Harry Bosch teams up with Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller in the new thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

I just loved this book; every last bit of it

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It would depend on which friend but if the friend liked fast paced mystery-thriller books, yes I would.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It certainly kept me engaged.


What does Titus Welliver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

More than anything, he brings me Bosch. He sounds like I think Bosch should.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was, but I couldn't. I listened every chance I got, though


Any additional comments?

I'm excited to have Bosch and Haller working together. I'd like to see Bosch loosen up a little but that's me.

Bosch Delivers Bigtime

I've read or listened to every book by Connelly. In my opinion, Titus Welliver is by far the best narrator of the 20 odd books in this series. Its only fitting since he plays Bosch in the new tv series. Bosch is a serious character with little emotion or humor. He does not suffer fools, even when they are his family. The narrator has to bring out his humanity without the benefit of a huge personality and Welliver delivers brilliantly.

In the Crossing, Bosch reluctantly agrees to review the murder book of a case his step brother, Mickey Haller of The Lincoln Lawyer fame, is currently working. He is reluctantant because active police forces regard defense attorneys as little better than the criminals they represent. As independent a character as Bosch has always been, he dreads being viewed by his former peers as a sellout. Even in the face of rampant police malpractice, intimidation, ineptitude and criminal behavior, he reluctantly works for an innocent man wo is framed by the police.

I understand Mr. Connelly was a crime reporter for many years. One of the reasons I love his books is the contrasting views he provides us of the justice system from the contrasting eyes of the detectives, press, prosecution, suspects and victims. It is always a complicated, frustrating process to write about. I appreciate the realism he brings to every novel.

So it's another great novel from America's king of police procedurals.
