4.0 out of 5 stars Find the cesium by solving a murder, 15 May 2008
This review is from: The Overlook (Harry Bosch) (Mass Market Paperback)
A radiotherapist is shot to death on an overlook near his home. It looks like another "ordinary" homicide until it is discovered that right before his death he stole 26 ampoules of radioactive cesium from one of the hospitals where he worked. The cesium would be exchanged against his wife, who is kidnapped. All lights start flashing at the FBI, especially when a witness thinks he might have heard someone calling "Allah" at the moment of the shot. Harry Bosch is not only up against a murderer, but also against special terrorism units from both the FBI and his own LAPD. His mission is to find that killer, which he is sure will lead to the cesium, the mission of the terrorism units is to find the cesium, forget about the killer. In the end both are a little bit right and the solution is much more mundane, but also more sad, than one would initially expect.

Another one in the Harry Bosch series with Harry having yet another partner, but teaming up with the FBI agent Rachel Walling that we already met in previous books. Not the most nerve-wracking book of the series, but a solid piece of detective writing again.
