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 Truthis proof positive that "Connelly writes cops better than anyone else in the business" (New York Post).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could not put it down! Michael Connelly does it again, you will find it hard to put this book down is the only the first thing I will say. Harry Bosch is really put through his paces with this book and you will wonder how it will all work out! The sadistic killer he helped put away 29 years ago is saying he planted evidence and his former partner seems to believe the bad guy! That is only one of his problems is this book. He looks to his half brother the Lincoln Lawyer for help. Such a good book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic mystery I love Bosch books. Especially when they include Haller. This book did, so I was thrilled with it right from the start. This story began with the murder of two pharmacists. The investigation leads to pill mills and Bosch going undercover to find the head of the organization pushing fake prescriptions. This takes them to the doctors and pharmacists who are in on the scam. It was scary stuff but Bosch handled it like the pro he is. Being retired didn't sit well with Harry so he volunteered at a small police department to clear some cold cases. He likes working these cases and is good at solving them so it's right up his alley. Having him there worked out for everybody because the department didn't have funding for this work. In the meantime, a case from 30 years ago came back to cause problems for Harry. A man he had put on Death Row was trying to get his conviction overturned. There was new DNA evidence making it look as though Bosch had been incompetent in his investigation. The prisoner was also saying Harry had planted evidence. In order to protect his reputation and make sure the department didn't get sued, Harry needed to prove that he had been right about the man being guilty. This was an incredibly well-written book. With 2 crimes being investigated, it was a bit confusing at times. But the author gave enough details on both investigations that the story was easy to follow. As always, Connelly has written a fantastic mystery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Bosch still has game How do you keep a retirement age detective interesting? Make him mad....twice. The first plot is the usual premise, a murder that looks routine but is anything but. Add in some LAPD politics with some old adversaries looking for revenge and a book is born. Harry is not about to ride off into the retirement sunset without justice being served. Even with justice being served in this book, there are still a large number of cases that will haunt Bosch and we are hoping retirement is not an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best Bosch stories yet! Two Kinds of Truth is the 22nd book in Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series. And although I have enjoyed each and every one of those previous books, I have to say that this latest is a stand out for me. Harry is still working as a volunteer cold case detective for the San Fernando Police Department. But when two pharmacists are murdered, Harry is called upon to help out the small three person detective unit. Connelly takes inspiration for this case from current headlines - pill mills, organized crime and addiction. His plotting for this case is absolutely addicting. Now I say 'this case' as there is another. Exiled from the LAPD, Harry has moved on. Bu,t he's pulled back into the past when a convict on death row accuses Harry of framing him - and new evidence seems to prove that. Can Harry prove his innocence? "In his career, he had chased down hundreds of killers and put them in prison. If he was wrong about one, then it would put the lie to everything else." Another fantastic - and clever - plot line. There are some harrowing twists in the solving of this case and I worried about Harry's making it out alive. Harry is run ragged trying to work both the double murder and trying to clear his name. Mickey Haller (The Lincoln Lawyer and Harry's half brother) makes an appearance. I love the crossover appearances. At one point, Harry's age is mentioned - he's over sixty five. (which surprised me as I see him as timeless) Connelly has kept this series moving along in real time both professionally and personally for Harry. Daughter Maddie is also heard from. Harry is an eminently likeable lead character. His tenacity, his doggedness and just who he is have made him one of my favourite detectives. Connelly's supporting cast is always well drawn as well. I have a fondness for Lourdes, the lone female detective in the squad. The origins for a book's title always intrigue me. In this case it's from Harry..."He knew there were two kinds of truth in this world. The truth that was the unalterable bedrock of one's life and mission. And the other, malleable truth of politicians, charlatans, corrupt lawyer, and their clients, bent and molded to serve whatever purpose was at hand." There's no doubt as to Harry's truth. I binge read Two Kinds of Truth and finished it far too quickly - but it was so very, very good! Absolutely recommended!
