Chateau Marmont Balconies
Excerpt from The Drop (Photo by Terrill Lee Lankford) Marmont Lane was steep and narrow as it curved around the hotel. They came to the death scene at the northwestern corner of the hotel. The forensic team had put up a canopy over the scene to guard against visual intrusion from media choppers and the houses that terraced the hills behind the hotel. Before stepping under the canopy Bosch looked up the side of the hotel. He saw a man in a suit leaning over the balustrade, looking down from a balcony on the top floor.
