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.
Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

Trunk Music is one of the earlier Harry Bosch books. Harry once again runs afoul of the LAPD and the FBI and once again is investigated by the Internal Affairs Division of the department. The book is fast paced with lots of plot twists and turns, mobsters and cops gone bad. Bosch builds and strengthens his relationship with Jerry and Kiz, his two recurring partners, bonds with Grace Billet his supervisor, and gets married to his early flame Eleanor Wish. Along the way, Harry solves the crime and helps the FBI solve theirs. A great way to spend 13 hours.
Hopelessly addicted to Audio Books! I started listening as a distraction to the aggravation of driving, now I listen all the time :)
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)
This is my first Connelly audiobook... I have previously read and enjoyed 'Harry Bosch' so I was drawn to this early title and I wasn't disappointed.
Another great storyline that hooked me and kept me wanting to listen.
Really enjoyed the narration and will definitely search out more 'Connelly' and/or 'Hill' audiobooks.
It's a great listen, starting to really enjoy hanging out with Harry Bosch. There is plenty of suspense, twists and turns and surprises. It's totally entertaining criminal thriller. Michael Connelly is among the best authors of this genre, right up there with Lee Child. Though I'm going to say that Lee Child just does such an amazing job with the Reacher character - Reacher's little idiosynchrasies, turns of phrase and that he's a pretty likeable character. Harry Bosch is not as well portrayed and he's a little more cynical, I think a little older too -- however I am loving this series.
Reading these books in order is the way to go, as an old acquaintance shows up in this episode. Another murder case for Harry, that he seemingly is doing a good job on, goes anywhere but the right direction, and Harry finds himself in another jam. I just love all the twists and turns that Harry's life takes, as he just tries his hardest to do a good job. He has a new Lt. to deal with, and his old partner Edgar is on the case. All and all, it's a good read with a few surprises along the way, the ending is no exception. Dick Hill does his usual outstanding narrative, so put the earbuds in, and enjoy.
While I really enjoy the cases, I love the way each book delves into the life of Harry more. He feels like a real person - so many details, and realistic behaviors... Ver well planned and written.
I started with book 1 of the Bosch series and all have been good buys. This one is a notch above the rest. Seemed to flow well with good action and only a few lag times. Enough twists to make it interesting. Usually by book five in a series the quality starta to take a down turn. A formula usually is glaringly obvious and within one hour you are ready to pack it up. Not with this series. Connelly has a unique talent to make each book stand alone and quickly get you involved in the action. A rare find in my experience. Looking forward to the next Bosch book. Highly recommend.
Yes, if you are a fan of Harry Bosch, you would love this book. It is full of his character and style of investigation.
I am always a fan of Michael Connelly, especially of detective Bosch series. I have not yet found one that I didn't like. Great story and the characters.
Love it and his voice fits with all the characters that he developed in this book.
This is my favorite Bosch except for Echo Park. Good story, great characters. Dick Hill, the narrator, personifies Bosch for me. I think he is an amazing actor and he really *makes* the book. I wish he narrated all of the books in the series....
"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.
As usual Michael Connelly proves he is the master. Trunk Music is a great book and Harry Bosch is a brilliant character. Narration is also top class. All in all i really enjoyed this book.
