pedro killing itself are true and give a feeling of authenticity. Although there were things that did not make sense and I questioned I can’t help but love Bosch. I am reading this series in order and I am waiting to see if he brings up less known things about LAPD and expands the areas he works in.

It begins with Harry Bosch, newly reassigned to Homicide Division of the LAPD, getting a call from his lieutenant in the middle of the night. A body has been found on the Mulholland overlook. It is a man who had been shot execution-style with two bullets to the back of the head. The body was found next to his car which had its trunk left open. On the floor of the trunk, indentations in the carpet showed that something very heavy and square had been positioned there, but whatever it was is now gone.

Bosch and his new partner, Ignacio Ferras, are assigned to the case, but very soon the FBI shows up. It develops that the heavy thing which had been carried in the car's trunk was a lead "pig" which contained radioactive cesium. The murdered man was a medical physicist who worked with several hospitals that handled radioactive medical material. The investigation reveals that, at the last hospital he visited, he took the hospital's entire supply of the material. He left a note in the safe explaining what he had done.

Prior to his visit to the hospital, the victim had been sent an email with an attached picture of his wife, naked and tied up on their bed at home. The sender of the email told him that she was being held hostage and would be tortured, raped, and killed if he did not deliver the radioactive cesium to a designated location. He did as he was told but then he was shot and killed and the cesium taken. The police found his wife exactly as depicted in the photograph but otherwise unharmed.

The tug-of-war over the case begins almost immediately. To Harry, it is a murder case, one he is determined to solve. To the FBI and the rest of the federal government, it is a potential terrorist case. The amount of cesium involved could do untold damage to the city and its population.

One of the FBI agents on the case is Bosch's former lover, Rachel Walling, which just complicates matters further. The usual bureaucratic territorial struggles that seem to occur in every Bosch mystery ensue. Cooperation between the agencies and the LAPD is meager. Often the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing.

Harry, though, doggedly sticks to his murder case on the theory that if they find the murderer, they'll find the cesium. And, anyway, he isn't entirely convinced on the terror angle. He thinks there might be another motive for the murder.

I found The Overlook to be atypical Connelly in that the telling of it seemed a bit disjointed. I read afterward that the story had been serialized in a magazine originally, so perhaps that accounts for my impression that it just wasn't quite as smooth as the usual Connelly mystery.

On the whole, though, it was a good story, a good read. Even second-rate Connelly is better than most mystery writers can offer.

Nowadays, with my mind like a sieve, if I don't review a book as soon as I've read it, I might as well not bother.

Having just finished this book, I will have to say that I enjoyed it. Some people didn't like it because it was short, but this is exactly why I did like it. If you take away all the padding that Connelly and most other authors put in their novels, most of them would be this short. So, for me, this was refreshing for him not to have so much non-essential crap.

One of the reasons I like this author is his ability to come up with plot twists that I never saw coming. I really hate to figure things out, and enjoy being surprised. I've read all his books in sequence, and this is the only one in which I figured it out. There were still a couple of surprises, but I knew who was responsible for the doctor's death early on.

This wasn't Connelly's best, but it was still entertaining, and I'm glad I ignored some of the one or two-star reviews, and read it anyway.

This is the fourth novel in the Harry Bosch series and despite it being over 500 pages I devoured this book in less than a day. I think why the story was able to hold my interest so much is because this book explores what really had an impact on Harry's life, the murder of his mother. At the beginning of the book, you find out that once again Harry has done something to tick off the higher ups and is on paid leave and forced to meet with a shrink. Facing some unexpected vacation time, he decides to go over the case files of his mother's unsolved murder.

Once again Michael Connelly really manages to deliver a solid mystery with a complex main character. While the previous books certainly had good character development, I really felt by the end of this one that I have a much better picture of Harry and why he is the way he is. I'm really excited to read the next book in the series because I don't know what lies ahead for the character and I don't think Harry really knows either. Definitely recommend if you liked the first three books in the series.
