I am hoping the ending means we will find out what happened to Daisy. Harry cannot retire. Milky Haller in the courtroom is awesome. Cisco is like the gentle giant. Thanks Mr. Connelly.

Connelly never disapoints. Haller knows how to wrangle a courtroom and Bosch never gives up.

I thought Harry going undercover was a stretch. The rest of the book was what I expect from and enjoy about a Harry Bosch novel.

Two Kinds of Truth does not disappoint. I read it while listening to the audiobook read by Titus Welliver. I cried through the last four chapters. I always want Harry to be safe, but there's his mission you see. But what always gets the waterworks going is seeing what a good man he is but how little happiness he is able to experience. I definitely recommend the book, but if you haven't read the others that came before, you are missing out on one of the most lovable and cherised literary figures of all time. I love you, Harry Bosch.

Harry Bosch is once again being attacked by former colleagues and finding new foes and even when the dust settles he doesn't. He is right, the world isn't and lawyers are lawyers .He looks like Titus Welliver nowadays which is a good thing and it makes us see the books as if on TV even before they are part of the TV series. This book is a good episode. There IS a cliffhanger .And we all want to hang with Harry , hoping he won't be hung or hung out to dry by those bastards. We never see a perspective other than his, we spend the book in his head.Nice place to visit but I wouldn't like to live there. Even so I already miss his melancholy and fairness. It's addicting and this book hits the spot for now.

Call it multitasking. This tale with Harry Bosch has oh so many facets. It is a cornucopia of fascinating cases. Don't know how Connelly just keeps getting better. Carry on Harry,carry on

This book is excellent, as are all the Harry bosch books. I like that the ending suggests at least one more book in the series.

After more than three decades, Harry Bosch finally gets to experience something new in this latest novel in this excellent series. Harry is now working part time at the San Fernando Police Department, solving cold cases, having retired from the LAPD. And the experiences are somewhat unusual. To begin with, Harry faces an accusation he planted evidence in the conviction of a rape-murderer. And to add to the pressure, he volunteers to go undercover after a double murder of two local pharmacists in a drug case. The case for evidence planting comes about when the felon (serving time on San Quentin’s death row) and his attorney file “new” evidence with a review board “proving” the culprit was another person. The undercover assignment has Harry posing as an addict in a criminal enterprise that is so massive it uses planes to transport derelict users from location to location to obtain pills from compliant local pharmacies. Unfortunately, a young man in San Fernando wouldn’t play ball, and he and his father were shot as a result. The plot involving Harry’s reputation gives Mr. Connelly the opportunity to bring in Harry’s half-brother, the Lincoln Lawyer, to provide some light but significant relief from an otherwise deep and heavy story. On the whole, another positive addition to an outstanding series, and one which is highly recommended.

Michael Connelly has written 30 novels, including two previous series featuring memorable protagonists. The first was Harry Bosch, the irascible LA detective, the second the one dubbed the Lincoln Lawyer, who made his office in the car of the same name, and turned out to be Harry’s half-brother, Mickey Haller. The most recent, “The Late Show,” introduced another, detective Renee Ballard, sure to anchor a third series on a par with its excellent predecessors. This book is the newest entry in the Bosch series, every bit as good – make that ‘terrific’ – as the ones that came before. From the publisher: Harry Bosch, exiled from the LAPD after nearly 40 years, is working cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department when he’s called out to a local drugstore where the two pharmacists have been murdered. As Bosch and the tiny town’s three-person detective squad sift through the clues, they are pulled into the dangerous, big-business world of prescription drug abuse. Meanwhile, an old case from Bosch’s past comes back to haunt him when a long-imprisoned killer claims Harry framed him, and he seems to have new evidence to prove it. Bosch left the LAPD on bad terms, so his former colleagues are in no rush to help salvage his reputation. 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. Bosch [and the author] go into great detail about the murder of Danielle Skyler, which resulted in Preston Borders being tried and convicted and placed on Death Row. Harry’s forced retirement from the LAPD 3 years earlier has him now working on cold cases, including a 15-year-old case of a woman named Esme Tavares, officially a missing-persons case because no body had ever been found, which has been haunting Harry for years. But everything has to go on the back burner with the occurrence of the new murder case, that of the father-and-son killings, which appears to revolve around the local incarnation of the national epidemic of opioid addiction, with Harry leading the investigation. At the same time, the newly-formed Conviction Integrity Unit’s investigation into the Skyler case points to Harry as having planted evidence which led to the Borders conviction. The two story lines compete for the reader’s attention and rapidly turning pages as both are detailed in this wonderful novel. The time is the present, evidenced both by the drug dealer, ever-present today in the news, mention of the homeless population in LA as an ongoing problem, as well as by references to our present U.S. President, tainted by news of a possible Russian meddling, and with one character expressing his hope that there will be an impeachment proceeding before too long. All aspects of the plot are developed suspensefully and wonderfully well, and the novel is highly recommended.

I've been binge reading the entire Harry Bosch series. The stories are well written, relevant, and entertaining Mr. Connelly, please keep Harry in action!

I always enjoy reading Michael Connelly's books. I like his straight forward way of writing, and his characters are always interesting for their idiosyncrasies and motives. This story held my attention from the beginning, with Harry working two cases at once; one a double murder in a pharmacy, the other reworking a case he solved years ago, only to have his integrity questioned by the criminal he put away all those years ago. It made for a very interesting premise. Harry's actions in working the double murder show the very dedication he is known for, even while the other case is calling it into question. A very good read!
