The Burning Room

Author:

Michael Connelly

Synopsis:

In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die a decade after the crime. So when mariachi musician Orlando Merced finally succumbs to complications from being shot ten years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Partnered with rookie detective Lucia Soto, Bosch begins to see political dimensions to the case. Soto soon reveals a burning obsession that could make her a loose cannon, while the one piece of evidence they have on the Merced shooting points in a shocking and unexpected direction that could unsettle the very people who want Bosch to close out the case. It's looking like Orlando Merced may not be the investigation's only victim...

The Crossing

Author:

Michael Connelly

Synopsis:

Harry Bosch, newly retired from the LAPD before they could fire him, now finds himself idling in the slow lane, spending his days restoring a classic 1950 Harley instead of chasing down murder suspects. Meanwhile, his attorney, Mickey Haller, sues the police department for forcing him out. But then Mickey tells Harry about one of his cases: a man accused of a brutal murder, who had no connection to the victim, and yet DNA evidence points to his guilt. Although he has nothing solid to support it, Mickey can smell a set-up - and he needs Harry to help him prove it. Though he is reluctant at first, Harry's old instincts soon kick in; and with the help of his former LAPD partner, Lucia Soto, he finds their investigation leading them towards the police department itself...
