Trunk Music: Harry Bosch Series, Book 5

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.

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.

    "A fun, suspenseful listen"

    Trunk Music was a fun, suspenseful book. The story had lots of twists and turns which kept the reader guessing. The performer made it a good listen.

    "Connelly consistently delivers with Bosch series"

    I've been a fan of the Bosch series for a while. As many others in this series, it is an enjoyable, entertaining mystery with very good naration. There are a few references to events from past books in the series but it is not necessary to have read/listened to them to enjoy this book.

    "Not the best Harry Bosch but it was good."

    This was a good listen but at times it became predictable and boring. Overall, I liked it.

    "great story"
    What made the experience of listening to Trunk Music: Harry Bosch Series, Book 5 the most enjoyable?

    I have enjoyed all of the Bosch series equally as well


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

    really never pay that much attention to the reader, just the story. I can say he does a good job with different voices


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "boring start"

    I loved the other Michael Connolly books which had intelligence and pretty good writing. The plot here is very dry, and for the first 2-3 hours of listening, the body is still in the truck and nothing complex has happened. Also, the reading is flat perhaps because the writing and plot are flat. I prefer Len Cariou as narrator.

    Easy, the man is back, Harry Bosch is back, bigger and better.

    "I'm big fan of Harry Bosch"

    I'm big fan of Harry Bosch series, so it's difficult to find a book that disapoints me. And this one was again superb. A story about loneliness of police work, departamental politics plays role here too. Gentle, nice twists. Did I say I'm a big fan of Harry Bosch series?

    "Trunk Music - Good book"

    I started listening at the beginning of the series of Harry Bosch books. This is another good Connelly book read by Dick Hill, whom I like and prefer over the other readers. I love that Harry Bosch is always doing what he needs to do to get to the bottom of things.

    "great listen as usual"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Trunk Music to be better than the print version?

    the advantage of audio is the ability to listen when i could not read, ie in the car. the advantage of reading is making sure you get the text, the ability to re-read. i enjoy both. however if the reader is really good i look forward to listening.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes. story is tight and the reader is great.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he knows the story and delivers it


    Any additional comments?

    every thing Connelly, James Lee Burke or John Sanford writes is worth reading or listening too. and all of their readers are excellent. i can't wait for each new book and have pretty much listened to and or read them all.
