Two Kinds of Truth by Michael Connelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I first started reading this book, I thought that Michael Connelly may have taken on a co-author. It just didn't seem like his writing style, but after a few chapters, I knew it was authentic Connelly. I can't really put my finger on why I thought that.
I love the character Harry Bosch, even more than the Lincoln Lawyer character. His character changes, but somehow stays the same. His personality is so well-defined. Then again, just when you think you know him, he does something surprising while staying in character to do so.
This book has two main plots. One of them is when Bosch responds to a call from a pharmacy and discovers that there are illegal clinics prescribing Oxycontin. Bosch has to go under cover to get to the bottom of the mystery. The other conflict involves a former case of his in which the defendant was found guilty, but new technology makes it seem as if he was wrongfully convicted. Is what's left of Bosch's career going to survive?
This was a pretty good page-turner after getting past the first few chapters. Everything had to be set up so that readers who have not read the entire series can till enjoy this title as a stand-alone.
