Danielle "Danny" Cross is the wife of former LAPD detective Lawton Cross, Jr. When her husband became paraplegic, she became his caregiver. In 2002 when Harry Bosch came to visit, she objected to Bosch giving her husband liquor because it would make him much worse the next day. Bosch was uncertain whether she was abusing her huband, so he placed a surveillance device in their home. The video showed that she was not abusive. When Bosch visited again to pick up old case files, she assisted him. When Bosch visited the final time to confront Lawton Cross with a murder allegation, he advised Danielle to leave her husband or be dragged down with him.
