La svolta

Mickey Haller, avvocato della difesa da vent’anni, riceve dal procuratore della contea di Los Angeles l’insolita richiesta di guidare l’accusa in un caso di omicidio. Il presunto assassino, Jason Jessup, dopo ventiquattro anni trascorsi in carcere con l’accusa di aver ucciso una ragazzina, sta per essere scagionato grazie a un recente esame del DNA. Convinto invece della sua colpevolezza, Haller accetta l’incarico, ma vuole accanto a sé il detective Harry Bosch, per trovare le prove che consegnino definitivamente alla giustizia il criminale.
Ma il compito è tutt’altro che facile e il loro cammino è intralciato da un’infinità di ostacoli: Clive Royce, l’avvocato difensore di Jessup, abilissimo manipolatore, lo stesso Jessup, che li sfida di continuo, sicuro com’è di cavarsela, e soprattutto una testimone in fuga, che si è lasciata alle spalle l’atroce vicenda e ha fatto perdere le sue tracce. Insieme i due si battono per far luce su un crimine che non può restare impunito e per incastrare l’assassino prima che colpisca di nuovo, prendendo di mira ciò che hanno di più caro. Perché entrambi, al momento, hanno una sola certezza: che il killer ucciderà ancora.

Harry Bosch, exiled from the LAPD, is working cold cases for the San Fernando Police Department when all hands are called out to a local drugstore, where two pharmacists have been murdered in a robbery. Bosch and the tiny town's three-person detective squad sift through the clues, which lead into the dangerous, big-business world of prescription drug abuse. To get to the people at the top, Bosch must risk everything and go undercover in the shadowy world of organized pill mills.
Meanwhile, an old case from Bosch's days with the LAPD 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 are not keen on protecting his reputation. But if this conviction is overturned, every case Bosch ever worked will be called into question. As usual, he must fend for himself as he tries to clear his name and keep a clever killer in prison.
The two 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.
Tense, fast-paced, and fueled by this legendary detective's unrelenting sense of mission, Two Kinds of Truth is proof positive that "Connelly writes cops better than anyone else in the business" (New York Post).
