The 20th Bosch novel: Harry Bosch searches for the truth as an old case from his LAPD days comes back to haunt him in this gripping thriller from mega-bestseller Michael Connelly.

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 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.

Review by Sarah McDuling

Bosch is back! Two Kinds of Truth is the 20th book in the Harry Bosch series and it’s exactly the kind of book I have come to expect from Michael Connelly – i.e. a pitch perfect, utterly gripping, superbly paced, cleverly plotted thriller that kept me up all night, determined to stay awake until I reached the end.

It takes real talent to keep a series running for so long without losing momentum. After 20 books, you might reasonably expect a series to be getting stale but if anything the Harry Bosch series gets better and better with each new instalment. And each new book somehow manages to make me love Harry Bosch even more!

In this latest book, we find a world-weary and weathered Bosch working as a volunteer cold case detective for the San Fernando Police Department after three years away from the LAPD. Drawn into an investigation of one of his old cases, Bosch must find a way to clear himself from accusations of planting evidence and ensure that a convicted killer remains behind bars. Luckily he gets some help from his half-brother Mickey Haller (The Lincoln Lawyer).

Meanwhile, at the same time Bosch is drawn into an investigation with the DEA involving a prescription drug dealing scheme which inevitably leads him into a whole world of trouble. And so we get to follow our favourite lone wolf hero as he hunts down the truth with his usual style of dogged determination.

This is a great new addition to one of my favourite long-running series and is bound to please all the Bosch fans out there. After the launch of his new series earlier this year with The Late Show, Michael Connelly has spoiled us again with yet another top-notch, wholly engrossing thriller.

Michael Connelly

About the Author

Michael Connelly decided to become a writer after discovering the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Once he decided on this direction he chose a major in journalism and a minor in creative writing — a curriculum in which one of his teachers was novelist Harry Crews.

After graduating in 1980, Connelly worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, primarily specializing in the crime beat. In Fort Lauderdale he wrote about police and crime during the height of the murder and violence wave that rolled over South Florida during the so-called cocaine wars. In 1986, he and two other reporters spent several months interviewing survivors of a major airline crash. They wrote a magazine story on the crash and the survivors which was later short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. The magazine story also moved Connelly into the upper levels of journalism, landing him a job as a crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, one of the largest papers in the country, and bringing him to the city of which his literary hero, Chandler, had written.

After three years on the crime beat in L.A., Connelly began writing his first novel to feature LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch. The novel, The Black Echo, based in part on a true crime that had occurred in Los Angeles, was published in 1992 and won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by the Mystery Writers of America. Connelly has followed that up with 18 more novels. Connelly's books have been translated in 35 languages and have won the Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award, Los Angeles Times Best Mystery/Thriller Award, Shamus Award, Dilys Award, Nero Award, Barry Award, Audie Award, Ridley Award, Maltese Falcon Award (Japan), .38 Caliber Award (France), Grand Prix Award (France), and Premio Bancarella Award (Italy).

Michael was the President of the Mystery Writers of America organization in 2003 and 2004. In addition to his literary work, Michael was one of the creators, writers, and consulting producers of Level 9, a TV show about a task force fighting cyber crime, that ran on UPN in the Fall of 2000. Michael lives with his family in Florida.
