The Crossing

Harry Bosch Series, Book 20
Borrow Borrow Borrow

ATTENTION, LIBRARIANS! This ebook contains two full-length Michael Connelly novels featuring Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller: The Crossing and, as a bonus, The Brass Verdict—two novels for the price of one!
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).

    Starred review from September 28, 2015
    In bestseller Connelly’s masterly 20th Harry Bosch novel (after 2014’s The Burning Room), former gang member Da’Quan Foster, a client of Bosch’s half-brother, DA Mickey Haller, awaits trial for a rape and murder. The case appears to be a slam dunk for the prosecution, with Foster’s DNA found at the crime scene, but Haller, who’s convinced it’s a setup, persuades Bosch, a retired homicide cop, to help prove his client’s innocence. With assistance from his former LAPD partner, Lucia Soto, Bosch does some digging and finds some interesting links among a prostitution ring, Internet pornography, and a very expensive wristwatch. Drawing on his 30 years of experience and instinct, Bosch as usual investigates things his way, even when the case may lead inside the police department. Indeed, the notion of crossing resonates on different levels—the intersection of predator and prey, cops gone rogue, and for Bosch, the transition from one part of his life into something exciting and new.
