This is not Michael Connelly’s best effort. The intrigue was not there for me. I had the murderer pegged early in the story. It seems the primary purpose of The Overlook was to bash the FBI and reconnect him and a female FBI agent. After reading it, I discovered that it was originally published as a serial and had been expanded for book publication. Maybe that’s why it was written as it was. If you are new to Michael Connelly, I suggest starting with Echo Park or The Narrows. Both are better than The Overlook.
