Nine Dragons

By Michael Connelly (Hardcover Book, 2009)
Harry Bosch is assigned a homicide call in South L.A. that takes him to Fortune Liquors, where the Chinese owner has been shot to death behind the counter in an apparent robbery.

Joined by members of the department's Asian Crime Unit, Bosch relentlessly investigates the killing and soon identifies a suspect, a Los Angeles member of a Hong Kong triad. But before Harry can close in, he gets the word that his young daughter Maddie, who lives in Hong Kong with her mother, is missing.

Bosch drops everything to journey across the Pacific to find his daughter. Could her disappearance and the case be connected? With the stakes of the investigation so high and so personal, Bosch is up against the clock in a new city, where nothing is at it seems.

  • Nine Dragons by Michael Connelly

  • PRAISE FOR THE BRASS VERDICT:

    "The Brass Verdict has the sneaky metabolism of any Connelly book. It starts slowly, moves calmly, hides pertinent bits of information in plain sight and then abruptly ratchets up its energy for the denouement....In the midst of this new story, Mickey rebounds with a vengeance....Like Harry Bosch's mojo, Mickey Haller's is liable to work well for a long time."
    (New York Times).

  • "If at first encounter Connelly seems primarily an exceptionally accomplished writer of crime novels, at closer examination he is also a mordant and knowing chronicler of the world in which crime takes place, i.e., our world....A terrific ride." (Washington Post).

  • "Harry Bosch [is] Connelly's usual hero and one of the great figures in contemporary crime fiction....Connelly is a master of plot, teasing out the lines of The Brass Verdict in a seemingly effortless way." (Los Angeles Times).

  • "Brilliantly plotted." (Christian Science Monitor).
