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 ).

Harry Bosch #21

Connelly’s Harry Bosch is a man whose moral compass is clearly defined: north-south, good-bad, moral-immoral. So, what happens when Bosch finds himself with not one but two cases that push him into a far-less-comfortable position of moral ambiguity? And what happens when those around him, despite looking out for his best interest lean into this moral gray zone with skill and expertise that Bosch himself lacks? Can there be moments in life when the end really does justify the means? When playing loose with rules, ethics, and morals can be justified in service of a larger good? Add to this some solid exposition on the pharma industry, the justice system, and the mortgage markets (think Michael Lewis’s The Big Short), and you have a rare hybrid of entertainment and information.
For a related and equally compelling take on the opioid crisis, search out Bethany McLean’s “Bitter Pill” in the August 2019 issue of Vanity Fair.

Always exceptional writing. MC is the height of mastercraft writing. I learned so much that I'd never truly understood about the housing foreclosure business & how lawyers jumped in; mortgage failure; the prescription drug business & epidemic use of Rx drugs; the failure of oversight and criminal activity by civilian/law enforcement. Simply an all around informative read.
