Summary:

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.

    Love these series. Keep coming back for more! Always good to hear familiar names from other series.

    Was slow in the beginning, but stuck it out and glad I did. Wasn't the best book but it did have some unexpected turns which kept me interested.

  • Anonymous

    Author and Narrator perfectly matched...wonderful experience.

    This is more than classic Harry Bosch. This was Harry in Hong Kong ... out of his element but still able to function although there were some big mistakes on his part. That made this less formula and more interesting. Great Change up while keeping with the character already established.

  • Diane M

    I love Harry Bosch stories, and Len Cariou IS Harry Bosch. He is a wonderful narrator and is just perfect for Harry, as his world weary voice sounds like a middle-aged detective. He doesn't attempt a female voice for those characters, but that's fine. This story takes place mostly in Hong Kong with Harry's frantic search for his abducted daughter. There's an interesting twist towards the end of the story.

  • Jean

    Connelly always delivers a good story and the reader was excellent. This story gives a big change in the hero's life. The story is fast paced and full of action. Must say the ending did a surprise turn. A good Read.

  • Skyler

    Another great Harry Bosch read! The initial investigation into the killing of a Chinese owner of a convenience store in South-Central LA quickly spins up other events and Harry's world into a jumble of unanswered questions. The twists and turns lead Harry to Hong Kong to engage its seedy underbelly. Harry is a "fish out of water" in a strange land.
