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.
