If a murder comes with any sort of political, celebrity or media dimension, or if the case is just too hot for the regular LAPD to handle, this is where the case ends up. And Homicide Special was where Harry Bosch found himself now. Anxious as a rookie, waiting at home in the dark for the first call. And when it came, it wasn't hard to see why the regular cops were steering clear. A body had been found on the Mulholland overlook, a place with a stunning view of the city. Not exactly where you'd dump a body if you were shy of publicity. Stanley Kent was a medical physicist with access to some highly toxic substances. He also had two bullets in the back of his head. And a quantity of potentially deadly radioactive chemical was missing. Suddenly Harry finds himself plunged into an investigation with a whole new and horrifying dimension. If Kent had been murdered by terrorists, they were now in possession of a weapon that could cause untold mayhem city-wide. With the clock ticking down, Harry must battle competing agencies and deal with unexpected ghosts from his past, or his first case at Homicide Special would be his last.Read Less

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.
Detective Harry Bosch is called into another complex case. This one starts out looking like an ?old fashioned hit. A male body has been shot twice in the back of the head and found at a look-out point just off Mulholland Drive. Why are ID cards to the major hospitals on the body? As the night goes on FBI agent Rachel Walling crashes into the scene ready to take over the investigation. Bosch and Walling have a "past" which plays like a double edged sword. She can share some things Harry cannot know and has to decide how far beyond those boundaries she can go. The victim, Stanley Kent, is a physicist whose job is to deliver radioactive isotopes to hospitals who treat cancer patients. But the materials can be used as terrorist devices. Michael Connelly can always be relied on to deliver a riveting, tension filled and interesting book. The twists and turns of plot and the array of characters makes THE OVERLOOK a thrilling read.
