The Wrong Side of Goodbye
The Wrong Side of Goodbye | Michael Connelly
Only Harry Bosch can uncover LA's darkest secrets in this new gripping thriller from global bestseller Michael Connelly. 'What do you want me to do?' Bosch asked again. 'I want you to find someone for me,' Vance said. 'Someone who might not have ever existed.' Harry Bosch is working as a part-time detective in the town of San Fernando outside of Los Angeles, when he gets the invitation to meet with the ageing aviation billionaire Whitney Vance. When he was eighteen Vance had a relationship with a Mexican girl called Vibiana Duarte, but soon after becoming pregnant she disappeared. Now, as he reaches the end of his life, Vance wants to know what happened to Vibiana and whether there is an heir to his vast fortune. And Bosch is the only person he trusts to undertake the assignment. Harry's aware that with such sums of money involved, this could be a dangerous undertaking - not just for himself, but for the person he's looking for - but as he begins to uncover Vibiana's tragic story, and finds uncanny links to his own past, he knows he cannot rest until he finds the truth.

Another great book from Michael Connelly ❤
Book 19 in the Harry Bosch series and for me he is still a very entertaining character and the plot for this was very good. Two cases running alongside eachother both with lots of mystery 😊

These books are also guaranteed slump busters. Although I really would like Mr. Connelly to stop mentioning Poquito Más in every single book. ??

TheWordJar Great choices! I loved both The Kite Runner and A Walk in the Woods. I do the same thing in October. Though I had the impulse to get a horror story in now and am currently reading The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay. If you haven‘t read his books, definitely check him out for your October reads! 1y

We have been in the heart of the latest California wildfire “The Holy Fire” all week. I wish I could say I have been getting a lot of reading accomplished but sadly I haven‘t.

As always this was a fast read for me. I don't know how Connelly keeps doing it ( after 20 books you'd figure he'd get stale, but I keep loving his books). It's a good crime novel that keeps you guessing, but above all what keeps me coming back to these novels is the characters - not just Harry Bosch that is fascinating but even the side characters always hold interest for me and I always care for them and find them believable. A fun afternoon!

Hadn't read any Connelly before. This is the 21st in a series of books but I had no prob reading as a stand alone. Enjoyed the plot and characters. Its a well done example of the crime novel. Part cop/private investigator tracks down potential missing heir to fortune while at the same time chasing down a serial rapist. Liked it in part due to the ending. There are consequences to life choices. Now to find book 1 😊🖒

Harry Bosch never disappoints. Or should I say Michael Connelly? I've read the entire series & really enjoyed watching this detective as he ages & moves through life. This latest entry continues Connelly's formula of weaving two story lines throughout the novel, each engaging in its own right & never cannibalizing the other. It's also a love letter of sorts to Los Angeles. If police procedurals are your thing, this is a very good bet. Enjoy.

I finished book one of my re-read of "The Lord of the Rings", and set it aside to enjoy Connelly's latest. It was then fun to run across this passage partway through... "Bosch ... had also read Tolkien in Vietnam. It was a popular book among combat veterans, a rich fantasy about another world that took them away from the reality of where they were and what they were doing." ?

In the 21st book in the Harry Bosch series, Connelly has Harry juggling two cases. One is more interesting than the other, in my humble opinion, but they both were good enough for me to continue the book...and want to continue the series. It still is one of my favorite series in crime fiction, if not my favorite. First book finished for #thankfullyreading Weekend.

My husband and I saw Michael Connolly, one of our literary heroes tonight at Warwick's. We started reading his Bosch books when the first one came out in 1992 -we lived in Virginia and were homesick for Los Angeles, and Connolly's descriptions of our city made us feel like we were there. Both of us have read all his books, and we don't usually read even in the same genre. This latest book is dedicated to Vin Scully- the soundtrack for our city.

I love Connelly's books. They are well plotted and smart legal (mostly police) procedurals. But what really keeps me with his books are the characters and their continued development. When I first started the Bosch series, he was a detective in the LAPD. Now, he's retired. And, the intersection between Bosch and his Lincoln lawyer, Haller, just makes the series that much better. This book doesn't disappoint and I blew through it.

Suzze Loved it, as always. 3y
