Confession time: I have need read a Harry Bosch novel. The series always seemed so daunting to get started, such a long list of books to get started. When Michael Connelly started a new series, The Lincoln Lawyer, a few years ago I jumped at the opportunity to start at the ground floor with a Michael Connelly series, and loved it! Harry Bosch has featured in at least two Mickey Haller books, so I had a brief introduction to the character through the Mickey Haller series. I have also now discovered the TV series starring Titus Welliver as Bosch so when I found out his new novel was a Haller/Bosch crossover I was in, especially with Titus Welliver reading the audiobook.
The Crossing sees Harry Bosch go to work for Mickey Haller. Crossing over from one side of the law to the other. Haller’s usual investigator is out of action and he has a client in desperate need of an ex-homicide detective. Haller is convinced his client is innocent despite DNA evidence to the contrary. Bosch reluctantly agrees to help Haller with the case even though it puts him in opposition with former colleagues. As Bosch digs into the case though it turns out some his former colleagues might not just be the new opposition but might it fact be his case.
Connelly is a master at plotting out his crime novels. He builds the central case of the story piece by piece leaving a single thread for Bosch to pull on. And as Bosch pulls the thread the truth slowly unravels. A masterful display of crime writing that makes me wish I’d be reading Harry Bosch from the beginning.
