The Crossing by Michael Connelly

Advance Reading Copy ~ Paperback Edition
I received an advanced readers copy of The Crossing by Michael Connelly through the Goodreads Giveaway program for FREE. This is the third novel I've read by Michael Connelly. I listened to and reviewed the audio versions of The Reversal and The Brass Verdict.

Below is my honest, unbiased review of The Crossing by Michael Connelly.

The Crossing by Michael Connelly is the 18th novel in the Harry Bosch Series. I enjoyed reading The Crossing by Michael Connelly. The storyline, characters, and plot are decent. But as much as I enjoyed reading The Crossing by Michael Connelly, I wasn't overly wowed by it. The first chapter, for instance, didn't hook me in right away and actually left me wondering what was going on. I actually didn't warm up to The Crossing by Michael Connelly until quite a few chapters into the novel... But then things took off and The Crossing by Michael Connelly picked up and kept me interested as to how things would finally turn out. 

The following is the plot summary for The Crossing by Michael Connelly from Amazon:
Harry Bosch crosses the line to team up with Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller in the thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling 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 am giving The Crossing by Michael Connelly a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. Interesting. My husband has read all of his books and we have his newest one on hold at the library for him. I have only read one, The Late Show, in which he introduces a female detective. I liked it. Sorry this one did not work for you.

    1. I enjoyed reading the two previous novels I read by Michael Connnelly.

  2. Too bad this one didn't work for you. I follow a blogger who is a die out fan. Is it possible that you did not like it as much because you don't follow the series?
