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.

I loved Harry...such a tortured soul.
I love listening to Dick Hill. His voice is so soothing and easy on the ear.
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....
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
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.
One of the guidelines for writing a review is NO "Harsh, profane or discriminatory language." But this book is full of that language. I'm not a prude but this book doesn't come close to being as interesting as "City of Bones". In my estimation it makes Susie Bright appear to be a Sunday School teacher by comparison. Maybe that's why the lower price at introduction?
Have been following Bosh ever since I watched series on tv and was hooked . The books are very well written with just enough detail as if you were actually watching the plot unfold .
I loved the twists turns and resolution of this story I usually listen as I drive and look forward to continuing the story
"Another good listening experience."
Connelly's Bosch novels have never disappointed me, and this is no exception. Good plotting and characterisation, and beautifully read, as usual.
"Another great novel by Michael Connelly."
Not much to say, I've read/listen to the preceding Harry Bosch novels and found them easy, entertaining and, at times, exciting.
Wonderfully performed by Dick Hill, this is solid and engrossing. If you like Bosch or detective fiction in general, this is for you.
"Great story that was well read."
The book had a good plot with plenty of twists and enjoyed every minute listening to it. I really love Michael Connelly books and think they are all great. This one was particularly well read by Dick Hill. He brings the characters to life and I like the way he narrated the story.
An expertly written book that you just cant guess only thing is i would recommend reading the books in order as there is a small thead running thtough each dont make my mistake. Although they truly are great books and read by a very talented narrator.
Exciting story from start to end, twisting and turning to keep the reader gripped to the end
