Before you go looking for the tool to do this, try pushing the boot closed when it is already fully latched. If you get no noise from that, then you may not be looking in the right area.
The obvious things (like cans loose in the back, tools in with the spare tyre, loose spare tyre mount, etc) are also very likely. You can crawl underneath and shake anything you see there; nothing should make a noise or hit against the bodywork.
Get a friend to crawl around the back whilst you drive, and hence find the location of the noise. (Fold rear seats for ease of access )
