Publisher's Summary

An old case from his LAPD past threatens Bosch's reputation in a gripping new thriller.

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

Fabulous Harry Bosch

Another fantastic Michael Connolly book I could not stop listening until the end.
I am a fan of Bosch and Mickey Haller, and really love it when they work together. The result of the case against Bosch really caught me off guard, especially when he realised what Haller had done to save him. Both are committed to what they believe. Bosch solved three cases.

Harry works to clear his name in the one case and attempts to resolve the other two. As always, the book was perfectly paced, and the resolutions of all three plot lines were believable and satisfying.

One of my favourite things about Michael Connelly’s books is that he uses his platform to shine light on current social issues and problems. In Two Kinds of Truth, he tackles the widespread, high-dollar world of prescription drug abuse. Connelly realizes that these is no simple solution and refuses to have Harry neatly wrap up this plot line which I liked and respected, but he still highlights the horrific effects on our society and on those who become addicted. The other part of Two Kinds of Truth that I loved was the resolution of the cold case Harry was pursuing. I would not have seen that ending coming in a million years; this is something that always thrills me to pieces – an ending that is not easy to figure out long before the book is done.

Titus Welliver was outstanding with the delivery of the story

Another good Harry Bosch yarn

Good story and plot, but marred by a weakish ending. For all that, certainly worth a listen. Liked narrator and performance.

Brilliant

Michael Connelly does it again I have read all his books and like good wine he gets better and better, he is a gifted story teller. This a wonderfully crafted and narrated book. Love Harry and Micky together. Can’t wait for the next book.

Harry Bosch

Two kind of truth. I have red all Bosch novels and I love them.
In the latest years the story are more compelling and interesting, and this one was up to my expectation. Can’t wait to read the next one, about Daisy and her mom, I hope.

A cracker!!

Oh MC is a master of the crime novel. He elegantly wraps up three cases in a page turner which is beautifully read in the compelling timbre of Titus’s sonorous voice.
Loved it!!

Good story

It was great to have another Bosch story, I am fond of this character, my only gripe with this audio version is the music that is interjected at the most inappropriate moments - I do not understand the need for this it is so annoying.

Loved the book but why must audible put strange music over the end of some chapters. It's really annoying and serves no purpose!

Superb

As ever, Connolly does not disappoint. Two strands intertwine in the story, with Bosch relentless in his cause. Titus Welliver has grown into his character and reads this so well, bringing the story and its participants to life. Excellent

Entertaining and current, Bosch is still the same.


Good pace and action, the new and old find a way into the story with ease and contemporary worries about the opiate scourge and the Trump disregard for truth or the implications of that attitude.
Bosch is still fighting his corner but he is more vulnerable and sentimental; time softens rocks so why not Boch.

I just love these books

Another great story building in the characters of the past. Great books make the characters so real and the impassioned descriptive language colours the story adding a vivid colour to the experience. Really enjoyed the next episode in the what I believe is modern classic

Effectively season 5 of TV Bosch

Highly enjoyable even though it it closely follows season 5 of the TV series.

Thank you Titus Welliver for delivering such a great narration - and also thanks for doing a good job portraying Bosch on the screen.

A very enjoyable listening experience.

Connolly at his best

This has all the elements we come to expect;murder, gangs,parallel story adding tension, courtroom drama with a twist and good old detective work to find the guilty!
Titus Welliver does a great narration, I think of him as Harry Bosch which he is in the TV series and he delivers a Bosch like narration ie ‘just the facts ma’am’ as I imagine Bosch would. Overall a great package for us Bosch fans!

Bosch at his best

This is as good a Bosch thriller as has ever been written. With Harry working on two cases simultaneously, there is never a respite from intrigue or action. Do yourself a favour and set aside a few hours to enjoy this book because you'll not want to stop once you start reading.

Great detective story

If you could sum up Two Kinds of Truth in three words, what would they be?

fast paced

What was one of the most memorable moments of Two Kinds of Truth?

In the plane, about to throw someone out

Which scene did you most enjoy?

When all was reviled and the villains were exposed

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I don't listen to books like that

Any additional comments?

I really enjoy Michael Connelly novels. They have a fast pace with some twists and turns but there is a realism to them.
