Some of Connelly’s mysteries are far better than others; his latest is one of the best of the past decade. Harry Bosch, long since departed from the LAPD and in San Fernando working cold cases, is simulta- neously participating in a murder investigation connected to the pro- liferation of OxyContin-related crimes and defending himself from an accusation associated with his own past in L.A. with the help of his half-brother, attorney Mickey Haller. A murderer Bosch was responsible for putting on death row years before claims Bosch framed him and has evidence to prove it. As readers are shuttled back and forth between past and present, one case and the other, we are given a window into the world being created by the OxyCon- tin epidemic—not just physically but politically and fiscally as well—and also into the intricacies of forensic evidence. The action in the drug case is non-stop and heart-stopping, the legal machina- tions involved in attempting to disprove the supposed frame are fascinating, and Bosch’s relationship with his half-brother is as troublesome as ever. Couldn’t put it down.

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).
