Publisher's Summary

Back on the job after an involuntary leave of absence, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch is ready for a challenge. But his first case is a little more than he bargained for. It starts with the body of a Hollywood producer in the trunk of a Rolls-Royce, shot twice in the head at close range - what looks like "trunk music", a Mafia hit. But the LAPD's organized crime unit is curiously uninterested, and when Harry follows a trail of gambling debts to Las Vegas, the case suddenly becomes more complex - and much more personal. A rekindled romance with an old girlfriend opens new perspectives on the murder, and he begins to glimpse a shocking triangle of corruption and collusion. Yanked off the case, Harry himself is soon the one being investigated. But only a bullet can stop Harry when he's searching for the truth.

Critic Reviews

"Dick Hill is well versed in Bosch's style after two audiobooks in the series. Hill delivers the squad room banter and the interviews with suspects and witnesses with perfection.... Bosch is immensely likeable, and Hill defines his character memorably." ( AudioFile)

Cood Connelly

This one is typical Connelly fare, which means it's a good book.

A conclusion and finale was a little unerwhelming, so I hold it to 4 stars instead of 5.

Dick Hill does a very good job as narrator (as usual)

Definitely recommended.

Incomparable Bosch

I've discovered I really don't remember any of the early Bosch mysteries I read some 15 plus years ago. So it is a joy to be reintroduced to Connelly's genius in the police procedural genre.

It's funny, but I don't identify with Bosch at all, but I love everything about him. He's a loner, loyal, cantankerous, gritty and the most persistent detective I've ever encountered in fiction. He commands respect, even from the readers.

The mysteries are stellar, extremely realistic. Trunk Music is just a great novel on its on.

Once again, Dick Hill does a great job.

This is just so good

I was was looking for a replacement for Jack Reacher/Lee Child books as I had read them all and I came across Michael Connelly. This is the fifth book I've read so far and each one is getting better and better not the first one wasn't excellent because it was but this book was very good if you like the Bosch TV series and/or Lee Child as an author and are looking for a good series to get your teeth/ears(?) stuck into then Michael Connolly is easily his peer and well worth checking out

Good story well read

As per usual, Michael Connolly's novel is well written and has great characters and storyline. The characters were well defined by the narrator.
