The only #copsong book I have in my collection. I love them but normally check them out of the library.

While the title refers to a body in the truck, Michael Connelley, a big fan of jazz, often mentions music in his books, especially Frank Morgan whose "Lullaby" is Harry Bosch's favorite song.

Conisdering one of #MyFavoriteThings is Monsters, I should really cross this off my TBR already. *sigh*

Part #copsong, part apocalypse tale. "What's the point in solving murders if we're all gonna die soon anyway?" A fascinating and alarming question. (Still tbr, but I've heard good things!)

@Cinfhen @vivastory

vivastory I loved this trilogy. That reminds me to check the mail tomorrow for his latest one (it was my January botm) 11mo
Cinfhen I picked this one up on #kindleDailyDeal a few weeks back and I really liked 11mo
readordierachel @vivastory That sounds like a good one! 11mo
readordierachel @Cinfhen Good to hear! I've been meaning to read that one. 11mo

#CopSong is a tough hashtag since I don‘t read that many crime novels. However, I did fall into the hype of The Woman in the Window last year, so there is at least one crime novel on my shelf. Admittedly, not my favourite.


vivastory Nice picture 👍 11mo
Pruzy @vivastory Thanks! 11mo
Cinfhen I‘ve picked this up twice and put it down twice ... but I‘m determined to finish it ( another book in #hibernation) 🐻 11mo
Pruzy @Cinfhen Haha! Seriously, you‘re not missing out if you don‘t finish it! 11mo

#copsong has me thinking about this amazingly morbid book I found on #bookoutlet!! Back in the nineteenth and early twentieth century NYC cops used to dispose of crime scene photos in the Hudson River when they were no longer needed. These photos were forgotten in an old building, lucky for us!, and therefore survived to be published in this book 🔪

Mitch I‘ve been following the blog of these photos online. Morbidly fascinating! 11mo
emilyhaldi @Mitch oohhhh I need to look into that!! 11mo
vivastory I need this! Have you heard of 11mo

emilyhaldi No @vivastory but thanks to you I read the blurb and now I‘m dying to know more!! 11mo
emilyhaldi @vivastory oh! And just saw your second book rec. I need it!! Have you read either?? 11mo
vivastory I've read both. They both become a bit repetitive, but are definitely worth checking out. Probably best to dip into them. 11mo
Cinfhen Only you & maybe @Meredith3 would find THIS book 😂🤣 11mo
Meredith3 This is the coolest 💀 11mo
Reviewsbylola Stacked both of those @vivastory!! 11mo
Reviewsbylola I‘ve read this one. An even more horrifying one is 11mo

Lieutenant Eve Dallas with the NYPSD is on the trail of a sniper who has just killed three people at Central Park‘s ice skating rink. #copsong #musicalnewyear

Cinfhen Ooohh!!! That makes me nervous 😬 11mo
Bklover I used to read this series and got away from it. I may have to get back into this. Sounds intriguing! 11mo

Darktown: A Novel | Thomas Mullen

I pretty much bought this book for the endpapers, but it turned out to be really good. 😂

The Atlanta Police Department has just added their first black police officers to the force, but segregation is still rampant, even within the force, and police corruption is a problem.

#musicalnewyear #copsong

Cinfhen I keep almost buying this from #BookOutlet but it‘s still on the #highend...anything over $5 on that website is too expensive 🤑😜😂 11mo
DGRachel I loved this book. I bought the sequel, but it‘s still TBR. 😳 11mo
Reviewsbylola 😂😂😂 I‘m the same way. @Cinfhen 11mo

Reviewsbylola I plan on buying the sequel someday. @DGRachel 11mo
Christine11 I thought this one was great too - need to get around to reading the sequel! 😊 11mo
TrishB Enjoyed this one 👍🏻 11mo
vivastory Those are great end papers! I keep meaning to read this one. 11mo

The Kept Woman | Karin Slaughter
post image

#MusicalNewYear #day13 #CopSong My favourite literary cop is definitely Will Trent. He‘s flawed with a horrible backstory, but he‘s very much the nice guy, to his detriment where his nuts ex wife is concerned. When he falls in love with Dr Sara Linton, Angie goes on a psychotic stalker rampage & even then Will tries to work things out peacefully before finally seeing her as the bitch queen she is. He‘s also the nice guy to his GBI partner Faith.

Kappadeemom I really, really dislike Angie 😡 11mo
vivastory I read this in one day. Really enjoyed it. 11mo
Lizpixie @Kappadeemom me too. I don‘t know who‘s worse, Lena or Angie. Both have made Sara‘s life a living hell, one causing the death of her husband then the near death of his son, the other stalking her both online & in real life, leaving disgusting messages on her car & breaking into her home. Slaughter really knows how to write psychotic women! 11mo
Lizpixie @vivastory I wait every year for her books then read them in one sitting too. I keep saying I‘m gonna take my time but every year the same happens. Which leaves me waiting for another year!🤦🏻‍♀️ 11mo
