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!)
#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.
#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 🔪
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 #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.
