Two Kinds of Truth is the 22nd book in the Harry Bosch series and the 27th in the Bosch Universe. Between the books and the Amazon show, it seems Bosch is still going strong after 25 years.
While I have read some Michael Connelly in the past (I loved The Poet) this is my first Bosch novel. A fact I'm not proud of, but I will say it won't be my last.
In this installment, Bosch is working on two cases, a recent double murder, and a case from more than 2 decades prior that's been reopened due to new evidence and the advancement of DNA analysis. As the new case threatens to directly effect Bosch and potentially jeopardize his career, he has to work fast to ensure justice is both served and re-served.
What I loved most about this book is how fleshed out the characters are. Each has an individual personality, and even after 25 years, you can still see character development over the course of the novel.
You can tell just how comfortable Connelly has become with the characters and how much he enjoys writing them, they feel like real people. The book knows exactly what it is and does it extremely well. There's a level of writing here you only get from someone who's been writing and developing these characters as long as Michael has.
If you're into detective thrillers, this is an obvious choice, it doesn't get any better than Michael Connelly. The series being 22 books in already sounds daunting, but each is also written to stand alone, so it's never too late to jump in!
