The Overlook

This is an okay book written by Michael Connelly. A body has been found on the overlook near Mulholland Drive. The victim, identified as Dr. Stanley Kent, has two bullet holes in the back of his head from what looks like an execution-style shooting. LAPD detective Harry Bosch is called out to investigate. It is the case he has been waiting for, his first since being recruited to the city’s Homicide Special Squad. As soon as Bosch begins retracing Dr. Kent’s steps, contradictions emerge. While Kent doesn’t seem to have had ties to organized crime, he did have access to dangerous radioactive substances from just about every hospital in Los Angeles County.

This is the thirteenth novel featuring Harry Bosch and originally appeared as sixteen installments in The New York Times Magazine.
