MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 15, 2002

"Connelly diabolically teases readers with bits of exposition while scaring the hell out of them in the most accomplished slice of Hitchcock since the Master's heyday. The result is a tour de force of nerve-shredding suspense."

BOOK REVIEW

THE WRONG SIDE OF GOODBYE by Michael Connelly
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Nov. 1, 2016

"Grade-A Connelly. The dark forces arrayed against the hero turn out to be disappointingly toothless, but everything else clicks in this latest chapter of a compulsively good cop's odyssey through the City of Angels and its outlying neighborhoods and less angelic spirits."
Harry Bosch, balancing a new pair of gigs in greater LA, tackles two cases, one of them official, one he struggles to keep as private as can be. Read full book review >
