Michael Connelly's fifth book in the Harry Bosch series, "Trunk Music," begins with his first homicide assignment since he was placed on involuntary stress leave eighteen months prior. After eight months assigned to the purgatorial Hollywood Burglary division by Lieutenant Grace Billets, he has been elevated to leader of a three person homicide squad with his former partner Jerry Edgar and gifted top-notch investigator, Kismin Rider.
Connelly excels in detailing procedurals and forensics. He can be relied upon to provide current technology. Here, where a body is found in a trunk, the SI tech used laser rays to fully establish positioning of the corpse and to illuminate otherwise missed pieces of potential evidence and to identify hidden patterns and prints.
Bosch always finds himself entangled in disharmony with members of the force and with the bureaucracy of the system. "Trunk Music" is no exception. The entanglements here are complex: a long time "interdepartmental skirmish between Deputy Chief Leon Fitzgerald, commander of OCID ... and his boss, the chief of police;" the struggle for control of the investigation between OCID (Organized Crime Investigation Division) and Hollywood division; Hollywood division and the Los Vegas PD. Bosch's personal involvement is also entangled when he re-kindles his relationship with ex-felon Eleanor Wish, which would be seen as consorting with a criminal, a serious breach of departmental rules. Of all the entanglements, the last ends most amicably.

A nicely-done police procedural in the Harry Bosch series. Although this is the fifth book in the series, it's the first one I've read. The plot is interesting, as are the characters, if they do fall a little flat from time to time. My editor brain cringed a few times at some things I thought the book's editor should have caught and fixed--especially since this is not a first-time author. However, it's not something likely to bother the average reader. Definitely recommended if you like mysteries/procedurals; I'll likely look for more books in this series. ( )

Bosch goes to Vegas running into Eleanor Wish. Bosch chases down the bad guys who are both the LVPD and the mob. Not a lot of action. The book was familiar because a lot of it was used for one of the TV seasons plot elements. Running into the girl who got away on his Honeymoon in Hawaii was a bit much and there really wasn't much action but still a good, dense read. ( )

Well I was up and down about Harry Bosch. I absolutely love the tv series and decided to go back and read these books. The only book I have read out of the series is "City of Bones." At the time I had no idea it was part of an ongoing series. It was in one of my grandpa's Reader's Digest condensed books that included 3 other novels. I recall liking that story and had an idea at one time to see about other books Connelly wrote, but that was years ago and I forgot about it. When the tv series came out, I fall in love with Bosch all over again and started working my way through the series. Now with book #5, I can say that Connelly finally hits the sweet spot with Harry and company. I enjoyed this one from beginning to end. And the final reveal about how the murder victim was set up and by who was great too. I do have to say though, that Harry won't stop, and can't stop, he definitely has a blind spot about what repercussions will happen due to his actions. We get to see this over and over again in the next few books.

"Trunk Music" has Harry back after his leave of absence. He is excited to be back to doing what he knows, investigating murders and finding out who dun it. With a new set-up in Hollywood Division (3 partners per case) Harry, J. Edgar, and Kiz are working together after a man's body is found in a trunk.

Told in the first person by Harry Bosch, I found "Trunk Music" showcased a different Harry than one I am used to. This one is more subdued, is not a jerk, and definitely gets the issues (or tries to) with two partners who are African American. If anything, we get to see that Harry starts to really like Kiz more. And he is starting to see that J. Edgar kind of sucks. That one surprises me though, I definitely get that Harry and J. Edgar had some minor issues here and there, but a few times it is implied how J. Edgar shirks work. One important thing that I got a kick out of while reading this book though is we get a better sense of Harry's moral compass in this one. No matter what happens, whoever is responsible will be held responsible for the murdered man. We also see that though the job drives him, he is lonely and has not been with someone for at least a year I think.

Though the book is told in Harry's POV, we do get a great sense of secondary characters included in this book. We once again have an IA man, John Chastain, up in Harry's business. This guy will come up in the next book, so pay attention to the animosity Harry and this character have. I think that Harry has been investigated by IA in every book at this point. Or at least had them nosing around.

The case ends up leading Harry back to Vegas and he is shocked to see his ex-lover Eleanor Wish (first appearance "The Black Echo" Harry Bosch #1). Eleanor who we met in a previous novel, is an ex-FBI agent who has finally been released. She's playing cards in Vegas and trying to get her life back on track. After Eleanor and Harry meet up, we find out how she is tied into Harry's current case. I really didn't like this character after we find out what she did in "The Black Echo" and I have to say that Harry's taste in women continues to be downright terrible.

One thing that I enjoy about these types of books is the forensics that come into play. Due to the location of the body of the trunk, we have LAPD scrambling to move the entire thing in one go and reading about how it works, how they go about testing and using the lay of the land to determine what happens always gets my brain racing. This is probably why I love Agatha Christie books so much. I love seeing how things the author brings up initially circle back to showing how a murder was committed and who did it and why.

The flow for this one really works. Though it does feel like every five seconds Harry was back in Las Vegas. We do get to see how his interaction with witnesses and suspects can somehow color his perceptions down the road. I may have said a few times to myself, um Harry, slow down and get your temper under control. Due to the fact that Eleanor is tied up in this mess, Harry seems hell-bent on keeping her safe first, and tying up his case next.

The setting switches between LA and Las Vegas. Most of the action seems to take place in Las Vegas this time through. I have been to Vegas a few times, and Connelly describes it as a sister city to LA and maybe even darker. I guess Connelly is not here for the Disney version of Vegas these days.

The ending surprised the life out of me though when Harry finally lays eyes on a character he was chasing the whole book I mumble okay random coincidence. I didn't buy it, and thought it was just a reach. Sometimes it's okay to just end a book with not everything wrapped up. ( )

This is the latest in this GREAT mystery series. It doesn't come out until early next year so, in the meantime, you might want to re-read the first in the series - Black Echo. (reviewed in 1996) ( )
