The Crossing Hardback
Part of the Harry Bosch Series series
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, Da'Quan 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.

Review by infjsarah
Excellent read. I love the Bosch books and this was a really good installment. I was lucky enough to be first in the library queue for it and it was devoured in 2 days. Although Mickey Haller is part of the cast, he in fact is not on stage much and I was glad of that because although I read the Haller books, I much prefer the Bosch novels. Bosch is finally sort of retired but as anyone who knows the character could predict, he's bored. He fears helping his defence lawyer half brother but injustice pushes all his buttons and he reluctantly agrees to help. The novel is slightly unusual in that you know who the bad guys are all along. And I must admit I half expected <spoiler>Bosch to die at the end</spoiler>Very, very enjoyable.
