The Overlook

Michael Connelly, Author, Len Cariou, Read by , read by Len Cariou. Hachette Audio $29.98 (0p) ISBN 978-1-60024-000-3

Reviewers were somewhat abrupt about perennial bestseller Connelly’s 13th Harry Bosch novel: “a quick read, almost half the length of Connelly’s previous novels,” said one; “a tasty hors d’oeuvre” quipped another. How smart and fortunate for listeners that Hachette Audio has turned to veteran Connelly reader Len Cariou for some added weight. Cariou catches all the strength and sadness behind Bosch’s minimal dialogue and is also perfect as Harry’s LAPD colleagues, female and male. He is especially good at bringing to frightening life the real villains: the federal investigators, headed by a former Bosch lover, FBI agent Rachel Walling. The Feds are trying to take over the case of a body found on an overlook near Mulholland Drive—a doctor who turns out to have had access to radioactive materials stored at hospitals throughout L.A. All praise to Hachette for getting Cariou to help us through it. The production boasts original music by Frank Morgan. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 2). (May)
