Just finished “9 Dragons” by Michael Connelly. This is the 14th book in the Harry Bosch series. This one has lots of momentum even for a Connelly story. Mickey Haller, another Connelly character who is Harry’s half-brother appears in the book. I am actually planning on starting the Haller series after I finish the Bosch novels.
9 Dragons was released in 2009. Connelly did some interesting videos to market the book. Most authors hadn’t gotten how effective this could be yet. I have shared a couple of them below.
“9 Dragons” is another enjoyable read from Connelly.
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 a 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.
