Harry Bosch is back as a volunteer working cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department and is called out to a local drug store where a young pharmacist has been murdered. Bosch and the town's 3-person detective squad sift through the clues, which lead into the dangerous, big business world of pill mills and prescription drug abuse.

Meanwhile, an old case from Bosch's LAPD days 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 aren't keen to protect his reputation. He must fend for himself in clearing his name and keeping a clever killer in prison.

The two unrelated 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.

[Two Kinds of Truth] is a reflection of Connelly's talent that after 19 books chronicling Bosch's career, this iteration feels fresh and authentic. This is Bosch at his F-you best, pursuing his mission, seeking justice and speaking for the dead.The Arizona RepublicThe best crime fiction writer alive today...The interaction between the trash-talking, playful Haller and the stoic, moody, mission-driven Bosch is wonderful.

“Narrator Titus Welliver portrays Detective Harry Bosch…In a gravelly and sometimes growling voice, Welliver lets Bosch’s indignation shine when the facts are revealed and takes on a softer and loving tone when Bosch deals with friends and family. Fans will love the climax and the promise of more Harry Bosch and, one hopes, more Welliver. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

The 20th novel in Connelly's Bosch series is one of its best.Entertainment Weekly[Connelly's] immaculate plotting and gift for bringing procedural intricacies to life now seem as strong as ever...he writes the best detective novels around.Charles Finch, USA TodayHarry Bosch is a one-of-a-kind hero who started out pretty wild when he returned from Vietnam to become a cop, but over the years he's developed into someone you want to ride with.Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

“One of Connelly’s darkest and most powerful stories yet about Bosch.”

Tampa Bay Times

“Connelly is one of the few authors who can use the idea of truthiness as a springboard for a gripping thriller about corruption, opioids, politics, and the minutiae of a police investigation…Connelly superbly builds the two plots, making each story line smooth and seamless. Connelly avoids the cliché of linking the two cases, keeping each separate while allowing Harry to constantly be thinking of both. A sense of urgency imbues each…It’s become an annual refrain—but Connelly truly is one of the finest mystery writers. And that’s the truth.”

Sun Sentinel (Florida)

“Expertly juggling both plots, Connelly mines the double murder for fascinating and frightening details…Connelly remains atop a heap of contemporary crime writers thanks to his rare ability to combine master plotting and procedural detail with a literary novelist’s feel for the inner lives of his or her characters. Both talents are in abundant display this time.”
