Two Kinds of Truth

Little, Brown. Oct. 2017. 416p. ISBN 9780316225908. $29; ebk. ISBN 9780316225915. F
Forced into retirement and exiled from the LAPD, Harry Bosch (The Wrong Side of Goodbye) is doing battle in court against an overeager district attorney and a wrongful conviction claim—and the stakes couldn't be higher. Accused of planting the evidence that led to a death row conviction, Harry finds his professional reputation on the line. At the same time, he's working his first homicide in years—a professional hit of a father and son at their family pharmacy. The investigation reunites Bosch with former partner Jerry Edgar, now an investigator for the Medical Board of California. With Jerry's help, Harry goes undercover as a pill shill, and he learns just how ruthless prescription drug fraud can be.
VERDICT Connelly again delivers a solid crime mystery that will delight fans with his perpetually knocked down-detective managing to fight back with his integrity intact. Harry's half-brother Mickey Haller has a prominent role as his attorney, which should please fans of the Mickey Haller series. [See Prepub Alert, 4/24/17.]
