Summary

Only Harry Bosch can uncover LA's darkest secrets in this new gripping thriller from global best seller Michael Connelly. Read by Titus Welliver, star of Bosch.

'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 18, 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.

Great book and performance

Michael Connelly delivers again: A great, engaging story with two different cases that will keep listeners on edge.

Titus Welliver delivers a great performance again, bringing the different characters to life. Fans of Bosch or just crime stories in general should give this a listen.

Best Bosch narrator since Dick Hill

Good narration is key to this series. Dick Hill was the master but this is the best since then.

Continuing series with consistent quality

A new Harry Bosch book is always a welcome bit of news to me and the trend of having Titus Welliver from the Amazon TV adaptation narrate the audio books only enhances that feeling of anticipation. This entry delivers on that promise and was a welcome addition to the series. Welliver's subtle McConaghey impression for the Mickey Haller character drew some smiles from me too.

Nice book and story

My first try on the character and although it goes the retired cop cliché, it is well written and also well narrated. I felt sorry when it ended because I wanted to hear more. I guess I have to get another one to keep the Harry momentum going.

As always a great story well written and read by a master. Just brilliant! But be warned it will ensure long periods of just listening.

An excellent read!

Fans will love this book, and it sets things up for many more to come.

The only minus is that while Titus does a good job of reading it, his style is not up to the standard of previous regular readers. It's unfortunate that he now seems to be the only choice.

Love Harry Bosch

Another great book by MC, never get tired of reading about Harry Bosch's escapades. On a par with Rebus.

Imagine the universe that Rebus and Bosch team up to solve a murder.

Great read as always

Love Harry Bosch and Michael Connelly's writing. I just wish he could write the next one faster! Great plot and as always so beautifully and insightfully written. Once you start the book you won't be able to put it down. Bring on the next instalment of Harry Bosch!

FANTASTIC

Where does The Wrong Side of Goodbye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best Harry Bosh novels in my opinion.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

An elegant plot with intertwining stories, which keep you wondering till the last pages!

Harry at his best

It is a very good installment of Harry Bosh, doing what he does best being Harry Bosh. Good story line, intrigue and suspense.
Enjoy
