I want to thank Miriam with Hachette for sending me a copy of this book to review.

It seems that John’s death was not an accident. All signs point towards a connection to a huge Hong Kong triad gang. All of Harry’s questions have may someone very nervous. When Harry’s daughter is kidnapped, all bets are off. Beware a father who vengeance in his sights.
Nine Dragons is the latest novel by Mr. Connelly. I have not been a fan for very long but so far every book that I have read by this author I have liked a lot. Detective Harry at first impressions can come off brash and abrasive but this is one of the reason I liked him. Besides, Harry grows on you and you can’t help but cheer for him to get the bad guys. In Nine Dragon’s Harry showed both his hard exterior and his soft family side. This story will takes readers on a journey from California to Hong Kong. Detective Harry Bosch has been featured in a long standing series. The best thing is that you can start this series from the beginning, middle, or now. Mr. Connelly keeps things fresh with great characters and Adeline pumping story lines.
