The Overlook by Michael Connelly

From the author's website: Harry Bosch is called out to investigate a murder that may have chilling consequences for national security. A doctor with access to a dangerous radioactive substance is found murdered on the overlook above the Mulholland Dam. Retracing his steps, Harry learns that a large quantity of radioactive cesium was stolen shortly before the doctor's death. With the cesium in unknown hands, Harry fears the murder could be part of a terrorist plot to poison a major American city.

This was a good, basic murder mystery. It is the 13th in a series of 16 so I was missing just a little of the main character, Harry Bosch's history:)! It didn't interfere with my enjoying the plot - there was enough information for me to stay with the story withut any difficulty. But I didn't like him (thought Harry was an arrogant jerk actually) and perhaps that's because I didn't know his history. Nothing really stood out in thsi book making me want to continue the series, however I liked it well enough that if another comes along, I'll listen to it.

I've only read one Harry Bosch book and I enjoyed it. I'd like to go back and read more of the series now.
