Explore the scene of the crime

Publishers and authors are doing all sorts of neat things to publicize their books online these days. Every once in a while, we'll try to bring these cool promotional gimmicks to your attention.

I thought recent readers of Michael Connelly's book The Overlook might be interested in this intriguing interactive crime scene map and quiz that enhances and tests your knowledge of the story. The tagline for this feature is "The Case That Never Leaves the Page Jumps Off It" and that's a pretty fair summary of how the book has been brought to life online.

We'd love to hear whether you like these kinds of online extensions of the book, and also how you did on the quiz. Have fun!
