Michael Connelly’s latest Harry Bosch novel, The Overlook, started as a serialized novel, and despite a serious reworking it’s less of a treat than we’re used to getting from Michael Connelly.
Apart from the length and somewhat shallow plot, the biggest problem with The Overlook is that Harry Bosch feels tired.
Not up to Connelly’s usual standards, but if you’re a Bosch fan, it’s better than nothing.
