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)

Michael Connelly does Harry Bosch Perfectly

Where does Trunk Music: Harry Bosch Series, Book 5 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoy the Harry Bosch series. How the previous books of the series play a part in the current book is good. It brings the books together; but if you missed one of the previous books, you don't feel like you are missing anything.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Trunk Music: Harry Bosch Series, Book 5?

The who did it surprised me.

Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

Dick Hill is one of my FAVORITE narrator, his performance of Harry Bosch is perfect. Dick Hill, in my opinion, is Harry Bosch. I am having trouble adjusting to a new Narrator in the later books.

As Good as Any Harry Bosch Novel

Trunk Music: Bosch Series, Book 5, Michael Connolly, narrated by Dick Hill, tells of Harry Bosch being tricked into a plot solution blaming the Las Vegas mafia, who in turn ends up intermixed with a deification of an FBI plan leaving Bosch being blamed by the Mafia and FBI for acts he never intentionally undertook. If this is not complex enough he once again encounters a former lover (who finished serving her jail term) and has to face the fact that as an officer of the law he is forbidden from associating with ex-felons.

Now this may sound like too complicated a plot to read. It is not. With the to be expected genius of Michael Connolly, the story is told sensibly and with interest. If you want a detective story to pick up, hide away from the rest of the world and enjoy its plot surprises this is a good gumshoe story to read.

I learned one thing more. This is one of the stories converted by Amazon for the Bosch television series. The content is similar but the stories are distinct.

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.
