My Review of “The Crossing” by Michael Connelly

The Crossing (Harry Bosch, #18; Mickey Haller, #6; Harry Bosch Universe, #27)

The Crossing by Michael Connelly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Our hero Harry Bosch is at it again with this thrilling mystery by from one of the greatest authors of our time Michael Connelly. To all of the Bosch fans out there this one doesn’t disappoint. The book has it all thrills, spills and even Mickey Haller to boot.

Connelly does his usual excellent job of telling the story as a great author should. The characters are deep, in-depth. likable and believable. In m opinion, Bosch is still and always will be the greatest detective around.

If you enjoy a great Mystery as yours truly does, I definitely recommend you pick this one up. However, I have to warn you, once you start turning the pages (or swiping the screen) it’s almost impossible to put down until the last page.

Happy Reading
Michael

    1. Honestly, I’ve never seen one of the shows but I do plan on it because Bosch has always been my absolute favorite detectives. He is so believable and likable in my opinion. I heard the show is pretty good as well, I guess I don’t want to see Bosch in any other way than the one I’ve created in my head. Alex Cross is another favorite of mine and I’ve read all the books in that series as well.

      Now, I do think that Morgan Freeman was the best Alex Cross and that is who I will always envision as Cross, even though I didn’t like the portrayal of Samson. The books says Samson is a very tall and formidable man where the actor that played him was a short man (I can’t remember his name). But Morgan Freeman will always be Alex Cross in my mind.

      1. I completely agree with your assessment. Maybe for me it was because Freeman was the first I saw in the role? Maybe it’s because that is really how I pictured Alex Cross to look like, I’m not sure. Perry did an excellent job, and being Detroit’s favorite son myself I loved the fact that one of my favorite detectives was in a movie featured in the MotorCity. But even that was all wrong with me.

        Everyone knows Cross is in D.C. so both those things combined just left me wanting. Although I would love to see more POSITIVE movies using Detroit as the backdrop. The one thing Perry had was his size, Cross, like Samson are both big men in height and stature.
