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 . . .

Following his last big success, The Poet, Connelly returns with a terrific new police procedural -- his best yet in the L.A. Police Dept. Detective Harry Bosch series. Bosch is back on the job after an involuntary administrative leave, and his first case appears to be a simple homicide, possibly a Mafia related hit. But nothing goes according to plan and before he knows it, Bosch is on a roller-coaster ride of triumph and disaster, and up against Las Vegas wiseguys, the FBI, LAPD's organized crime unit, Internal Affairs, as well as the real killers. Intelligently written, fast moving and tightly plotted, this novel is a page-turner.

Title refers to when mobsters kill thier victim in the trunk of a car! Another good Harry Bosch story.

I did not care for the story, and I found the female character abominably ill-written. She seems angry at Bosch for all of five minutes for their previous relationship, and it seems as if prison cured her of any distinct personality traits or signs of life she used to have.

Trunk Music - slang for Mafia hit ending with the victim stashed in a car trunk. Lots of twists, many of them involving the reappearance of Eleanor Wish, Harry's lost love. Happy ending for once. Not that it's going to last long in this series.

You're looking at one of two things. The needle or LWP." He pronounced the last acronym el-wop, knowing that any ... criminal in the system would know it meant life without parole.

Trunk music....it's a wise guy saying out of Chicago. You know, when they whack some poor slob they say "Oh, Tony? Don't worry about Tony. He's trunk music now. You won't see him no more.
