Book Review - The Crossing

Michael Connelly is a reliable author and his Harry Bosch character proves  steady. In  The Crossing, Harry is retired but pulled back into the game and even crosses over to the other side to help the defense. Mickey Haller (The Lincoln Lawyer) needs him to investigate on the down low, but of course that is impossible to maintain. A woman’s been murdered and Haller’s client, a former gang member, has been charged. But the more Harry digs, the more it looks like a set up. Lots of arrows point to an inside the police system problem.


Harry keeps digging and soon finds a trail of murders connected to a watch, a plastic surgeon, and more. Connelly builds suspense and as a reader you will enjoy pulling together the clues. Harry is reluctant and yet he’s bored as a retired officer. He’d rather be in the trenches, reading murder reports, and doing follow-up face to face. This is a very satisfying read that keeps you dodging bullets and rooting for Harry.

  1. Sounds like an engrossing story. I like those that keep you tied up in what's happening and pull you along through the plot.

  4. Sounds like an interesting story! I like crime fiction, but for some reason crime series about "a hardened male detective" doesn't really resonate well with me.

  9. The pacing is deliberate and measured, until it builds to a classic Connelly ending. Any fan will enjoy this upcoming release, as it fits nicely into the Harry Bosch series. A great read.
