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

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.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-04-02 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. (May 22) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
