TRUNK MUSIC by Michael Connelly
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...
Number 5 in the Harry Bosch series, and it keeps getting better and better.
In this book, Harry is absolutely certain of the identity of the killer. Has no doubt. He has fingerprints and the gun. And then the FBI steps in...
There are a few twists in the book that keep you guessing. But, unlike some of the other books, the identity of the killer is revealed before the very end of the book. The reader gets to see just how Harry works to bring everything together into one neat package.
