Following on the heels of his extraordinary New York Times bestseller, The Poet, Edgar Award-winning author Michael Connelly brings you Trunk Music, his most electrifying Harry Bosch novel to date-a taut, complex thrill ride that confirms Connelly's standing as one of the premier crime writers of our day.
Detective Harry Bosch is back on the job and working on the hottest murder investigation 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. And, as if he wasn't knee-deep in trouble already, he's about to take the biggest gamble of all-on love. Mixing business with pleasure: it's the kind of parlay that could drive Harry to distraction...and into an early grave. Vegas-style.
LAPD Homicide detective Bosch is back from an involuntary administrative leave just in time for the bodies to start turning up. When he finds hints of an mob hit but can't interest the organized crime unit in the murder, Bosch has to take the investigation into his own hands in a this hard-boiled tale full of sharp turns. Fans of Michael Connelly's excellent, The Poet, will go wild for this even better addition to the Harry Bosch series.
