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.

    "My favorite so far"

    This is my favorite of the Bosch books so far.

    Bosch runs into an old flame and a new murder mystery. Stakes get raised. Fingers are pointed. Careers and loves are in jeopardy.

    "Beginning of the Best Bosch books"

    I've been mesmerized by the Harry Bosch series and also digged the Amazon Prime video series too which was based on Trunk Music and Last Coyote. I started with the recent books from the last 5 yrs and they were awesome but then decided to start from the 1st book The Black Echo and progress through.

    Connelly's style and character development of Bosch has of course changed and evolved in the series. I really enjoyed Trunk Music as it seems to be a turning point where there's less time spent on regrets, personal angst, flashbacks and more time spent on the story, the cases, the characters, venues in L.A., historical events. Seems like Connelly finished the character development in the previous books and let him totally flourish. I also loved there were several Bosch allies and author spent some good time on their dialogue instead of just one man and his lone quest to solve the crime. This book has more sustained and dramatic entertainment value and I totally see why it was a great choice for the Amazon series. I highly recommend Trunk Music.

    Reading allows me to travel through time; to visit the world's unique and stunning places. To become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    Story
    "Connelly + Hill = Excellent Bosch Grit."

    Book 5 sees Bosch develop relationships with his partners, boss and lover. He continues to be a stubborn, loyal, gritty, and dark man who grabs onto his investigation and won't let go. He makes people respect him even when they don't want to. He can be disrespectful, but somehow he comes out of it all still likable. And, so I really enjoyed the development of these relationships. I feel it highlights him and gives him subtlety and shadow.

    Dick Hill is superb, as always. He reads Bosch with a nuance and inflection that gives the character so much emotion and highlights his intelligence.

    "I had wanted some a continuum"

    It is close to being that, but just didn't quite make it for me. I loved the previous mystery, but this one kept nagging at me -- specifically with the improbable and perhaps not so fully understood -- reunion with a woman he had known five years ago. I kept thinking she was in on the whole thing. Heck, maybe in a subsequent book, I'll find out she was. I couldn't quite focus on this. I listen through the night due to physical huge injury that keeps me waking up. This book just didn't motivate me to back up my mp3 player and find the right place to continue listening. I think I heard it all, but sigh, I felt that the end was impossible, even though it is a mystery and the ending is to be unexpected. I wanted the next book to pick up where Coyote left off. I guess I need to take a small break from Connelly. I'll be back though, because I know of noone else that provides such a good character, except all those that I have already read!

    "Just don't get comfortable."

    You think you know which way it's going, but you're wrong. Bosch repeatedly gets the carpet pulled out from underneath him, and he keeps getting up. The discouraging thing is that it takes very little effort, just moments, for the bad guys to commit some heinous crime but it takes extreme excruciating effort to bring them to justice.
