I liked the front part, but when Harry Bosch went to Hong Kong, I kind of checked out. I ended up speed reading that part (i.e., reading every other page or so), then I read the end part. When the twist came at the end, it wasn't really a twist -- no surprise there.

However, I did like the writing (I like characters who talk to themselves in their head), and the intro to the next book which came after this sounded interesting, so I may give this author another try. ( )

Harry Bosch is called out to a murder in a bad part of LA, of a Chinese man he shared a cigarette with during the riots. Led astray by the murderers, Harry jets off to Hong Kong to save his daughter, whom he believes has been kidnapped to stop his investigation. Tragically, Harry's ex-wife is killed in the rescue, and Harry returns to LA to solve the mystery with his 13-year old daughter in tow. ( )

Absolute quality.
The author is a master in the art of story telling, brilliant characters engaging and entertaining, gripping from first to last page, clever intelligent with plenty of surprising plot twists.
Completely and utterly recommend. ( )

Harry Bosch, now fifty-eight, has carried with him for the past twelve years a match-book with only one match missing and bearing the words "Happy is the man who finds refuge within himself." In Nine Dragons, the book of matchs reminds Harry of a moment of terror when sheltered with John Li who gave him his last cigarette. Li has been found murdered in his liquor store. Bosh vows to hunt down his killer. Nine Dragons, is the most action packed of all of Connelly's Harry Bosch novels to this one. Most of the action takes place in Kowloon (Nine Dragons),Hong Kong when Harry's daughter Madeline is kidnapped by a gang of organ harvesters. In the course of the stuggle to retrieve Madeline, her mother, Eleanor Wish is killed. Bosch brings his daughter back to LA to live with him and with the help of a new forensic technique --electrostatic enhancement -- solves the initial murder but at the cost of losing his partner, Ignacio Ferras who is killed in a shoot-out. As the novel ends, Harry has taken on a new mission -- to protect and serve his daughter.

Whenever authors interrupt a conventional plot to send their series sleuth to some exotic clime, you tend to suspect them of writing off a vacation as a research trip. Michael Connelly doesn’t quite put that suspicion to rest with Nine Dragons, in which he takes a long pause from an investigation into the murder of an old Chinese shopkeeper in Los Angeles and dispatches his detective, Harry Bosch, on a daredevil mission to Hong Kong. But Connelly goes on to resolve both Harry’s home-turf case and that nasty business in Hong Kong in his customary ­double-barreled style of action and intelligence. So let’s just say that a good writer can get away with just about anything he wants to.
 
The center of the book is a breathless, bloody quest through a city Bosch barely knows, a teeming metropolis of skyscrapers and high finance in the midst of celebrating the ancient Festival of Hungry Ghosts. It's a foray outside his usual haunts that works, and one that takes him into new emotional territory as well.
 
Harry's personal and professional lives overlap in the engrossing Nine Dragons, the 15th novel — and one of the best — in this series. Nine Dragons works as a gripping police procedural, an intense character study and an international thriller. The novel also explores a man learning to become a father, serves as a travel guide to the back streets of Hong Kong police and provides an in-depth look at Los Angeles' Asian community.
 
To say that "Nine Dragons" is coiled tight with suspense understates Connelly's accomplishment in portraying Bosch at the cusp of a new world... And 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.

The appearance of a third Connelly title in a year would be excellent news if Nine Dragons, his latest offering, didn't read like it had been scribbled during a red-eye from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, the two cities where the slapdash action unfolds.

From across the aisle Harry Bosch looked into his partner's cubicle and watched him conduct his daily ritual of straightening the corners of his stacks of files, clearing the paperwork from the center of his desk and finally placing his rinsed-out coffee cup in a desk drawer.
