Casey Stengel grave
Excerpt from The Black Box (Photo by Wendy Werris) Bosch spent an hour roaming around Forest Lawn while waiting to pick up sandwiches at Giamela’s. Out of respect for his former partner Frankie Sheehan, he started at Casey Stengel’s last resting spot and then took the celebrity tour, passing stones etched with names like Gable and Lombard, Disney, Flynn, Ladd and Nat King Cole as he made his way to the Good Shepherd section of the vast cemetery. Once there, he paid respects to the father he never knew. The stone said J. Michael Haller, Father and Husband, but Bosch knew that he was never accounted for in that family equation.
