Narrated by Titus Welliver
I just have to start by saying that after listening to this book, I have a total crush on Titus Welliver’s voice. I’m not sure what I ever thought Harry’s voice would sound like, but this is definitely it. So, “Two Kinds of Truth” is book 20 of 20 in the Harry Bosch series. I try as often as possible to read a series in order but for some reason, with Harry, I always end up with with a book at a different part of the series than the one before. Harry is no longer working for LAPD but instead is in San Fernando helping out with their murder squad, when he is called to the scene of a pharmacy where the father and son pharmacists have both been shot. Initially, the suspicion is that it may be gang related but it quickly becomes obvious that this is no ordinary gang killing. Soon, Harry finds his life on the line as he hunts for this ruthless killer.
Ahh, Harry Bosch. He’s like a favorite uncle for me. You know, the one with all the dangerous, exciting stories to tell. That’s the feeling I get whenever I pick up a book in this series. His former partner from earlier in the series makes a return visit in this story which makes for nice continuity. I also really enjoyed installments where Harry’s daughter makes an appearance. Some detectives are just meant to have a daughter and Harry is one of them. I really enjoy their relationship. This story has some tricky twists and a lawsuit against Harry as a sub-plot which adds to the drama. Basically, there is nothing I didn’t like about this book and if you haven’t discovered Harry Bosch yet…what are you waiting for?

If something bad ever happened to me in LA, I would want Harry Bosch to be the detective on the case. He’s tough on crime and criminals, but he doesn’t just leap to the easy or most obvious answer. Harry Bosch is a seeker of truth, even if the truth is very ugly. “Angels Flight” has some very ugly truths, and some very powerful people covering them up, but Bosch will not rest until he has unraveled every string in this knot. When a powerful lawyer, who is about to start a trial against the LAPD, is shot down on the Angels Flight railway, the Chief picks Harry and his team to lead up the investigation. Bosch knows he could become the fall guy for the department if there is even one misstep in the handling of this case. Was this a random shooting, someone out for revenge, or did one of LAPD’s own take down the department’s biggest enemy? You’ll have to get a copy so you can find out!
This is the 6th book in the Harry Bosch series and every bit as gripping as the ones that came before. I will admit that Bosch is one of my favorite male police detectives, so I was biased before I even started reading this one. In my defense, Michael Connelly has fleshed out his character in the kind of detail that makes you feel like you’ve known him all your life. I love that Bosch is tough but he also has a very tender side when it comes to his personal relationships. This is very evident in this book as he and his wife hit a rough patch, and a former partner makes a shocking confession. Another thing I have always enjoyed about this series is how the author incorporates real locations in LA into the story, which helps me to feel like I’m really there and these events could have really taken place. Hats off to Mr. Connelly for another great installment in this series.
