Description

Exiled from the LAPD, Harry Bosch must clear his name, uncover a ring of prescription drug abuse, and outwit a clever killer before it's too late.
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).

    Extremely well written - if one wants to stretch for a negative - you can make the case that the ending of the story dragged and lingered a bit too long
  • Always the best

    I can always count on Michael Connelly to write a really good book.

    Normally I have a hard time putting these books down but this one did not keep my interest throughout. The book seemed to be disjointed as if written by different authors. Must be time to completely retire Bosch and find a new character.

    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.

    People are good, people are bad. Who knows where we will all come out
  • Bosh needs to retire before he keels over.

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

    Couldn’t put it down. Interesting plot with some good “curveballs”. Great characters.
