My Review of “The Wrong Side of Goodbye” by Michael Connelly

The Wrong Side of Goodbye (Harry Bosch, #19; Harry Bosch Universe, #28)

The Wrong Side of Goodbye by Michael Connelly

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


WARNING fellow mystery lovers! This book is a double-barreled shotgun blast to the entertainment sensories of the brain.

Wow, where do I begin? I’ll start with the obvious, once again Connelly doesn’t fail to provide thrills, spills and mystery all rolled into a well researched, excellently written tale that deserves every one of my stingily given 5 stars.

You won’t figure out the ending on this one unless you’re a better detective than yours truly. I can’t think of enough energetic adjectives to describe my feelings throughout this story. After a couple of paragraphs, the story comes alive in your mind like your own private high-tech TV.

No, better than that, you are right there, next to the DUDE detective, Bosch as he works the case. At times you gulp down deep breaths when you finally realize you have been holding your breath for way too long.

Our hero takes us through not one but two intriguing cases. The difference with a master like Connelly is you know anything can happen. As in real life, the boy doesn’t always get the girl, the victim isn’t always saved, and most important the character you have grown to like doesn’t always live.

Connelly’s stories aren’t sickeningly sweet fantasy tales of good always conquering evil and wrongs always righted within the confines of the book. No sir, no mam, Connelly’s tales are those of real life where people aren’t always perfect and sometimes evil wins.

If you love a great Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, Whodunit work of art, please my friends read “The Wrong Side of Goodbye” with our hero Harry Bosch you won’t be disappointed.
