Harry Bosch is alone, without backup - and this time the case is personal. From the No. 1 bestselling author of The Lincoln Lawyer. Features in Amazon Prime's BOSCH TV series.

The shooting of a Chinese liquor store owner in LA brings Harry Bosch back to the Rodney King riots and the moment a stranger gave a young cop sanctuary. Now the debt must be repaid, and Harry soon discovers the old man's death was no ordinary hold-up.

Homing in on clues disregarded by the cops on the scene, Harry builds a picture of corruption and intimidation, with the local triads at the heart of it. But as he tries to build a case and breach the impenetrable wall of silence in the local community, he finds he is taking a dragon by the tail - a dragon whose talons reach well beyond LA, and even the States.

Suddenly the most precious thing in Harry's life is under threat, and he will need to leave the familiarity of his home turf, alone and without backup, if he is going to stop his worst nightmare from happening.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The plot twists twice in the final pages to create an astonishing climax to a thriller not short of heart-in-the-mouth moments. It's hard to keep a long-running crime series fresh yet in Nine Dragons Michael Connelly not only takes heroic Bosch to new places but changes his life forever. He just gets better and better * EVENING STANDARD *
Connelly manages to make Hong Kong every bit as vivid and dangerous as his depictions of LA. What's more, with Bosch on personal overdrive, the tension and pace he builds has never been greater, or more pertinent * DAILY MIRROR *
Though Connelly remains a master at detailing the intricacies of "the job," it is Harry's longing for reunion and connection with his ex-wife and daughter, the overwhelming vulnerability he feels as a father, that makes NINE DRAGONS another standout in the series that should satisfy all readers, whether they are new to Boschworld, occasional visitors or devoted denizens * LA TIMES *
NINE DRAGONS ... not only brings back popular Los Angeles homicide detective Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch, but also features an intricate, wide-ranging and utterly compelling story, to go with credible, sympathetic characters and exotic locations, unusual for Harry, who seldom leaves L.A. * GLOBE AND MAIL *
The globe-spanning element here expands the canvas, and there's an appearance by Connelly's other protagonist, sardonic Mickey Haller - plus some satisfying, out-of-the-blue narrative twists * INDEPENDENT *

“Can't wait to read more of Harry's cases!”

This was only my second book about Harry and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The storyline was great with quite a twist at the end and would recommend it to all my friends.

“Good Read”

Have always enjoyed Micheal Connelly's books and this was no exception. The plot flow's, not contrived as with some authors. This book was another of his Harry Bosch stories - now an old friend. Good to... More

“Gripping”

As with all the previous Harry Bosch novels I thoroughly loved it. One of the things I like best about Connelly's books is that the characters are so well developed, no matter how small a part they play. Sun Yee... More
