...the must-read follow-up to last year’s The Wrong Side of Goodbye ... This series, now twenty books in, just keeps getting better and better. Two Kinds of Truth is some of Michael Connelly’s finest work yet, and a real contender for best crime novel of the year.
Two Kinds of Truth is a well-written and interesting crime thriller that exposes the all-too-real crime of pill mills and illegal prescription drug addiction. Fans of Harry Bosch, as well as readers new to the series, will enjoy this crime novel.
Connelly, through Bosch’s eyes, provides a by-the-numbers description of prescription drug abuse, how it occurs, and why it continues to thrive ... It is Connelly’s descriptions and Bosch’s investigation that help make Two Kinds of Truth one of the author’s most intriguing books in a consistently brilliant career.
All the structural problems you’d expect from jamming two urgent but unrelated cases together: during much of the second half, Connelly (The Late Show, 2017, etc.) seems to be tying up increasingly low-impact loose ends.
