Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly, a short story featuring LAPD detective Harry Bosch and FBI agent Rachel Walling.

Two women have gone missing, and LAPD detective Harry Bosch has a strong suspicion that an avid fisherman named Denninger is the culprit. Bosch needs something stronger than a suspicion to bring Denninger in, but all he has are a handful of photos - prior mug shots and pictures of Denninger posing with his prize fish. It's not much to go on, and Bosch is running out of time, which is why he calls in FBI agent Rachel Walling. What she sees in these photos could blow his case wide open.

"Blue on Black" by Michael Connelly is one of 20 short stories within Mulholland Books' Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives. View the full series list at mulhollandbooks.com, and listen to them all!

    "Don't waste your money"

    I am a huge fan of the Harry Bosch books, but this was a complete waste of time and money. Very short (less than 30 minutes) book. Was terrible and clear was an idea for a story.

    "too short"

    Needed to be longer. This was just an idea for a book or a novel.

    Story
    "Short But Certainly Not Sweet"

    It must have been a slow day on the set for you to write this and then pass it off as a short story. No offense, Mr. Connelly, but this wasn't even worthy of bothering with, in my limited status of "just a reader," and I'm surprised you even allowed it to be published. Perhaps the fact that Titus Welliver did such an outstanding job in the narration justified its' publication, at least in your thinking. Whatever, let's hope "The Wrong Side of Goodbye" is enjoyable enough to pacify us until Bosch, Season 3, returns in March! That hopefully will be as exciting and satisfying as the first two seasons! Keep up the great work!

    An avid fan,
    Karen Miller

    "I wasted a credit on a 17 minute short story"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't realize Audible had short stories, or I would've paid more attention to what I bought. I like Michael Connelly, but spending a whole credit for a 17 minute short story made me feel cheated.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Connelly again?

    Yes, but I'll make sure it's a whole book, and not a short story.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Titus Welliver?

    Yes--but, same reservation.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blue on Black?

    I'd get rid of the entire thing. It was very unsatisfying.

    Story
    "Don't fall for this!!! Not a whole book!"
    Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or Titus Welliver?

    I love every Michael Connelly book I have read or listened to. But this is ONLY a 17 minute clip from Blue on Black, not the whole book. I cant seem to find the whole book, abridged or unabridged anywhere on Audible.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    40 Theives


    How could the performance have been better?

    Whole book

    "another great Bosch"

    Nice touch using Titus to read this short. Well spoken narrator. Great descriptive story blending Bosch 1st person narrating story and Titus projecting the Bosch charater.

    This is a perfect short Harry Bosch story. It was enjoyable to have Rachel Walling back.
