LAPD Detective Harry Bosch is off the chain in the fastest, fiercest, and highest-stakes case of his life.

Fortune Liquors is a small shop in a tough South L.A. neighborhood, a store Bosch has known for years. The murder of John Li, the store's owner, hits Bosch hard, and he promises Li's family that he'll find the killer.

The world Bosch steps into next is unknown territory. He brings in a detective from the Asian Gang Unit for help with translation--not just of languages but also of the cultural norms and expectations that guided Li's life. He uncovers a link to a Hong Kong triad, a lethal and far-reaching crime ring that follows many immigrants to their new lives in the U.S.

And instantly his world explodes. The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.
Featuring ebook bonus materials including an in-depth interview with the author about writing "Nine Dragons," photos from his exciting travels while writing the book, and a link to an online promotional video.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of Bosch Harry Bosch, L.A. homicide detective is sent to Fortune Liquors to investigate the death of John Li, the owner. What initially looks like a robbery gone bad turns out to be a lot more complicated. Li has been paying protection money to a Chinese triad. Just as Bosch is closing in on the triad member he suspects, he receives a threat to stop or there will be consequences. Of course, he doesn't stop. The triad member tries to leave the country with Bosch capturing him at the last moment. Then he receives a phone call that changes everything. His 13 year old daughter, Maddie who lives in Hong Kong with her mother has been kidnapped. Harry drops everything to go find her. Harry is totally out of his comfort zone. Even though he visits Maddie he does not really know the underbelly of Hong Kong. Harry teams together with Eleanor Wish, Maddie's mother and ex-FBI agent and Sun Yee, Eleanor's boyfriend. Together they track down the bad guys. I loved this book. Yes, some of the Hong Kong scenario was a bit far-fetched but the interweaving of the personal and work aspects is fantastic. I loved how conflicted Harry was at times and this made the story even more 'real'. Love that Bosch!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK read, not very accurate It's an OK read, but for someone with any knowledge of the Chinese language and culture, of Hong Kong and "triads", this book has a lot of holes. If you can get past that, it's a very easy and fun read.
