it was amazing

The mystery starts with a body found in the trunk of a Rolls-Royce on a ridge overlooking the Hollywood Bowl. Harry Bosch, LAPD's laconic super-detective, leads a team of three investigators as they attempt to solve the murder.

Like most Michael Connelly novels, the power of Trunk Music is in the details. Whether or not Connelly really knows police work is never in question, his books are so filled with details that you buy into everything he says.

So Bosch and his team--Detectives Edgar and Ryder--set out to solve the murder. They can rule out robbery, the stiff is wearing a Rolex with diamonds on every hour. The deceased ran a small movie studio that specialized in softcore porn--TNA Productions. The TNA does not stand for what you think it stands for, the guy's name was Tony N. Aliso.

The trail will lead Bosch and friends into realms far beyond their jurisdiction and ultimately threaten their careers. This is a great book, one of Connelly's best.

Now, about the narrator, Dick Hill. Hill has always been among the premier macho-voiced readers. WHen it comes to Baldacci, Connelly, and authors of their caliber, Hill is always a safe bet. This time, though, Hill has outdone himself. This is a superb book paired with a superb performance.
