Overview

Harry Bosch teams 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. The murder rap against his client seems ironclad, but Mickey is sure it’s a setup. Though it goes against all his instincts, Bosch takes the case. With the secret help of his former LAPD partner Lucia Soto, he turns the investigation inside the police department. But as Bosch gets closer to discovering the truth, he makes himself a target.

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

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.
