Description

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.

Critiques

"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)

Cood Connelly

This one is typical Connelly fare, which means it's a good book.

A conclusion and finale was a little unerwhelming, so I hold it to 4 stars instead of 5.

Dick Hill does a very good job as narrator (as usual)

Definitely recommended.

Another Harry Bosch novel

I'm reviewing a few of the over 350 in my Audible library that I haven't previously reviewed. Trunk Music, Book 5 in the series, is an excellent modern detective suspense mystery. It is the last series novel that Dick Hill narrated. I wish author Connelly had stayed with Hill until Titus Weaver started narrating with Book 17.

Great Story - Good Narrator

This is my first Connelly audiobook... I have previously read and enjoyed 'Harry Bosch' so I was drawn to this early title and I wasn't disappointed.
Another great storyline that hooked me and kept me wanting to listen.
Really enjoyed the narration and will definitely search out more 'Connelly' and/or 'Hill' audiobooks.

Incomparable Bosch

I've discovered I really don't remember any of the early Bosch mysteries I read some 15 plus years ago. So it is a joy to be reintroduced to Connelly's genius in the police procedural genre.

It's funny, but I don't identify with Bosch at all, but I love everything about him. He's a loner, loyal, cantankerous, gritty and the most persistent detective I've ever encountered in fiction. He commands respect, even from the readers.

The mysteries are stellar, extremely realistic. Trunk Music is just a great novel on its on.

Once again, Dick Hill does a great job.

Great Listen... I loved it!

If you are a Bosch series lover, you will love this novel as well. A good plot with lots of interesting happenings with twists and turns as usual. I agree with another reviewer who said that the first five novels are Connelly's best. I give a lot of the praise for the high rating of the first five novels to Narrator, Dick Hill who brings the books alive with lots of inflection to differentiate the between the characters and also uses other tricks of the trade to make the novels sounds like what the listener might hear in their head if they were actually reading the book..ie: news flashes over a TV or radio takes on a different sound like it could really be coming over a radio or TV..By the end of the book, Bosch is more endearing. I would recommend this book. I am on my second listen.

Another Harry Bosch winner

Trunk Music is one of the earlier Harry Bosch books. Harry once again runs afoul of the LAPD and the FBI and once again is investigated by the Internal Affairs Division of the department. The book is fast paced with lots of plot twists and turns, mobsters and cops gone bad. Bosch builds and strengthens his relationship with Jerry and Kiz, his two recurring partners, bonds with Grace Billet his supervisor, and gets married to his early flame Eleanor Wish. Along the way, Harry solves the crime and helps the FBI solve theirs. A great way to spend 13 hours.

Harry's life takes a turn

Reading these books in order is the way to go, as an old acquaintance shows up in this episode. Another murder case for Harry, that he seemingly is doing a good job on, goes anywhere but the right direction, and Harry finds himself in another jam. I just love all the twists and turns that Harry's life takes, as he just tries his hardest to do a good job. He has a new Lt. to deal with, and his old partner Edgar is on the case. All and all, it's a good read with a few surprises along the way, the ending is no exception. Dick Hill does his usual outstanding narrative, so put the earbuds in, and enjoy.

totally engrossing

It's a great listen, starting to really enjoy hanging out with Harry Bosch. There is plenty of suspense, twists and turns and surprises. It's totally entertaining criminal thriller. Michael Connelly is among the best authors of this genre, right up there with Lee Child. Though I'm going to say that Lee Child just does such an amazing job with the Reacher character - Reacher's little idiosynchrasies, turns of phrase and that he's a pretty likeable character. Harry Bosch is not as well portrayed and he's a little more cynical, I think a little older too -- however I am loving this series.

Bosch on the Case

Harry Bosch is back on the job, nothing hanging over his head as in three of the prior four entries in Michael Connelly's police procedural series, the start of a series that is now up to 20+ volumes. So this one is not personal -- it's a straightforward murder case.

Of course Bosch wouldn't be Bosch if he didn't eventually run afoul of the LAPD, other police departments, internal affairs, the FBI and the mob. And Bosch wouldn't be Bosch if he didn't eventually untangle the whole mess and uncover unexpected secrets, the best of which, as per Connelly's MO, come after you think (as he does) that the case has been solved.

Trunk Music is good, but the best Bosches are the ones where it is indeed personal. There is a side plot where he reconnects with an old flame, and that relationship will form the basis of later entries. At the end of the day, this is a boilerplate police procedural solved by your hard-boiled misunderstood cop, but Connelly, Bosch, and narrator Dick Hill make it work.

About what we've come to expect from Bosch

Harry Bosch is once again outside the mainstream in law enforcement,His brash style guarantees that he won't get the willing cooperation of fellow law enforcement officers and agencies with similar goals. Harry does manage to work closely with two partners and a boss, so he's not quite the loner he's been in other stories in the series. His love interests also take front seat in this novel. Dick Hill does a masterful job with the narration and the absolutely ludicrous coincidence written into the plot at the very end of the story doesn't detract as much as I though it would. Overall, a pleasant listen.

Nicht der beste Bosch, aber hörenswert

Hört man die Bosch-Serie in der Reihenfolge ab Band 1, ist diese Folge die erste, von der ich nicht restlos begeistert war. Die Handlung hat ein paar Längen. Der Sprecher aber ist wie immer großartig.
