Just another terrific Connelly mystery nove/police procedural. In this one a body found in a car trunk above the Hollywood Bowl leads an investigation back to Vegas, and aback to Los Angeles. Classic Connolly. Wonderful descriptions of LA, and in this one of Vegas (the seamy side).

I'm very biased in Connelly's favor because I'm an Angeleno. But he's generally great, too. Also, reading his books, going all the way back to Black Echo, is like reading a history of the LAPD over the last twenty or so years. He really captures the historical shift in the Department from its pre-Rodney Kind days, through the Christopher Commission, and into the current era. In the end that may be one of the lasting legacy of his work. But in the end they are just ripping good reads, almost every single one.
