Bosch tracks down the heir to a fortune as well as a serial rapist.

Solid story, solid writing. Not much else to say as Michael Connelly is a pretty reliable read. Bosch handles two cases, one for the police department and one for his private eye business. Both come to a satisfactory conclusion. ( )

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. ( )

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.
