This October, Harry Bosch returns to investigate an all-new case with the San Fernando Police Department in Michael Connelly’s Two Kinds of Truth.
Following last year’s The Wrong Side of Goodbye, Connelly’s latest thriller, the twenty-second in his long-running and bestselling franchise, is set for an October 31st release date. Scroll down to check out the plot details below!
Harry Bosch is back as a volunteer working cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department and is called out to a local drug store where a young pharmacist has been murdered. Bosch and the town’s 3-person detective squad sift through the clues, which lead into the dangerous, big business world of pill mills and 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 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.
Those who haven’t read The Wrong Side of Goodbye, it was revealed in that book that Bosch (who’d previously left the LAPD on less than perfect terms) had taken a reserve role with the San Fernando Police Department to work on cold cases–something he has ample experience investigating. He also hires out his detective services as a private investigator from time to time, though he’s in no hurry to advertise that fact.
Just like in last year’s novel, it appears Bosch will once again juggle two cases in Two Kinds of Truth, one new and one from his past–both of which sound very intriguing.
Speaking of Harry Bosch, it was recently announced that Bosch, the Amazon-produced television show, would return for its third season on April 21, 2017. The author took to his official Facebook page today to share the official Season 3 trailer, which you can watch below. (Note: the entire season will be available for streaming on April 21st, but a subscription to Amazon Prime Video is required.)
Connelly, who turned 60 last July, also has another book coming out this year called The Late Show. While it’s not a Bosch novel, it does involve a detective with the LAPD, so fans should expect the same type of suspenseful, twisting, and nail-biting plot that Connelly is known for.
The Late Show stars Renee Ballard, a new character the author is introducing to readers, and comes out on July 18th. You can pre-order it (and learn more about the plot) here.
