A highly enjoyable read with a lot of twists and action concerning the murder of a scientist dealing with radioactive materials. Connelly’s established character, Harry Bosch, enters the scene in another beautifully structured crime novel. Interestingly, it was originally published as a serial in The New York Times so there are plenty of cliff-hangers, and Connelly has added a new final chapter.

Comparison: Harlan Coben, G M Ford, James Lee Burke

If you like Michael Connelly you might also like to read books by Jeffery Deaver, John Grisham and Dennis Lehane.

Synopsis

The Overlook by Michael Connelly

The pulse-quickening new thriller from master of suspense Michael Connelly sees Harry Bosch plunged into the dangerous world of international terrorism.

When a physicist is murdered in LA it seems the killer has no fear of publicity, leaving the body on The Mulholland overlook, a site with a stunning view over the city. And when it's discovered that the victim turned over a quantity of a lethal chemical to his killer before he died, Harry knows he has more than just a single death to worry about.

Alongside the forces of Homeland Security, Harry realises he must solve the murder or face unimaginable consequences.
