The crossing

The crossing

Connelly, Michael, 1956- author

Harry Bosch 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 defence, aiming to prevent the accused, Leland Foster, from being convicted. But not only does the prosecution seem to have a cast-iron case, having crossed over to 'the dark side', as his former LAPD colleagues would put it, is Harry in danger of betraying the very principles he's lived by his whole career?

Reviews

Enter Harry Bosch, one of the finest minds in crime fiction. He understands the trajectories of bullets and also political careers. Connelly loves to watch him think, and so do I.
EVENING STANDARD||Fast detective action is skilfully interwoven with courtroom pyrotechnics.
THE INDEPENDENT||It's jaw-dropping that after 27 bestsellers he's still scaling new heights with every book, and this one is a double delight because it features both detective Harry Bosch and his half-brother, ducking and diving defence lawyer Mickey Haller.
PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH||Vintage Bosch
CRIME VAULT PODCAST||As ever, Connelly's produced a solid police procedural, gripping right to the end.
MORNING STAR||Intensely satisfying and featuring two of the smartest creations in modern crime fiction, this is as elegant a masterpiece as Connelly has delivered.
DAILY MAIL||When Michael Connelly is on form, as he is with The Crossing, he is irresistible.
IRISH TIMES||Connelly spins an intricate web in this brilliant anti-police procedural.
