City of Bones

City of Bones by Michael Connelly is the 8th in the "Harry" Bosch series. This book won the 2003 Anthony Award.

from the back of the book:

On New Year's Day, a dog finds a bone in the Hollywood Hills - and unearths a murder committed more than twenty years earlier. It's a cold case, but for Detective Harry Bosch, it stirs up memories of his childhood as an orphan. He can't let it go. As the investigation takes Bosch deeper into the past, a beautiful rookie cop brings him alive in the present. No official warning can break them apart - or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a few hard turns. Suddenly all of L.A. is in an uproar, and Bosch, fighting to keep control, is driven to the brink of an unimaginable decision.

There is a lot of music mentioned throughout this book, as there was in the last mystery I read. Was this a fad in the early 2000's? The main character likes jazz and plays Clifford Brown and Miles Davis on the stereo. Here's "So What" from the "Kind of Blue" album:

I liked the book and could do worse than pick up others in the series just to have around. I've read Blood Work and The Poet by this author, but this is my first Detective Bosch book.
