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.… (mer)

Excellent addition to the Bosch series, with three stories: a cold case involving a mother who disappeared with an infant at home, presumably murdered by the husband (a case that has bothered the head of Harry's new chief), a professional hit on two local pharmacists, father and son, who seem to be providing painkillers based on falsified prescriptions, and finally, one of the murderers Harry put away, on death row, petitions for release based on DNA evidence and an accusation that Harry planted the key evidence. The latter two stories are almost all of the book, with Harry going undercover, with DEA's blessing, to find the head of the operation and bring the killers to justice. The other story involves Harry, with Mickey Haller's help and investigator, trying to figure out how the DNA match to a dead convict and finding an old mentor to come back from the dead.

Connelly's social commentary is always interesting, from the book's title to publicizing the widespread, high-dollar world of prescription drug abuse, where law enforcement is falling down. There are "two kinds of truth in this world. The truth that was the unalterable bedrock of one’s life and mission. And the other, the malleable truth of politicians, charlatans, corrupt lawyers, and their clients, bent and molded to serve whatever purpose is at hand.” ( )

In Two Kinds of Truth Bosch is working cold cases part time for the San Fernando Police Department. Bosch has been accustomed to pointing out the failings of the original case handlers, now, he has the tables turned on him when a DNA cold case hit falls on one of his solved murders. Harry will resolve this through his own renewed investigation while also, with Bella Lourdes as lead detective, taking charge of the investigation of a double murder at a local farmacia." The double murder leads into a major Oxycodone drug distribution conspiracy which Bosch must deal with, while under considerable political pressure from departmental forces working within the LAPD to discredit him or worse.

I always like to return to Harry Bosch.

Harry now works for the San Fernando Police department after leaving the LAPD.
He helps them out with their Cold case files. He also volunteers to go undercover for them to investigate the murder of 2 pharmacists , this leads him to a place in the middle of the Desert, he is found out and about to be thrown out of a plane when he manages to over power the Baddies. He then decides to help one of the victims of Drug addiction.

Harry is also accused of planting evidence in a case nearly 30 years ago, he is going to be taken to court about this, he enlists the help of his half brother Mickey Haller the so called Lincoln Lawyer.
They discover it is a set up and the lawyers are struck off and the convicted murderer is sent back to his cell on Death row.

Good easy to read book with a sensible plot. ( )

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.
