    Trunk Music is Michael Connelly's sixth novel and the fifth of those books to feature LA homicide detective Harry Bosch It remains my favorite of Connelly's books and my favorite of all police procedurals an inspiration to me and I assume to a good many other authors who write crime fictionHarry has been serving time on an administrative leave which resulted from actions he took in The Last Coyote He's just returned to the Homicide Desk when he's called to the scene of an apparent murder Tony Aliso a Hollywood producer who turns out low rent titillating straight to DVD movies has been found shot to death and stuffed into the trunk of his Rolls Royce which has been left in a wooded area in the Hollywood Hills While Harry was on leave the homicide teams were reorganized Each team now consists of three detectives rather than two and so in addition to his long time partner Jerry Edgar Bosch is now also teamed with a female African American named Kizmin Rider As the senior detective Harry is the team leader and must direct the effort to find Aliso's killerThis is Harry's first crack at a homicide in a while and he desperately wants the case However the style of the killing clearly suggests that this might have been a mob hit and so Harry has no choice other than to call the department's Organized Crime Investigative Division and inform them of the crime He fully expects that the OCID will examine the case and almost certainly move in and take it away from him but they insist that they have no interest in the case at all Harry is relieved but the fact that OCID doesn't even want to look at it sets off the first alarm bell suggesting to Bosch that there may be to this case than a simple murderAnd of course there is Before long the trail will take Harry and his team back and forth between LA and Las Vegas where the victim was a freuent visitor And before long Harry will be butting heads with his perennial nemeses the FBI and the department's Internal Affairs Division as well as the Vegas PD and ultimately the OCID which decides that maybe it is interested in the case after allHappily though he won't be in conflict with his immediate supervisor Harvey Pounds the lieutenant who was such a thorn in Bosch's side in the earlier books has been replaced by Lieutenant Grace Billets who is much supportive of Harry and his team This is a very good thing because Harry is going to need all the help he can get It's a byzantine case with all kinds of angles and competing interests playing out against each other and against Bosch This remains I think the best of all of Connelly's plots very cleverly designed and populated with one of his best casts Bosch is at his peak here and by this book is a fully formed character tough smart prickly and single minded in the pursuit of his mission This book grabs me from the first paragraph every time I read it and it never lets go

    35 starsWhen I'm feeling stressed I like to turn to a favorite author or series in order to take my mind off things Harry Bosch is a dependable character in that you know he's always going to be in the middle of something and will be sure to piss than a few people off While this isn't my favorite of the five books I have read so far in the series any Michael Connelly novel is miles above most others in the genreWith issues in his professional life resolved Harry is now back working as an LAPD homicide detective His first case back appears to be a Mafia style hit on a Hollywood producer He follows a paper trail to Las Vegas and soon a person from the past reenters his life Once again this is a story that will not only have the drama of the actual case but also the problems Harry will face in his professional and personal lifeI really enjoyed the addition of Lt Grace Billets and look forward to seeing her in future books I didn't particularly care for the blast from the past character that showed up in this one Part of the reason might be because I started the series about 25 years ago and for the life of me can't remember her so therefore her reappearance in Harry's life did nothing for me The police case itself was okay but I've enjoyed previous cases in the series Overall a solid read and I look forward to continuing on with the series

    Harry's back from enforced stress leave and anxious to get assigned to a case When he and his team find Tony Aliso's body in the trunk of his car Harry fights to hold onto it instead of handing it over to the guys in the Organized Crime Investigation Division What first appears to be mob trunk music turns out to be so much As usual Harry's solid investigative instincts makes the procedurals so interesting especially when things get dicey He's heading up a three person team introducing a new partner Kizmin Rider to join him and Jerry Edgar With Pounds' death the unit is now under the leadership of Grace Billets and we're finally treated to a better functioning detectives unit The twists and turns were delicious some I saw coming and others catching me as usual flat footed The good news is that even Harry wasn't able to see some of this stuff coming either which made the story that much realistic I'm still digesting one of the final surprises I've loved Dick Hill as the narrator of the series and this book marks his last performance He's been Harry for me so I'm uite leery about the performances to come At least his sign off was up to his usual excellent standards Loved the story and the narration

