    PDF/EPUB american fiction.co ✓ The Crossing ePUB ¶ crossing epub, The Crossing EpubThe twenty third entry in this excellent series is among the very best and that's saying uite a lot As an LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch has pretty much always gone his own way often alienating his bosses partners and others but almost always producing results in the end that no one else could have achieved Finally though he goes a step too far and although he solves a particularly complex case his methods give his snarky boss a chance to finally get rid of him Harry pulls the pin and takes retirement before that can happen and he then sues th

    PDF/EPUB american fiction.co ✓ The Crossing ePUB ¶ crossing epub, The Crossing EpubMichael Connelly is a class act and in Harry Bosch he’s created one of the best crime stoppers in contemporary fiction – fact Connelly has also demonstrated an ability to branch off and develop additional compelling characters like Mickey Haller The Lincoln Lawyer He’s previously brought Bosch and Haller together and established a link but here for the first time he pairs them up to work in unison on a caseThe idea of working with Haller to defend a man accused of a brutal murder is initially repellent to Bosch it goes against the grain and he’s worried about the reaction it will prompt from his ex colleagues in the LAPD Suffice to say he sets about satisfying himself that there is justification in committing to this course of act

    PDF/EPUB american fiction.co ✓ The Crossing ePUB ¶ crossing epub, The Crossing EpubAnother well done Harry Bosch novel This time Harry is playing for the opposing side helping his half brother Micky Haller He struggles for a long time with the whole idea of crossing over to the dark side as he thinks of the defense As always this is a convoluted tale with lots of twists and turns Even though you know who the bad guys are it's the means by which Harry unravels the clues that provides the intrigue I listened to the audio book and the narrator does a good job He even sounds like I would expect Harry to sound It's not that he attempts to crea

    PDF/EPUB american fiction.co ✓ The Crossing ePUB ¶ crossing epub, The Crossing EpubHarry Bosch is officially retired from the LAPD after having been forced out for of course political agendas He’s not going out uietly and has hired brother Mickey Haller to represent him in his suit against the city When Mickey asks him to serve as his investigator for a client he’s certain is innocent obviously Harry is reluctant to play on the team for the “other side” but agrees to look into it for him The he probes the he’s convinced that Mickey’s client was set up to cover up something much sinister When I learned that Harry and Mickey would be teamed for this story I set my expectations pretty high and they were surpassed This was skilled writing because the Haller stories have a much different vibe from the Bosch ones but Connelly effectively integrated the two The case was intricate n

    PDF/EPUB american fiction.co ✓ The Crossing ePUB ¶ crossing epub, The Crossing EpubSuperb as always A few political glitches that maybe half or less of readers will notice Beyond that Connelly doesn't waste a clue and develops Bosch even further when he crosses double meaning in the title to defense work to catch a killerWonderful pacing and as always I like the southern Cal

    PDF/EPUB american fiction.co ✓ The Crossing ePUB ¶ crossing epub, The Crossing EpubThere is an elegance to this police procedural but an emotional flatness had me rating it as average among the many great ones in the series Harry Bosch’s pursuit of small clues slowly begin to open doors on a tough case and as he gets closer murders help convince him he is in the right track But he better put it together fast and good because he is liable to become a target too He may still be the “Lone Coyote” but his teenaged daughter needs him so he better take careThe brutal rapes and murder of a fashion ueen leads to the arrest of a black man who has reformed his life from gang activity in his youth His DNA from semen is identified at the scene and his alibi is weak Harry’s half brother Mickey Haller aka “The Lincoln Lawyer” is defending this suspect and persuades Harry to consider serving as his investigator on the case Harry has time on his hands due to a forced retirement but working for a defense case would ruin his reputation and
