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.

    Harry Bosch goes to work for the Lincoln lawyer. There's no reason why brothers can't work together, even if they're only half brothers--unless one of them put in nearly 30 years at LAPD Robbery-Homicide before a suspension that led to retirement and the other works night and day to get crime suspects released. And defense attorney Mickey Haller can really use his half brother's help finding evidence that will back up his longtime client Da'Quan "DQ" Foster's claim that he didn't assault West Hollywood assistant city manager Lexi Parks in her home and beat her to death, because Bosch's former colleagues have damning DNA evidence DQ can't explain that links him directly to the victim, and a hit-and-run accident has sidelined Dennis "Cisco" Wojciechowski, Haller's regular investigator. Bosch (The Burning Room, 2014, etc.) has a million reasons not to cross over "to the other side of the aisle," but step by step, fearful that the real killer is still out there, he finds himself drawn into the case despite his reservations. The news that his alibi witness was murdered shortly after DQ was arrested both deepens his plight and makes his story more plausible, for Bosch if not for the cops, and he spends some time examining a couple of unhelpfully clean-swept crime scenes before he gets a hunch that the key to the case is a pricey Audemars Piguet watch that Lexi Parks sent off to be repaired and never picked up--and that the killer he's looking for is actually a pair of killers. The deeper he digs, the more reasons he finds to regret having crossed to Haller's dark side and the more reasons to be skeptical, even fearful, of the LAPD. Solid, unspectacular, utterly engrossing work from the reigning master of the police procedural.

    Never mind that Det. Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD. His half-brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller, wants his help in clearing a client of murder. Soon, bullets are flying his way. Last year's "The Burning Room" stayed longer on the "New York Times" best sellers list than any other Connelly novel; with a 550,000-copy first printing.
