Excerpt from The Wrong Side of Goodbye

This past weekend was When Words Collide, a writer’s conference in Calgary, which was put on as an online conference this weekend. It was a great experience, and many of the presentations will be posted on the youtube channel for those who didn’t get a chance to attend or to see everything they wanted to.

Fairy Blade Unmade, book #7 of the Reg Rawlins, Psychic Investigator series is being released this Friday! Preorder now or come by Friday for my round-up of new releases.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am reading one of Michael Connelly’s Bosch books this week, The Wrong Side of Goodbye. I haven’t seen the TV Bosch, soI don’t know how faithful he is to the book series, but the Harry Bosch books are a fun read. In this book, Bosch is trying to unwind a series of family secrets as a private investigator, while he is also on the trail of a serial rapist in his part-time police position.

“I’m old—that’s how I am,” Vance said. “I have fought like hell to defeat time but some things can’t be beat. It is hard for a man in my position to accept, but I am resigned, Mr. Bosch.

Michael Connelly, The Wrong Side of Goodbye

Harry Bosch is California’s newest private investigator. He doesn’t advertise, he doesn’t have an office, and he’s picky about who he works for, but it doesn’t matter. His chops from thirty years with the LAPD speak for themselves.

Soon one of Southern California’s biggest moguls comes calling. The reclusive billionaire is nearing the end of his life and is haunted by one regret. When he was young, he had a relationship with a Mexican girl, his great love. But soon after becoming pregnant, she disappeared. Did she have the baby? And if so, what happened to it?

Desperate to know whether he has an heir, the dying magnate hires Bosch, the only person he can trust. With such a vast fortune at stake, Harry realizes that his mission could be risky not only for himself but for the one he’s seeking. But as he begins to uncover the haunting story–and finds uncanny links to his own past–he knows he cannot rest until he finds the truth.

At the same time, unable to leave cop work behind completely, he volunteers as an investigator for a tiny cash-strapped police department and finds himself tracking a serial rapist who is one of the most baffling and dangerous foes he has ever faced.
