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.

Critic Reviews

"Dick Hill is well versed in Bosch's style after two audiobooks in the series. Hill delivers the squad room banter and the interviews with suspects and witnesses with perfection.... Bosch is immensely likeable, and Hill defines his character memorably." (AudioFile)

Driving with Bosch

Listening to a good book makes a 2 hour journey seem sooo much shorter!
The twists and turns in solving a case keep my mind busy trying to figure out the puzzle.
I was delighted that Harry and Eleanor got married. Two lonely people finding someone to share their lives.

Best Entry Yet

I throughly enjoyed this entry to the series. The story was well done and had some twists you don’t see coming. Narration was typical Dick Hill quality. Give it a try...

Cliché dialogue

Fairly good story but rather convoluted hard to follow in places. I know tough guys cuss I know tough cops swear I know X-Service people cuss but geez after a while even the cussing gets to be cliché I just wish there were another way that you could relay the toughness of these people.

Another great Bosch story

If you could sum up Trunk Music: Harry Bosch Series, Book 5 in three words, what would they be?

This one is the basis for much of season 2 of the Amazon series.

What other book might you compare Trunk Music: Harry Bosch Series, Book 5 to and why?

I think it is best to listen to these in order, from the beginning.

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

Very strong performance. Good at portraying many characters. In some of the later books, Titus Welliver, who plays Bosch in the Amazon Video series, also does a good job of narrating.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The whole book is riveting. Very engaging.

Any additional comments?

I love all the Michael Connelly, especially in audio when I am driving. They pass the time very well.

Well done

This is one of the better of the early Harry Bosch series, with a complex but credible plot, many twists and turns, and constant action. The narrator couldn't be better. He's a true actor, adding flavor and nuance to each character. I couldn't put the book down.

Fantastic!

Another well spun yarn! Fun listening after watching Bosch second season. I'm hooked on the series. Dick Hill has made the first five stories come alive! Will be interesting to hear the narrator change with Angela Flight Book 6.
