Readathon: Hour 17 The Onion Field (1979). Crime scene

I've been thinking about the challenge question posed back in Hour 7 or 8:  "What music fits the book you're reading?"  Since Ian Campbell (played by Ted Danson in the film version, see above) played the bagpipes as a hobby, that would definitely fit.   I also thought of Johnny Cash's "Murder" songs or something bleak like Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska.  Now that I'm at the part in the book in which the trial is in progress, I'm thinking badly played carnival music on an out-of-tune hurdy-gurdy organ.

The Cardinals won Game 3.  I'm going to go outside and sit in the sun for a while and have a coffee with Val.

Excellent multi-tasking! Now I'm freaking myself out thinking about herdy-gerdy carnival music. It's too late and too quiet for such thoughts. Keep reading!
