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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    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.

    "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

    Excellent pace and tone in the performance
    of this spellbinding tale of believable characters and plausible situations. Great mix of detective and courtroom. Sustained me well through a couple of long bike rides.

    "Another brilliant book!!"
    What does Titus Welliver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    So much of the enjoyment of a book is in the narration. It's not that I didn't LIKE Titus Welliver, but more that I have become accustomed to hearing more gritty voice of say Dick Hill or Len Cariou. That's not to say that after not too long, you forget it's not the same voice and the story takes over, but I'm a bit OCD about things and I like to hear one voice read all the stories! So just 4* as he isn't what I'm familiar with - not his fault!


    Any additional comments?

    I've just binge-listened to the last four HB books one after the other! What a treat! I'm not sure how I'm going to cope without his grizzly gritty view of the world! I was interested to see where this book would take him after the end of the last book and I wasn't disappointed. If you already enjoy listening to the HB saga, then you won't be disappointed. If you are new to him, my wholehearted recommendation is that you start at the beginning. His past is obviously so much of who he is now, you can only truly understand if you go through it with him. It's worth it!

    I really enjoyed The Crossing as an audiobook, Connelly is my favourite writer and Titus Wallner does an incredible job as a narrator. This is the first time that I have really enjoyed listening above reading.

    Where does The Crossing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Joining Harry up with the Lincoln Lawyer - what could be better?


    What did you like best about this story?

    Once I started I just didn't want to stop listening


    What about Titus Welliver’s performance did you like?

    Narration, works so smoothly, brings story to life


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

    Certainly


    Any additional comments?

    There should be more films!!!
