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.… (mais)

SERIES:
Harry Bosch, Book 20 [depending on how you count] (31st novel by the author)

MAIN CHARACTERS:
Harry Bosch – Private Investigator / Part-time volunteer Detective at San Fernando Police Department
Mickey Haller – Defense attorney
Dennis (Cisco) Wojciechowski – Mickey Haller’s private investigator (this character is named after the author’s real-life investigator, according to Wikipedia. (I didn’t really need Wikipedia for this, except to learn exactly what the real Dennis was to Connelly. It was obvious he was named after a friend when he was in the “Thanks” section. He may have even had one of the books dedicated to him—can’t recall now.)
Captain Trevino – Captain at the San Fernando Police Department
Bella Lourdes – Detective in Crimes against persons unit--Partners-up with Bosch’s at the San Fernando Police Department
Danny Sisto – Detective at San Fernando Police Department
Anthony Valdez – Chief at San Fernando Police Department
Lucia Soto – Bosch’s former partner at LAPD
Jerry Edgar – Another of Bosch’s former partners. He’s moved on from the LAPD and may prove helpful in this most recent set of events.

SUMMARY/ EVALUATION:
Having watched all 6 seasons of the tv series—probably 2 or more times, and then it’s been a while since I read or watched the “episode” I confuse this with, but it’s similar to another one where a convict might be released. So, I thought I might know what would happen, but between confusing the episodes, and the tv plots not following the book plots in every detail, I didn’t always know.
I like the way the author always manages to have a couple (at least) of cases going at one time and usually manages to tie them together. There was one place though, where a tie-up of loose strings seemed to come out of left field. We were introduced to a case in the beginning of the book, and so much had happened with other cases since then that I’d forgotten about it. It felt like a new story was starting just when I thought it was winding down. I had to wrack my brain to remember the character and circumstances, but I finally put it together.

AUTHOR:
Michael Connelly (7/21/56). This time, info is from his website—Born in Philadelphia, AP. Moved to Florida at the age of 12 (so that’d be 1968?) Inspired by the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Chose the major of journalism with a minor in creative writing. One of his teachers was novelist Harry Crews. Graduated in 1980. Worked at newspapers in Daytona and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specializing mostly in the crime beat. A magazine article he co-wrote elevated his stature for the likes of the Los Angeles Times, which brought him here to California.
I don’t think any other writer rises to the height for me that Connelly does in creating characters, creating plots, bringing characters together, tying cases together, and strewing everything with data, facts, current events, and true police and court procedure. His primary characters have heart and morals (and a few, but not many, flaws) and he doesn’t feel the need to fill dialog with vulgarity. Oh yes, and I love the sprinkling of Jazz info.
I’m glad Connelly is such a prolific writer as I am now getting close to having caught up on everything (novel-wise) that he has written. But I confess, we’ve been binge-listening to these for a good while now and having to wait an entire year between stories is going to be tough.

NARRATOR:
Titus Welliver (3/12/1962)
The most comprehensive biography page I have seen on Titus so far is “Rotten Tomatoes. Be advised though that the leading sentence begins with “Titus Welliver was an American Actor . . .” as though he no longer exists. This is not the case. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/titus_welliver
I'm curious about the other narrations Welliver has done--mostly the chronology-like, were the Robert Parker novels he narrated before or after the first Bosch book he narrated, because I still stand by my sense that the first book he did in this series had very little voice variation, but the subsequent books have had really great vocal characterizations. I'd have to listen to that first one again to be sure, and to see if the story just didn't lend itself to much variation.

GENRE:
Mystery, fiction, suspense, thriller

LOCATIONS:
Los Angeles, San Fernando, Orange, California desert near the Salton Sea

SUBJECTS:
Murder, Police Procedure, Addicts, Drug Cartels, Undercover, DEA

SAMPLE QUOTATION:
From Chapter 1
"‘Actually, we talked to your Captain Trevino, and he says we can use the war room over in the detective bureau,’ Tapscott said. ‘It will be more comfortable. Do you mind?’
‘I don’t mind if the captain doesn’t mind,’ Bosch said. ‘What’s this about anyway?’
‘Preston Borders,’ Soto said.
Bosch was walking toward the open door cell. The name put a slight pause in his step.
‘Let’s wait until we’re in the war room,’ Kennedy said quickly. ‘Then we can talk.’
Soto gave Bosch a look that seemed to impart the message that she was under the D.A.’s thumb on this case. He grabbed his keys and the padlock off the desk, stepped out of the cell, and then slid the metal door closed with a heavy clang. The key to the cell had disappeared long ago and Bosch wrapped a bicycle chain around the bars and secured the door with the padlock.
They left the old jail and walked through the Public Works equipment yard out to First Street. While waiting for traffic to pass, Bosch casually pulled his phone out of his pocket and checked for messages. He had received nothing from Soto or anyone else prior to the arrival of the party from downtown. He kept the recording going and put the phone back in his Pocket.
Soto spoke, but not about the case that had brought her up to San Fernando.
‘Is that really your office, Harry?’ she asked. ‘I mean, they put you in a jail cell?’
‘Yep,’ Bosch said. “That was the drunk tank and sometimes I think I can still smell the puke when I open it up in the morning. Supposedly five or six guys hung themselves in there over the years. Supposed to be haunted. But it’s where they keep the cold case files, so it’s where I do my work. They store old evidence boxes in the other two cells, so easy access all around. And usually nobody to bother me.’"

RATING:
I gave this book 5 stars. It's another great story ( )

I have abandoned a lot of series over the year. It is amazing to me how fresh and wonderful the Harry Bosch books are. I am also a big fan of how he has aged through the series. He has become an old friend and I am always a little sad when I finish a book and no it will be awhile before I see him again. ( )

Of all the mysteries I've read in my lifetime, I have to say that Harry Bosch is my favorite detective. His intelligence, his persistence, and his humanity have made him an icon, and his "Everybody counts or nobody counts" is a mantra I use when I find myself eyeing the fast lane on the judgmental vigilante road.

Two Kinds of Truth highlights Bosch's humanity in the way he reacts when he learns that his assumption is wrong in the pharmacy murders and how he reaches out to one of the addicts he meets while undercover. When his daughter learns about the allegations made by the serial killer on Death Row and she actually thinks Harry might have planted evidence, the blow is visceral-- not just for Harry but for the reader as well. Connelly is a master at drawing his readers into the warp and weft of his stories.

Connelly balances his two cases with the staggering scope of prescription drug abuse on one hand while dazzling readers with Mickey Haller's legal sleight of hand in proving his half-brother did not plant evidence to put a serial killer behind bars. This is another compelling addition to this long-running series, and-- the older Bosch gets-- the more I hope he will prove to be immortal.

[Note: As much as I love reading the books, I have to admit that I now prefer listening to the audiobooks narrated by Titus Welliver. I am a fan of the Bosch TV series, and Welliver has become Bosch in my mind.] ( )

I think this is only the 2nd Bosch book I have read, which is surprising because they are so well written.
The wraps 2 different storylines together and while the opiate epidemic story is not that spectacular
The other storyline that questions Bosch’s integrity and ethics from a 30 year old case is truly remarkable storytelling. ( )

Bosch was in cell 3 of the old San Fernando jail, looking through files from one of the Esme Taveres boxes, when a heads-up text came in from Bella Lourdes over in the detective bureau.

He knew there were two kinds of truth in this world. The truth that was the unalterable bedrock of one’s life and mission. And the other, malleable truth of politicians, charlatans, corrupt lawyers, and their clients, bent and molded to serve whatever purpose was at hand.
