Detective Harry Bosch is working on one of the hottest murder investigations in Hollywood. The body of a movie producer has been found stuffed into the trunk of his Rolls, and to Harry the evidence seems to say it all: it's "trunk music", a Mafia production. The money trail leads from L.A. to Las Vegas, and Harry's determined to get to the bottom of things--but he's making some powerful enemies along the way.
"Characters and situations which generate a sullen, sexual heat. Powerful atmospherics. Irresistible from page one."
Philip Oakes, Literary Review, February 1997
"In a relatively short period of time, Connelly, a prize-winning journalist who was a police reporter for this paper, has established himself as one of the new masters of the crime genre. 'Trunk Music' is his sixth novel, the fifth in a series about LAPD homicide detective Hieronymous 'Harry' Bosch....The Bosch books are a clever combination of police procedural and the literary equivalent of film noir, with Connelly's experience on the crime beat helping to create an ultra-realistic, dark and shadowy system of justice, mired in corruption and politics, in which the disenfrachised, disenchanted Bosch tries vainly to light one little candle."
