Overview

The Overlook (Harry Bosch Series #13) by Michael Connelly

Near Mulholland Drive, Dr. Stanley Kent is found shot twice in the back of the head. It's the case LAPD detective Harry Bosch has been waiting for, his first since being recruited to the Homicide Special Squad. When he discovers that Kent had access to dangerous radioactive substances, what begins as a routine investigation becomes something darker, more deadly, and frighteningly urgent. Bosch is soon in conflict with not only his superiors but the FBI, which thinks the case is too important for just a cop. Complicating his job even more is the presence of Agent Rachel Walling, his onetime lover. Now guarding one slim advantage, Bosch relentlessly follows his own instincts, hoping they are still sharp enough to find the truth--and a killer who can annihilate an entire city.

I have read all of the Harry Bosch books in order and I must say that I was a bit disappointed in this book. It just didn't hold my interest as much as the rest of Michael Connellly books I have read. I love the Harry Bosch series, but it is beginning to look like Harry is one of those types that likes to hold back information to make himself look better and I am a bit disappointed that my favorite character would be so selfish. However, even though this book was not one of my favorites, I am going to continue to read the Harry Bosch series until I have read them all. I think every writer puts out one or two books that just don't quite measure up to some of their previous books and this may have been one of those for Michael Connelly. Just my 2 cents worth...

The book was on the short side, but the plot was interesting.  I gave it only 2 stars because it wasn't as good as others in  this series.  Connelly spends pages and pages talking about the lack of cooperation between the LAPD & FBI.  After awhile it became very tedious and downright boring.

I was hooked on the Bosch Series from book #1. This one, though, is awful compared to the rest of the series. It reads as if the author is sick of Bosch. The ending is weak, and it feels as though the author was too bored to put any effort into a decent finish. The ending is not at all satisfying and not very interesting. If you truly like the Bosch books, do yourself a favor and skip this one. If you absolutely feel the need to read it, check it out at a library; save your money.

Somewhat predictable and not up to Michael's best

I have to agree with many other reviewers of this short Harry Bosch tale ... none of the characters, especially Harry Bosch, are particularly likable. I think this is the first book in this genre that I found the main character to be a complete jerk and found it nearly impossible to care about. I did think the ending was an unexpected twist. It was a short, quick read ... wouldn't say I enjoyed the book. I guessing other books in this series must be better or there wouldn't be so many of them.
