Publisher's Summary

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, Leland 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.

Read by the star of Bosch, Titus Welliver.

    "A good story read by a fantastic Narrator"

    I liked the story and reasonably average complexity. I wouldn't call it a cliff hanger but it was intriguing and enjoyable enough to want to keep listening. I was even more impressed by the narrator, who could jump from one character to another with ease. The characters sounded like truly different people, yet it was all the one narrator. The only thing I found slightly annoying at times was the gravely voice got a little bit too gravely (almost that forced 'vocal fry' sound). However that's more my personal view. As maybe a gravely voice is well suited for a crime novel.

    That said I will be definitely be looking for this Narrator, Titus Welliver again, he was awesome!

    "Grey haired Bosch working for the dark side!"

    Loved it. With a teenage grandaughter and grandson myself I thought the author had nailed Maddie 's characterisation. Realistic court room scenes. Upto date references such as Bosch ' s use of Uber which has just been legalized in my part of the world. Maybe a little too much glossing over the shooting incidents. Maybe unrealistic but helped by excellent drama build up and again Bosch being dragged into the 21st century use of smart phones. Great read and Tolliver nailed it!

    "Another Gripping Story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Crossing the most enjoyable?

    In addition to the gripping story, the development of the relationships between Bosch and Haller ans Bosch and his daughter.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I did not like the narrator. He used the same voice for all the characters. Once or twice I thought Haller was speaking when it was Bosch and vice versa.


    Any additional comments?

    It was good to have both Bosch and Haller together in one novel.

    "Very disapointing"
    What disappointed you about The Crossing?

    I have listened to or read everything that Michael has written. This is probably his lowest moment. The plot is extremely improbable and at the same time predictable because it follows the old rogue cop plot that has been used so many times before.
    This is so bad that I have difficulty in believing that Michael wrote this


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The new John Grisham


    Which character – as performed by Titus Welliver – was your favorite?

    Probably Haller


    Any additional comments?

    I will continue to listen to Michael Connelly because he is such a great story teller. I just hope he can recover from this sad effort.

    "Good, but not the best Bosch/Haller"

    As usual, Connelly is strong on procedure, and the story grips. I like the interplay between Bosch and Haller. Superb performance by Titus Welliver, who will always be Bosch in my mind now after the excellent Amazon series. Where this falls down for me is on the motivation of the rogue cops. A bit too dastardly. But don't let that stop you....

    Another well written book by Michael Connelly. I like the connection between Bosch and Haller and enjoyed the twists in the story, and how they all came together in the end.

    "Connolly and Welliver - a brilliant combination."

    Titus Welliver's performances in TV's Bosch series perfectly reflects the character in the books and was without flaw. His reading of this book is superb, far superior to any narrators of previous Bosch audiobooks. The storyline is as good as ever, Connolly never fails to come up with the goods. Here's hoping this is the first of many collaborations.

    Story
    "Joining the dark side is hard to do"


    Bosch and his brother defence attorney Mickey Haller have joined forces, in what is a first for Bosh. Working for the defence is not something a detective does lightly, the department frowns on this and is considered a form of treason. The adversarial atmosphere invades all logic or understanding of truth or fairness, but Harry wants to find the truth and tells everyone that he will let the chips fall where they may.

    A good solid story with lots of procedural, forensics and some court time, the politics and the bickering are kept to a minimum and so is the romancing. This is about investigating, finding and proving a case.

    Classic Bosch dry with a twist of lemon and some Wynton Marsalis on the side.

    I personally like the reading of this book it has no histrionics and is delivered dispassionately, like you imagine Harry Bosch would do it.

    "Great story, keeps you guessing"

    Bosch is his usual self, very thorough with his investigation. Good to see him working without his LAPD badge, he has to improvise to get people to talk to him. Story needs more of Mikey Haller though.

    "Half a good detective story"

    This had me gripped until about halfway when the killers' motives and the silly connections began to unravel. Process and psychology of Bosch excellent, although the (now obligatory in American detective fiction) two dimensional relationship with his daughter was superfluous snd boring. Great voice but not one of his best in terms of story