    Number 5 in the Harry Bosch series and still rolling nicely along I probably found this to be the least exciting of the books to date It was a little bit too full of procedural detail and there were so many different cons going on at once I was occasionally confused Nevertheless Bosch used all his smarts and came out on topas usual I liked his two off siders and his boss who was able to bend the rules occasionally for him I found the story line of Eleanor Wish and the marriage to be unnecessary and even a little strange Still a very readable book and one which I raced through

    You guys I finished a book Woot Seriously I went from reading a book a day while the hubs was out of town to reading almost nothing in the month and a half he's been back Life is cruelAnyway I finally finished this book and yet again it was a solid entry into this series This book is the basis for the first season of Bosch on and so when I realized that I think that it kind of added to the slump I was in because I felt like I knew what was going to happen already Wrong The show goes in a very different direction from the book and I really enjoyed it Some of the details were the same but I only recalled them after the fact so despite my expectations this book surprised me uite a few times I liked it DI'm very glad that I think we won't be seeing view spoilerFlorida girlfriend hide spoiler

    Harry Bosch is back working homicide and his first case involves a body left in a car trunk It looks like the victim was the victim of a mob hit and he has connections in Las Vegas Is the case really going to be that simple?Bosch’s cases are always fun and this book is no exception I was able to spot a couple of the twists coming a little early but that was a minor complaint The characters are strong both returning and new A face from Bosch’s past comes back into his life here and I love his new lieutenantRead my full review at Carstairs Considers

    TTrunk Music is book five in the Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly First day on back at work after a leave of absence Harry Bosch caught the case of the murder of Tony Alison At first glance it looks like a mob hit However this was not the case The readers will continue to follow the twists and turn in Harry Bosch investigation into the death of Tony Aliso Also the readers of Trunk Music will be surprised by the ending of this book I love reading books in this series and Trunk Music did not disappoint it an enjoyable book to reading Michael Connelly in Trunk Music has incorporated a softer side of Harry Bosch in Trunk Music and it made me appreciate his character Trunk Music was well written and researched by Michael Connelly The way Michael Connelly described his settings and the plot is done well by Michael Connelly The readers of Trunk Music will learn about the shady side of the movie industry in Los Angles Also the readers of Trunk Music will understand the devastation that gaming can have on the suffer and the people around them Trunk Music highlights the different law enforcement agencies in the United States and how they interact with each other I recommend this book

    ‘Trunk Music’ Mob Hit I didn't know that This is #5 in the Bosch series and Harry is back in full force after being forced into involuntary leave A producer has been killed and stuffed in a trunk Harry’s team is on it We have some new characters to read about Jerry Edgar and Kizman Rider I like these two so far Rider seems to be drawn up as a temp detective and might be moving on to bigger and better things but I hope she decides to stay Edgar is a man what can I say Your typical masochistic and competitive male However he becomes loyal to Bosch so I think he will do We don’t get into the specifics of their personal lives so I can’t say why I like them only that they are good detectives Grace Billets is Harry’s new boss She is tough and supports Bosch throughout Even when Harry’s job is on the line again CIA FBI and IA have once again attacked Bosch’s credibility saying he has planted evidence Round and round they go I love these pissing contests between Bosch and these guys When Bosch FINALLY comes out on top I whooped for joy so loud my dog even got excited Bosch’s old fame is in the story Eleanor Wish an ex FBI who has served her time and with no support has become a pro player earning her living on cards She is connected somehow but not so much that it hinders Harry’s investigation In fact she is helpful and the flame is reignited I had my doubts about her but will most likely pick up the next book to see how the relationship continues if it does I’m glad Harry has someone in his life once again He’s had some pretty rough times between the earthuake destroying his home relationships and his job He really needed this break in the series as well as a good solve The story theme and dialogue were fantastic Lots of clues to decipher and many twists and turns even a big fat red herring which I saw coming eventually Throw in some back stabbing blackmail corrupt cops and you've got a roller coaster of emotions to work through while reading this The blurbs mentioned Harry keeping his friends close his enemies closer If it had turned out any different I might not have considered reading the next in the series Oh yes I will read the next book now

  10. Megan Baxter Megan Baxter says:

    This is my first Michael Connelly and thus obviously my first Harry Bosch mystery And as always I throw continuity to the wind and start somewhere in the middle Who needs beginnings?Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook
