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.

Read this many years ago, but decided to start at the beginning of the Bosch books and do it again. Amazing how little I remembered, and how the story linked to other Bosch books. Just what I wanted - to do them in order. Always a great story!

If you like mysteries and you like being lead through a maze of thoughts, diabolical plans, and uncertainties, you'll enjoy this book!
Park yourself with ample coffee and a comfortable seat and enjoy.
Keeps your attention so .many things going on, wow quite ending. Fast moving at times need to go back after interruptions
A sign language interpreter who finds herself in the car a LOT, traveling from assignment to assignment. Audible saved me from road rage! :)
Fully developed characters and rich story line. Connelly nails it with the story line once again, but beyond that, the beautiful TELLING of the story is what truly makes this a winner as have the last four in the series. Dick Hill's ability to do character voices and accents adds so much depth to the story. I don't know if it was Brilliance Audio's production team or Dick Hill, himself, who came up with the idea of adding sound effects to let the listener know someone was at the other end of the phone or on the police radio and such, but "brilliant" doesn't even begin to describe how it enriches the experience! I've listened to many books that I've loved when reading but not-so-much when listening; this one is alive in every possible way thanks to Connelly, Brilliance, and especially, Hill. Kudos, guys! I loved it.
I'm nervous about switching narrators now that I've finally trusted one so much for five books! I'm about to embark on Book 6 with a new narrator. Please, don't disappoint!
This was another great Harry B story... Well telegraphed twists which although unpredictable, made sense when revealed.
But where is book 6? Why do I have to now jump to book7? And with a new narrator to boot!!
This was a classic Harry Bosch story with nothing special to make it great nor boring..
I did not care for the performance by Dick Hill...it seemed flat, and he kept pronouncing Bosch as Bawsh which was annoying.
Overall a good listen if you have nothing else but I wouldn't rush out to get it if you use your credits or $$ as carefully as I do.
"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.
"Very good series. Well worth a listen."
I really like the Harry Bosch series. The main character is your archetypal loner who struggles with relationships - both romantic and professional; a maverick railing against the establishment but in my opinion he isn't an antihero, rather a deeply flawed man who somehow manages to stay true to his own moral compass and I think that is ultimately what earns the respect of his peers.
I have read books 1-5 so far. I think the plot lines are very good with lots of twists and turns. In short everything I like in a whodunit.
"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
Another brilliant book by Michael Connelly. Can wait for the next Harry Bosch Book
"Great series until he changed the narrator!!"
I love these books, I have read all of the 4 first ones, they have changed the narrator from Dick Hill to a guy called Peter. He is not as good, he says everything in a weird way. I listened to it for about 5 minutes and returned it. It is a shame as I love the series but I miss Dick.
"Another classic Bosch..."
Though cliché, the characterisation is so good that you can empathise with heroes and villains alike. I also felt this one (I am working my way through all the Harry Bosch novels in order) had a more complex and engaging plot than one or two previous ones.
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.
I have enjoyed reading the earlier Bosch novels. The story and narration of this 5th outing for Harry Bosch is excellent.
"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.
