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.

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

    "Good but somehow I keep putting it down"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. A better editor perhaps. There were glaring weak points I would've like it better without.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Connelly? Why or why not?

    Of course. I like his work generally.


    Any additional comments?

    Harry is a little bit forced. If you like your cops jaded and willing to rough up suspects without remorse to get results, Harry is your man. It bothered me that when he is suspected of planting evidence everyone was so surprised, though. I think now my difficulty finishing this one is the rampant corruption everywhere. I think I fear reality is really like this and it breaks my heart.

    What did you like best about this story?

    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.

    Yes, if you are a fan of Harry Bosch, you would love this book. It is full of his character and style of investigation.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Connelly? Why or why not?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Love it and his voice fits with all the characters that he developed in this book.

    "Excellent installment in the Harry Bosch series"

    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....

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    Story
    "Tough, Smart, Tight --- YEAH!"

    Hmmmm…. Connelly has braided a lace-like plot… No… no… that’s too delicate, even though it captures the complexity… Connelly has woven a net-like plot… Yeah, that’s manly enough but misses the continual twists and whorls. Okay… suppose you had cigar stained lace… used for a whiskey coaster… You know strong stuff, maybe bourbon.

    Anyway… The story twists but the ends all align and the characters each fit into the design – net-captured, y’know what I’m sayin’? And Dick Hill creates the ensemble so that they swagger around in … in… Ahah! Knit the lace out of tough netting, riddle it with a stray bullet, and color the thing dark bloody noir. And if that’s what you want from a hard-boiled Harry Bosch novel… Get this one. It’ll tie up your imagination :-)

    ""Trunk Music" out of tune"

    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?

    "not bad, but not as good as other Harry Bosch book"

    the story telling was good. Dick Hill is a classic reader. Not a bad story, just didn't like it as well as others.

    A great combination Bosch and Hill. I love the series and am up to book 9. Very hard to put my phone down and makes the drive to and from work easier.
