Harry Bosch no longer works for the LAPD having retired six months ago. He hired his half-brother, defence lawyer Mickey Haller, to sue the department for forcing him out. Not popular! But this does enable Connelly to mix his two main series together for, although this is Harry Bosch’s twentieth book, Haller is Connelly’s other series character. The mixing works well in another well-paced, intriguing and complex mystery. Mickey is happy to help Harry but he needs help himself. He has a client, a former gang member whom the police are prosecuting for murder but the man adamantly proclaims his innocence. Harry Bosch has never worked for the defence. His life has been spent putting bad people behind bars, not finding ways of getting them acquitted, but this particular case seems to be full of holes. It is starting to look rather like a set up. Certainly Bosch’s former colleagues will view him a traitor but if Mickey believes in his client then someone else is guilty and needs to be found. This is ace stuff; difficult to put down. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

The Crossing by Michael Connelly

Six months ago, Harry Bosch left the LAPD before they could fire him, and then hired maverick Defense Attorney Mickey Haller to sue the department for forcing him out. Although it wasn't the way he wanted to go, Harry has to admit that being out of the game has its benefits. Until Mickey asks him to help on one of his cases, and suddenly Harry is back where he belongs, right in the centre of a particularly puzzling murder mystery. The difference is, this time Harry is working for the defense, aiming to prevent the accused, Da'Quan Foster, from being convicted. And not only does the prosecution seem to have a cast-iron case, but having crossed over to 'the dark side' as his former colleagues would put it, Harry is in danger of betraying the very principles he's lived by his whole career.

Reviews

'Enter Harry Bosch, one of the finest minds in crime fiction. He understands the trajectories of bullets and also political careers. Connelly loves to watch him think, and so do I.' EVENING STANDARD

'Fast detective action is skilfully interwoven with courtroom pyrotechnics.' THE INDEPENDENT

'It's jaw-dropping that after 27 bestsellers he's still scaling new heights with every book, and this one is a double delight because it features both detective Harry Bosch and his half-brother, ducking and diving defence lawyer Mickey Haller.' PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH

'Vintage Bosch' -- Mark Billingham CRIME VAULT PODCAST

'As ever, Connelly's produced a solid police procedural, gripping right to the end.' -- Mat Coward MORNING STAR

'Intensely satisfying and featuring two of the smartest creations in modern crime fiction, this is as elegant a masterpiece as Connelly has delivered.' DAILY MAIL

'When Michael Connelly is on form, as he is with The Crossing, he is irresistible.' IRISH TIMES
