BOOK REVIEW

THE OVERLOOK by Michael Connelly
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 22, 2007

"A beautifully stripped-down case that makes up in tension and velocity what it lacks in amplitude. Serialization hasn't hurt Connelly any more than it did Charles Dickens, who's cited at several key points."

BOOK REVIEW
