DE­TEC­TIVE Harry Bosch cracks open a dead sol­dier’s foot­locker and finds a time cap­sule from Viet­nam: books, a Zippo lighter, a cas­sette recorder and a roll of de­vel­oped film stashed inside a cam­era.

This scene in Con­nelly’s lat­est thriller, The Wrong Side of Good­bye, is piv­otal for the iconic Los An­ge­les homi­cide de­tec­tive.

Now re­tired and os­tracised from the Los An­ge­les Po­lice Depart­ment, Bosch is try­ing his hand at pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tion, al­beit with no of­fice.

He is sum­moned to a pow­er­ful se­cu­rity com­pany op­er­ated by a for­mer LAPD com­man­der, who asks him to lo­cate a child he may have fa­thered with a Mex­i­can girl who dis­ap­peared af­ter be­com­ing preg­nant in 1950.

How­ever, a se­cret or­gan­i­sa­tion is go­ing all out to stop him from find­ing the child

Mean­while, Bosch is also in­ves­ti­gat­ing a new case in­volv­ing a vi­cious se­rial rapist tar­get­ing His­panic women.

Bosch is con­vinced that the key to stop­ping the rapist lies in de­ter­min­ing how he chooses his tar­gets.

Swift, un­pre­dictable and thrilling, Con­nelly con­tin­ues to amaze and in­trigue with his sto­ry­telling skills in this book.
