Detective Harry Bosch must track down someone who may never have existed in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. Harry Bosch is California's newest private investigator. He doesn't advertise, he doesn't have an office, and he's picky about who he works for, but it doesn't matter. His chops from thirty years with the LAPD speak for themselves. Soon one of Southern California's biggest moguls comes calling. The reclusive billionaire is nearing the end of his life and is haunted by one regret. When he was young, he had a relationship with a Mexican girl, his great love. But soon after becoming pregnant, she disappeared. Did she have the baby? And if so, what happened to it? Desperate to know whether he has an heir, the dying magnate hires Bosch, the only person he can trust. With such a vast fortune at stake, Harry realizes that his mission could be risky not only for himself but for the one he's seeking. But as he begins to uncover the haunting story--and finds uncanny links to his own past--he knows he cannot rest until he finds the truth. At the same time, unable to leave cop work behind completely, he volunteers as an investigator for a tiny cash-strapped police department and finds himself tracking a serial rapist who is one of the most baffling and dangerous foes he has ever faced. Swift, unpredictable, and thrilling, The Wrong Side of Goodbye shows that Michael Connelly "continues to amaze with his consistent skill and sizzle" (Cleveland Plain Dealer).… (mer)

I've loved Harry Bosch since something compelled me to buy a copy of The Black Echo years ago at a local bookstore. Bosch is a fixture in my life. One of my vertebrae even. I was thrilled at the quality of Amazon Prime's Bosch television series. But for some unknown reason, I allowed myself to get a bit behind in reading the books. Probably because Mickey Haller made an appearance, and I'm not a big fan of his. I know-- excuses, excuses. But I knew the books would always be there, and they'd always be good.

For the past few years, I've been conducting a private war with audiobooks. So many readers seem to swear by them, but I'd never found a book narrated by someone who didn't put me to sleep. I don't have trouble with insomnia, so this entire "war" has been frustrating-- until I noticed an audiobook copy of The Wrong Side of Goodbye. The price was really good, so I took a look at the small print. Narrated by Titus Welliver... I love that man's voice! I bought the audiobook so fast I think I broke the internet for a second or two.

Listening to this book was being allowed to relax in heaven for a while. Seriously! I haven't felt this good about being read to since I was small enough to crawl into my mother's lap to listen to her read me a story.

Of course, the story is excellent, vintage Connelly. Harry has two cases keeping him busy: his P.I. case for the billionaire, and a case involving a serial rapist called the "Screen Cutter" in the San Fernando Valley. Most writers would think they'd hit the jackpot with just one of those storylines, but Connelly has them both and he handles both brilliantly.

What I love the most about Connelly's storytelling is the personal details he adds. It's the personal that brings the reader's emotions to the fore, that really makes the reader engage with the story and the characters. Why Harry won't eat Vietnamese food. Bob Hope, Connie Stevens, and Neil Armstrong going out to entertain the troops during the Vietnam War. That sculpture at the conclusion of the book...

With this audiobook experience being such a wonderful one, you know what I did, don't you? I have the next Harry Bosch lined up, and I'm looking forward to listening to Titus Welliver's voice telling me another story. I have finally been converted, at least where Harry is concerned. ( )

Top notch. Two excellent investigations by Harry. Privately, he is hired by an ailing billionaire to see if he has an heir from a love affair when he was young, where much is at stake. Harry is told to deal exclusively with him, and there are many parties interested in leaving things as they are. Meanwhile, Harry is a volunteer detective with the San Fernando Police Department trying to clear old cases. He has tied together a number of seemingly unrelated rapes, and seeks to find the culprit before he strikes again. Working the two cases creates a distraction, allowing his full-time partner to be kidnapped, when Harry has to pull out all the stops to try to save her life. ( )

The Wrong Side of Goodbye is essentially a sad story about a man who never got to know his legacy and one man, Harry Bosch, who got the opportunity to make the discovery. The story exemplifies how an investigator can solve a mystery without nearly zero leads. Quite interesting. The book received a solid four stars in this review because of its ability to engage the reader from beginning to end. ( )

Harry Bosch has won his wrongful retirement suit against LAPD and has taken on an investigation which, on its surface, is nothing like the search for killers that he sees as his mission in life. His task is to determine if billionaire businessman, Whitney Vance, has fathered heir. He finds the heir and when Vance is murdered he, with the help of Mickey Haller, finds his killer.
Bosch also works pro-bono for the San Fernando Police Department where he is investigating a serial rapist labeled as the "Screen Cutter." He solves the case rescuing his partner, Bella Lourdes, in the process.

The Man with the golden pen... Two jobs fight for Bosch's attention. 3.5 stars, maybe 4. ( )

They charged from the cover of the elephant grass toward the L.Z., five of them swarming the slick on both sides, one among them yelling, "Go! Go! Go!" - as if each man needed to be prodded and reminded that these were the most dangerous seconds of their lives.
