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.

This book is terrific from start to finish. Am I saying this because I love Michael Connelly's work? Perhaps.
But the fact is that I have impeccable taste in audiobooks after having gone through several hundred titles and I know the difference between a good book and a great book.
If you are looking for a book where you will experience withdrawals when you are not listening to the story, then this book is for you.
If you are looking for a book that hooks you from the beginning and leaves you begging for more at the end, this book is for you
If you are looking for the perfect marriage between author and narrator, then this book is for you.
If you are an Angeleno and enjoy Michael Connelly's love affair with LA then this book will not disappoint you. To think that Harry Bosch goes to the same Starbuck's that I go to-who knew?
Even if you aren't an Angeleno but are a sucker for a good story with well developed characters and just the appropriate number of twists, surprises and appearances by some old friends then use your credit to get this book
