Good Read!! Slow start but it builds into a great story one that affects several lives. Harry Bosch is a strong character and deals with all kinds of situations in this book, prescription drug ring, an addict, a missing person and being accused of planting evidence on a case 30 yrs ago
Interesting book.

Two Kinds of Truth is as good as any of the Bosch novels, and I've read them all. I hope Connelly continues to bring back old characters such as Jerry Edgar, Lucia Soto and Cisco in subsequent books. The reappearance of Mickey Haller was especially welcome. I am hoping that Connelly will consider re-directing his time and creative energy by resurrecting Haller in new stand alone novels, and let Renee Ballard sail off into the sunset. On her paddleboard.

Another fine book by Connelly, this time with both Bosch and Heller playing key roles, with Bosch being the main protagonist, but Mickey Heller also integral to the plots. The author writes in a genre that could be called police procedural, but Harry Bosch carries a lot of baggage, so it's always interesting to read how Harry is doing. The good news is he is still learning in his late 60's.

Have read all of Michael Connelly's books & have just loved them all. I couldn't wait to read his latest ones. Couldn't put it down until I was finished. Please keep writing more of harry Bosch

Stunned by LucyBo’s comments re: Harry Bosch being a “political ranter” — ONE direct one-sentence presidential comment from ONE character. One tangential mention —- maybe two? — of an ongoing investigation into possible Russian involvement in the U.S. election which is an actual FACT. That’s it. This is a story about Harry, the evils that opioids cause in several forms, and a past case that threatens to ruin Harry’s reputation. Don’t expect political nuances or ranting. There aren’t any. This is a Harry Bosch story.

Two Kinds proves than even the admirable Connelly will sometimes jump the shark.

Great book!!! Harry Bosch keeps you turning those pages with the solving of his cases. Michael Connelly does not disappoint. The only bad thing is that now I have to wait for the next book.

This is an excellent addition to the Bosch series. Having a little Mickey Haller thrown in is a bonus. The book quickly moved to the Pharmacist murders with their illegal drug angle and the death row killer's bid to get off death row so I knew there were going to be interesting story lines. One of the things I like about Connelly's books is his ability to get you hooked in the first few pages. After that, just keep turning the pages!

Connelly has his now retired LAPD detective, Bosch, working on a volunteer basis on cold cases. He has placed Bosch in 3 different situations in this novel in which Bosch successfully solves a murder involving sale of illicit drugs, a cold case disappearance, and an accusation of evidence tampering from a death row inmate. The longer plot is the one dealing with the sale of illicit drugs in which Connelly lengthily describes the actions of how the pills are bought and distributed. That plot is the more exciting one to read about as Bosch goes undercover and has some adventures posing as a drug addict. The other 2 minor plots are solved within a chapter.One plot features court detail/dialogue so not that interesting, but does show how lawyers get results based on innuendo. A mildly interesting read.

Just a heads up for anyone who reads the comment section before putting a hold on a book, after reading the comment from Lucybo, I was expecting Connelly to go all virtue signalling on the latest American political travesty. Not so, the only derogatory remark about the present president was by a minor character. That's it. I have read all Connelly's fiction (not e-books) and I've never known him to bring politics or product placement (as one nit claimed) into his books. This was good Connelly with the added filip of Mickey Haller and his out of left field lawyerly moves.

Great read and the bonus was the inclusion of Mickey Haller, who is another fascinating character. The story lines are typical Connelly dark themed and sometimes depressing, but captivating. Couldn't put this book down and finished it in one day. The ending seemed to leave the opening of the next book (hopefully). Any Harry Bosch fan will love this book!!

Yet another great Harry Bosch book from Michael Connelly. I remember thinking Connelly was ending the series a few books ago when Bosch retired from the LAPD, but he's found fun ways to continue the series - which is great as Bosch is such a good character. I hope he keeps it going for many more books. Bringing in Mickey Haller is always fun, the story lines interweave and overlap to help with suspense and fit with the Bosch character.

Michael Connelly and Harry Bosch deliver again with TWO KINDS OF TRUTH. Great story lines (always more than one going in his books) related to corruption in the justice system and the epidemic of pain pill consumption with how the bad guys make money on it - lots of money. And, of course there is the usual underlying themes of wasted lives in daily grind of life. Bosch is a guy hovering between retirement and yet still looking for ways to keep his hand in police business - and being an empty nester working maintaining his ties with his only child. I can relate. Great read. Enjoy.

Connelly has fallen in to the ranks of political ranters. He criticizes the current President at every chance and makes his Left leanings apparent. I am so glad I did not buy this book. I will buy no more from Connelly. As soon as fiction books become a lecture on political views, I will pass.

Terrific, may be one of the best Harry Bosh books. Great plot, well developed characters and a bit of a lesson about the "two kinds of truth" as Harry defines them. Start it and you'll just want to keep reading. Highly recommended

Pure Bosch with a Haller grand finale!

[Interesting that after reading this novel, I heard a news segment on Progressive Fake News in Seattle {Counterspin, pathetic fakey show from Faire.org}, which sounded as if the opiate addiction problem was Trump's fault - - and no, I did NOT vote for him, never voted for ANY republicon - - but reported absolutely no content on the opiate problem. This novel gave us far more information: such as the Big Pharma profit-chain {extra-strength laxatives targeted at the opiate addict population, et cetera,} and Counterspin never mentioned that, nor that congress has stopped the IRS from investigating all the Medicare/Medicaid fraud involved, which involves organized crime with the opiate peddling, et cetera! When you can get more from reading a Bosch novel than from any so-called progressive {actually Fake} news from Counterspin/Faire, you know just how useless all the general fake news/progressive fake news/ alternative fake news, really is. At least Ronan Farrow is doing Real News!]
