The Wrong Side of Goodbye by Michael Connelly

The Wrong Side of Goodbye (Harry Bosch, #21; Harry Bosch Universe, #24)The Wrong Side of Goodbye by Michael Connelly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another winner by Michael Connelly. Harry Bosch is an aging but still vital detective who was forced into a retirement that he wasn't quite ready for. To use his time and talent, he is working as a volunteer and partnered with a female detective in the smaller area of San Franando in California. Here he comes upon one of the most horrific cases that he has seen in a long time.

His main work at the moment though is as a private investigator. He doesn't advertise his work although he is quite busy because the work seems to come to him.

An excellent read. I always enjoy Harry Bosch; a likeable and believable character. His daughter is growing and in university now but they are very close. I can feel great things ahead for Maddie.

The Whistler by John Grisham

The WhistlerThe Whistler by John Grisham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another winner by John Grisham.

What happens when a judge is corrupt, takes bribes and fixes trials. You can bet your boots that someone will eventually notice. The Whistle Blower, a court reporter. The Florida Board on Judicial Conduct has been tipped off on the biggest case they will ever see.

John Grisham is at the top of my favourite writers. His stories have interesting characters that are well drawn. When new characters are introduced they are described thoroughly so you don't have to be guessing and trying to keep track of who is who. The stories are always interesting and make sense.

This is another winner.
