The Wrong Side of Goodbye by Michael Connelly Book Summary
In this #1 New York Times bestseller, California's newest private investigator, Detective Harry Bosch, must track down a missing heir while helping a police department connect the dots on a dangerous cold case.
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).
The Wrong Side of Goodbye (Michael Connelly) Book Reviews
The Wrong Side of GoodbyeFun reading that moved well along. Really a relaxing time out..UgotbupkisScore: 4/5
The Wrong Side of Good BuyI've enjoyed every one of the previous books in the series, but this one was nothing special and certainly not worth the $14.99 price. Too contrived, no character development, just a so so read. I will likely pass on the next one..Steve 2334Score: 2/5
Two Mysteries combined in one bookWell, I felt like it was two plots mixed into one. Kind of like a Love Boat episode. Neither one was special. Too much technical detail about geography and was boring at times..Biff12349965Score: 3/5

EH...Quite honestly, I was very bored by this book. The end took FOREVER, and I'd already figured it out. Soooo many descriptions of routes, streets - must have taken up 1/4 of the book. It was a "guy book" anyway so if you're not a guy and you read this, look me up and I'll give you five bucks😉.Uprise24Score: 2/5

Stopped ReadingNeed verification did the UH 1 have a steal wall between the pilot and crew? All pics that I've seen show none. I want to check with Connelly's advisor. Could he have meant the back wall between the fuselage and pax? This detail stopped me dead. Spent the day researching..Pizza eater 47Score: 4/5
Good readThis book was exactly what I was looking for before getting on a 5 hour flight. If you are looking for the next classic, this is not it. If you are looking for entertainment and a good read I recommend it..Delfin111Score: 4/5

Not MC's bestI'll be honest, this book wasn't up to his usual standards. The writing felt very impersonal, the two plot lines didn't really mesh, it was like hopping from one book to another, and way too much time was spent talking about roads in LA...totally a waste of words if you don't live there..CatiefromknechtScore: 2/5

Not so hotI read this book to the end because I love Harry. But it wasn't really a Harry Bosch story. If you love the series you will read it too I know but prepare to be disappointed. Maybe this was a segue book. Or maybe Harry's stories are all told..JustaskberniceScore: 1/5

WRONG SIDE OF THE NATIONI’ve been reading Michael Connelly’s books since his first when he was living in FL. He has always been Anti-Law Enforcement, which initially I took as his way of thinking he was appealing to the general audience who will 'hate cops' bc they rightfully got a ticket. I like his style of writing…..keeping the dialoge, detail, action and suspence flowing…..even though his facts have not always been right. Having lived in CALIFORNIA for 45 years, watching this beautiful vibrant state deteriorate due to the unfettered ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION at the hands of the Liberal-Progressives (Democrats) who now run this SANTUARY STATE, I have to say that this will be the last Connelly book I read. He has a home here now hobnobbing with the elitist Hollywood Crowd and he has no idea that these Hispanic invaders are destoying the border states as well as American’s culture, economics and sovereignty! All of his liberal misgivings pour out in this book giving a false picture of how great the Mexicans are for California. As someone who was born here I must say that the Mexicans coming here have made it difficult for those of us who are here proudly as Americans. They don't want to assimilate or speak English. The majority of them are on government assistance. The author's glorification of this “Fruit Basket” Los Angeles lifestyle is masking the barrios in Southern California and up the coastline now affecting San Francisco Bay areas to Sacramento. I have moved from southern to northern California and plan to move out of California in the very near future. Connelly’s injection of his political views reflected through out his works has culminated in his all out pitch for HILLARY in this last book, published in October 2016, just before the ELECTIONS!! The author and this book are getting 2 Stars and a short GOODBYE from me..Maria Teresa 777Score: 2/5

Harry Bosch does it again!Another excellent book from the inventor of Harry Bosch. A tight intertwined plot with lots of twists and turns sees the experienced detective solve two separate cases each of which impacts on his ability to focus on the other. His relationship with his daughter is further developed but it's time for Harry to find a love interest!.Ephemera DanicaScore: 4/5
The Wrong Side of GoodbyeOutstanding book! I enjoyed reading this latest Bosch mystery, and thought it was great! I've read every one of this author's books, and cannot put them down. I thought both cases, the SFPD Screen Cutter rapist, and the private investigation to find an heir were interesting, and both had surprising twists. I'm glad society is more accepting of single mothers, alternative lifestyles, and wish there were more people like Bosch willing to search for truth and justice regardless of the fallout..ArtymusicianScore: 5/5
