Description

Harry Bosch crosses the line to team up with Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.
Detective Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD, but his half-brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller, needs his help. A woman has been brutally murdered in her bed and all evidence points to Haller's client, a former gang member turned family man. Though the murder rap seems ironclad, Mickey is sure it's a setup.
Bosch doesn't want anything to do with crossing the aisle to work for the defense. He feels it will undo all the good he's done in his thirty years as a homicide cop. But Mickey promises to let the chips fall where they may. If Harry proves that his client did it, under the rules of discovery, they are obliged to turn over the evidence to the prosecution.
Though it goes against all his instincts, Bosch reluctantly takes the case. The prosecution's file just has too many holes and he has to find out for himself: if Haller's client didn't do it, then who did? With the secret help of his former LAPD partner Lucy Soto, Harry starts digging. Soon his investigation leads him inside the police department, where he realizes that the killer he's been tracking has also been tracking him.
Thrilling, fast-paced, and impossible to put down, The Crossing shows without a shadow of doubt that Connelly is "a master of building suspense" (Wall Street Journal).

    For some reason I skipped this when it came out ... probably because of reviews saying it was a "short story". I don't know what book those reviewers are talking about, after reading and thoroughly enjoying this book! It's a great story, great characters, more of the same that Harry Bosch fans are used to! Highly recommended! Thanks for a fun read, Mr. Connelly!

    I have only myself to blame for not thoroughly reading the reviews from other readers before buying this shorter Bosch novel. Since Harry Bosch is one of my favorite characters I probably bought this anyway but would have been expecting a very quick read. Oh well....the sad thing is that this could have easily have been a more thorough story with the great character development I have grown to expect. It is like Michael Connolly just didn't care or try on this one. I can only hope the next Bosch story returns to the high levels of the all of the other predecessors (except for The Crossing)

    Good Story. Incomplete. Really not a novel, but a short story. Felt ripped off in the end. Wished it had gone full circle.
  • A bit short

    Good story, enjoyed seeing the story unfold from Harry's side vice Mick's in the Brass Verdict, but it was pretty short, so beware.
  • Read the Brass Verdict First

    Really loved both. You need to read the Haller book first, in my opinion, both are excellent. Did not know that you got two for one!

    Welcome back Michael Connelly to superior Harry Bosch storytelling in The Crossing!! After so-so renderings with The Burning Room and Gods of Guilt, Connelly is back with a taunt tale with Bosch and Haller - outstanding plotting, pace, and smart writing. Enjoy - this will NOT disappoint!!
  • Short but good

    Connelly didn’t dissapoint in his story. Well told and up to his usual standards. I do agree with the other reviewers that this book was very short. It was a thinly veiled guise to include another book (already owned) with the download to cushion the $14.99 blow. It is Connelly so I won’t totally cry foul but given this scenario again I’d either wait for the price to drop or skip it altogether.
