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.

From the Publisher
"As always with a Bosch novel, the delight is in the 'inside police' details....What Bosch does discover in The Crossing...should keep him busy—and Connelly fans happy—for years to come."—Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post
"

A classic whodunit...an extra treat for the reader is being able to follow the case from the dual perspectives of the prosecution and the defense... Brothers Bosch and Haller may be, but at times they seem a lot like an ego and its id."
Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review"

Connelly continues to write quality crime fiction, and The Crossing is another great character study mixed with a truly baffling puzzle."
Jeff Ayers, Associated Press"

Tense and effective"—Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal"

The Crossing is another strong offering from perennial bestseller Michael Connelly.... He elevates the genre."
Colleen Kelly, Minneapolis Star Tribune"

Connelly has created a subtle gem."
Barry Lancet, New York Journal of Books"

Thrilling.... Harry is back in his groove....Finding the connections between the parts of the case...gives readers Harry at his best. We get the bonus of seeing Mickey take that case to court for one of his bravura performances."
Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times"

Connelly painstakingly and brilliantly shows Bosch slogging after the truth.... As always, Connelly's blackboard work is as precise as his finale is exciting."—Booklist"

Masterly....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."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

The Crossing again proves Connelly as a master of the genre."—Oline H. Cogdill, Sun-Sentinel"

Michael Connelly remains one of the most reliable writers in the PI crowd. Thirty books on, his plots get tougher and his characters more engaging. The only thing better than Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller is having the pair together and that's what The Crossing delivers, one of the best of Connelly's tales....You won't put this one down from first page to last."—Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail"

Connelly never dithers.... Despite his prolific output, Connelly rarely stumbles and he continues to find new and interesting angles to explore in detective and legal matters."—Erik Spanberg, Christian Science Monitor

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.

Flowed well. Hard to put down

Harry Bosch is an interesting and consistent character. He is flawed personally but a Rockstar at his job. I was worried about him finally "retiring" but I think this new direction has promise. My only criticism is to find a way to make the Bosch - Haller relationship more relatable... can't think of a better word. Their interactions seem stilted. Both characters are likable in their own right, but together it comes off a little rough to me.

This author has hit another home run with this very entertaining novel. We have become accustomed to "can't put em down" books and lucky for us he writes em!!!!! Highly recommend. Keep em coming, please!!

I could say that I read most of Mr. Connelly's books and couldn't wait for the next, even preorded few but this offering fell flat. Very formulatic, generic and short. It happens after a long running great series. I'm sure the next would be good.

PASS ON THIS ONE. Good but not great book by Connelly. I have read every book of his and most are exciting and intricate. The earlier ones better than the later ones. Although The Crossing is well written, a "police procedural" it is too slow, even boring to me. The main characters are the dependable Harry Bosch and his half brother Haller, but nothing particularly great happens. The family dynamics between Harry and his daughter are laughable, you feel some tension but nothing is resolved and the problems are not even brought out into the open. I say SAVE YOUR MONEY and pass on this one.
