Harry Bosch, exiled from the LAPD, is working cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department when all hands are called out to a local drugstore, where two pharmacists have been murdered in a robbery. Bosch and the tiny town's three-person detective squad sift through the clues, which lead into the dangerous, big-business world of prescription drug abuse. To get to the people at the top, Bosch must risk everything and go undercover in the shadowy world of organized pill mills.
Meanwhile, an old case from Bosch's days with the LAPD comes back to haunt him when a long-imprisoned killer claims Harry framed him and seems to have new evidence to prove it. Bosch left the LAPD on bad terms, so his former colleagues are not keen on protecting his reputation. But if this conviction is overturned, every case Bosch ever worked will be called into question. As usual, he must fend for himself as he tries to clear his name and keep a clever killer in prison.
The two cases wind around each other like strands of barbed wire. Along the way, Bosch discovers that there are two kinds of truth: the kind that sets you free and the kind that leaves you buried in darkness.
Tense, fast-paced, and fueled by this legendary detective's unrelenting sense of mission, Two Kinds of Truth is proof positive that "Connelly writes cops better than anyone else in the business" (New York Post).

    Perhaps Connelly’s best book yet. Superb plotting enhanced by a writer whose characters have improved with age thanks to the growing skills of the author. Connelly has become a superb writer.
  • An all nighter!

    Couldn’t put it down. Harry Bosch undercover at his age? Fantastic idea. And an encouragement to us growing in years along with him. Court scene with Haller? Hanging on every word. Great intertwine of cases, friends and family. Insights into Harry’s relationship with biological father pulls at the heart. Thanks for the years of sharing these characters, Mr. Connelly. Looking forward to next chapter in the lives of Harry and Haller.
  • Bosh needs to retire before he keels over.

    Slow but stick with it, the ending is equally disappointing.

    A very good read. Only one thing wrong with a Harry Bosch tale: you are going to finish it then must wait a year or so for Connelly’s next.

    IT RAMBLED ON AND ON TOO MUCH, THE CONCLUSION OF THE PHARMACUTICAL CRIME WANTS REWRITING AS IT ENDED TOO EASLY.

    As expected, this is again, an out of the ballpark home run.

    Could not wait to put it down. What a stinker. I’m not even sure that MC wrote this. One star because it is a Michael Connelly book which I used to like.
