Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” AudioFile
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. USA Today
One of Connelly's darkest and most powerful stories yet about Bosch. Tampa Bay Times
The best crime fiction writer alive today...The interaction between the trash-talking, playful Haller and the stoic, moody, mission-driven Bosch is wonderful. The brothers are two kinds of crafty, masters in their own realm...Gut-wrenching...The final courtroom scene will make longtime Connelly fans stand up and cheer. Oklahoman
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. Booklist
[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. Arizona Republic
TWO KINDS OF TRUTH is a sterling example of the full potential of [Bosch and Ballard] fully realized. Anyone interested in their literary exploits can jump on this particular offering without difficulty and enjoy the ride from beginning to end. BookReporter
“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.” Booklist
