Bosch alone is not enough to carry a story. There are great series, Department Q and Duffy for example, where the detectives' personalities and nuances are so intriguing the mystery is secondary. The genious of Connelly is his ability to create mysteries that not only require great detective work, but hook his readers in the first chapters and keeps us captivated to the end.
Bosch is probably the most accurate description of a real detective in the Procedural genre. He is loyal to the job, above all relationships and personal gain. His dedication, persistence and years of experience make him one of the best detectives in literature.
The Wrong Side of Goodbye has Bosch working as a volunteer detective in the San Ferando police force, while working on his own as a P.I. There are two cases, a serial rapist he works as a detective and a lost heir case he works as a P.I. Both cases are riveting, and well worth your time.

Connelly is a good writer and he lived up to expectations with this contribution to the Bosch series. There were twists aplenty and most were somewhere in-between predictable and coming-out-of-left-field. And that's the way it should be in a good novel. This story had the added bonus of reprising the Lincoln Lawyer. Reminded me of the way John Sandford includes Virgil Flowers in his Lucas Davenport series, and vice-versa. All in all, a good story that will not disappoint Bosch fans.
