The Overlook

The Overlook by Michael Connelly began its life as a 16 part serial for the New York Times Magazine, which could account for its shorter than usual length for a Harry Bosch novel, but despite its slight frame, the story still packs a hefty punch. After two novels where Bosch was without a badge, and two working cold cases, The Overlook puts him back where he was born to be – Robbery Homicide Special – the best of the best chasing the murderers and monsters that Connelly’s vision of Hollywood seems to breed. The plot is perfectly paced, and plays cleverly upon post 9/11 paranoia, while also managing to show just how dangerous that paranoia can be.
