#BookReview: The Wrong Side of Goodbye by Michael Connelly

The Wrong Side of Goodbye The Wrong Side of Goodbye by Michael Connelly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Some stories mean a lot to you just the way they span generations and way it changes the course of someone's life. "The Wrong side of Goodbye" starts with Bosch being hired by an old guy, almost on his deathbed to find his heir that he abandoned about 60 years ago. And so starts a search that leads Bosch to revisit his time in the Vietnam war and in parallel search for this heir and any other family that the Old guy might have. Also, Bosch is working as a reserve for the Police department and a case of a serial rapist is taking shape and getting a lot of traction. With these two cases running in parallel, this book has no dearth of action and revelations.

This is by far my favorite of all the books I have read in the Bosch series. It had the same intensity that Bosch has but there was something about him being on his own that showed how he has made connections over the years and how he has this other side outside his old job. The investigation was laid out very systematically and engaged the reader at every turn. Once you start this one, I bet you won't take much time finishing it.

It also had the other Connelly character - Mickey Haller [ Bosch's stepbrother who is also a really good lawyer] whom I liked so I would now read the books in the Lincoln lawyer series based on him.
